3 Nephi 22-26—The Savior quotes Isaiah to the Nephites, encouraging them to enlarge their stakes. He also teaches them to keep records. These are ostensibly simple ideas, yet we spend an entire lesson on them because they are awesome! Mackenna Gallacher is with us.
3 Nephi 16-21—This lesson deals entirely with the gathering of Israel. Why did the Savior spend time explaining this to the people? Why does the gathering of Israel matter to us today? What role do Gentiles play in the scattering and gathering of Israel. Brad Lammi is back in the saddle with us.
3 Nephi 17-19—Jesus continues his ministry among the Nephites, healing them and blessing their children. The Lord has his disciples baptized and receive the Holy Ghost. Do we ponder what the Lord has taught us? Do we truly know how much we have?
3 Nephi 12-14—The Savior continues his ministry to the Nephites, teaching them the Beatitudes and announcing the law of Moses fulfilled. These are incredible chapters and the culmination of hundreds of years of Nephites prophecies. Our buddy Al Doan decided to hop in and join us for this episode.

3 Nephi 1-7—Signs appear marking the Savior’s birth. The Gadianton robbers surround the Nephites, and many Nephites fall into pride and wickedness in the ramp-up to the crucifixion of the Lord. How can we protect ourselves from spiritual robbers and pride? Dustin Homer is with us.
Helaman 13-16—Samuel the Lamanite preaches repentance to the Nephites, foretelling their destruction if they do not turn to the Lord. He also discusses the signs of Christ’s birth and death, setting in motion the climax of the Book of Mormon. Mackenna Gallacher is with us.
Helaman 6-11 – Pride cycle for days. The Lamanites become more righteous than the prideful Nephites. Nephi calls the people to repentance and prays for rain. How do we keep ourselves in check? How do we avoid pride? Dustin Homer is with us.
Helaman 1-5—Internal strife weakens the Nephites and the Church. Do we se parallels to that in our day? How can we avoid contention in our wards and stakes and promote unity? How is Christ our rock as described in Helaman 5? Brad Lammi is with us.
Alma 53-58—Stripling warriors! Basically, the armies of Helaman provide us with a pretty awesome case study in the exercise of faith against a backdrop of calamity and bellicosity. How is it that not one of the 2,600 Ammonite warriors perishes? What do we learn from the great faith of these young men?
