When you are in the spirit world, everything there will appear as natural as things now do. Spirits will be familiar with spirits in the spirit world—will converse, behold, and exercise every variety … Continue reading →
My FAVORITE gospel topic to study is the Plan of Salvation, because it encompasses EVERY other element of the gospel and makes everything so clear. And there’s always something new to learn from it, no matter how young or old!
I’m hoping to start creating more handouts to correspond with Come Follow Me lessons, and so to start out with I have a batch for The Plan of Salvation—specifically for the lesson “What is the purpose of life?” because that’s the topic I’m teaching later this month—but they would likely prove useful in other lessons as well.
First is a basic illustration of God’s plan of happiness, including the premortal life, mortal life (with the necessity of temple ordinances and the atonement), the spirit world, resurrection, judgment, and the three kingdoms (including the three degrees within the Celestial kingdom). Along the bottom is Moses 1:39.
Next, I have an acrostic poem which offers a different perspective on the purpose of life, with each letter outlining something we need to obtain or achieve in order to reach our ultimate purpose.
I also have this quote from Elder Gary E. Stevenson’s talk Your Four Minutes, likening the plan of salvation to a race, with the prize being Eternal Life.
And finally an excellent quote from Uchtdorf’s Your Happily Ever After talk to young women.
All the files can be downloaded at this link. I have JPG image files, and PDF files with four to a page.
At this point I still don’t know which handouts I’ll even be using, so I guess I’ll have to rely on the Spirit!
In case regular visitors of this website haven’t noticed, I absolutely love fairy tales being used as metaphors for the gospel. Something that certainly aided in this love for fairy tales is that one of my very first experiences in Young Women’s was w…
It’s the Activity That Kills You but Won’t Die: the Flight 227 airplane crash activity. The airplane crash activity isn’t a good activity, and know that you are advised not to perform it. I thought I had squelched it years ago with my forum posts repeating the First Presidency letter warning members not to wear […]
I think the picture says it all! Four colors of Play Doh helped turn the standard Plan of Salvation lesson into a multi-media experience. The class I was teaching at the time was 10 years old, so they already knew the lesson. We reviewed the basics (and I gave them each one of Courtney Aitken’s […]
