I’m going to say this at the beginning before we go in depth about the meaning of Divine Nature: most (all but 1) of the experiences require a time commitment of 2 weeks. I don’t say this to scare you off or to discourage you, I just want you to know what you are getting into, and ask that you keep that in mind when scheduling Personal Progress Experiences.
If you are looking for a few quick experiences to check off, this is not a good value to come to. It is a wonderful value where you learn much about yourself, but it does take time.
Moving on: Divine Nature reminds you that you are a daughter of God and you have the potential and ability to become like Him. That is the heart of the value. It even says that in the little saying, “I have inherited divine qualities, which I will strive to develop.”
As you work in this value you will learn the Lord’s definition of woman and mother. You will learn about several of your divine qualities and how to develop them.
That’s why most of the experiences take to long, because you are practicing developing a habit or quality and that takes time. You could do it one time, but that is not the purpose. Personal Progress is not just a check list of requirements which move you closer to a pretty necklace. The purpose of Personal Progress is to help build your testimony, get you to the temple, and help you become a wonderful person, mother, woman, and wife. The qualities and habits you start to develop and build in Divine Nature are suppose to help you throughout the rest of your life; and they can if you let it.
Value 1 talks about divine qualities and how to develop them.
Value 2 continues to learn about these qualities and asks you to develop one.
Value 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 help you to continue developing your divine qualities. (These qualities include: making home life better, keeping your baptismal covenant [godliness], obedience, pea maker, and some you choose.)
As you work on the values think of an appropriate project you can use to apply what you learn in Divine Nature. Some suggestions in the Personal Progress booklet are learn a skill and use it to make something for your future home, and complete a project which promotes unity in school or at home. The main idea is to help you continue to develop your divine qualities. You can choose to continue developing one from one of the experiences, or you can start with a new one.
Good luck as you start and finish Divine Nature!
