    J. David Pulsipher: Making Peace with Book of Mormon Violence

    J. David Pulsipher: Making Peace with Book of Mormon Violence

    Millions around the world have found peace within the pages of the Book of Mormon; beautiful teachings about the Prince of Peace and His atoning sacrifice calm our fears and instill hope. But the Book of Mormon also covers a great deal of contention and violence. Why were such graphic events included and what are we supposed to learn from all the accounts of war and conflict? On this week’s episode, we talk with J. David Pulsipher, PhD, who has spent the last decade exploring the answer to this question.

    Brett and Kate McKay: Loving the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the Second Half of Life

    Brett and Kate McKay: Loving the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the Second Half of Life

    Various philosophers have often mused that there are two halves of our lives. What separates them is the period of time when we transition from a belief system to a humble inner knowing. This week’s guests, Brett and Kate McKay, are not strangers to the evolution of faith and say they have experienced significant moments of decision within their own faith. But they have also found that it is very possible to transition from the first half of life to the second with your faith intact. They believe faith shouldn’t be boring; instead, it’s very possible to stay passionate about the gospel after leaving young adulthood.

    “I think that there should be a certain romance and enchantment that happens with the gospel.”

    Nate and Dayna Checketts: Forever Forward

    Nate and Dayna Checketts: Forever Forward

    In 2002, President James E. Faust gave a talk during the priesthood session of general conference. He said, “Your future may not hold fame or fortune, but it can be something far more lasting and fulfilling. Remember that what we do in life echoes in eternity.” Twelve years later in 2014, Nate Checketts co-founded Rhone Apparel, an activewear company for men. He hoped that positive messages on men’s apparel could help shape the future of the little men he and his wife, Dayna, are raising. So he began adding messages on the inside of his company’s clothes, including this quote by President Faust. On today’s episode, we talk with Nate and Dayna about why they are passionate about creating a brand that teaches correct principles.

    "It is emotionally exhausting to try and decide whether or not you are going to serve in the church, whether or not you're going to read your scriptures that night, whether or not you're going to say a prayer. ...It is so much easier to just be fully committed to the Lord."

    Andrea Hales: Gathering Tribes

    Andrea Hales: Gathering Tribes

    Andrea Hales felt inadequate to the task but she couldn’t deny the prompting she was feeling to start a podcast. The podcast would tell the stories of Native American Latter-day Saints and provide a platform to share their testimonies as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Hales knew she didn’t grow up close to her Navajo side of the family but she felt her heart turning to her fathers and, as a result, a podcast called “Tribe of Testimonies” was born. 

    "It's not me, it's definitely the Lord."

    Richie T. Steadman: Never All Out

    Richie T. Steadman: Never All Out

    Richie T. Steadman once found himself in a situation he never could’ve imagined: excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was an unexpected note in the life of someone who had otherwise been a devoted member of the Church his entire life. But even while he worked toward being rebaptized, Steadman never missed a Sunday of church. In the years since, he has devoted much of his personal time and resources to giving voice to fellow Latter-day Saints on his podcast, The Cultural Hall.

    “The only thing I can ever be perfect in is never giving up.”

    Davis and Asialene Smith: On a Mission to ‘Do Good’

My favorite podcast

This is currently my favorite podcast. The hosts are always on point without any awkward silent moments. The guests are always interesting. But the best part is the uplifting, soul rejuvenating aspect of it.

Literally the only podcast I listen to

I’m a laggard when it comes to podcasts but the Jared halverson episode was recommended to me and now I’ve listened to many many many. Not quite all (yet!) I recommend this podcast to many! I’ve tried other podcasts since but I just don’t like any others, so this continues to be the only podcast I listen to 😂
I really love the all in podcast. The Jared Halvwrson podcast still is my favorite- I’ve listed to it 6 or more times over the last year.

Update to: Uplifting and leaves me feeling good

Update: this a podcast is now focusing regularly on businessmen and women. Many who run companies that have never made any profit and subsist merely on their latest round of debt fundraising. I don’t understand why any of these company leaders are on this podcast. It feels and sounds more like a paid advertisement. No idea why this shift was necessary or had to occur. It’s disappointing and I no longer listen to most episodes.

Old review: I pick and choose the episodes that match my interests. Morgan is very good at this. I’m not a podcast expert/historian, but I listen enough to know a good host, and Morgan does a great job relating to her interviewees and carrying on a productive and interesting conversation. I’ve found myself sharing this podcasts. I’ve also reached out to people she’s interviewed to assist them in their efforts. Morgan, this means your efforts are creating a ripple effect and impacting more than just the immediate audience. Well done and I hope you continue to spend time on this worthwhile venture!
