Ch. 5: The Creation

from Gospel Principles:

In our premortal life we were joyful when Heavenly Father told us about His plan for us to become more like Him. We were eager for new experiences. As previously mention we needed to leave His presence and receive mortal bodies to do so. Hence, we needed another place to live where we can prepare to become like Him. Our new home was called earth. Under the direction of Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ created this world and everything in it ... light, darkness, land, water, plants, animals, and mankind ... having life being able to reproduce.

God's creations show His love. "Think of the sun, which gives us warmth and light. Think of the rain, which makes plants grow and makes the world feel clean and fresh. Think of how good it is to hear a bird singing or a friend laughing. Think of how wonderful our bodies are--how we can work and play and rest. When we consider all of these creations, we begin to understand what wise, powerful, and loving beings Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father are. They have shown great love for us by providing for all of our needs." (pg 24-25). The Lord said, "Yea, all things which come of the earth, and the season thereof, are made for the benefit and the use of man, both to please the eye and to gladden the heart; yea, for food and for raiment, for taste and for smell, to strengthen the body and to enliven the soul" (D&C 59:18-19).
