Gerald N. Lund: Signs of the Second Coming—Take 2

A lot has happened in 2020: the pandemic, wildfires, social unrest, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados—the list goes on and on. It is understandable, then, that many are curious about what this all means in regard to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. While the “day or hour knoweth no man,” Gerald Lund has devoted years of his life to studying the Second Coming. In today’s episode, he explains what he believes our current circumstances mean and what we can do to prepare so that regardless of what comes, we “shall not fear.” "One of the things that I found curiousis that even many of the members are focused on COVID and rightly so, it dominates our life right now, [and] defines our schedule. But we're overlooking what I think are other really quite evident and quite remarkable signs of the times."

Neylan McBaine: Women, Church, Gospel, and Jesus

Neylan McBaine was raised in New York City by a single mother who also happened to be a singer in the Metropolitan Opera. She watched as her mother was applauded and recognized within her faith community for her accomplishments. But as a young student at Yale, Neylanbegan to realize that many women perceived a woman’s role in the Church as something different—something prescriptive. Neylan has since dedicated her time and talents to helping women see there is no one way to be a Latter-day Saint woman. “Looking at His example and constantly being reminded of how the Savior favored the underdog and went against the conventions of His time gives me the confidence that I need, is really the only thing that I need, to feel like there’s room for exploration and for a little bit more disruption in our lives today.” Show Notes 3:04- Growing Up as a Latter-day Saint Young Woman in NYC 6:33- Role of Women in the Gospel 9:06- Stewardship 14:49- Telling the Stories of Latter-day Saint Wome...

Heidi Swinton: Profiling a Prophet

As a young journalism student at the University of Utah, Heidi Swinton had big dreams of one day working for Newsweek, but a prompting encouraging her to focus on the work of the Lord led her to a different path in life instead. This path still involved Swinton using her talents through writing, but in ways she never could’ve imagined—including writing the biography of President Thomas S. Monson. That was the point when the journalist in me gave way to essentially a child of God.” Show Notes 1:43- A Mother’s Example of Resilience 3:34- Journalistic Dreams 6:12- Losing an Infant 12:12- “All the Way Home” 15:12- A Witness of Joseph Smith 25:04- “I Did My Best For You” 27:44- A Cold Call from a Prophet 32:26- “Exactly Who You Think He Is” 36:15- Experiencing Firsthand How President Monson Made People Feel 41:24- What the Lord Allows Us To Do and Feel 45:38- The Call of a Prophet and the Call to Us To Follow 49:40- What Does It Mean To You To Be “All In” the Gospel of Jesus ...

In 2010, S. Michael Wilcox lost his wife, Laurie, as the result of an inoperable brain tumor. Previously, the couple had dreams of traveling the world together.

Acey and Jalyn Shaw: In Sickness and In Health

We may not hear the words “in sickness and in health” in the temple, but Jalyn Shaw believes the meaning is still there as Latter-day Saints commit to love and serve each other through all eternity. In 2011, Jalyn and her husband, Acey, experienced firsthand what "in sickness and in health" really means when Acey contracted a rare virus. The virus left Acey without the use of his legs, as well as limited use of his arms and his voice. On this week’s episode, the couple shares what their experience has taught them about love, service, and eternity. “It’s given us the opportunity to apply the gospel to our life. You can practice it and you can preach it and you can know it but to apply it is something different.” Show Notes 3:17- “It’s Just the Flu” 10:38- Prepared 13:30- President Monson 19:18- Consciously Choosing to Live 21:50- Love, Respect and Humor 28:01- A Caregiver 32:59- An Eternal Marriage 38:01- Why Bad Things Happen 40:16- What Does It Mean To Be “All In” the Go...

Noelle Pikus Pace: The Price Paid to Become an Olympic Champion

It was "the moment of the games" and one that will be forever etched into Olympic history—the moment when skeleton athlete Noelle Pikus Pace cleared a barricade to jump into the stands and celebrate her silver medal victory with her family.

This is Noelle Pikus Pace’s journey to a silver medal, a medal she says was “as good as gold.” "I didn't lose the gold medal, I won the silver.” Show Notes 1:57- Skeleton 5:54- Maintaining Focus 7:49- Adversity 11:37- We Never Lose 14:58- A Family Goal 20:07- “He is the Finish Line” 22:31- “Where You Look is Where You’ll Go” 25:33- A Bucket List 30:05- Competing Vs.

Not long before the first book in the series was published, McArthur faced a significant choice of her own—should she marry her now-husband and move to India with him? Although she still had her concerns when she received an affirmative answer, McArthur trusted the revelation she received and chose God anyway. Now, she is determined to share the stories of other women who chose to follow Him as well. “Our Heavenly Parents sent us to this earth to succeed. …They didn’t send us here to fail.
