    Sharing What Is on Our Hearts from General Conference

    Sharing What Is on Our Hearts from General Conference

    Did you enjoy General Conference? It was a weekend full of uplifting messages. There were so many things on our hearts going into this weekend. Our mission at Magnify is to be women who can be powerful forces for good in our communities and our homes, and we felt like there was no better way to do this than to have real, honest conversations today about what moved us from these messages.

    Kathryn is out on Spring Break, so today’s episode will be our producer Sarah joined by Kaylen Nelson, Shima Baughman, and Mindy Brown.

    The Choice to Be Humble with Andrea Cabrera

    The Choice to Be Humble with Andrea Cabrera

    If we’re honest, it’s all too easy to forget to rely on God and His good grace. But this is exactly what we need to do if we are humble followers of Jesus Christ. In a his October 2023 General Conference address, Elder Joni L. Koch said humility is a “vital catalyst for spiritual growth” and a “mandatory requirement for us to be ready to return to the presence of God.” Today we’re exploring what humility looks like for women who strive to come unto Christ.

    Joining Kathryn in this episode is Andrea Cabrera. Andrea works in marketing and has a background in broadcast journalism. She has her own podcast, and the Magnify team asked her to go out and bring back three examples of humility from her circles. This episode features the voices of three of those women.

    Mary Magdalene: An Example of Modern Discipleship with Janiece Johnson

    Mary Magdalene: An Example of Modern Discipleship with Janiece Johnson

    At Magnify, our mission during this special week before Easter is to help us all feel a little holier by focusing on strengthening our relationship with Jesus Christ. As women, we can be powerful forces for good in witnessing the Savior in our every day lives. We can look to the example of the first witness who was a woman, Mary Magdalene.

    Today's guest is Janiece Johnson. She is a research professor of religion and a production manager at Deseret Book. She has studied out the life of Mary Magdalene. Janiece wrote, "Understanding [Mary's] name begins to helps us see her power and her central role. She is a tower of strength--the Tower-ess or the Magnified one. Women [of the time] were not just on the margins, but central to the gospel and the ministry of Jesus. [Mary] becomes the first witness of the risen Lord and an example of power and strength to all of us who want to be disciples.”

    Jesus Makes Our Family Tree Whole with Shima Baughman

    Jesus Makes Our Family Tree Whole with Shima Baughman

    There are some things in life that you have to often take a step back to see a bigger and better view. A tree can have some broken branches or missing leaves, but when it’s looked at as a whole, it’s always a beautiful image. The Savior can do the same thing with our lives, and when we rely on Him, our branches can be healed.

    Kathryn is joined by Shima Baughman. Shima is a BYU law professor, an author, and her background growing up in Iran plus her experience around the world can help us lean into today’s message that the Savior’s sealing power can not only help us be with family forever, but find peace.

    Placing Christ at the Center of Our Lives with Cristi Brazao

    Placing Christ at the Center of Our Lives with Cristi Brazao

    It's common for women to want to be full of light and, like Elder Quentin L. Cook said, “striving to be full of good cheer.” When we are around people like that, it’s contagious and infectious. We wonder what that looks like and how to maintain it, so let’s chat about it!

     

    This episode features contributor Cristi Brazao. Cristi is an assistant professor at Daytona College in Florida where she teaches writing and research, English composition, and African American literature. She used to sing in the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square and her experience praising the Lord through song along with her convert backstory plays a role in our conversation today.

    Let's Label Up! with Eme Martin

    Let's Label Up! with Eme Martin

    The last time you had to introduce yourself, what labels did you use? Did you talk about who you are, what you do, or what you love? All of these labels can be fun, and President Nelson even said that it can be a great way to describe ourselves, but they can also be divisive and restrictive. Today we are going to talk about the most important labels and how we can "label up"!

     

    Eme Martin joins Kathryn on today’s episode. Eme says she prefers hugs to handshakes, sweet over salt, and travel by sea! One of Eme’s super powers is that she is great at making connections and friendships, and her experience will be perfect for this conversation!

Season 2

I have listened from the beginning & Iet me just say this “new format” for season 2 is AWESOME! I love General Conference & love this way of learning anew from their messages. Seems more purposeful & definitely more impactful for myself. Thank you!!! ❤️

I LOVE this podcast BUT

Is anyone else really struggling with the sound quality of the episodes? It’s my only complaint. It’s such an amazing podcast but it can sometimes sound so piercing to my ears. I like to listen to all my podcasts on headphones and some of these episodes can be a little unbearable. It’s also hard to hear what some of the guests are saying. It really takes away from the message that’s being portrayed when I have to stop and re - listen in hopes to hear it more clearly the next time. It’s such a bummer because I really do love Katherine and the spiritual messages and guests that she brings each week.
