Come Follow Me Podcast #23 “Jesus Christ will Come to Redeem His People”, Alma 8-12

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

Here’s an irony. In our day, when someone wants to change everything that is wrong with the world, they run for president. In the Book of Mormon, Alma, hoping to pull down the pride and craftiness and contentions among his people, saw no way to reclaim them except to give up his office.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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?

Come Follow Me Podcast #17, “In the Strength of the Lord”, Mosiah 7-10

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

Elder Richard G. Scott said, “Help from the Lord always follows eternal law. The better you understand that law, the easier it is to receive His help.” The chapters that we are studying today demonstrate just that.

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?

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.

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.

Podcast: A Message of Faith and Hope from the Proctors

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

With news of the Coronavirus dominating the headlines and our mind space, we wanted to take a few minutes just to just relax with you, our amazing and loving listeners, and talk about faith, peace, calm and listening to the promptings and whisperings of the Spirit.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Come Follow Me Podcast #9 “A Marvelous Work and a Wonder”, 2 Nephi 26-30

by Scot and Maurine Proctor

Nephi, of course is heartbroken because he has seen in revelation the destruction of his people. He says, “O the pain, and the anguish of my soul for the loss of the slain of my people”. He says it consumes him. But he is given a promise of comfort. What is it? We’ll talk about it today.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
