    Tom Christofferson: The Healing Power of Charity

    Tom Christofferson: The Healing Power of Charity

    What if there is power in a Christlike attribute we have heard about our entire lives but have barely scratched the surface of understanding? In his new book, “A Better Heart,” Tom Christofferson writes, “The gift of charity is enormous in conception, its effect and meaning eternal. And yet, it is also small and intimate and personal.” On this week’s episode, we explore charity and how it has the power to give us all better hearts.

    “It’s that opportunity to be able now to simply be an instrument in His hands—to transmit as purely as we possibly can His affection, His knowledge, His intimate awareness of every individual, and then to strengthen them in their faith and then help them have hope.”

    Rebecca Hirschi: To the Finish Line

    In 2012, amidst cancer treatments, Rebecca Hirschi achieved her goal of running the Boston Marathon. But on New Year's Eve 2020, Hirschi approached another finish line as she was nearing the end of her battle with cancer and was on hospice. That night, she was carried up the stairs by her family. Her daughter and husband got her ready for bed, but when it was time for her evening prayers, Rebecca insisted on kneeling. She said she owed everything to God. Three days later, Rebecca returned to that God who gave her life. In this episode, recorded just a few weeks before she passed, Rebecca shares what she learned about the gift of life and living each day to its fullest.

    Eva Timothy: Recognizing Light

    Eva Timothy: Recognizing Light

    Eva Timothy describes growing up in Bulgaria as a place filled with darkness. But even amidst that darkness, she instantly recognized the light of Jesus Christ in art taped to the walls of a makeshift chapel. She felt His light through the words in theBook of Mormon—even through a pamphlet which only contained a handful of chapters in Bulgarian. She was drawn to His light then, and now she hopes to help others find that same light through her photography.

    “We all see Him in our own special way and that’s the beauty of it—that He is so dear to our heart.”

    Lauren Daigle: A Dream Planted by God Himself

    Lauren Daigle: A Dream Planted by God Himself

    Long before she won a Grammy, Lauren Daigle was a teenager homebound by sickness. But during this period of isolation, God gave her hope for a future through a dream of becoming a singer. Years later, the Christian music singer and songwriter has millions of fans but she isn't interested in having followers herself. Instead, she hopes to always direct people to the Savior of the World. Although the road certainly hasn't always been easy, Lauren can now look back and see that God was working in her all along.

    “The closer you draw to Him, He draws near to us and, in that exchange, He really does give us a mirror and let us see who we are. He stands in front of that mirror and we’re able to see ourselves through Him.”

So uplifting!

I’ve been called to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ!! While I worked, I listened to this podcast. I was able to feel the Spirit at work every day. It has helped me prepare to be a sister missionary.
This podcast helps people come into Christ and feel of His love. Thank you so much for all your time and effort! This podcast truly blesses people’s lives!

Love the podcast!

Hi Morgan! I love what you do and hope it continues as it changes people’s lives.

I have one request, could you please use the full name of the church all of the time? You have such a platform here and can really be an example of using the name of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in its true form. We are not LDS, Mormon, or Latter-day Saints.

Thank you, thank you for what you do and the incredible people you bring to the spotlight to share their story so we can grow and learn from each other!

I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed your broadcasts, and during the pandemic, recently once a week has been insufficient, and I have searched the library and not chosen everyone; but a lot, and just finished #19 about Essentialism which is fascinating.

I have continued to listen to those broadcasts that I felt discomfort in, that I didn't like the voice, or how things were presented. At these times, I tried to listen carefully, because I know when I feel resistance there is often a lesson for me. You are my secret weapon to stave off the feelings of isolation during this unusual frame of time - slayer of the distraction, that is a fallout of COVID-19, and another's influence as well.
