Megan is so excited that she is now eight, and she can't wait to be baptized and receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost (less than three weeks!). She has already started working on the Faith in God requirements. On Monday she taught our Family Home Evening lesson. It was about the Holy Ghost. She had a white lunch sack and a flash light. She shined the flashlight into the bag and told us how having the Holy Ghost with us helps us feel light. She assigned scriptures to each member of the family and had them read it, then tell us what it taught us about the role of the Holy Ghost.
John 14:26 (comforts uas and teaches us)
2 Nephi 32:5 (tells us what we should do)
Mosiah 5:2 (changes our hearts)
Mornoi 8:26 (fills us with love and hope)
Doctrine and Covenants 20:27 (testifies of Christ)
Moroni 10:5 (tells us what is true)
She closed with a simple and sweet testimony. "I know the Holy Ghost is real. I know that He can comfort us when we are sad or scared. I know he can help us know what is right."
