Eighteen of the most exciting and challenging months of my life were spent on an LDS mission in California. In some form or another, I think about those months almost every day. Just this morning I was showing my baby boy a picture of the day I entered the MTC, and I thought about how sweet and incredible (and heartaching-not a word, I know) it will be to see a name tag on that blonde boy in 18 years.
Among a serious love for sopes and enchiladas verdes and semi-fluency in Spanglish, I brought this little Plan of Salvation set home with me. We mostly used it in Family Home Evenings and dinner appointments with members-my original copy was in Spanish. But whether we were using this set or our less playful set or teaching without any visuals on a doorstep or sidewalk, I really grew to love teaching this plan. I found over and over and over again that understanding God’s plan brings profound peace. It is the promise that long-term, everything will be okay if we continue to follow Him-the promise that our happiness matters immensely to our Heavenly Father.
I’ve used this set for a YW activity (only one of the several pieces is pictured above). The girls colored and cut out their copies, then we had them laminated. We talked about the Plan of Salvation as they colored and read some scriptures from Personal Progress for Faith #6. It’s a perfect fit!
This could also be a fun thing to send to a missionary you have or to create with kiddos for Family Home Evening. It fits with February’s Primary theme: Heavenly Father has a plan for His children.
So many uses!
You can find the PDF ready-to-print right here. As always, feel free to share this with family and friends. Please just direct them to the blog instead of the actual PDF link. Thanks so much!
I tried to open the pdf and the earth life was missing from the Plan of Salvation.
Hi Kylie! Thanks for stopping by. The Earth Life piece is on the third page, right underneath the Spirit World. If it’s still not working for you, please let us know and we’ll get something worked out. Thanks again!
When I printed it, part of each page did not fit on my cardstock (the images were cut off)..
Hi Judy! Thanks for stopping by. If images are being cut off, it probably has something to do with printer capability and/or printer settings. I’m so not a computer or printer whiz, so I’d probably just suggest going to trusty old Google and seeing what you can figure out about your printer. If that still doesn’t work, let us know and we’ll see what we can figure out on our end. Thanks so much!

I so want this free download of the plan of salvation but when I click on the link it goes to the page but there are no graphics. Can you help me?
Hi Beth! Can you try again? I’ve tried on a few computers and the link has worked for me. Please let us know if it still doesn’t work for you and we’ll figure something out. Thanks!
