D&C 135—Events in Illinois culminate in the assassination of Joseph Smith. What did Joseph Smith’s ministry mean to you? What did we learn from his leadership? Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS is with us.
D&C 124; 126—The Saints flee to Nauvoo, Illinois and build the Church there. In Nauvoo, baptisms for the dead were performed for the first time, as well as the temple endowment.

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.
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?
