At the beginning of the meeting, repeat together the Young Women Theme or the Aaronic Priesthood Quorum Theme. Then lead a discussion about the work of salvation and exaltation using one or more of the questions below or questions of your own (see General Handbook, 10.2, 11.2, ChurchofJesusChrist.org). Plan ways to act on what you discuss.
Live the gospel. What topics has the bishopric discussed in our ward youth council meetings? What can we do as a class or quorum based on those discussions?
Care for those in need. How can we reach out to people in Christlike ways when we see a need and don’t know what to say?
Invite all to receive the gospel. What have we found in the gospel of Jesus Christ that brings us joy? How can we share that joy with others?
Unite families for eternity. What are we doing to find names of our ancestors who need temple ordinances? What can we do to help others find the names of their ancestors?
At the end of the lesson, as appropriate, do the following:
Testify of the principles taught.
Remind quorum or class members about the plans and invitations made during the meeting.
Our Heavenly Father has provided a plan that enables us to receive eternal blessings and become like Him. He wants all of His children to know about that plan, so He has revealed it to prophets throughout the ages. As quorum or class members studied Doctrine and Covenants 76 this week, they learned what God revealed about His plan to Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon, including the Savior’s central role in the plan and the glory we can receive in the life to come. If we are faithful, we can be perfected through Jesus Christ’s Atonement, receive a fulness of joy, and live with God forever.
How has knowing about Heavenly Father’s plan influenced your perspective on life? How can you help your quorum or class understand what a blessing it is to know about the plan of salvation? To prepare to teach, you could read “Plan of Salvation” in True to the Faith (, 115–17) or Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf’s message “Your Great Adventure” (Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2019, 86–90).e plan of salvation gives direction and purpose to our lives.
One way to begin a discussion with your quorum or class about the plan of salvation is to invite someone to write on the board the following headings, along with the verses from Doctrine and Covenants 76: Premortal Life (verses 22–27), Mortal Life (verses 40–43), and Life after Death (verses 50–53, 59–62). Give quorum or class members a few minutes to review these verses to find the Savior’s role in fulfilling Heavenly Father’s plan. Ask them to write under each heading what they find. The activities below can help them better understand how Heavenly Father’s plan blesses their lives.

Assign each young woman one or more of the scripture passages in this outline
. Ask her to read her passage to determine what part of the plan of salvation the passage refers to. Invite her to share what she learns from her passage.
How does knowing about the plan affect the way we see ourselves, others, and the world around us?
1 Corinthians 15:20–22 (All people will die and be made alive again through Jesus Christ)
Revelation 20:12–13 (All people will be resurrected and stand before God to be judged)
2 Nephi 2:22–25 (The Fall of Adam brought about mortality)
Alma 40:11–14, 21–23 (Spirits go to paradise or outer darkness until the Resurrection)
Doctrine and Covenants 76:50–70 (Description of those who inherit the celestial kingdom)
Abraham 3:22–25 (We lived with God in the premortal life and came to earth to prove ourselves)
We Have Answers!
The section titled “We Have Answers!” in President Dieter F. Uchtdorf’s message “O How Great the Plan of Our God!” (Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2016, 19–22)
Divide the young women into 3 groups. Have each group pick one question
:Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where do we go after we leave this life?
Invite the class members to find statements in President Uchtdorf’s message that help answer these questions. They could write their answers on the board under the appropriate question.
Why are the answers to these questions important in our lives?
Place the pictures on the chalk board as you discuss them briefly.
Ask the youth to read “Plan of Salvation” in True to the Faith (pages 115–17)
, including the scriptures cited, and find something they didn’t already know. Invite them to share what they learn, and discuss why Heavenly Father wants us to continue to learn.
Ask the young women to share what they learned today. Do they understand the plan of salvation better? What feelings or impressions do they have? Do they have any additional questions? Would it be helpful to spend more time on this doctrine?
Encourage quorum or class members to ponder and record what they will do to act on the impressions they received today. How does today’s lesson relate to personal goals they have made? If they would like, quorum or class members could share their ideas.
