April 2016 General Conference: Mary R. Durham, "A Child's Guiding Gift"

Sister Durham spoke of 3 Nephi 26, wherein the Savior taught of the spiritual capacity of children:
He did loose their tongues, and they did speak unto their fathers great and marvelous things, even greater than he had revealed unto the people. …
 … They both saw and heard these children; yea, even babes did open their mouths and utter marvelous things.
How do we as parents increase the spiritual capacity of our little ones? How do we teach them to kick off worldly influences and trust the Spirit when we are not with them and they are alone in the deep waters of their lives?
  • Bring to our children’s attention when they are hearing and feeling the Spirit.
  • Prepare our homes and our children to feel the still, small voice.
  • Help our children understand how the Spirit speaks to them.
Joseph Smith taught, “If He comes to a little child, He will adapt himself to the language and capacity of a little child.”
