A few years ago I attended a management training that covered helping employees through change. The focus was teaching them how to prepare for the change and anticipate their new work environment. During the training we were introduced to the Chinese word for Crisis. The translation the word is actually Danger Opportunity. I hope to bring that idea into the class, that by planning for changes or tests in school, or other deadlines they may come across in their life. Crisis comes from procrastination- I unfortunately am the Queen of Procrastination and speak from experience. When I procrastinate I find my self in a panic to accomplish the task and end up loosing more than sleep to meet a deadline. I have always been like that, almost unable to compile two thoughts together without the pressure. The Doctrine and Covenants 109:8 scripture outlines how we can avoid the crisis moment, if we follow each of those items, we will be prepared for each new Dangerous Opportunity life throws our way.

I have been reading the Great and Terrible series by Chris Stewart, if you have not read them I highly suggest you do.
As I was reading through lesson 41, I remembered a phrase from either book one or book two, one of Satan's minions is talking to one of Christ's followers, trying to bring him to the dark side. Balam said, " You can't trust him, he really isn't going to follow through on what he says he will do." He was implying that Christ was not going to "pay" for our sins.
I was reminded how much faith we all had to have to follow The Plan of Happiness. I found myself pondering this thought for a few days and felt that I needed to add that thought to this handout.
I will never be able to return the payment he made for my sins, I can only hope that I can always be grateful and appreciative of his sacrifice.
