This episode talks about Martin Harris and losing the manuscript. It also talks about serving in the church and as missionaries as found in Doctrine and Covenants section 4. And lastly it talks about how we can know truth by following the examples in these sections.
“My Work Shall Go Forth”
From the manual:
During his first few years as the Lord’s prophet, Joseph Smith didn’t yet know everything about the “marvelous work” he had been called to do. But one thing his early experiences taught him was that to qualify for God’s work, his eye must truly be “single to the glory of God” (Doctrine and Covenants 4:1, 5). For example, if the Lord gave him counsel that went against his own desires, he needed to follow the Lord’s counsel. And even if he had “many revelations, and … power to do many mighty works,” if his own will became more important in his eyes than God’s will, he “must fall” (Doctrine and Covenants 3:4). But Joseph learned something else just as important about doing God’s work: “God is merciful,” and if Joseph sincerely repented, he was “still chosen” (verse 10). God’s work is, after all, a work of redemption. And that work “cannot be frustrated” (verse 1).
I’m going to post this one million times until all of you listen to Elder Corbridge. Hahaha!

I love this video. It goes along with the podcast I shared last week with Wendy Nelson talking about President Nelson.
