    Ridge and Brittany Alkonis: A Long Road Home

    Ridge and Brittany Alkonis: A Long Road Home

    On May 29, 2021, US Navy Lt. Ridge Alkonis took his wife and children to hike a portion of Mount Fuji, a famous mountain where he were stationed in Japan. On their way home, they planned to stop at an ice cream shop Ridge had visited during his time serving in Japan as a missionary years earlier. Ridge was mid-conversation with his 7-year-old daughter when he suddenly lost consciousness and consequently lost control of the car he was driving, resulting in the deaths of two people. Ridge was sentenced to three years in prison. His wife and family were determined to bring him home. This is their story.

    “There’s no guarantee in the scriptures that says, ‘If you are really, really righteous nothing bad is going to happen to you,’ and we don’t talk about that enough.” —Ridge Alkonis

    “I’m still here. …To me, that’s what all in is. It’s not always understanding, the plan of happiness doesn’t mean you’re always happy but I’m still here. I’m still waiting for understanding and I’m still praying for peace that I know one day will come.” —Brittany Alkonis

    Morgan Choi: God Is Everywhere

    Morgan Choi: God Is Everywhere

    Morgan Choi and her husband have lived in four very different countries during their young marriage. They have also experienced very difficult things in lands far from home but what they have found is that God is everywhere and when we seek to feel His love, we will always find it. On this week’s episode, Morgan shares her witness that prayers are heard and answered all around the world.

    “Being curious is such a positive thing, you’re asking questions about someone, you’re wanting to get to know them more and understand them and it can lead to friendship and growth. Being judgmental is just having this fixed idea and it’s negative and it’s not allowing you to grow and to love a person as well.” —Morgan Choi

    Benjamin Bikman: The Heart of the Word of Wisdom

    Benjamin Bikman: The Heart of the Word of Wisdom

    Dr. Benjamin Bikman’s book has 4.8 stars on Amazon and 3,445 reviews. The researcher of metabolic health and BYU professor has developed a loyal fanbase by sharing evidence that shows that many major diseases have a common root—one that is easily fixed by conscious lifestyle changes. He calls his desire to share these things and their impact a crusade and on this week’s episode, he shares why, as a Latter-day Saints, that crusade is fueled by a firm belief in the Word of Wisdom.

    “Maybe the deepest level of the Word of Wisdom is the sentiment of learning to control the power that we have within our bodies because in so doing we show to Heavenly Father our worthiness and our fitness…us being fit for or found worthy of being given greater responsibility and greater power.” —Benjamin Bikman

    Natalie Hill Jensen: The Temple—An Answer To Prayers

    Natalie Hill Jensen was a single adult when she attended her sister’s wedding. There, the sealer who is also an apostle of God told her that heaven would help her as she searched for someone to marry. That heavenly help did come as promised and it eventually included finding her husband but first, it came in the form of an invitation issued in a talk by Sister Wendy Watson Nelson, wife of our prophet, President Russell M. Nelson. On this week’s episode, Natalie shares how accepting that invitation continues to bless her life.

    “I’ve had peace when I should’ve never had peace. I’ve had my personality enhanced to make new friends. I feel like every blessing I have in this new phase of my life has been a direct blessing of weekly temple attendance.” —Natalie Hill Jensen

I love these podcasts

I have listened to nearly all of the All In podcasts, and have found each one inspiring and uplifting. Every interview is different, and yet the threads of light and hope, inspiration and information that are woven through each helps me in my day to day. Thank you Morgan for asking great questions and being an attentive listener.

If you want a pick me up

These podcasts are inspiring. I mostly listen to this podcast on my afternoon walk with the dog. It is at this time that I am able to be quiet and think about my day whether good or bad and contemplate on the failings and wins of the day. When I listen to the advice & testimonies of men and women who have learned & gained insights about things I am yet to gain I feel empowered and grateful for them & the All In team and ready to commence a new day.
