FHE Inspiration (From LDS Living)

-by Shauna Gibby

Inspiration"The invitation to ask, seek, and knock for divine direction exists because God lives and Jesus is the living Christ." -Russell M. Nelson

Conference Talk:
For more information on this topic read "Ask, Seek, Knock," by Russell M. Nelson, Ensign, Nov 2009, 81-84.

Every Latter-day Saint may merit personal revelation. The invitation to ask, seek, and knock for divine direction exists because God lives and Jesus is the living Christ. (Russell M. Nelson, "Ask, Seek, Knock," Ensign, Nov 2009, 81-84.)

"Tell Me Dear Lord," Children's Songbook, p. 176.

For behold, thus saith the Lord God: I will give unto the children of men line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little; and blessed are those who hearken unto my precepts, and lend an ear unto my counsel, for they shall learn wisdom; for unto him that receiveth I will give more; and from them that shall say, We have enough, from them shall be taken away even that which they have. (2 Nephi 28:30)

Object Lesson:
Objective: To demonstrate the effect of personal inspiration in our lives.

Materials needed: An alarm clock.

Procedure: Display the alarm clock. Ask the class if they ever lie in bed and, without looking at the clock, know that the alarm is about ready to go off? Point out that those instinctive feelings can be very strong.

In October of 1984, I returned from an assignment out of the state, arriving home at perhaps eight P.M. I discovered that an urgent telephone call had come from the mother and father of a young woman whose husband had been diagnosed as having a tumor on his brain. At the time he was a patient in the University Hospital. A blessing had been requested at my convenience.

Play "Hot or Cold." Everyone leaves the room except for one person, who hides a small object, such as a coin, key, or thimble. Most of the object needs to be in plain sight. The rest of the family then returns to the room and searches for the object. When someone spots the object, he or she sits down and yells out some prearranged comment such as "Hot dog," or "I know where it is." The rest of the family continues to hunt until everyone has found the object.
