Sorry guys, this episode is a little heavier than normal.  I'm just struggling right now, but this week's reading assignment really helped me and I hope it helps you too.  Especially Jeffrey R. Holland's talk "An High Priest of Good Things To Come", which is my favorite conference talk EVER.  Ever.  For real.  We talk about that, about drawing near to the Lord in faith, the Melchizedek Priesthood, The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), and you get to hear the song "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)" by Hillsong United.

Episode 36 (Sept. 9-15) "A Mixtape for Trials and Tribulations"

This week's episode is kind of different.  I was reading 2 Corinthians 4, and I started thinking of you guys- my listeners.  I started thinking about all the trials YOU are going through.  I started wondering what I could do to make your burdens lighter.  The only thing that came to mind was to make you a mixtape.  I used Paul's words in 2 Corinthians 4, words from our modern day Apostles and General Authorities, and some of my favorite inspiring and uplifting songs.  It's not going to help anyone prep for Sunday School or Come Follow Me lessons, but I hope it lifts you up...and maybe makes your burdens just a bit lighter.  For a track listing and more fun, visit:  http://www.facebook.com/thesaviorsaidhttps://www.instagram.com/thesaviorsaid/ http://thesaviorsaid.blogspot.com/

What is that one scripture that just shakes your world? This week in the book of James, we find a scripture that shook a 14 year old boy's world and, as a consequence, the rest of the world forever more with the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth.  In this episode I talk about a scripture I found in James that I thought applied to me.  What will you find?  We also talk about who was James, a time where I had to endure with patience, faith in Jesus Christ, and one of my bffs from the Old Testament, Rahab.
