God's Plan: Book 1 Of The True Doctrine Series

By Andrea Erickson Lindsey
Regular price $30.00

"One of the most important things we can do as parents and leaders as we read and search the scriptures is to attend carefully and focus seriously on the points of doctrine taught by apostles and prophets. The author of this book quoted President Boyd K. Packer’s marvelous statement about how the teaching of doctrine changes lives and builds faith and testimony like nothing else can. That being true, it is crucial that parents or caretakers utilize every occasion to help children understand the doctrine of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Familiarity with doctrine can give them a proper perspective on life; fortify them against the wiles and temptations of the devil; help them find comfort in difficult times; bring the Holy Spirit into their daily walk and talk; and, come to know their Lord and Savior in ways that nothing else can.

Any effort, therefore, to assist children in understanding the doctrine found in holy scripture and the teachings of latter-day apostles and prophets can be fundamental and foundational for our little ones. In that spirit, I applaud the effort of Andrea Erickson Lindsey to help parents help children. Having worked successfully as a seminary teacher within the Church Educational System, she is able to present the doctrine of the Church in a clear and understandable manner. Andrea is a former student of mine, and so I know something of her earnest desire, patience, and perseverance in pushing forward this project. It is my hope that the lessons and examples provided within this book will assist parents and loved ones to bring [the children] up in the nurture and admonition "to the end Lord” (Ephesians 6:4; see also Enos 1:1)."

Simple and direct

I really enjoyed the flow of this book. It simplified the doctrine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and really got down to the basics. The important foundations. And made it easy to talk about those things with children. The illustrations and music are also very well done and add to the value of this book.

God’s Plan - Beautiful & Simple Teaching Tool

I love this book! The combination of clear explanations of doctrine along with fun hands-on activities, artwork beautifully illustrating the principles being taught, and Shawna Edwards inspired music, wraps everything together into a wonderful multi-sensory learning experience.

God's Plan Book 1

I was so excited to get this book. It is so well made!!!! I love the hard cover and the pictures are fantastic. I had to look at all of them before I started reading. The author has done an awesome job with this book. You can tell that she has spent a lot of time and energy and care in the writing. I know that this will make it so much easier to teach about these very important principles. I also love the activities that go along with every chapter. I've already purchased a second copy to give a a gift.
