The Plan of Salvation

Have you ever had an experience when you failed to plan something and it turned out to be a disaster! The Lord created a plan, from the beginning, "The Plan of Salvation," that detailed how we would progress from the pre-mortal life, to eternal salvation and exaltation with God after our life here on earth. It is vitally important that our children understand that God does have a plan for us! And if we follow His plan, we will be able to be like Him and receive a fulness of joy! This week's lesson explains the "Plan of Salvation" . We hope this will lead to a faith building moments in your homes with your little ones!

Invite each child to imagine it’s going to be their birthday soon and it’s time to make a plan! Tell each child to think of 5 things that they would like to do at their imaginary birthday party and to write or draw a picture of each idea on their paper.

After children have had time to think of things they would like to plan, invite children to share their plans with the group.

After this activity, ask the following questions:

1) Why is it important to make a plan for something before it happens? (To make sure we don’t forget anything, it lets everyone know what’s going to happen, to make sure we are prepared, etc.)

2) Can you think of other things that people make plans for? (A vacation, a class or lesson, building a house, etc.)

3) Do you think Heavenly Father makes plans? (Discuss.)

4) What do you think Heavenly Father might want to make a plan for? (Discuss.)
