This lesson is somewhat of an outlier in that while the Doctrine and Covenants certainly deals with the plan of salvation, this lesson goes into many other scriptures to talk about God’s plan for us, which is fitting since the plan is not restricted to what was revealed to Joseph Smith. Patricia Auxier joins us to talk about how knowing the doctrines of Heavenly Father’s plan is crucial to the growth of our faith and testimony.
D&C 95; 109; 110—Where did modern-day temple worship come from and how can the temple be a greater blessing in your life? Joseph Smith came to understand temples through years of study and prayer and we can do the same. Dustin Homer is with us.
Doctrine & Covenants 59; 119; 120—What is the history of tithing in both ancient and modern eras? Why did Joseph Smith receive the law of tithing? How are tithing and fast offering funds used and who has responsibility for those funds?

D&C 46; Articles of Faith 1:7—Patricia Auxier sits down with us to talk about the gifts of the Spirit – how we identify them, cultivate them, and employ them. How can you improve your understanding of the gifts of the spirit?
D&C 42; 51; 78; 82; 104—Why was the law of consecration revealed to the saints? How did they struggle to live it and what were the consequences? Without the law of consecration formally active today, how do we still consecrate ourselves unto the Lord? Eric Meldrum is with us.
Jared Gillins joins us for a discussion on Joseph Smith’s role as a prophet and revelator. What truths were restored via Joseph Smith? What prophecies about the latter days have come through Joseph Smith?
How was Israel gathered in the early days of the restored Church? How does it relate to the ongoing gathering of Israel as foretold in the Bible? How do we gather today? Bill Doolittle will help us make sense of it all.
Missionary work! How do we serve God with all our “heart, might, mind and strength”? We have great desires for missionary work, but sometimes we get skittish when we have the opportunity to take part in it. Let’s go through examples in church history that can help inspire us. Patricia Auxier-Doxey is with us.
D&C 25—Emma Smith was called to do many important works in support of the restoration of the gospel and her husband. How does the Lord’s revelations for her help us learn to be more supportive, avoid pride, and draw closer to God? Eric Meldrum joins us.
