The Holy Ghost

Last Sunday I taught the kids the song The Holy Ghost.
I started out by whispering "If you can hear me touch your nose, If you can hear me touch your head, if you can hear me reverently fold your arms." The kids followed my instructions and I told them that if we listen carefully we can listen to the Holy Ghost and follow his instructions even though it is a still small voice. Then I had the pianist play it through once while we clapped the beat. Then I told the kids that the beat was steady and constant just like the Holy Ghost. He will be our constant companion as long as we are worthy.
Then we learned the words. It went pretty well. I just found pictures on the web and also from the Friend and put them in page protectors. Then I put them all in a binder and just turned the pages as the kids sang.
