It is the core of the plan of salvation.
Without the infinite Atonement, all mankind would be irretrievably lost.
Temple ordinances and covenants
teach of the redeeming power of the Atonement.President Russell M. Nelson
Because the atonement is central to the plan of happiness, it is also central to Temple work.
Reminders of the Savior and his pivotal role in redeeming all of God’s children
are found at every turn in every Temple.
You can help your children understand how crucial Temple work is
as you teach them that the Lord uses the Temple
as one of His most powerful tools to accomplish His work.
When they serve in the Temple,

If your children understand the sacred and serious nature of covenant making
then the Lord will be able to open their minds and hearts
to growth and happiness they would otherwise miss.
Spiritually preparing children to understand the power of covenants will open their eyes
and prepare them for Temple service.
