    Richard Turley: The Cautionary Tales of Church History and the Role Models Worth Emulating

    Richard Turley: The Cautionary Tales of Church History and the Role Models Worth Emulating

    Richard Turley has spent his career facing history head-on because he believes the more we know, the better we can answer questions. When it comes to Church history, there are an abundance of examples worth emulating, but there are also cautionary tales we can learn from. On this week’s episode, Turley looks back on his takeaways from writing books about two dark moments in Church history: the Mark Hofmann trial and the Mountain Meadows Massacre. He then contrasts that to the uplifting lessons he learned from writing a biography about the exemplary life of President Dallin H. Oaks.

    “We tend to ignore the lessons we can learn from the past and we don’t look very far into the future.”

    Fiona and Terryl Givens: The Restoration of All Things

    Fiona and Terryl Givens: The Restoration of All Things

    For the last decade, Fiona and Terryl Givens have brought to light wonderful and expansive doctrines in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ by drawing upon literature and other faith traditions. Their work helps Latter-day Saints appreciate the beauty of what we believe. On this week’s episode, we talk with these scholars about many of their books, how those books are influenced by their life experiences, and how their studies have brought us greater appreciation for our faith tradition and the faith traditions of others.

    “If something harrows the mind and constricts the heart, that I don’t think is of God—that is not of the Spirit. But if something—an idea, a thought, a song, a book—enlarges your mind and awakens your heart to joy then we can know that that is true.”

    Rio Grange: Honoring a Parent through Complexity

    Rio Grange: Honoring a Parent through Complexity

    How do we honor parents who make choices we don’t understand? On this week's All In episode, Rio Grange discusses her relationship with her father, who struggled with mental health and other difficult issues in his life. Rio wrote, “Some things are not meant to make sense, or seem fair, or reach resolution in this life—and that can be hard to sit with. But these experiences bring learning and growth, while ‘earthside’ that otherwise would not have been possible. The complexities in between and all throughout will be taken care of ‘heavenside.’” Rio shares what our Heavenly Father's plan is teaching her about navigating complexities in family relationships.

    “It’s his story. It’s between him and the Savior and I kept trying to put my dad between myself and my Savior as I tried to heal. …But I had to learn that the healing I needed was between myself and my Savior.”

    John Beck: Centered in Christ

    John Beck: Centered in Christ

    For four years, John Beck lined up under center at BYU as quarterback of the football team. He is likely best remembered for a winning play in a rivalry game against Utah that is often referred to as “The Answered Prayer,” but in the years since his collegiate career, Beck has learned a lot about seemingly unanswered prayers and perceived failure. On this week’s episode, Beck discusses the refiner’s fire as well as the delicate balance between putting in the work to achieve success while allowing space for recovery and rehabilitation—both mentally and physically. He believes this begins with being centered in Jesus Christ.

    "To achieve the most difficult things, failure and fear is something you have to look straight in the face and be okay with."

    Marcus Martins: Focused on the Future, Learning from the Past

    Marcus Martins: Focused on the Future, Learning from the Past

    Marcus Martins never planned to serve a mission, to be sealed in the temple, or to serve as a bishop. These things would require him to receive the priesthood, and there was a restriction in place that precluded him from doing so. But Martins’s life changed forever on June 8, 1978, when The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced a revelation extending the priesthood to all worthy male members ages 12 and older. Since that day, Martins has served not only as a missionary, but as a bishop, a temple officiator, a Book of Mormon translator, and a mission president. On this week's episode, Martins explains how he developed a testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ even before 1978 and why he has never looked back in the nearly 50 years since he joined the Church.

    “I’m very optimistic about the future and the fact that because of the testimony of Jesus Christ, we will come eventually to a point, even before the millennium, in which this will be for most people a thing of the past because, since we are always receiving new converts, we will always have to be revisiting these lessons but it won’t hurt as much."

    Sarah Jane Weaver: Amplifying a Prophet’s Voice

    Sarah Jane Weaver: Amplifying a Prophet’s Voice

    After 25 years of documenting the ministry of prophets, apostles, and general officers of the Church, Sarah Jane Weaver reflects on the lessons she has learned not only from Church leaders, but from members of the Church throughout the world. On this week’s episode, Weaver, the editor of Church News, looks back on a career that has taken her places she never dreamed of, both literally and figuratively.

    “I always say that I look at the church through the Church News window. …I’m certainly not doing anything different than any other member of the Church is, I just have a unique view into what our Church leaders do, how they act, how they minister, what they teach. And that view from the Church News window is profound and it’s beautiful.”
