Alma 13-16—Alma and Amulek continue their preaching among the people of Ammonihah, discussing the power of the priesthood and the doctrine of foreordination. Eventually, once-enemy Zeezrom is converted and baptized. The Lamanites destroy Ammonihah.
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!
Enos, Jarom, Omni, Words of Mormon – The segue chapters! But there is a ton of great stuff as we transition from Jacob and the people of Nephi to Mosiah and the people of Zarahemla. Jeff King is with us to break down historical context, as well as the valuable spiritual lessons to be gleaned from these terrific, if short chapters.
Jacob 1-4—Jacob warns against the love of riches, pride, and unchastity. (Jacob 2 is awesome.) What do we learn about magnifying our callings from Jacob? Why does it matter if we do our callings? Bill Doolittle is here.

Revelation 1-3; 12 – John receives a great revelation while exiled in Patmos. His initial remarks are aimed at the seven branches of the Church in Asia Minor. Why those? And how does the counsel to the saints there resonate and relate to us today? John later sees a vision of the coming of Christ and the defeat of the adversary, encouraging us to be spiritual stalwarts. Patricia Doxey sits with us.
James – This lesson hits on a lot of assorted stuff from James, including how to weather affliction, how to pray and be closer to God, how to be slow to anger, and how to be “doers of the word.” Rachel Zobell is back with us.
1 & 2 Timothy; Titus – Paul warns of signs of apostasy. How can we personally apostatize and what should we do to combat that? In what ways can be we be “an example of the believers”? How does the love of money dam our spiritual growth? Dustin Homer is back!
Ephesians – Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS.com is back to talk about Paul’s epistle to the saints in Ephesus. Why do we have dispensations? How is Christ our cornerstone? Are husbands and wives equal? How do we honor our spouses? How does one put on the armor of God?
Acts 21-28 – This lesson deals primarily with Paul’s journeys and the miracles that kept his ministry afloat despite incredible opposition. What do we learn from how strongly Paul testified to his fellow Jews, to Felix, and to Agrippa?
