1 Nephi 1-7 - "the Lord spake unto me"
If someone were to ask you, "What happens in the first chapters of the Book of Mormon?" you'd be able to tell them: Lehi...Nephi...Laman and Lemuel...journey...wilderness...plates.... But what if you were asked, "What does the Lord do in the first few chapters?" In this episode of our study of the Book of Mormon we put ourselves in the shoes of this early family and search for what the Lord does to preserve and protect us and our families and, specifically, how He talks to us to guide us to His promised land.

In this episode we study Jesus' wrestle with these kinds of temptations in search for how we, like Him, can stand strong. Show Notes J. Reuben Clark, "The Charted Course of the Church in Education."

Hebrews 1-6 - Captain
To a people who felt their faith slipping and their hearts hardening the author of the Epistle to the Hebrews taught both why they should retain their devotion to Christ and how they could actually strengthen their faith. In this first of our two part study of Hebrews we start a study of everything about Jesus Christ that helps us "come boldly to the throne" of God and which increases our confidence before him.

Matt 2 / Luke 2 - Worship
