Steven Harper: Is Consecration Still A Thing?

Most of us have the same perception of consecration that Steven Harper had when he went to the temple for the first time: The Lord “revealed the law of consecration to the early Saints. They couldn’t live it, so the Lord revoked the higher law, gave the lower law of tithing, and would someday give the higher law again.” But if someone had asked him how he knew that, he says he wouldn't have had an answer. Now after studying the topic for years, Harper has a different understanding of what consecration is and on this week’s episode he shares the answers he's found with us.  2:18- “A Foreign Place" 6:10- Preparing For The Temple 11:14- A Three-Legged Stool 20:15- The Oversimplification of History 23:50- Edward Partridge  30:30- Caring for the Poor 38:52- Consecration In All Seasons 45:08- Membership Mindset Vs. Consecration Approach 50:40- What Does It Mean To Be All In the Gospel of Jesus Christ?  “The Lord does not care about the amount of money that we consecrate. That is not the measurement but He does ask for all—all their heart, all their might, all their mind, all their strength, all their soul. But in return for that, remember that He gives all."

Alissa Parker: Finding Emilie

December 14, 2012, is remembered by many as the day of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. But Alissa Parker remembers it as the day she lost her daughter, Emilie. In the nine and a half years since, Alissa has found solace in the kindness of others and in the goodness of a God who has allowed her to feel her daughter's presence time and time again. While the trauma of her loss still causes Alissa to feel anxiety, she continues to find comfort in the confidence that she will be reunited with Emilie again. 2:03- Emilie 12:44- The Aftermath 17:58- Where Was God? 22:59- The Many Ways We Mourn With Those Who Mourn 31:36- “What Her Life Had Now Become” 36:03- Avoiding Pointing Fingers 40:12- Safe and Sound Schools 44:15- Everything Is Connected 49:39- What Does It Mean To Be All In the Gospel of Jesus Christ?  I think there's a lot of heartache, beauty, trial, and error that occurs in our lives, and to be all in is to keep going and to keep having faith that those pieces will eventually make sense.

Kenneth Hartvigsen: Experiencing Art in an Intimate Way

Kenneth Hartvigsen has thought a lot about the power art possesses. He is a believer that it has the ability to help us unite,understand one another, and feel a greater connection to the Creator. On this week&rsquo;s episode, Kenneth, an art curator at Brigham Young University, takes us inside his thought process surrounding art so we can&ldquo;experience&rdquo; one of Carl Bloch&rsquo;s most famous paintings, &ldquo;Christ Healing the Sick at the Pool of Bethesda.&rdquo;1:56- &ldquo;Something To Feel&rdquo; 5:06- The Great Unifier 8:11- An Embodied Experience 14:43- The Church&rsquo;s Commitment To Art 18:29- Seeking To Understand 26:56- Back To Bethesda 37:07- Art and Empathy 42:39- Sacred Even When Not Religious 46:29- What Does It Mean To Be All In the Gospel of Jesus Christ?&ldquo;Looking at art of any subject can be sacred in the sense that what I am looking at is somebody else&rsquo;s deep desire to better understand what they&rsquo;re doing here and to respond to things they&rsquo;ve experienced&mdash;things that have been exciting for them, things that have been sad for them, things that they&rsquo;re confused about or things they deeply believe but in any of those cases I feel like it&rsquo;s an opportunity to sort of look into the eyes of a fellow traveler here in this complicated part of our existence and to try to see their spiritual progress."Learn More about Christ Healing the Sick at the Pool of Bethesda&rdquo; and "Monumental Matters and other BYU exhibits- [https://moa.byu.edu/exhibitions-2/current-exhibitions/] (https://moa.byu.edu/exhibitions-2/current-exhibitions/) Bethesda- [https://moa.byu.edu/past-exhibitions-archive/past-exhibitions-2001/carl-bloch-chirst-healing-the-sick-at-bethesda/] (https://moa.byu.edu/past-exhibitions-archive/past-exhibitions-2001/carl-bloch-chirst-healing-the-sick-at-bethesda/) See [omnystudio.com/listener] (https://omnystudio.com/listener) for privacy information. ...

Lita and Kevin Giddins: Christ and His People Will Ever Be One

Steve Young: An Introduction to the Law of Love

A football field is not usually considered a place of love. But it was during his time playing for the NFL that Steve Young began to explore what he now calls the law of love.He realized that relationships based on the expectation of receiving something in return eventually rot, but when we bring long-suffering, gentleness, meekness, and love unfeigned to our relationships&mdash;that&rsquo;s when the magic happens. 2:29- What Is the Law of Love? 4:45- Steve Young: The Sunday School Teacher 8:17- An Undefeated Love on the Football Field 18:49- A Spirit of Abundance 26:00- Neal A.

Cathy Burningham: Giving All To Give Birth

Cathy Burningham and her husband, Kirk, just celebrated their 10-year wedding anniversary. Upon getting married, the couple knew they wanted to have children as soon as possible. Now, a decade later, the couple has gone through four rounds of intrauterine insemination (IUI) and four rounds of in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Thomas B. Griffith: Politics, Religion, and the Laboratory of Christian Living

In his April 2021 general conference talk, President Dallin H. Oaks made a simple yet profound statement: "On contested issues, we should seek to moderate and unify." In a world that often feels so divided, coming together can feel close to impossible. But Judge Thomas B. Griffith, who was appointed to the United States Court of Appeals in 2005, is a believer that it is possible and the "how" is found within the gospel of Jesus Christ. In this week's episode, Judge Griffith discusses how to bring that gospel perspective as we engage in our communities. "Our political allegiances need to be way down the list in terms of importance. Our allegiance to the Savior and His work needs to be at the top of the list."

Taylor Ricks: Noticing the People Hidden in the Pages

Taylor Ricks has often taken comfort in not just the stars of scripture stories, but also those characters who are so quietly present that we may not even notice them. Perhaps it&rsquo;s because she has never felt like the star of the show herself. Or because there have been moments where she has wished no one would notice her at all. Unnamed scripture heroes have become trusted friends to Taylor&mdash;friends who have gotten her through incredibly difficult times. On this week&rsquo;s episode, Taylor introduces us to a few of these friendsand shares why they matter so much to her. &ldquo;Forme, the first part of being all in the gospel of Jesus Christ is finding Christ all in His gospel.&rdquo; Show Notes: 2:09- The Lad With the Loaves and Fishes4:55- Quiet Heroes8:09- Through the Breaking12:26- Sitting With Others15:12- The Target of Racism and Bullying21:31- The People Who Prayed for Alma the Younger25:24- Adoption and Being Chosen30:47- Inclusion at Church35:27- What Does It Mean To Be All In the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
