The Godhead

The Godhead

“We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost” (Articles of Faith 1:1).

The outlines in this unit will help the young women understand the true nature of the members of the Godhead and the roles of each in fulfilling Heavenly Father’s plan of salvation. This knowledge will help the young women come to better understand their own divine identity and purpose as daughters of God.

Outlines to Choose from This Month

Note to the Teacher

Throughout this unit, you may want to remind the young women that the names of Deity are sacred (see Doctrine and Covenants 63:61). Encourage them to use these names with reverence and respect.


Consider how you can plan activities that connect with what the youth are learning. The Church’s Youth Activities site is available to assist you. Many of the learning activities in these outlines could also serve as effective Mutual activities. Work with class presidencies to select and plan appropriate activities that reinforce what the young women learn on Sunday.
