This episode is about Jacob and his feelings about Isaiah and some advice to his people. He included many verses from Isaiah. I mentioned that studying Isaiah shouldn't be hard and scary. Not if we continually ask ourselves while we are reading, "How does this apply to me and my life?" We may not understand what the Lord was trying to say to those people way back then, but we can "liken the scriptures unto ourselves" and see what beautiful things the Lord has to say to us right now. It's so great!!

This episode is about Lehi and his vision of the Tree of Life.  His experience and all it teaches are so applicable to our day!  What do we do when those we love wander off?  How do we keep on the path without losing our way?  What do we do when answers don't come right away? There are so many crucial lessons we can learn from this important dream.

This is the last episode of all four years of Come Follow Me.  In this episode, I talk about the changes I saw in myself through studying and testifying every week for four years.   Then I share your feelings and what the Come Follow Me program did for you.  Your testimonies are powerful.   This program was a blessing from our Father in Heaven to all of us!  I believe that studying this way helped us remain strong and committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ.  What a miraculous gift.

This episode talks about these two prophets, Amos and Obadiah.  They were just regular guys that were called to do and say some hard things. They warned us to seek the Lord and to be careful not to get to “at ease” in our lives.  Obadiah added that we should go to temples for our dead and be their “Saviors on Mount Zion.”

    Melanie,
    I love to listen to your podcast on my lunch hour at work. You are so inspiring with your great stories and to help me remember that I am important in the Saviors eyes even when my world is upside down and it feels like I’m not. Thank you for what you do!

    You and your sister are so great together! I do believe Heavenly Father has a sense of humor:)
    You help remind me to find answers to ALL questions in the scriptures. I have been a listener since the beginning. I know I was lead to you. You truly speak my language and I feel I can relate to “the way you teach.” 😉 air quotes
    Thanks!
