    Alissa Parker: Finding Emilie

    Alissa Parker: Finding Emilie

    December 14, 2012, is remembered by many as the day of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. But Alissa Parker remembers it as the day she lost her daughter, Emilie. In the nine and a half years since, Alissa has found solace in the kindness of others and in the goodness of a God who has allowed her to feel her daughter's presence time and time again. While the trauma of her loss still causes Alissa to feel anxiety, she continues to find comfort in the confidence that she will be reunited with Emilie again.


    2:03- Emilie

    12:44- The Aftermath

    17:58- Where Was God?

    22:59- The Many Ways We Mourn With Those Who Mourn

    31:36- “What Her Life Had Now Become”

    36:03- Avoiding Pointing Fingers

    40:12- Safe and Sound Schools

    44:15- Everything Is Connected

    49:39- What Does It Mean To Be All In the Gospel of Jesus Christ? 

    I think there's a lot of heartache, beauty, trial, and error that occurs in our lives, and to be all in is to keep going and to keep having faith that those pieces will eventually make sense.

    Kenneth Hartvigsen: Experiencing Art in an Intimate Way

    Kenneth Hartvigsen: Experiencing Art in an Intimate Way

    Kenneth Hartvigsen has thought a lot about the power art possesses. He is a believer that it has the ability to help us unite, understand one another, and feel a greater connection to the Creator. On this week’s episode, Kenneth, an art curator at Brigham Young University, takes us inside his thought process surrounding art so we can “experience” one of Carl Bloch’s most famous paintings, “Christ Healing the Sick at the Pool of Bethesda.”

    1:56- “Something To Feel”

    5:06- The Great Unifier 

    8:11- An Embodied Experience

    14:43- The Church’s Commitment To Art

    18:29- Seeking To Understand

    26:56- Back To Bethesda 

    37:07- Art and Empathy

    42:39- Sacred Even When Not Religious

    46:29- What Does It Mean To Be All In the Gospel of Jesus Christ? 
    “Looking at art of any subject can be sacred in the sense that what I am looking at is somebody else’s deep desire to better understand what they’re doing here and to respond to things they’ve experienced—things that have been exciting for them, things that have been sad for them, things that they’re confused about or things they deeply believe but in any of those cases I feel like it’s an opportunity to sort of look into the eyes of a fellow traveler here in this complicated part of our existence and to try to see their spiritual progress."

    Lita and Kevin Giddins: Christ and His People Will Ever Be One

    Lita and Kevin Giddins: Christ and His People Will Ever Be One

    As teenagers, both Lita and Kevin were drawn to the restored gospel because of the arts. Both former BYU Young Ambassadors, Lita and Kevin believe representation in the arts is just one way we gather Israel. Later this month, Lita and Kevin will combine their love for the arts and their desire for all to be gathered in with a special event in the Conference Center Theater—an event to help Christ and His People to ever be one.

    Elder Maxwell quote- “'These are [your] day' (Hel. 7:9) in the history of the Church. Mark well what kind of days they will be, days when, with special visibility, the Lord will 'make bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations.' (D&C 133:3.) God will also ‘hasten' His work. (D&C 88:73.) He will also ‘shorten' the last days 'for the elect’s sake'; hence, there will be a compression of events. (Matt. 24:22; JS—M 1:20.) Furthermore, 'all things shall be in commotion.' (D&C 88:91.) Only those in the process of becoming the men and women of Christ will be able to keep their spiritual balance."

    Carine Clark: Celebrating Cancer

    Carine Clark: Celebrating Cancer

    At 48 years of age, Carine Clark was given a 20 percent chance of surviving ovarian cancer. But Carine wasn’t ready to be done—she didn't know it, but she had yet to become one of the first female chief executives of a Utah tech company and would later be named “Utah Business” magazine’s CEO of the Year. What Carine did know is that she had two sons that she really wanted to raise after she struggled with infertility for years. So Carine gave cancer everything she had to give—and she’s still here. On this week’s episode, Carine explains why her cancer diagnosis is worth celebrating with her family each year, and how her faith has played an integral role in her journey.

    2:28- Celebrating the Day of Diagnosis

    4:43- Everything In Extremes

    8:28- Part of the 20 Percent

    11:31- “Pre-Worry” and Pre-existence
