June 1-7

Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families: “Have Ye Experienced This Mighty Change in Your Hearts?”, Alma 5-7

by McKay Christensen

Sometimes our view in life becomes a bit warped. We don’t always see things as they really are. I expect if the Lord could show us things as they really are, we would be quite surprised at our narrow perspective and inadequate view. It’s not unusual as we live in the world to be blinded by the world and need to change. Change is necessary for all of us.

Come, Follow Me for Families: “Have Ye Experienced This Mighty Change in Your Hearts?”, Alma 5-7

by Adam and Eva Timothy

The spiritual transformation that accompanies conversion is not just about being better, although that is part of it. It is about becoming a new creature with an entirely different perspective and purpose that comes from understanding the true nature of our redemption.

Come Follow Me Podcast #22: “Have Ye Experienced This Mighty Change in Your Hearts?”, Alma 5-7

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

I’ve always loved Alma chapter 5. It could be taken as the most introspective chapter in all of holy writ. Alma asks more than 40 questions of his listeners and really wants them to probe their spirituality in a deep way. But Alma wasn’t just talking to the people in Zarahemla—he is talking to us!

May 25-31

Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families: “They Were Steadfast and Immovable” Mosiah 29 – Alma 4

by Gretel Backman Patch

Especially timely now, Mosiah 29 – Alma 4 shows what “humble followers of God” can do to remain “steadfast and immovable in keeping the commandments of God”, despite whatever shakes around them.

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “They Were Steadfast and Immovable”, Mosiah 29 – Alma 4

by Diana Webb

As the sons of Mosiah left on their missions, their absence caused a succession crisis for King Mosiah, their father. His solution was to end the monarchy altogether, and transform the government into a system of judges. This change was completely unprecedented in Nephite history, and makes us wonder where Mosiah got the idea, and why he thought it would be for the best.

Come Follow Me Podcast #21 “They were Steadfast and Immovable”, Mosiah 29-Alma 4

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

Hugh Nibley calls Mosiah 29 one of the most important treatises on political power ever written. In fact, the Book of Mormon has plenty to say about good and bad political leaders. Why does a spiritual book have so much to say about politics? We’ll find out today.

May 18-24

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “They Were Called the People of God”, Mosiah 25-28

by Breck England

Most of us know what it means to feel low. Mostly we feel low about ourselves. Deep down we know what we are, and if we are humble, we know just how big the gap is between what we are and what we should be. Somehow, His infinite sacrifice releases us, enables us to re-emerge whole in both spirit and body, and to become as He is.

Come, Follow Me Podcast #20: “They Were Called the People of God”, Mosiah 25-28

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

When I was growing up and first learning about the story of Alma the Younger’s conversion in the Book of Mormon, I always pictured him as a rebellious teenager who hung out with the four sons of Mosiah. If you look closely at the record and put the facts together, you come to know something altogether different.

May 11-17

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “We Have Entered into a Covenant with Him”, Mosiah 18-24

by Isaac Calvert

What is the desire of your heart? What do you really want? And how does that translate into what you’re doing, what you read, what you watch, or how you spend your time?

Come Follow Me Podcast #19 “We Have Entered into a Covenant with Him”, Mosiah 18-24

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

I have often wondered what was on Abinadi’s mind as the fire that would engulf and kill him burned hotter and hotter. Did he wonder if he’d been a good missionary, because after all, there wasn’t a rush of converts from King Noah’s court.

May 4-10

Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families: “A Light … That Can Never Be Darkened”, Mosiah 11-17

by Adam and Eva Timothy

We don’t hear much about Noah prior to his coronation. For all we know he was a half-decent young man. In any case he had impressed his father Zeniff enough to be chosen from among his brothers to receive the crown.

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “A Light…That Can Never Be Darkened”, Mosiah 11-17

by McKay Christensen

Why did Abinadi’s face shine with luster as he spoke? Do we, at times, have this light in us? As we draw closer to the source of light, do we also gain greater light?

Come, Follow Me Podcast #18: “A Light … That Can Never Be Darkened”, Mosiah 11-17

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

There are many times in our lives when we just have to stand up for the truth and, sometimes we stand alone. Has that ever happened in your life? Has it happened in the lives of your ancestors or the lives of your children?

April 27-May 3

Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families: “In The Strength of the Lord” Mosiah 7-10

by Gretel Backman Patch

We’re still riding a spiritual wave from General Conference, where we received an outpouring of revelation and much-needed peace. Following King Benjamin’s powerful address to gathered families through open tent doors, there was “continual peace for the space of three years”. They spent three years pondering his words and being changed by them.

April 20-26

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “A Mighty Change”, Mosiah 4-6

by Breck England

Each year the Saints gather during the autumn season in General Conference to hear the word of the Lord from our Prophet. This is a very ancient pattern in the house of Israel, going back at least as far as the prophet Jacob. Moses commanded the Israelites to gather at the temple each year at the end of the harvest for the Feast of the Tabernacles. Saints today still gather each fall.

Come Follow Me Podcast #16 “A Mighty Change” Mosiah 4-6

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

If King Benjamin were to send a text message to all of us, desiring to know if WE believed the words which he has spoken to US, what would be our answer? And what would be our proof?

