HERE is a link to the lesson in the manual

During the months that Paul spent in Corinth, “many of the Corinthians hearing [him] believed, and were baptized” (Acts 18:8). So it must have been heartbreaking for Paul to hear, just a few years later, that there were “divisions” and “contentions” among the Corinthian Saints and that in his absence they began to heed the “wisdom of this world” (1 Corinthians 1:10–11, 20). In response, Paul wrote the letter we now call 1 Corinthians. It is full of profound doctrine, and yet at the same time, Paul seemed disappointed that the Saints were not ready to receive all the doctrine he wanted to give them. “I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual,” he lamented, “for ye are yet carnal” (1 Corinthians 3:1–3). As we prepare to read Paul’s words, it might be helpful to examine our own readiness to receive truth—including our willingness to heed the Spirit and strive for unity within our families, with our fellow Saints, and with God.

Here are the references I talked about.  Sooooo goood!!

Stand Forever Lawrence E. Corbridge

President Russell M. Nelson in April 2018 general conference said: “You don’t have to wonder about what is true [see Moroni 10:5]. You do not have to wonder whom you can safely trust. Through personal revelation, you can receive your own witness that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, that Joseph Smith is a prophet, and that this is the Lord’s Church. Regardless of what others may say or do, no one can ever take away a witness borne to your heart and mind about what is true.”3

  1. I am so not tech savvy. I keep wanting to make comments but can never figure it out.

    Thanks so much for your perspective and advice on ..well everything. I have just started reading Monday through Friday with my dad that lives in Utah. And I in Texas. We connect each day with ..
    hi dad. How have you been? Did you sleep good? And he always tells me about his dog “Lady” and what he had for dinner or breakfast. Then we read the Book Of Mormon. He reads 10 verses and then I do. We started reading together about 3 months ago. And I can’t believe how much I love the time with my dad and how much reading with him has helped our relationship.
    He will even stop and ask questions about a scripture. And sometimes I think he knows and just wants to have a discussion with me about it. It’s so adorable!!!
    Thanks for sharing your testimony of the scriptures so that I could see a way to connect with my dad on such a beautiful level.
    I miss when we miss a day.
    Thanks for all you do.
