Lesson One – What is Health?

Health is being free of illness and disease and more, it is being:
• full of energy
• able to think clearly
• able to learn easily and well
• having endurance – being able to do things for a long time
• having flexibility – being able to move every part of your body easily
• having strength
• having bright eyes and clear vision
• having shiny hair
• having clear nails with no ribs, or small white areas, and not brittle or easily broken
• seldom if ever being sick
• happy, cheerful and feeling GOOD!

What can you add to this definition?

Lesson Two – How Do We Become Healthy?

In Doctrine and Covenants 130:20-21 Jesus tell us:
“There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before
the foundation of this world, upon which all blessings
are predicated –
“And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by
obedience to that law upon which it is predicated.”

This simply means that Heavenly Father’s laws will NOT be changed. They are set. If we want any blessing, we must obey the law
that is set for that blessing.

What are these laws? Name some that you think you know.
We will start you off: Look in Matthew 5:12. Here you will find the BEATITUDES. It is a good idea for you to learn and memorize the Beatitudes. In the Beatitudes we are told …
if we are merciful, we will obtain mercy;
if we hunger and thirst after righteousness, we will be filled.
Read some of the others.
There is a cause and an effect; an action and a consequence.
Simply put: if we want good consequences, in this case HEALTH, we will obey Heavenly Father’s Laws of Health!
Our study of His Laws begins in the next lesson.
