    President Spencer W. Kimball of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in 1979 expressed a desire for our homes to be blessed with Sister Scriptorians. What an amazing Call to Action! There are plenty of opportunities to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, but as we purposely chissel out time to read our scriptures and receive insights from our Heavenly Father, we will be given the strength to keep moving forward.

    Ep 1: Tender Mercies - The Lord's Gift to You

    Ep 1: Tender Mercies - The Lord's Gift to You

    1 Nephi 1
     
    What is the key to Nephi's success, determination, and positivity? Lucky for us, he doesn't keep it a secret.
    He knew the goodness of God! He saw it, felt it, and was blessed by it. He knew who his power source was. It was the gift giver, the one making him mighty and delivering him over and over again.
    It was the Lord!
    And the Lord was showing up for him, just like He does for you, by bestowing His tender mercies upon us.

    Ep 2: The Book of Mormon, An Invitation to Depart

    Ep 2: The Book of Mormon, An Invitation to Depart

    1 Nephi 2
    Around 600 B.C., Jerusalem was not a place friendly to the prophets of God. How remarkable is it then that Lehi was found listening to the prophets and accepted a call from the Lord to preach repentance unto the people? When he had sufficiently delivered the Lord's message, the tender mercies of the Lord offered Lehi protection by warning him to leave Jerusalem in order to spare his life.
    The Book of Mormon can be seen as an epic invitation for us to depart also - to depart from pride. We invte you to accept this invitation and begin your journey by reading President Ezra Taft Benson's 1989 General Conference Talk, "Beware of Pride (https://www.lds.org/media-library/video/1989-04-1010-president-ezra-taft-benson?lang=eng)."

    Bonus Episode: Our Journey to Depart

    Bonus Episode: Our Journey to Depart

    Departing from Pride isn't like your typical road trip. It's a journey! So don't worry about packing a lifetime of provisions. Just gather what you need for your first step and depart. There will be stops along the way to gather more supplies. There will be times in which you'll camp for a while. And there will come a time when the spirit will confirm that you've done well and that it's time to move on. Departing from Pride is one step at a time for a lifetime. The Book of Mormon will be our most important provision. Partake of its nutrients DAILY!

    Ep 3: Beware of Pride

    Ep 3: Beware of Pride

    President Ezra Taft Benson of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints summed up Pride as Enmity Towards God and Enmity Towards Our Fellowmen. Enmity is hostility to, hatred for, or a state of opposition. Pride began before this life here on earth and is the "Universal Sin." We all struggle with it from time to time! BUT knowing what it is can help us to minimize it and help us move towards humility. Learn how Enmity Towards God  began and discover whose side you are actually choosing when you feel hostility towards Him. Also, learn the "4 Cs" of Enmity Towards our Fellowmen - Conceit, Contention, Competition, and Lack of Confidence.

    Ep. 4 Don't Be A Laman or a Lemuel

    Ep. 4 Don't Be A Laman or a Lemuel

    "Don't be a Laman or a Lemuel!" These 7 words, to an LDS person are a complete sermon.
    1) It is a warning against Murmuring! What is murmuring? AND Why do we do it?
    2) It is a warning against being stiffnecked. That's a funny word! Join us to discover what that means.
    3) It is a warning against being a disrespectful family member. Learn why this warning is applicable for every member of the family unit.
    4) And finally - the last is more of an invitation - Come to know for yourself the dealings and mysteries of God.
    Read this week Lectures on Faith (http://lecturesonfaith.com/) - specifically Lectures 3 and 4. Ponder how knowing the attributes and characteristics of God actually can increase our power of faith and can help us be at ease with the Lord's plan for us.
    Don't Be A Laman or a Lemuel!
    Come to know Heavenly Father and your Savior, Jesus Christ in a more personal way.
    Referred to in this episode: "Murmur Not (https://www.lds.org/general-conference/1989/10/murmur-not?lang=eng)," by Elder Neal A Maxwell