April 13-19

Come Follow Me for Sunday School: “Filled with Love Towards God and Man”

by Isaac Calvert

In many ways, King Benjamin’s speech has stood as The Book of Mormon’s version of an ancient General Conference. And though the kind of large gathering his people experienced on that occasion are almost entirely unheard of in our present circumstances, we can still remain united in our hearts as we follow the prophet.

Come Follow Me Podcast #15 “Filled with Love Towards God and All Men” Mosiah 1-3

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

Elder Neal A. Maxwell called the chapters we are studying today the “Manual of Discipleship”. Since Mormon could include only the hundredth part of the records he had available to him, this may be the reason he zeroed right in on King Benjamin’s address and gave us so much of it. He knew we in the latter days would want to learn discipleship too.

March 30-April 12

Come, Follow Me for Families and Individuals: Easter

by Adam and Eva Timothy

I grew up behind the Iron Curtain in Bulgaria. Religiously, I would have called our family Chreasters, since Christmas and Easter were pretty much the only times we went to church. The Communist regime was very repressive when it came to religion and regular gatherings weren’t permitted. Easter Sunday though, was like a shaft of light through the shadows.

Come Follow Me for Sunday School: Easter–“He Shall Rise with Healing in His Wings”

by McKay Christensen

Easter is a time to remember the everlasting love of our Heavenly Father. It is a time to renew our trust in Him because he is trustworthy. The Lord Jesus Christ prepared an escape of death and hell, and we hold the promise of a glorious resurrection.

Come Follow Me Podcast #14, Easter – “He Shall Rise with Healing in His Wings”

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

What an exciting thing to talk about this week: the newness of life that comes and the celebration of Easter—the atoning sacrifice, death and resurrection of our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

March 23-29

Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families: “He Works In Me To Do His Will”, Enos-Words of Mormon

by Gretel Backman Patch

Sometimes a concise block of scripture can be especially powerful. Enos, Jarom, Omni, and Words of Mormon comprise 10 pages of the Book of Mormon. Yet, what lessons we learn in the pages about mighty prayer and forgiveness, the influence of righteous parents, offering our whole souls to God, and the wise purposes of the Lord.

Come Follow Me for Sunday School: “He Works in Me to Do His Will”, Enos – Words of Mormon

by Diana Webb

In this week’s readings, we will cover almost three hundred years of Nephite history. Most of our other readings contain only a few decades of history, at most. So, put on your seat belts, because we will be traveling at light speed. . . Well, almost.

Come Follow Me Podcast #13, Enos-Words of Mormon, “He Works in Me to do His Will”

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

I remember, following Enos’s example, of going to the woods to pray in my life, in fact, more than once. I don’t think the location matters, but there is something magnificent to learn about prayer from Enos in his book.

March 16-22

Come Follow Me for Individuals and Families: “The Lord Labors with Us”, Jacob 5-7

by Aaron Hutchins

As much as we know about Moses, Isaiah, Nephi, Alma, and other prophets, wouldn’t it be wonderful if we had the Book of Zenos? What other stories or teachings might it contain?

Come Follow Me for Sunday School: “The Lord Labors With Us”, Jacob 5-7

by Breck England

Many gospel teachers have explained Jacob’s allegory of the tame and wild olive trees as it applies to the history of the house of Israel. Instead, let’s liken the allegory of the olive trees to ourselves. We don’t do that very often.

Come Follow Me Podcast #12 “The Lord Labors with Us”, Jacob 5-7

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

Some of our students over the years have said, “We just can’t understand all the symbols and the confusion about the trees and different places and times.” Some of our institute students have even skipped reading Jacob 5 altogether. I guarantee you, we’re not going to skip this and you’ll come to see why this is one of our very favorite chapters.

March 9-15

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “Be Reconciled unto God through the Atonement of Christ”, Jacob 1-4

by Isaac Calvert

Jacob had a rough life: born in the desert, never knowing the home from whence he fled only to sail in a curious ship to a place he knew nothing about. But despite these trials (and maybe even because of them), Jacob beheld the glory of God in his youth and was “blessed even as they unto whom he [would] minister in the flesh.”

Come Follow Me Podcast #11 “Be Reconciled unto God through the Atonement of Christ”, Jacob 1-4

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

When Jacob speaks at the temple in the book named after him, it is with both anxiety and boldness, setting an example for all us who have to teach the people we love in this difficult world. It is not a time to shy away from the truth.

March 2-8

Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families: “This is the Way”, 2 Nephi 31-33

by Adam and Eva Timothy

There’s something amazing about reading the final words of any prophet as they sit down and seek to synthesize their life’s experience into words of counsel to those that follow. Throughout Nephi we loved searching for the phrase, “My Soul Delighteth” to see all the things he felt were most precious about the gospel.

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “This is the Way”, 2 Nephi 31-33

by McKay Christensen

Some people seem to be clear about their beliefs and have an ability to live true to their testimony. How do they get such understanding?

