{Sharing Time} The Holy Ghost is the Third Member of the Godhead.

Sharing Time Ideas from the 2015 Outline

Introduce the doctrine: Help the children memorize the first article of faith by dividing them into three groups. Point to a group and have them say, “We believe in God, the Eternal Father.” Point to another group and have them say, “And in His Son, Jesus Christ.” Point to the third group and have them say, “And in the Holy Ghost.” Repeat, giving each group a turn to say each phrase. (You may want to have younger children hold up fingers for each phrase.) Explain that Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost are the three members of the Godhead. Tell the children that the Holy Ghost is a spirit, without a body of flesh and bones.

Encourage understanding and application: Invite the children to open their scriptures and read Doctrine and Covenants 130:22 together. Ask them to listen for why the Holy Ghost does not have a body. Read Doctrine and Covenants 8:2. Have the children point to their heads when you say “mind” and to their hearts when you say “heart.” Share examples of how the Holy Ghost might speak to your mind and your heart (see Galatians 5:22). Consider having children share times when they have felt the influence of the Holy Ghost.

Encourage understanding and application: Divide the children into five groups. Give each group one of the following scripture references, and have them identify how the Holy Ghost helps us: John 14:26 (comforts and teaches); 2 Nephi 32:5 (tells us what we should do); Mosiah 5:2 (changes our hearts); Moroni 8:26 (fills us with hope and love); Doctrine and Covenants 20:27 (testifies of Christ). Invite each group to tell the rest of the Primary what they learned.

Sharing Time Ideas from Little LDS IdeasFor this week’s Sharing Time I used ideas from the outline, but also got a little help from a previous idea I shared years ago (Here). I’ve changed it up a bit to fit this week’s theme a little better. Hope you like it!

Begin your sharing time by splitting the primary into 3 groups. Have the groups sit in a circle, and have one adult help each group. Hand each group a part of the 1st Article of Faith and have them repeat it several times.

After a few minutes have all the groups come to the front of the primary room to repeat their part. Point to group #1 and have them say their part…then group #2…then group #3.

After you have had everyone repeat their parts together explain that Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost are the three members of the Godhead.

Holy Ghost Quiz

At the front of the primary room have a bell or buzzer. Invite 2 children to come to the front for a short Holy Ghost quiz.

Have the children stand across from each other with the bell/buzzer in the middle.

Read the questions aloud and have them ring the bell if they know the answer.

Here are some examples of questions:

1.     Does the Holy Ghost have a body of flesh and bone? {D&C 130:22}

2.     When do you receive the Holy Ghost?

3.     Is the Holy Ghost the 1st member of the Godhead?

4.     Can the Holy Ghost speak to you? {D&C 8:2}

After the Holy Ghost Quiz read the scripture {D&C 8:2} aloud. Have the children point to their head when you say “mind” and to their hearts when you say “heart”.

Holy Ghost I Spy

Next, you will be placing several items that will help identify how the Holy Ghost helps us. Place all the items onto the table at the front of the primary room. Each item will have a coordinating scripture.

Invite one child up to the front and have him/her look at all the items. Then read one of the scriptures (below) aloud. Have the child pick the item that they think best describes that scripture.

John 14:26– Comforts & Teaches {blanket & picture of school/book/etc.}

2 Nephi 32:5– Tells Us What We Should Do {Map/Compass/etc.}

Mosiah 5:2– Changes Our Hearts.{Picture of a heart}

Moroni 8:6– Fills Us With Hope & Love {measuring cup with ‘Hope’ & ‘Love}

D&C 20:27– Testifies of Christ {Picture of Christ}

Discuss with the children the many different ways the Holy Ghost helps us. If time permits, invite a few children to share times when they have felt the influence of the Holy Ghost.

I hope you like my idea for this week’s Sharing Time. If you have any questions or ideas you’d like to share just send me an email to

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day & a great Sharing Time!

2 Nephi 31-Jacob 4

This has been a fun few days for me in class.  I’m not sure if it’s because I’m back in the groove or because the stress level is back down or what, but things have been good.  The only issue has been that I’m barely keeping ahead of the lessons.  I did get two lessons planned yesterday, so I am now a single lesson ahead.  I’m hoping to get some…

Feast On The Words Of Christ For They Will Tell Us What To Do-

Downloaded from: I have always been an advocate of planning with a purpose, making sure our activities have a purpose.  Whether it is unifying, personal progress or service.

We have been wanting to do some service, so we decided to make some food for some families in our ward who were sick, or just needed…

Mark a list

Oftentimes the Lord makes a list of attributes or qualities that are worth noting and titling in our margins. Have students “mark a list’ of items in their scriptures. Look for items set off by commas, or lists of things to get a certain result. The items may be contained in more than one verse. EXAMPLE: While teaching Amos 4, I asked students to mark in their scriptures the ways…
