Primary Talk - I am a Child of God and He has a plan for me

This is a Primary talk my son gave in Senior Primary.

In the Family Proclamation it says: “In the premortal realm spirit sons and daughters knew and worshiped God as their eternal father and accepted his plan by which his children could obtain a physical body and gain earthly experience to progress toward perfection and ultimately realize his or her divine destiny as an heir of eternal life.”

This means that before we were born here on earth, we lived with our Heavenly Father who loves each of us. Because of his love for us, he provided a plan to help us grow and progress.

We learned about this wonderful plan at a meeting called the Grand Council in Heaven, before we were born.

We were so excited about it that we all shouted for joy. This is called the Plan of Salvation.

Jesus supported the plan and said he would volunteer to come to earth and be our Savior. He would help us by setting a perfect example and by teaching us. He would suffer for our sins and enable us to repent. He would die for us so that we could live again eternally. We were all very excited by this idea and voted for Heavenly Father’s plan.

Lucifer was there too. He tried to change the plan. He wanted to do things his way by forcing all of us to do what’s right. Satan didn’t want us to have our agency. But Heavenly Father’s plan was to let us choose for ourselves, and He hoped we would choose to follow Jesus.

Lucifer and his followers were removed from heaven and will never be allowed to have bodies. We were sad that they made the wrong choice, but we knew that Heavenly Father’s plan would make us happy and we could live with Him again someday.

I would like to bear my testimony….

I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Thank you for this inspirational talk given by your son in primary. I was invited to share a message about the Council in Heaven tomorrow morning in our primary. I would love to share these remarks because they will resonate with the children there, I know, as they did with me.