Come Follow Me Podcast #10 “This is the Way”, 2 Nephi 31-33

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

In all our readings and studies of 2 Nephi chapters 31-33, have we possibly missed some critical teachings for our own spiritual progress? Let’s study together and see what we can find out.

February 24-March 1

Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families: “A Marvelous Work and a Wonder” 2 Nephi 26-30

by Gretel Backman Patch

Christ is calling us, the men and women of the Church, to help gather scattered Israel. That includes scattered living rooms and scattered weekly schedules and scattered teenage brains and scattered families. We all have different starting points but Christ will meet us wherever we are, thrilled that we’re making any effort to grow closer to him.

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “A Marvelous Work and a Wonder” 2 Nephi 26-30

by Diana Webb

Nephi mourned because of the destruction of his descendants which he was shown in vision. Because of his great love for him and indeed for all his children, the Lord showed Nephi how his people would be restored to the testimony of Christ through the Gentiles in the last days.

February 17-23

Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families: “We Rejoice in Christ” 2 Nephi 11-25

by Aaron Hutchins

How would you feel after a decade of constantly defending your testimony and your personal safety against those who mocked and attacked you, like Laman and Lemuel did to Nephi, only to learn that someone who lived 150 years before you, had the same testimony of the Savior and similar life experiences to yours?

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “We Rejoice in Christ”, 2 Nephi 11-25

by Breck England

Nephi’s record of the writings of Isaiah make up the bulk of this lesson. Why does Nephi cite these particular chapters of Isaiah? Why invest so much energy and space to these writings?

Come, Follow Me Podcast #8: “We Rejoice in Christ”, 2 Nephi 11-25

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

It is said that even a speeding bullet couldn’t get through Isaiah—well, let’s try to prove that wrong today. Let’s have some fun studying these seemingly difficult chapters together!

February 10-16

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “Oh, How Great the Plan of Our God”

by Isaac Calvert

I’ve often wondered why Isaiah was so important for us to study. But the question of “Why?” hasn’t helped me nearly as much as the question of “How?” How can we study Isaiah, a book of scripture that Nephi openly admits is difficult for people to understand if they aren’t deeply familiar with the prophesying of the Jews?

Come Follow Me Podcast #7 “O How Great the Plan of Our God” (2 Nephi 6-10)

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

It’s fun to be reading the scriptures and suddenly have something entirely new jump out at you, like it’s never been there before. We hope we find some of those surprises today.

February 3-9

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “We Lived After the Manner of Happiness” 2 Nephi 1-5

by McKay Christensen

2 Nephi 1-5 are the final words of Lehi to his children. If you were about to pass on, what would you tell your children?

Come Follow Me Podcast Book of Mormon #6 “We Lived after the Manner of Happiness”, 2 Nephi 1-5

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

How can Lehi who has suffered so much in the wilderness journey, including the murderous rejection of his own sons, Laman and Lemuel, possibly write that man is that he might have joy? Does he know something that we sometimes forget? We’ll find out as we study together.

January 27-February 2

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “I Will Prepare the Way Before You” 1 Nephi 16-22

by Diana Webb

We might do well to consider the “small means” that have been provided by the Lord to guide us in our lives. We might consider these our “personal Liahonas.”

Come Follow Me Podcast BofM #5 “I Will Prepare the Way Before You”, 1 Nephi 16-22

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

A theme is so prevalent throughout scripture, and especially in the Book of Mormon, that you would think we would never miss it, and yet we do. What is that elusive theme? We’ll tell you today.

January 20-26

Come Follow Me Podcast BofM #4 “Armed with Righteousness and the Power of God”, 1 Nephi 11-15

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

After Lehi had his dream of the tree of life, his sons had some choices, and, based on those, in the next few hours had radically different experiences. Laman and Lemuel went to their tent and fought about the meaning of the dream, and Nephi was swept up to a mountain and given a vision. What Laman and Lemuel missed out on in insisting on their war of words!

January 13-19

Come Follow Me Book of Mormon Podcast 3, “Come and Partake of the Fruit” — 1 Nephi 8-10

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

This week we are studying one of the pivotal stories in the Book of Mormon, Lehi’s vision of the Tree of Life.

January 6-12

Come Follow Me: Book of Mormon #2, “I Will Go and Do” , 1 Nephi 1-7

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

We all know the 1st book of Nephi so well, you may wonder if there is still more to learn. Welcome to the inexhaustible Book of Mormon that always surprises us with its spiritual richness and historical authenticity. You may know these stories, but we are about to enter a treasure room.

December 30-January 5

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: Introductory Pages of the Book of Mormon

by Diana Webb

As we begin our study of the Book of Mormon this year of 2020, my desire is that we will open our eyes to the majesty of the book, and read it in a way that we have never done before.

Come Follow Me: The First Book of Mormon Podcast of the New Year

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

“My dear brothers and sisters, I promise that as you prayerfully study the Book of Mormon every day, you will make better decisions—every day. I promise that as you ponder what you study, the windows of heaven will open, and you will receive answers to your own questions and direction for your own life. I promise that as you daily immerse yourself in the Book of Mormon, you can be immunized against the evils of the day…”
