Proverbs & Ecclesiastes – In this all-around lesson, we use the words of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes to discuss topics of note to the saints. The key here is to really pray and utilize specific passages in order to create a topical discussion. Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS is with us.
1 Kings 12-14; Chronicles 17 – Rehoboam succeeds his father, Solomon, but squanders the chance to rule in righteousness. Eventually, Jeroboam of the northern tribes leads a rebellion and Israel is split in two. What do we learn from the failings of these two leaders? How can we improve as leaders? Jehoshaphat later leads Judah in righteousness.
1 Samuel 18-24 – Jonathan and David are totally BFFs. Why is Saul jealous of David’s honor among the Israelites? Saul attempts to kill David numerous times. Jonathan is loyal to David and protects him. What do we learn about pride and envy from Jonathan? Likewise, what of it from Saul? Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS is with us.
Judges 2; 4; 6; 13-16 – How does Israel fall into cycles of apostasy? How do we do the same and how can we avoid apostasy? From where did Samson gather his strength? What separated Nazarites from Israel? Why did Barak need Deborah by his side? We talk about friends, family, covenants, and faith as stakes that keep us strong. Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS joins us.

Why do we need living prophets? What does a prophet do? How can we better follow the prophet? Kurt Francom joins us.
