    Sections 121-123 - Prison-Temple

    Sections 121-123 - Prison-Temple

    Elder Holland (and others) have called Liberty Jail a "prison-temple" for Joseph Smith and others that were with him. For over four months they suffered; but they also changed and became something new. In this episode we take a look at our own prison-temple experiences, figure out how to endure them, and identify what we are supposed to learn from them.

    Sections 115-120 - Arise

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints combines both the teachings, example, ministry, and leadership of a divine being with everyday, imperfect, mistake-laden, and very mortal beings. Both the God and the saint make up the Church. In this episode we falling and arising and reframe our own relationship with our mortality so we can more fully participate in the Lord's plan for our growth.

    Sections 111-114 - Follies

    Sections 111-114 - Follies

    It might an obvious observation, but our lives' stresses and strains are often caused, not by world-ending sins, but by small but pervasive mistakes. Even the prophet Joseph Smith was called out for his "follies". In this episode we wrestle with the anatomy of our own "follies" in pursuit of better self-understanding and, possibly, a future of fewer mistakes.

    Section 109-110 - Accept

    We all want our prayers to be "accepted" just like those early Saints who joined with the prophet in prayer in and for the Kirtland Temple. We want to be heard and to hear God ourselves. In this episode we take a unique look at the dedicatory prayer in search of examples of prayer. Study along and see what ideas come to you to help you as you pray to God.

    Sections 106-108 - Special

    What is "special" about our general Church priesthood leaders? In this episode we study from Section 107 just what prophets, apostles, seventies, and other are and, by implication (or by statement), what they are not. As we better understand the calling of our leaders we can better understand our responsibility to "uphold" them with our confidence and faith.

    Sections 102-105 - Victory

    Sections 102-105 - Victory

    We titled this episode (as we do each one) with a word from the scripture block, and this one is ironic because, even though the Lord promises victory (DC 103:36) these sections are all about failure. We know what that feels like: to feel assured of a certain outcome, maybe even a prophesied or prompted one, only to have it not occur. In this study we dive into failure and find out just why it's allowed to happen and why it maybe isn't as prominent as we think.

Insightful

I just listened to your episode “John 1-See” and your questions at the end are so perfect 🙌🏻 THANK YOU! I am approaching the world with new eternal eyes!

So close....

I just discovered your podcast; it is truly edifying to hear your thoughts, interpretations, and insights.

... So, why did I rate you at only 3/5 stars??

Seriously, you just went from describing the precise moment that the single most intelligent, creative, omniscient, loving, perfect, conseqiential, REAL Being anywhere and of all time; made the most important decision ever made—the single event that marked and caused the very meridian of time—(complete with an insight into the very fabric of His priorities and the value that we hold in His heart and mind—), the decision was the one with which He simultaneously elevated every being that ever existed/exists/will exist beyond his/her wildest imaginings, liberating each and everyone from the very bonds of death—in the Garden of Gethsemane.

That moment and cause of the very meridian of time itself, you then proceeded to undermine utterly with the triteness of the comparison to a segment of a SciFi plotline (quality and impressiveness of scripting, acting, cinematography, etc notwithstanding).

Right up to that moment, though, you were working in the zone with the Holy Spirit himself...

Wow!

I just stumbled across this podcast today and listened to Alma 31-32. It brought me so much joy and a perspective I hadn’t thought of before. This will change the way I teach my children and interact with people around me. Can’t wait to catch up on the other chapters as I work through the Book of Mormon!
