Primary 6 Lesson 27

There is so much faith and obedience shown in this story of Samuel, the boy prophet. I love this reminder of how sometimes its the children who are more obedient than the adults. They are never to young to start to feel and listen to the Holy Ghost.  As always, if you find something else helpful, please share it the comments for everyone to use. Thanks!
