After creating the world, Heavenly Father created Adam and Eve. He put them in the Garden of Eden. He told them to have a family. He also told them not to eat the fruit on a special tree. Satan tricked Adam and Eve. They ate the fruit and had to leave the Garden of Eden. But this was all part of God’s plan. Now Adam and Eve were able to have children! They taught their family about the gospel. They trusted God even when they had to do things that were hard or scary. We are so grateful for how faithful and brave Adam and Eve were.
