    I just wanted to say that the last few weeks of podcasts have really touched me. I am a young mother of 4 little ones, and through a series of events last year (way before Covid) I decided to go back to school to become a nurse. I got in the program and started this week. Before the pandemic, I had many “evidences” and promptings to take this path. Along the way, my husband got called as bishop, the world shut down, and I have been left really questioning if I should do this or if I only want to go back to school so we can partake in more of the “vain things of the world.” My husband gave me a blessing last Sunday and unequivocally said that this was the right path and that the Lord had laid it before me. But this podcast has just reaffirmed to me over and over about the evidences of the Lord. That we need to have faith before we see the miracle. That we can do hard things and that the Lord is still in our life. Thank you for taking the time to break down Come Follow me. I listen to it on my commute from school and it helps me keep the gospel in my daily life.

    1. I’m so sorry about your journal! The same thing happened to me, but it was the last four years! I was heartbroken as I checked all through my phone, the iCloud and found nothing. But Sunday I decided to search again and found it in my email?? I know I didn’t move it there but if I did it certainly wasn’t intentionally, but I’m so grateful the Heavenly Father helped me to find it again. I’ll pray that you’ll be able to find yours too according to His will. ❤️

      I’ll see if I can find what you’re asking for specifically and email them to you. Just an FYI, I give the whole podcast “script” with all the quotes, etc. to the Patreons each week. So if you’re interested in getting the full podcast notes each week you could consider becoming a Patreon. Kind of cool perk.

  2. Melanie,
    Thanks for sharing these podcasts. I wonder if you’d consider inviting others to take over the podcast on weeks when you are too busy? I would be willing to record an episode with my own thoughts and insights from my reading.

    Here’s some recent thoughts: As I read about the contentions and dissensions among the Nephites, I am reminded of various contentions in our day. One of my biggest concerns about the upcoming presidential election in the US is how we will react if the person we vote for doesn’t win. I truly believe that we as citizens of the US are not as polarized as the media would make us out to be. As I talk to those around me, I really feel like we can agree on many things, even if we do not belong to the same party. But as the Nephite history shows us, it only takes a handful of people to “stir up” anger in a community and create contention that can lead to violence. We must remember the words of MLK, Jr:
    “Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.”
    We must see past this “us vs. them” mentality and agree to move forward together, no matter who wins the election. I still have hope that , despite what many on both sides are saying, the result of this election in the US will not have either devastating or uplifting effects on our nation, UNLESS we let it – unless we give in to the rhetoric that tells us we are doomed to destruction if the opposite candidate wins. Let us recognize that our common beliefs and goals as a society are stronger than the handful of issues that we may disagree on. Let us decide now to come together and support the cause of moving forward as a nation to progress toward the common ground that we all seek.
    Thanks for letting me share my thoughts.

    1. Thank you for your thoughts. First off I want you to know that I wasn’t too busy for the podcast last week. I actually did record all of it but after hours of editing I just didn’t feel right about it. I felt like I shouldn’t release it. So I’m sorry you didn’t get one last week. Please follow me @comefollowmeforus on Instagram to stay tuned to what is happening each week. Sorry again.
      And, I agree, the political climate is crazy these days!! Thanks for your thoughts
