“Heavenly Father Prepared a Way for Me to Return to Him,” Friend, Jan. 2014, 42–43
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!
