Heavenly Father Prepared a Way for Me to Return to Him

Learn more about this month’s Primary theme!

Before we came to earth, we all lived in heaven with our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father told us about His plan for us. We chose to follow Heavenly Father’s plan and come to earth.

Heavenly Father loves us and wants us to return to Him. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to show us the way and help us get back to Him.

We follow the path back to Heavenly Father by:
  • being baptized and confirmed,

  • taking the sacrament,

  • making temple covenants,

  • and living with faith.

When we return to Heavenly Father, He will welcome us back with open arms!

Song and Scripture

  • “He Sent His Son” (Children’s Songbook, 34–35)

  • John 3:16

Ideas for Family Talk

This message explains Heavenly Father’s plan in a very simple way. You could have members of the family take turns using the visuals to explain the different parts of the plan. Then you could talk together about how you can help each other stay on the path that leads back to Heavenly Father.

A Path for Me

Make a poster showing your path back to Heavenly Father. Draw a path on paper or poster board. Have an adult help you cut out the little pictures and glue or tape them along the path. Add photos or draw pictures of yourself at important times like baptism.

You will need:

  • a piece of paper or poster board

  • scissors

  • glue or tape

  • crayons, markers, or pencils

This is me!

Premortal life

Keep the commandments

My baptism day

Receive the gift of the Holy Ghost

I’ll follow Jesus Christ

Put on the whole armor of God

I’ll go inside the temple someday

My future family

Stand for the right

I return back to Heavenly Father!
