FHE: Holy Ghost - Halloween

Opening Song: Family Night

Opening Prayer

Halloween is this week.
What are some symbols you think of when you hear the word Halloween?
(Jack-o'-lanterns, black cats, witches, skeletons, ghosts, etc...)
Today we are going to talk about a ghost.
Not just any ghost though...
We're going to talk about the Holy Ghost.
The Holy Ghost is not a scary ghost.
Instead of being scary, it helps us when we're scared or afraid.
The Holy Ghost can comfort us.

Found in Behold Your Little Ones: Nursery Manual (Lesson 6)

The Holy Ghost has many names...
The comforter.
The Spirit.
The Spirit of the Lord.
The Spirit of God.
The still small voice.

The Holy Ghost is called the still small voice because he doesn't speak loudly.
He tells us things in a quiet voice or most often in a feeling.

How do you feel when you do something that is good?
How do you feel when you do something wrong?
He gives us a happy, warm feeling when something is right
& a bad or sad feeling when something is wrong.

The Holy Ghost will help us know what's right & what's wrong,
but we have to be willing to listen & choose the right.

First stanza of the poem 'Help from the Holy Ghost' by Erin Renouf Mylroie
I'm learning how to choose the right.
I'll do my best both day and night.
But when I'm not sure what to do,
The Holy Ghost will help me through.

Closing Song: The Holy Ghost

Closing Prayer

Activity: We watched The Nightmare Before Christmas,
but Casper would probably fit the theme better if you wanted to watch something (;

Treat: Banana Ghosts
