    T.C. Christensen: Miraculous True Stories Made For Film

    T.C. Christensen has made some of the most beloved Latter-day Saint films in recent years including “17 Miracles” and “The Fighting Preacher.” His new film, “Escape From Germany” tells the story of a missionary who was tasked with moving 85 missionaries to safety in adjacent countries as Hitler’s army was rapidly closing borders in August of 1939. On this week’s episode, T.C. shares with us how he approaches telling the miraculous stories of real people.

    Ardeth Kapp: Tried and True Marriage Advice

    Ardeth Kapp: Tried and True Marriage Advice

    All In joins our community remembering the service filled life of Ardeth Kapp. Please enjoy this episode originally aired March 9, 2022.

    Former Young Women General President Ardeth Kapp and her husband Heber went through a lot during their 67 years of marriage before Heber passed away in May 2017. They worked together as president and matron of the Cardston Alberta Temple, were mission leaders of the Canada Vancouver Mission, and dedicated their lives to serving God in every calling in between. The Kapps also faced plenty of ups and downs in their marriage as they struggled with infertility and were never able to have children. In this episode, we speak with Ardeth about true partnership in marriage and learn from her example of how to choose faith and grace through thick and thin.

    “We need to be able to reinforce that statement of love and not just assume, ‘We’re getting along okay, we don’t have to repeat it.’ Yes we do have to repeat it!” —Ardeth Kapp

    Savannah Wooden: The Physical Healing Power of God

    Savannah Wooden: The Physical Healing Power of God

    Savannah Wooden was in high school when, after years of struggling with seizures, she made the difficult decision to have brain surgery that, if successful, would cure her seizures. The surgery was, by that measure, very successful, but in the years since, Savannah has struggled with the byproducts of the surgery. Even then, she can see that the power of the priesthood invited healing into her life that otherwise may not have been possible.

    Kyle S. McKay: A Witness of a Living Christ and an Ongoing Restoration

    Kyle S. McKay: A Witness of a Living Christ and an Ongoing Restoration

    If the walls of the Kirtland Temple could speak, they would tell you what they saw that day—April 3, 1836—when the Living Christ appeared to the Prophet Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery. Still, the temple stands as a witness of the reality of the Resurrection that we celebrate at Easter. Perhaps it is only fitting that the Kirtland Temple reopened under the Church’s ownership this week. On this week’s episode, Elder Kyle S. McKay shares how history and an understanding of our heritage strengthens our own faith.

Great stories

Thank you so much Morgan for bringing such inspiring stories to the podcast world. I enjoy the variety in your shows. Very uplifting podcast, and I can always feel the spirit touch my heart each episode.

Thank you 🙏🙏🙏

I’ve been traveling a lot for work lately, and just binge-listened to many of your episodes. Ardie Kapp (family friend), Sage Williams (friend), John Beck, Manti Teo, Danny Ainge, Kirby Heybourne, Melissa Inoyue (served missions together) and Britain Coveys (friend). You have a tremendous talent at asking really great questions and allowing us as listeners to really feel apart of such great conversation. It has been so inspiring to me and has strengthened my testimony and helped me personally feel Gods love more for me and for all these wonderful people. As someone who has endured hardship (as everyone has), I feel more strengthened and motivated to keep my head up and faithful while being kind and considerate of others along the way. Your podcast is really a gift you are providing us. Thank you so much 🙏🙏🙏🙏
