Instructions for Discussion

Below are suggested questions you can ask students to reflect on to help with your discussion. You may be inspired to ask different questions based on the needs of your group.

  • Elder Villar says that when we make covenants, "We declare our intention to live, behave, and honor...sacred promises and to act accordingly. In return, Heavenly Father promises incredible blessings to us." What blessings have you received because you have made covenants with Heavenly Father?
  • Elder Villar says that revelation is how Heavenly Father communicates with His children. While we can pray for this inspiration, we must also work to do our part, like Nephi. What have you done to work hard for your education? What have you sacrificed? Have you received revelation at times that has helped direct your path? Can someone share what they have learned from this?
