    Song: “The Holy Ghost” (Children’s Songbook, 105)

    Scripture: Galatians 5:22–23

    Activity

    • Set a timer for one minute. How many different kinds of fruit can your family name?

    • Read “Paul’s Letters” (FJ4). One thing the Apostle Paul taught the people of Galatia was about the “fruit of the Spirit.” Like a tree that gives us fruit, the Holy Ghost can give us wonderful blessings.

    • Talk about what blessings come from the Holy Ghost. (For a hint, look at Galatians 5:22–23.)

    • What can your family do to invite the Holy Ghost into your home this week? Choose one thing to do. (See family manual, pages 151–152.*)

    Russian Apple Cake

    Have you explored Russia yet on page 14? Here’s how to make a Russian cake called sharlotka.

    1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Peel and chop 5 large green apples into small pieces and put them in a greased 9x13-inch (23x33-cm) pan.

    2. In a bowl, beat 4 eggs and 1 cup sugar for 2–3 minutes.

    3. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Then gently stir in 1 cup flour.

    4. Pour the batter over the apples in the pan and bake for 40–50 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when you stick it in.

    5. Let the cake cool, and then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Enjoy!
