Come Follow Me for Us
Episode 4 - 1 Nephi 11–15 "Armed with Righteousness and with the Power of God”

Here is a link to the lesson in the manual.

This episode is about when Nephi desired to know the interpretation of the dream that his father saw.  I talk a lot about the power that comes from keeping the commandments and the blessings of feeling Christ’s love.  

Here are the two specific talks I mentioned and my video showing how I study the scriptures.

Here are the steps I mentioned in the video above

Book Of Mormon Study Guide

“There is a power in the Book of Mormon which will begin to flow into your lives the minute that you begin a serious study of the book.  You will find the power to avoid deception.  You find the power to stay on the straight and narrow path.”  – President Benson

Set aside a block of time

1.  Pray.  Express gratitude. Repent.  Ask to gain knowledge and inspiration

2.  Read.  (Not necessarily a chapter a day.)  Smaller portions.  Learn to cross-reference. 

3.  Ponder. What does this have to do with me?  My family?  My job? etc.  Why was this saved for my day? 

4.  Write.  Write down the scriptures that touch you and your feelings about them.  

5.  Pray again.  Ask for help and guidance to apply the things you learned.  Thank Heavenly Father again for the rare opportunity you have to have the Book of Mormon.

  1. Hi. How can I get the handout referenced in the Book of Mormon Daily study video?
    I clicked on the link but it goes to a blank page.

  2. Melanie thank you for your podcast and the direction you give on how to study the Book of Mormon. I got your book as a Christmas gift and have enjoyed reading it as often as my 2 year old will allow. I loved it so much I shared the beginning of it with my primary class the last week of December. I asked them if they knew studying the Book of Mormon could be as delicious as eating donuts and then I shared your story of how you were made fun of in school and you found what Heavenly Father wanted you to know in the Book of Mormon. I also printed of your study guide and glued it to the front of a notebook for each of them to write their experiences studying the Book of Mormon next year. I had an extra one and gave it to my sister and she has been studying with it almost every day. She has been in That dark cloudy place you mentioned in your YouTube video, since her husband died 2 years ago and was beginning to fall away from the covenant path and since studying this way she has found peace and it has strengthened and blessed her life. Thank you for showing us and so many others “the way” through our personal red seas.

    1. Yay! This makes me so happy! I’m so grateful you are teaching others – especially kids! And I am so happy it is helping your sister. The Book of Mormon is a miracle. We are so lucky to have it in our lives!
