Ep 73: An Isaiah Recap

Since our study of Isaiah has spread out for several weeks, and because Isaiah's poetic writings aren't necessarily divided into chapters like they are in the Book of Mormon, I decided that a recap of his highlights may be helpful.

Ep 72: Is This The Man?

2 Nephi 24 I love the insight that Isaiah gives to us about our adversary, Lucifer. His pride has eliminated himself from the eternal progression that we are all engaged in. The imagery that Isaiah provides show us there will be a time, when Lucifer is leashed, that we will have an opportunity to gaze upon him - truly him - and not all his false power and deception. What will we think? What will we observe? This week's episode explored those thoughts and reminds you of how powerful you are. You are doing better than you think you are doing. I promise!

Ep 13: The Power of Thoughts

1 Nephi 3-4 How did Nephi obtain the Brass Plates? How did he move past his failure and reach success? It all began with his thoughts. On this week's episode we apply the CTFAR model developed by Brooke Castillo (The Lifecoach School Podcast) and also taught by Jody Moore (Better Than Happy Podcast). We explore the power we have to choose how to think about the circumstances we face which create our feelings, which drive our actions, which produce our results. Comparing Laman and Lemuel's thoughts with the thoughts of Nephi gives intersting insight into the power that virtuous thoughts produce.

Ep 12: The Lord Will Prepare You

1 Nephi 3 & 4 To shrink or to rise? That is the decision that Nephi was faced with when he was asked to do something hard. The Lord commanded the sons of Lehi to return back to Jerusalem and obtain the Brass Plates. But how were they supposed to accomplish their task if the Brass Plates were kept by a mighty man named Laban who had chased them out of his house and taken all of their property. If the Lord asks us to do hard things, shouldn't he give a plan on how to do it? If he doesn't give us a plan, then what exactly does he expect from us? What did Nephi intend for us to understand when he said that "the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them." (1 Nephi 3:7). What is the Lord's role? Go to sisterscriptorians.com to sign up to become a Sister Scriptorian!

Ep 27: Nephi's Vision - Plain and Precious Things

1 Nephi 13 We believe the Bible to be the word of God, however, from Nephi's vision, we learn that many plain and precious things pertaining to the gospel of Jesus Christ, including covenants, were removed intentionally by the adversary. God's work among his children, however, will not be thwarted. God had a plan. He would manifest himself unto the remaining seed of Lehi and he would reveal many plain and precious truths. They would record them and when the timing was right, the Lord would make this record known unto the Gentiles beginning a marvelous work of restoration. We know this record as the Book of Mormon. In this podcast we review some of the plain and precious things that Book of Mormon reveals, not only making it the perfect companion to the Bible, but securing it's role as an essential testament of Jesus Christ. For those who read and follow its teaching, the Book of Mormon empowers us by eliminating our stumbling blocks and empowering us with the power of God.

Ep 26: Nephi's Vision - Delivered by the Power of God

The vision that answered Nephi's desire to see, to hear, and to know the things that his father saw was both glorious and horrific. On this week's podcast we discuss the effects of the large and spacious building and the mists of darkness upon the children of men. The devil has a pattern of creating destruction and despair among the children of men. BUT the Lord's ways can not be thwarted and for those who choose him, the Lord always delivers in power, hope, and glory. We see this cycle play out in the Nephite history as well as our early American history.

Ep 5: Characteristics of God (Part 1 of 2)

1 Nephi 2 If Nephi said that Laman and Lemuel murmured "because they knew not the dealings of that God who had created them," (1 Nephi 2:12) doesn't that make knowing God's characteristics and attributes necessary to exercise our faith in him? To see his hand in our lives? To temper our complaining and rebellion? While referring to Lectures on Faith, this podcast will focus on the first three characteristics - That God is the Creator and Upholder of All Things, That He is Merciful and Gracious, Slow to Anger, and Abundant in Goodness, and that He Changes Not. Hopefully, by the end of this episode you can see areas of weakness in your faith that need fortifing so that your faith can become productive.

Ep 45: How Merciful the Lord Had Been

2 Nephi 1: 1-4 After Nephi had ended his teachings about the words of Isaiah, his father spoke, reminding Nephi and his brethren of the many tender mercies of the Lord in bringing them out of Jerusalem. The journey had not been easy and much sacrifice of comfort and trials of faith had been experienced, but NOW they stood in the land of promised. Father Lehi asked his family to reflect back on all the Lord had done for them, how merciful the Lord had been. What a perfect time of year for us to do the same. To recognize that the trials we experienced, the stretching moments, and the trials of our faith may truly have been for our benefit. What tender mercies did the Lord give to you to make you mighty and deliver you.

Bonus Episode: Trusting God

I thought that I would capture my experience as I have been practicing this week's challenge to trust in God's plan, that He has a purpose that I don't fully know for me, but I know He knows everything from the beginning, that He can prepare a way for all of his works among the children of men to be accomplished and that I know that He has all power to fulfill all of His words. Knowing all of this and practicing it can be two different things. That's what happens when you are a human learning eternal truths. In this bonus episode, I explore some of my barriers that I experience in fulling trusting and how I work at breaking down them down so that I can align myself with God's purpose for me.

Ep 96: He Worketh In Me

Words of Mormon It's at this point in the Book of Mormon where things switch up and there's a good reason for it. This week we remember why the Book of Mormon transitions from a 1st person point of view to a 3rd person point of view. We learn how the Lord knoweth all things and is able to accomplish His work. The Book of Mormon is a PERFECT example of this. Finally, we learn how the Lord can work within us. He can worketh in [us] according to His will. We might not know the "why" (Nephi never did) but if we are obedient, He can use us to do His work and make us delightsome.

Yet, despite the contentions and the dissensions, the false Christs and prophets, incredible men were able to rise above and do incredible things. It take men and women of understanding to not allow evil to overcome good or for despair to overcome hope.

Ep 65: "I Am Undone" to "Here Am I"

2 Nephi 16 Here Nephi has preserved the calling of the prophet of Isaiah. I love Isaiah's initial feelings when he is in the presence of the Lord. I think it is how we might feel or have felt when we have been given assignments that appear beyond our abilities. But with the atonement of Jesus Christ, through the purifying of Isaiah's iniquities, he moves from his initial reaction "I am undone" to "Here Am I." Can we do the same?
