• Holy Ghost Helps You - Learning and Living the Gospel

    In the Faith in God Book under Learning and Living the Gospel, there is the following requirement:

    Mark these verses about the Holy Ghost in your scriptures: John 14:16–17, 2 Nephi 32:5, and Moroni 10:5. Discuss ways the Holy Ghost helps you.

    Since I’m pretty sure chocolate= happiness and the Holy Ghost is supposed to lead us to happiness, then an activity where the “Holy Ghost” helps us make brownies seems perfect :). Also I haven’t tried a recipe from Our Best Bites that I didn't love, so this should be a real treat!

    Start the activity by passing out a recipe card with some blanks in it. The participants will get to fill this out as they try to listen to the “Holy Ghost”. This recipe card represents how we get a lot of direction in our lives through scriptures, church, prayer and so forth. This recipe card is an awesome start to knowing what to do, but we are going to need the help of the Holy Ghost to fill in the blanks. 

    Next, you'll want to have the "Holy Ghost Help You Cards" ready. Since there are 9 ingredient to the brownies, there are nine of these cards. This will give 9 participants an opportunity to pretend to a prophet and then pretend to be the Holy Ghost. The cards is a strip of paper folded in 3 so you can't see the ingredient when you pick it up, you just see the front side that looks like this: 

    When you flip it over, the participant is to read an exert about the Holy Ghost from LDS.org. They can pretend like they are a prophet and say it loudly for everyone to hear. 

    Next, the participant will want to turn their backs to the crowd and WHISPER in a still, small voice their ingredient. This is when everyone will try super hard to listen so they can fill out their ingredient card. Everyone should be quiet and there is no repeating or sharing answers. There will be a time for this at the end. 

    Once all 9 cards have been played, everyone should have their recipe cards filled out, but I imagine some ingredients were missed or written down incorrectly. Allow the participants to come together and with the help of the leader make sure their recipe is correct. Once everyone has a correct recipe, allow everyone into the kitchen to make the brownies!
    If everyone brought their scriptures, while the brownies are baking would be a good time to mark them with the verses and maybe share personal stories of when the Holy Ghost helped them. Also pass out this handout for them to take home and hang up :)

    I used this brownie recipe for the activity:
    Perfect Chocolate Brownies
    Recipe (with minimal adaptations) from Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, Baked NYC and Baked: New Frontiers in Baking
    1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons unsweetened Dutch Process cocoa powder
    11 ounces dark chocolate, roughly chopped
    1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch chunks
    optional: 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
    1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
    5 eggs, at room temperature*
