Listen to the Still, Small Voice



A blanket or a quilt can make your body feel warm, just as the Holy Ghost can
give your spirit a feeling of warmth and peace. Learn more about the Holy Ghost
by looking up each of the scripture references on the quilt. You might want to
underline the words Comforter, Holy Spirit, or Holy Ghost in
your scriptures. Then color the quilt patch. Hang your picture near your bed to
remind you that the Holy Ghost can comfort you and that your faith will grow as
you listen to His promptings.

Ricks, “Listen to the Still, Small Voice,”
Friend, Aug 2007, 10–12

For, behold, the Comforter knoweth all things, and beareth record
of the Father and of the Son (D&C 42:17).

What are some important things to know? We need to know how to tie our shoes.
We need to know how to write our names.

There is one thing that is more important than anything else. We find this in
John 17:3.
John records the words that Jesus spoke to His Father, our Heavenly Father: “And
this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus
Christ, whom thou hast sent.” Knowing our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus
Christ, is the most important knowledge you will ever have. This knowledge is
called a testimony.

How can we find things out? We are blessed to have two sets of
parents—earthly parents and heavenly parents. When you need to know something
like how to tie your shoes, your earthly parents can help. They can also use
dictionaries, science books, and the scriptures to help answer your questions.

To have a testimony of sacred things, you can ask Heavenly Father. He usually
uses the third member of the Godhead—the Holy Ghost—to answer you. The Holy
Ghost bears witness of the Father and the Son. Through His still, small voice,
the Holy Ghost can witness to you that Jesus is the Son of God. He can witness
to you that Joseph Smith restored the gospel and that we have a prophet today.
In the Book of Mormon, Moroni tells us that through the power of the Holy Ghost,
we can know the truth of all things (see Moroni 10:5).

As you listen to the still, small voice, you can have a testimony. Your faith
in Jesus Christ will grow when you listen to the Holy Ghost.
