“My Special Place,” Friend, June 2016, 36
There is a place I like to go
To listen for the Spirit.
It isn’t very far away.
In fact, I’m always near it.
My scriptures are quite close at hand,
My picture of the temple,
My journal where I write my thoughts—
It couldn’t be more simple.
I hum a song. I kneel to pray.
A quiet and peaceful feeling
Comes to my heart and lets me know
The Holy Ghost is speaking.
Add peaceful things like scriptures, pictures, and good music.
Take time to pray. Keep kneeling and listen.
Write down your thoughts and feelings.
You remember something you’ve learned before.
You want to do something good or help others.
You have a quiet, happy feeling.
You feel warned to not do something.
You feel comforted.
