Book review: 'The Holy Ghost' is compared to real-life constructs in a child's life
As children are baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, they are then confirmed members of the church and blessed with the Holy Ghost.
That intangible notion can be confusing to an 8-year-old, but Annalisa Hall and Coey Egbert portray caring parents using 12 real-life constants that can be compared to the Holy Ghost’s spirit.
“The Holy Ghost is like the wind. You can feel the wind’s power .You can feel the Holy Ghost in your heart ”
“The Holy Ghost is like a blanket. He is a special gift to wrap you in a warm and comforting feeling when you are sad or need a friend.”
In end notes, the author has included scriptural references and appropriate song titles to correspond to each of the 12 objects in the book.
