Episode 2

Week of Jan 7 – 13, 2019

This podcast correlates with Lesson 2 in the Come Follow Me manual. In this podcast, I talk about what to do while we are waiting for blessings from the Lord.  I interview my beautiful friend Dawn about her current situation with her son who had a brain tumor removed last May and how her family has been dealing with that situation.  It’s so touching!  (You should probably just stop after her … )

I also talk about Mary and Joseph and their examples and give a short story from my family history.  You can find the manual here if you want to follow along.  Come Follow Me manual

  1. Love your podcasts. You asked for ideas. This week my son, who is in NM, asked me, in AL, to talked to his kids, in toddler language, about Jesus being presented to Simeon in the temple. I have a large print of “A Light to the Gentiles” by Greg Olsen. We did this on FaceTime and it was so fun that I could share a lesson with them.

  2. I just started listening to your podcast this morning on my commute. A friend posted it on our RS page. I listened to this one intently and need to go back and listen again. Dawn and her family was very inspiring, albeit I know it is trying for them. I’m reminded of a scripture I learned on my mission, Mosiah 23:“21 Nevertheless the Lord seeth fit to chasten his people; yea, he trieth their patience and their faith.
    22 Nevertheless–whosoever putteth his trust in him the same shall be lifted up at the last day. Yea, and thus it was with this people.”

    I was touched by her comment, the Savior is real or he isn’t. The gospel is true or it isn’t. So simplistic yet so hard to grasp when we are enduring some of the most difficult trials of our lives. I wonder sometimes why he has to try our patience and faith…but I’m reminded we need to feel them to enjoy the good and to be grateful for what we have.

    I appreciate your willingness to share your testimony and to help others with this new curriculum which I love and am still trying to figure it out for me and my inactive husband…but I realized today on the other podcast I need to be supportive and understanding of him and his trials too.

    My only recommendation would be, if possible, to get a good microphone to use because there are times when you speak softly and you fade out that I couldn’t hear at all. Otherwise keep going!

    God speed!
