Review the 3 ways we can hear the Saviors voice. (Write these each on a separate piece of paper and hand out to family to read.)
1.I search the scriptures I can hear His words of Peace.
2. I hear the living prophet speak the things that Christ would say.
3. I feel the Holy Spirit as He teaches the truth and right.
Closing Our Savior Jesus Christ love us very much. He has given us many ways for us to still hear his voice and feel his spirit in our live everyday. We must listen with our heart to hear the Saviors voice.
