At the beginning of the meeting, repeat together the Young Women Theme or the Aaronic Priesthood Quorum Theme. Then lead a discussion about the work of salvation and exaltation using one or more of the questions below or questions of your own (see General Handbook, 10.2, 11.2, ChurchofJesusChrist.org). Plan ways to act on what you discuss.
Live the gospel. How can turning to the Lord help us deal with our challenges and trials?
Care for those in need. Who do we know who needs our prayers and our friendship?
Invite all to receive the gospel. What plans to share the gospel have been discussed in ward youth council meetings? How can our class or quorum get involved?
Unite families for eternity. How can doing family history work strengthen our relationships with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ?
At the end of the lesson, as appropriate, do the following:
Testify of the principles taught.
Remind quorum or class members about the plans and invitations made during the meeting.
Many early members of the restored Church had read about the spiritual manifestations of the Holy Ghost in the scriptures (see Acts 2:1–4; 13:52; 1 Corinthians 12:4–11; 3 Nephi 19). As quorum or class members studied Doctrine and Covenants 46–48 this week, they may have learned that the Lord was eager to teach these Saints about the blessings the Holy Ghost could bring into their lives. What experiences have taught you how the Holy Ghost blesses you? How can the Holy Ghost help those you teach in all aspects of their lives?
To help you prepare to inspire your quorum or class to seek the influence of the Holy Ghost, you might review “Roles of the Holy Ghost” in True to the Faith (, 82) and Elder Gary E. Stevenson’s message “How Does the Holy Ghost Help You?”
(Ensign or Liahona, May 2017, 117–20).
The scriptures give many examples of spiritual gifts. How can you help build quorum or class members’ faith that these gifts can be manifest in our lives today? You could begin by inviting them to write on the board a spiritual gift described in Doctrine and Covenants 46:7–33 and to discuss how they have seen it manifested in their lives or the life of someone they know.
In addition to the gifts of the Spirit, the Holy Ghost blesses us in many other ways. You can use one or more of the activities below to help quorum or class members better understand this.
Sometimes we think we need the Holy Ghost only for important decisions or events in our lives. How can you help those you teach recognize how much more the Holy Ghost can do for them? You could divide the quorum or class into small groups and ask each group to read one or more of the scriptures
Divide the young women into small groups. Ask each group to read a few scriptures about the Holy Ghost (such as those suggested in this outline). Invite one young woman from each group to share with the rest of the class what her group’s scriptures teach about the roles of the Holy Ghost. Invite the young women to share personal experiences they have had in which the Holy Ghost has helped them in any of these ways.
Place the pictures on the chalkboard. Pass out the scripture cards. Have the young women read the scripture to the then choice what pictures the scripture goes with. Some pictures have more than one answer.
John 14:26 (The Comforter can teach us and bring all things to our remembrance)
Romans 8:16 (The Spirit bears witness that we are children of God)
Galatians 5:22–23 (Paul describes the fruit of the Spirit)
2 Nephi 32:5 (The Holy Ghost will show us what we should do)
3 Nephi 27:20 (The reception of the Holy Ghost sanctifies us)
Moroni 8:26 (The Holy Ghost fills us with hope and love)
Moroni 10:5 (The Holy Ghost teaches us the truth)
How Does the Holy Ghost Help You?
Another way to help those you teach understand how the Holy Ghost can help them is to write the following questions on the board: What do we know about the Holy Ghost? How can the Holy Ghost help us?
Then quorum or class members could search for answers in Elder Gary E. Stevenson’s message “How Does the Holy Ghost Help You?”
(Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2017, 117–20). They could also find answers by reviewing “Roles of the Holy Ghost” in True to the Faith (page 82)
. Ask each young woman to select one of the Holy Ghost’s roles and look for scriptures or scriptural stories that teach about that role
. Invite the young women to share with each other what they find. Encourage them to share experiences in which the Holy Ghost helped them in these ways. As appropriate, share experiences you have had with the Holy Ghost, and invite the youth to share experiences they have had.
Encourage quorum or class members to ponder and record what they will do to act on the impressions they received today. How does today’s lesson relate to personal goals they have made? If they would like, quorum or class members could share their ideas.
