Object Lessons

Ensign July 2016 Recognizing promptings from the Holy Ghost: “I put various hard foods–such as rice, beans, pasta shells, and peppercorns–into opaque plastic containers, using two containers for each food item. We then challenged our children to match the foods by shaking the containers and listening carefully. After a few rounds I asked how this activity might be compared to identifying the voice of the Spirit among other distracting influences. Before long, the older children were telling about their experiences with the Holy Ghost, and we all gained an appreciation for what it means to hear and feel the still, small voice.” Anita L. Reeves
