Abraham 1; Genesis 22 – Abraham is commanded to sacrifice Isaac, a child that he struggled for many years to conceive. Could you sacrifice your child if the Lord required it? What do we learn from Abraham and Sarah’s faith? What of Hagar?
Settling the Mountain West – The Salt Lake Temple took 40 years to build. What lessons do we learn from the difficulty faced in its construction? Why is a foundation so important that it was built twice? How can we turn our hearts toward the temple? Why were saints sent to colonize areas instead of grouping together? We also discuss missionary work. Dustin Homer 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?
What is the Law of Consecration? What are its chief components? Why were the Saints given this law? How is it a spiritual law? Everything belongs to the Lord. The early Saints tried and failed to live the Law of Consecration and were given tithing, instead. How can we consecrate ourselves to the Lord?
