Alma 5-7—Alma explains how we can experience a “mighty” change of heart, but what does that entail? How difficult is it to change our nature? There’s a lot to learn about the process of conversion from these chapters. Remember, our road to exaltation is not littered with singular events, but with ongoing efforts and processes. Al Doan is with us, yo!
Acts 1-5 – The purpose of this lesson is to enrich our view of the Holy Ghost’s role in our lives, using the examples of Matthias’ call to the Twelve, Pentecost, and Peter and John healing a lame man as potent examples of the Spirit’s power. More importantly, how does the Holy Ghost affect you?
1 Samuel 9-16 – Saul is crowned as Israel’s first king, but after a promising start, he is weakened by his own foolishness, first offering burnt offerings without the authority to do so, and then in failing to utterly destroy the Amalekites. David is raised up to replace Saul. David is a young shepherd and slays Goliath. How do we sometimes act like both Saul and David? Sam Dodini is with us.
D&C 4; 18; 52; 81; 3 Nephi 18 – The Martin and Willie handcart companies. What happened here? How did these saints wind up in so much trouble? What do we learn from President Young sending a rescue party? How are all of us rescued?
D&C 136 – We talk about lessons we can learn from the trials of the pioneers, ranging from Winter Quarters, to the exodus to Salt Lake. How did the Lord instruct the Saints regarding both preparations as well as their conduct? What can we learn from the pioneers? Steve Pierce joins us.
Dustin Homer joins us to talk about missionary work. The Saints in the Kirtland era made great sacrifices for the sake of missionary work. What were they? We share numerous missionary stories of the pioneer era and talk about how we can be pioneers and missionaries in our day.
