In this episode we'll talk about the Books of Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah. All of these prophets seemed to have lived around the same time and were possibly contemporaries of Jeremiah and Lehi. We'll talk about how our relationship with God is dependent upon our obedience to His commandments; either good or troubling consequences result based on our choices. We'll also discuss the question of "why bad things happen to good people" and address two key points that can help develop greater insight into that idea. We will explore the truths that our Heavenly Father loves us perfectly, and that so-called "tragedies" may actually be blessings in the end result.  There are free worksheets available for all the invitations made in the weekly podcasts.

In this episode we'll talk about the Books of Micah and Jonah. The Book of Micah appears to be written in the first person, containing Micah's prophecies and warnings. The Book of Jonah is more story-like, essentially a cautionary tale of how not to act when the Lord commands something. We'll talk about how Micah's background may have helped him better understand the people he served. We'll further discuss how Jonah's disobedient behaviors led to distress, and the distress did not change until he made better choices. We'll talk about how with mental health issues, we need to be accountable and make needed changes if we want to see forward movement.  There are free worksheets available for all the invitations made in the weekly podcasts.

In this episode we'll talk about the Books of Amos and Obadiah. They were both prophets but preached to different populations and also lived about two hundred years apart from one another. We'll talk about the importance of prophets, how their counsel can help us avoid difficult, and how we can find answers to our personal problems by following their teachings. We'll also talk about the concept of being "saviors on Mount Zion" and how this relates to supporting those with difficulties, including mental health trials. We will discuss how doing for others, what they can't do for themselves, is at the heart of Christlike service and behavior There are free worksheets available for all the invitations made in the weekly podcasts.

In this episode we'll talk about the Books of Hosea and Joel. They were both prophets but Hosea preached to the northern kingdom of Israel and Joel preached to the southern kingdom of Israel. We focus on the writings of Joel and two specific concepts. The first is how change, although uncomfortable, is a key element in our eternal progression and should be feared or avoided. The second is how that, in order to make positive mental health changes, we need to align our beliefs with truth. Increasing our ability to have the Holy Ghost in our lives can definitely help with this process.  There are free worksheets available for all the invitations made in the weekly podcasts.

We will discuss the idea of watchmen on the tower, or prophets, and how they warned people anciently and still warn us today.

In this episode we'll talk about the last half of the Book of Jeremiah in addition to the Book of Lamentations. We'll discuss how the people of Israel did not heed Jeremiah's warnings, which ultimately led to their destruction. Yet after they continued in their wickedness and absolutely rejected the Lord, they were yet promised forgiveness if they repented. We'll talk about the power of forgiveness and how withholding forgiveness can negatively impact mental health. We'll also talk about how the Lord has commanded us to forgive, not so much for the effect it has on others, but for the ways in which it helps us grow and find greater happiness and peace.  There are free worksheets available for all the invitations made in the weekly podcasts.

We will review how many righteous women and men throughout scripture have been called to pass through difficulty, and how righteousness does not guarantee an absence of life's struggles.

In this episode we'll talk about many of the kings of Judah, some of them wicked and some of them righteous. We'll specifically discuss King Josiah and how when restoring the temple, he found the "book of the law" that helped him reclaim aspects of his own and Israel's identity as the chosen people of God. We'll talk about the concept of identity, especially in relation to mental health issues, and how this can either hinder or help our progress. We will explore how focusing too much on mental health liabilities can limit progress, while viewing them as one piece of an overall portrait of our identity may make them easier to deal with.  There are free worksheets available for all the invitations made in the weekly podcasts.
