Holy Ghost Baptism Talk





Update April 2013:  Hello Friends!  Thanks for visiting my blog and your interest in this Holy Ghost talk.  I've had this talk up for almost 3 years and it's still my most visited blog post- thanks!  I've been offering the pdf for free, which was fine when I got 2-3 email requests a week, but lately it's been like 80 requests a week and I can barely keep up!  To help make up for my time, I'm going to start selling the pdf file for $1.  Feel free to use my idea, or make your own traffic light, but if you would like an email containing my designed pdf, click the paypal link below and I will email it over within 24 hours.  The pdf file includes 4 pages, the traffic light, the talk, and the bookmarks in color and black and white.  Thanks!!



I serve in the children's primary organization at church, and I created this talk for baptisms. I always end up speaking at several baptisms a year, and I've loved using this concept. Last month I submitted my ideas to Sugardoodle, and I've received lots of emails for copies of the talk. To save myself from answering a million emails (although I love to hear from you) I decided to just post the talk here.




And for Missy - who had the great idea of her children coloring in the red, yellow and green circles on the bookmarks. Great idea Missy!!

Your traffic light talk is fabulous! Thank you for sharing your things with people like me who have talents in "other" areas.

Great idea! Can I make one request? Could you add a black & white version of the second graphic? I'd like to have the kids color their own traffic lights, if you're able to post a B&W version. Love it!

Missy said...

Thank you!

I used this for my sharing time on Sunday and asked 3 Primary teachers in Sr. and 3 in Jr. in advance to share an experience related to a time when they were either prompted to repent (Stop), warned of danger (yellow), or taught (green) by the Holy Ghost. It was a great idea and the kids all were very quiet. The Spirit was very strong. I had the kids in Jr. Primary color the traffic light bookmark. For the kids in Sr. Primary, I copied and laminated the one already done so that they could have it as a bookmark. Thanks for posting this and making it so easy to use! Stephanie

I love this and I'm planning on converting it to a FHE. Could you please send me the pdfs? jmlwilliams@yahoo.com Thanks!

The Shiflet Family said...

Thank you for sharing your wonderful idea. I used the traffic light for my niece's baptism a couple of weeks ago, and everyone loved it. I did the same lesson for FHE the next week, and even my three year old understood it. Thank you for making my life easier! You are a very talented person. :)

J & M Squared said...

I love this idea! This may be a silly question, but I am wondering how you velcroed on the colors to the traffic light without covering up the words, or if you even had words written on yours or just had them tell you what they were. Thanks

Terra Johnson said...

I love this idea. I too would like to use it for my nieces baptism this upcoming weekend. Do you think that you could email me the pdf files for printing also? Thank you for sharing your ideas!

robert mccord said...

Look and u will see listen and u will hear ask and u shall receive these words have more meaning than u know.Want to know if the spirit is with u just ask with your mind just as if you were asking a ? In your thoughts John said I'd rather speak 5 words in mind than 10,000 in tounge.Just for fun give this a try stand up put your feet together and just with thought ask the spirit if he can hear you.The answer comes as a very soft movement ever so slight. Would like to know what you think about it.
