D&C 76; 131—It is crucial that we understand the eternal promises and blessings offered us so long as we live the gospel. These sections play an enormous role in that. This is often referred to as THE VISION. Al Doan (hey!) joins us for some gospel doctrine love.
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 46; Articles of Faith 1:7—Patricia Auxier sits down with us to talk about the gifts of the Spirit – how we identify them, cultivate them, and employ them. How can you improve your understanding of the gifts of the spirit?
Jared Gillins joins us for a discussion on Joseph Smith’s role as a prophet and revelator. What truths were restored via Joseph Smith? What prophecies about the latter days have come through Joseph Smith?
Missionary work! How do we serve God with all our “heart, might, mind and strength”? We have great desires for missionary work, but sometimes we get skittish when we have the opportunity to take part in it. Let’s go through examples in church history that can help inspire us. Patricia Auxier-Doxey is with us.
D&C 20—We discuss the organization of the Church on April 6, 1830. Section 20 deals exclusively with Church organization and governance, and is full of all sorts of great doctrinal nuggets. What has the Lord commanded us to do as members of His Church? Jared Gillins is with us. It’s his first time, so be gracious!
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.
Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS.org sits down with us to talk about faith, repentance, baptism, and the receipt of the Holy Ghost. Why are these the first, or core, principles and ordinances of the gospel? How do you cultivate your faith?
D&C 6, 8, 9, 11—Part II on personal revelation, but in this lesson we discuss how to receive revelation and interpret the promptings of the Holy Ghost. Eric Meldrum is with us.
D&C 6, 8-9—What is personal revelation and how do we prepare ourselves to receive it? Lesson 5 is done in tandem with Lesson 6, which speaks more specifically on recognizing the Holy Ghost. Dustin Homer is with us.
