What to do about the Book of Mormon?

Ok friends, I don’t know what to do. I want to help others understand the power of the Book of Mormon and how easy it is to make it a daily part of your life. BUT I don’t like it in the podcast. It has bugged me since I put the two little Book of Mormon moments into this podcast. (Sorry I took them off.)

So what would be the best thing to do? Drop it? Do an Instagram story every now and again with my thoughts? Do just one podcast relating solely to the Book of Mormon? An email that goes out to people who are interested? I don’t know. As much as I adore come follow me – AND I DO! – I don’t want it to take the place of our study of the Book of Mormon. It’s the glue. I’m telling you!

Anyway, let me know your thoughts. If you ever see this. Which you probably won’t. Ha ha

Check out my book, "Feasting on the Words of Christ," where I share a simple, five-step method for receiving answers to your prayers through the scriptures. You're really going to love it!

  1. I was just looking for your second Book of Mormon podcast. I was thinking I was going nuts not finding it . So I just got caught up on more of your Come follow me. Better late than never …. But at least I found your podcast and I’m really loving it.
    I don’t know how to tell you to get your BOM podcast to us but please do and let me Know where to find them.
    Now I need to share with you what I’ve decided tears are. They are gifts. They are the Holy Ghost helping us feel the spirit. I’m done apologizing for crying when I share what’s in my heart. I was once told by a sister in my ward when it was my turn to conduct not to cry when I had to share some sad information. Lol didn’t happen. When a person shares with tears you feel it ! Tears were made to feel. Enough said thank you for all you do !

  2. A separate podcast for the Book of Mormon would be great. I just found your Come Follow Me for Us Podcast and I really enjoyed listening. Thank you for the time you have put into sharing with us.

  3. Bummed we missed your second BOM moment. It’s tricky knowing how to fit it all in. ( I feel that struggle in my own personal reading) We loved the Book of Mormon moment you shared, Maybe the Instagram story is the best thing since it keeps it simpler for you but still allows you to share whenever inspiration strikes and gives us all 24 hours to catch it 😊

  4. I JUST started listening to your podcast because a friend told me about it. LOVE IT!! Hope you don’t mind if I quote you in my gospel doctrine lesson. 😉 As for a Book of Mormon podcast, YES please!! Or instagram stories as you’re inspired. Whatever you choose to do, do it because it’s what matters most to you (your quote from Elder Bednar). And the Lord will show you what you need to do. (Also your quote. 😉) Thank you for your wonderful insights and testimony!

    1. Don’t quote me in Gospel Doctrine, just use it. People will think you are soooo smart and soooo amazing and then they’ll suggest you start a podcast! Ha ha ha ha.

  5. Oops! Made a mistake in my first comment. You’re quote was from Elder Uchtdorf not Bednar. Sorry. Not sure where Bednar came from.

  6. I loved your Book of Mormon moments. I think you are so funny and knowledgeable and relatable. I would listen to your BOM moments here, I would listen to your BOM moments there. Say, I would listen to them anywhere! Seriously, though, I love your podcast. You are great.

    1. Love it! Ha Ha. Your wish is my command. I’m going to put the moments here. But I typed them instead of spoke them. But that’s ok I think. Thanks for listening!

  7. I’ll listen to anything you post on iTunes, but I would appreciate not having to hunt for a separate section on Instagram. Your podcast is so, so great! I feel like you’re my new bestie! (A bestie who doesn’t know me, LOL!) And you remind me of an awesome friend who is away for an extended time attending to her ill mother, so in some ways, it is like having her back too. Love your faith, love your devotion to the Book of Mormon and the Gospel, and I even love those tangents you’re always apologizing for–they’re wonderful! I’m also deeply touched by how much of your own life you share, reminding us that, yes, life is challenging, but God loves us and will see us through if we seek Him. I just want to give you a hug and take you to lunch (but not to In n Out apparently, hee hee.) Keep doing what you’re doing! You really are answering prayers and making a difference. 🙂

    1. I’m glad I’m not visiting my ill mother! But I am glad that you want to take me to lunch because that is my love language. So let’s go! Also, we all need to make a sign that says, “There is salt between us.” Because that was MY favorite thing I learned in the last podcast. It’s all about the food, lady!
