023 How to Recognize the Holy Ghost with Julie Ferguson
My Teaching Matters
President Nelson has said, “In coming days, it will not be possible to survive spiritually without the guiding, directing, comforting, and constant influence of the Holy Ghost”. As parents, not only do we have to learn how to recognize the Holy Ghost on our own, but we need to help our children learn to listen to the Holy Ghost as well. Today I talk with Julie Ferguson, a mom of three children who has been documenting all the different ways the Holy Ghost speaks to her and she has had some amazing insights she wants to share with us because of it. Not only has she been paying attention to her own experiences with the Holy Ghost, but she has been actively teaching her children to recognize the Holy Ghost as well… The result? Some pretty incredible stories about her young children learning to recognize and act on their own promptings. You won’t want to miss this. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/myteachingmatters/message
