    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.

Great podcast

I’ve just discovered this podcast and it’s great. I’m a convert to the church and struggle with scriptures still and this podcast is helping give me some different insight and perspective on them. Thank you. I look forward to listening to the new show each week! It’s aids my spiritual and scripture study so much! Zack and Krista are so easy to listen to and it’s also great to re listen to them too! Keep it up!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND for anyone who’s asking questions about joining the church, for those who have grown up in the church or even those who are not of the faith. It’s amazing!
