    Sections 20-22 - Organized

    Sections 20-22 - Organized

    The Lord organizes chaos. He did it at the creation of the world. He did it during His mortal ministry in organizing a Church. He did it in the early 1800's when He restored His Church to the earth. And He can do it this year for each of us after the chaos that was 2020. In this episode we study truths about the organization of the Restored Church that can guide our own efforts to seek divine help in bringing more order to our lives. The question is, "What would the Lord have me organize or establish in my life?"

    Sections 18-19 - Repent

    Sections 18-19 - Repent

    We've all heard more than a few talks, lessons, and sermons on repentance. We know it's important, and we know that we should do it. But sometimes we don't actually know what it is and, more importantly, how to do it. In this episode we study the Lord's directions to early Church members and wrestle them some practical principles that we can actually do something with. The question this week for us as we study can be, "What is the Lord wants me to change?"

    Sections 14-17 - Witness

    Sections 14-17 - Witness

    The Lord called many in the early Restored Church to obtain and share a "witness" of the unfolding work. Today, we are likewise called to witness; however, our testimonies can sometimes be overlaid and overcomplicated with tradition, culture, trite phrases, or misunderstandings. In this episode we study Doctrine & Covenants 14-17 in search of clear truths about witnessing as we invite you to ponder your own witness and where the Lord would have you share it.

    Sections 12-13 / JSH 1:66-75 - Fellow

    Sections 12-13 / JSH 1:66-75 - Fellow

    To his "fellow servants" Joseph and Oliver the angel John, acting under direction from the Lord, gave power to further the work of the Lord. Similarly today, the Lord gives His "fellow servants"--both women and men--power to accomplish the work He calls them to do. In our study this week we ask the question: what is the power the Lord has given me, and what does He expect me to do with it. In this episode we get a bit personal and focus on the truths we would help our own young daughter understand as she seeks for her own answers to these important questions.

    Sections 10-11 - Desire

    Sections 10-11 - Desire

    "What do I want?" This seemingly simple question drives our study this week. Joseph, Martin, Oliver, Hyrum, and many others who wanted to be a part of the unfolding restoration were directly quickly to examine their hearts--their wants and desires--and to align them with the Lord's. We know from personal experience that this process is not easy. In this episode we dive into the study and the work of changing our own hearts.

    Sections 6-9 - Revelation

    Sections 6-9 - Revelation

    "What is the Lord revealing to me?" That's the question at the center of our study this week. There is a long prophetic priority placed on each of us developing our ability to receive and recognize what the Lord wants us to know, feel, do, and become. In this episode we share some of those tools and how they work, practically, in our daily life.
