Each month, LDS youth around the world study a different doctrinal principle that is coordinated across Young Men, Young Women, and youth Sunday School classes.
The topic for February is the Plan of Salvation. Understanding this plan is fundamental to spiritual learning. Everything we learn about temporal things makes more sense when it’s viewed in the context of the plan of salvation. That helps us discern between that which is eternally significant and that which is not. When we truly understand the plan of salvation, we live with greater purpose. We see trials and adversity as opportunities to grow. We make choices based on their eternal consequences rather than seeking immediate gratification. We are more able to find happiness and joy.
Parents, grandparents, siblings, and leaders can help the youth learn these doctrines if they will study the doctrines themselves and regularly discuss the doctrines with the youth during the month.
Below is a list of the lessons that may be taught during February. Quorum and class presidencies and leaders will use the Spirit to determine what is taught.

The youth are encouraged to Learn the doctrine, Act upon it in some way, then Share what they have learned. Can you think of ways to help the youth Learn, Act, and Share?
