Gordon B. Hinckley- Chapter 7: The Whisperings of the Spirit

The Whisperings of the Spirit is one way God speaks to us.

Last week we discussed prayer. One way we receive answers to those prayers is through the whisperings of the Spirit. Chapter 7 of the Gordon B. Hickley manual is titled, The Whisperings of the Spirit.

Those whisperings occur to us in many ways. One of those ways is through dreams. Elder Richard G. Scott spoke about this in General Conference of April 2012.

The Lord uses individuals for whom we have great respect to teach us truths in a dream because we trust them and will listen to their counsel.
-Elder Richard G. Scott

Another way we hear the whisperings of the Spirit is through the still small voice. A couple years ago I sang Mendelssohn’s Elijah with the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras. One song that changed how I think about the Holy Ghost was “Behold, God the Lord Passed By”. (Listen on Spotify)

Elder Bednar does a good job of describing how the Spirit speaks to us in the video series Patterns of Light.

I mentioned my mission president in this episode. I wrote more about this in my post, 5 Things I Wish My Mission President Told Me .

What we have been up to:

Heather Mecham of LDS Youth Leadership was our guest this week. We have both been working on our contributions for the Church’s #PRINCEofPEACE initiative. She is collecting testimonies of how Jesus Christ is a source of peace. You can read them here, and submit your own at the bottom of that page.

For my #PRINCEofPEACE contribution, I interviewed my sister about when she returned to activity in the Church and the faith it took to make that change. I also shared my thoughts on Deseret Book’s new service, Bookshelf PLUS. It is an enhancement on their Bookshelf app that allows streaming access to thousands of audiobooks, talks, and ebooks. They have a free 30-day trial right now and I’d encourage you to check it out.
