The Holy Ghost is sometimes called the Comforter. Read “Sarah and the MRI” on page 4. When Sarah was comforted by the Holy Ghost, she felt like she was being wrapped in a blanket. How else can the Holy Ghost help you? Do this activity with your family! (You could all wear blankets for this lesson!)
Make these tasty edible blankets with your family! Be sure to get an adult’s help.
1 can of refrigerated crescent-roll dough
Separate the dough into triangles. Arrange the triangles in pairs to make rectangles.
Brush each rectangle with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
Layer two or three apple slices on the top half of a rectangle. Fold the dough up from the bottom to mostly cover the apples.
Seal the edges and brush the folded dough with butter. Sprinkle with more cinnamon-sugar.
Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Here are some tips to help you feel the Holy Ghost when you get a priesthood blessing.
Turn off electronics so you won’t be distracted.
Say a prayer before you receive your blessing to help you clear your mind and focus on the Spirit.
Listen carefully to the words of the blessing. How do they make you feel?
Put 3/4 cup peanut butter and 1/2 cup honey in a pan. Cook and stir over medium heat until smooth (get an adult’s help). Remove from heat and mix in 3 cups oats or a favorite cold cereal. Spread the mixture in a square pan and refrigerate until firm.
Look for these pictures in the magazine to find the stories and articles they go with! (Find the page numbers below.)
Idea 1: Get ready for general conference by reading “A Friendly Primary Visitor.” Draw a control tower and write down one thing the prophet has asked us to do.
Idea 3: What temple do you live closest to? Farthest from? Read “From Paris to Sapporo.” Draw a picture of the temple to remind you to prepare to enter the temple someday.
