Repentance makes us clean

Begin by having some water in the pie pan. Sprinkle pepper into the pan as you talk about how sinning can make us feel sad and unclean. Hold up the bar of soap and ask what the purpose of soap is. (Answer: to clean). Explain that repentance is like this bar of soap. When we repent (place tip of the soap into the peppered water), all of our sins are washed away (when the soap goes in the water, the pepper moves AWAY from the soap). D&C 58:42 – Behold, he who has repented of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more. *This is a really neat visual and works best in a small classroom where people can gather around the table to watch. *It can actually be used for other lessons. The water can represent the world and the pepper can represent all the evil in the world. And we need to be examples (represented by the soap).
