Faith Value Experience 6

Increase your understanding of the plan of salvation. Resources for study include 1 Corinthians 15:22; Revelation 12:7–9; 2 Nephi 9:1–28; 11:4–7; Doctrine and Covenants 76:50–113;93:33–34; Moses 4:1–4; and Abraham 3:24–27. Draw or obtain a picture that depicts the plan of salvation, including the premortal existence, birth, mortal life, death, judgment, and life after judgment. Using this picture, explain the plan of salvation to your class, your family, or a friend. Discuss how knowledge of the plan affects your actions, helps you understand your identity, and has strengthened your faith.

Remember that the plan of salvation is more than a flowchart; it permeates every aspect of our existence. Look for the patterns clearly laid out in His Eternal plan in your daily life.

For a family home evening lesson or mutual activity, create an illustration of the plan of salvation laid out like a board game, and have members take turns reading scripture passages about each section.

If you're feeling creative, instead of drawing the traditional chart you're familiar with, do a more artistic representation.

Consider this statement as you study and prepare: "The three pillars of eternity, the three events, preeminent and transcendent above all others, are the creation, the fall, and the atonement." (Bruce R. McConkie, The Three Pillars of Eternity)

Contact the missionaries in your ward and see if you could go with them to a teaching appointment about the plan of salvation.
