Sharing Time Poster: I Will Follow God’s Plan for Me


“For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man” (Moses 1:39).

I Will Follow God’s Plan for Me

Before we were born, we lived in heaven with our heavenly parents. Heavenly Father wanted us to become more like Him, so He presented a plan. We learned that a new home called earth would be created for us where we could receive a physical body, be tested, and learn to choose the right and do good. Jesus Christ said He would be our Savior so we could repent of our sins and return to our heavenly home. If we placed our faith in Jesus Christ, obeyed His commandments, and followed His example, we would be happy. We joyfully chose to follow Heavenly Father’s plan of happiness.

Reading the themes and scriptures on this year’s poster and setting and working on a goal each month will help you learn more about Heavenly Father’s plan of happiness and how to follow it.

Instructions

  1. 1.

    Turn the page, open the staples, remove the poster, and reclose the staples.

  2. 2.

    Cut out the pictures/goals and the “My Plans to Follow THE PLAN” pocket from the right side of the poster. Place the pictures/goals in an envelope. Cut slits along the two broken lines on the pocket. Fold the tabs to the back of the pocket along the solid lines. Leaving the top open, glue the side and bottom tabs of the pocket to the left side of the poster where indicated. Hang up the poster.

  3. 3.

    At the beginning of each month, read the theme and scripture listed for that month. Then find the appropriate picture/goal. Cut off the goal strip. Glue the picture in place on the poster. Now decide what you will do that month to follow God’s plan, and write your goal on the strip. For example, the theme for February is “I am a child of God.” For your goal you may decide to write, “In February, I will remember that Heavenly Father loves me and I will pray to Him morning and night.” Place the ends of the strip into the slits on the “My Plans to Follow THE PLAN” pocket; then do what you have written. When you are ready to place your goal for the next month on the pocket, remove the previous month’s goal and place it inside the pocket. At the end of the year, the pocket will be filled with the goals you have accomplished while trying to follow Heavenly Father’s plan for you.

Additional copies of the poster (item no. 25959) are available from Church distribution centers.
