Revelation is not restricted solely to the restoration era. Most of this lesson deals with prophetic examples from the 20th and 21st centuries. Also, we talk about the Correlation program, which has its defenders and detractors! Patricia Auxier is with us.
Dustin Homer joins us for a discussion on temple and family history work. How can you prayerfully improve your efforts in this regard? Why is having a current temple recommend important, regardless of whether or not a temple is near?
D&C 2; 110; 138—What does it actually mean to have the hearts of the children turn to their fathers? What can you do to have a greater desire to participate in family history and temple work?

D&C 29; 34; 88; 101—Dustin Homer sits with us to talk about the doctrine of the Second Coming. How can we prepare? Why is as Second Coming an important part of the plan of salvation?
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 13, 20, 27, 84, & 107—By seeking answers to questions they had during the translation of the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery were privy to incredible angelic visitations, resulting in the restoration of the Aaronic and Melchizedek priesthoods. Bill Doolittle joins us to hash it all out.
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.
