Come Follow Me week 5 (Matthew 4, Luke 4-5)
Christ was full of the Holy Ghost when Satan came to tempt Him. We can follow the Savior's example- in scripture, prayer, our wilderness' being with God to be filled with the spirit and prepared when Satan comes. He came at Christ, He came at Joseph Smith, he will come at all of us he views as a threat to him. Take it as a compliment he sees you as a threat and do what we can to be prepared, be filled with the Holy Ghost.

Like John we are to lead others to Him- He who works miracles. Who offers grace and truth!
January 31, 2023
Come Follow Me week 4 (Matthew 3, Mark 1, Luke 3)
Jesus went into the wilderness to spend time with His father and was tempted of Satan. It was right after His baptism. Right before He chose His apostles. Right before He preached in the synagogue and healed many diseases and diverse afflictions. This is a pattern Satan exhibits in all our lives. Before and After spiritual experiences with our Father in Heaven, Satan shows up to interrupt our rejoicings. We need to follow our Savior's example and cast him out.
January 24, 2023
What are you Seeking? Come Follow Me week 2 (Mathew 2, Luke 2)
So many who were seeking the Savior. The Shepherds, the Wisemen, Simeon, Anna- all who knew what the signs were and went with Haste to where he was, following the star, or to the temple. What do you seek?
January 10, 2023
Come Follow Me New Testament week 1 (Mathew 1 Luke 1)
What have you done in your life because God commanded you to? Have you ever taken the blame for something because you wanted to protect or sheild someone else? Struggles and trials are not a sign that God wants you to fix something. That the works of God might be made manifest What has God done that has been impossible in your life (what miracles has He worked)? Willingly submit- marriage, parenthood, callings? - Abraham, Nephi, Esther, Joseph Smith Huge miracles= Huge sacrifice
January 03, 2023
Come Follow Me week 51 (Malachi)
Just as with Cain and Abel, Jacob and Esau... God knows if He is our priority. He knows our heart. He never turns from us! We need to repent often and check our hearts!
December 13, 2022
Come Follow Me week 50 (Haggai, Zechariah)
"It is significant that the Savior chose to appear to the people at the temple. It is His house. It is filled with His power. Let us never lose sight of what the Lord is doing for us now. He is making His temples more accessible. He is accelerating the pace at which we are building temples. He is increasing our ability to help gather Israel. He is also making it easier for each of us to become spiritually refined. I promise that increased time in the temple will bless your life in ways nothing else can." Pres Nelson (Oct 2022)
December 07, 2022
Come Follow Me week 49 (Nahum, Habbakkuk, Zephaniah)
Joseph Smith History 1: 15- 20 Illustrates the way Satan presents himself, and the way our Heavenly Father and the Savior present themselves, their fruits. There are two distinct choices. The enemy is Satan. We can find God in the temple. He is the way to peace, to light, to progression.
November 29, 2022
Come Follow Me week 48 (Jonah, Micah)
3 in the scriptures means Divine, or complete. We have the promise that God will confirm all truth in the mouth of two or three witnesses. The God head is 3 people. Jonah was in the belly of the whale, cried out to God from the "depths of Hell" and was "vomited" by the fish back onto dry land. Alma the younger tells his son Helaman he was 3 days in the "darkest abyss." When he seemed to remember one Jesus Christ whom his father had testified of. The pains are swept away and Joy fills his heart! Alma spends the rest of his life trying to help others feel the joy he felt from God's gift of repentance. Jonah did not.
November 22, 2022
Come Follow Me week 47
God will not remove "punishment" consequences of our actions. He wants us to learn and to grow and to CHOOSE to pair with Him. Our Prophets "roar" His message to the world. Whether they hear it or not! God's law makes life easier. Gives us peace, His enabling power, and ultimately a life with Him.
November 15, 2022
Come Follow Me week 46 (Hosea 1-6, 10-14 Joel)
Joel 2:3 "The land is as the garden of Eden before them and behind them a desolate wilderness." Pres Nelson Oct 2022 Conf "My dear brothers and sisters, so many wonderful things are ahead. In coming days, we will see the greatest manifestations of the Savior’s power that the world has ever seen. Between now and the time He returns “with power and great glory,”1 He will bestow countless privileges, blessings, and miracles upon the faithful." Come Lord Jesus Come! What Joy awaits.
November 08, 2022
Come Follow Me week 45 (Daniel 1-6)
God showed Nebuchadnezzar 3 times He is the only God. First through Daniel and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego eating the food they are used to for 10 days and the King proving them. He found them far superior. Then through testing the magicians, the sorcerers, all his "wise" and seeing who could find out his dream and then tell him what it meant. God shows Daniel the dream and tells him the meaning. Only a God could do that the king declares. The King then builds a 90 foot statue of himself- Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refuse to bow to and worship it. The king is furious and throws them in the fiery furnace. They are accompanied by an angel and come out not even smelling of smoke. God wants all. God shines HIs light through Daniel and his friends, Working miracles! Proving to many He is the only God!
November 01, 2022
Come Follow Me week 44 (Ezekiel 1-3, 33-34, 36-37, 47)
As parents, as missionaries, in callings...we are the shepherds. We are called to go after the sheep. To speak the words God calls us to speak! We are accountable to deliver God's message so we stand blameless before God. We can't control if they hear. We each get to answer how deep we want to be. Ankle, knee, thigh- or immersed in His living water. Water that brings life to the desolate land, to dry bones.
October 25, 2022
Come Follow Me week 43 (Jerimiah 30-33, 36 Lamentations 1, 3)
Jerimiah is weary with preaching and feels no one is listening. Do you ever feel that way as a parent? Baruch is asked to write the words of the prophet and go and read them in the ears of the people, since Jerimiah is in prison. Do you think he was afraid? He does it! Isn't that what we are asked? As parents, as followers of God- take the words of His prophets, the words of God to the hearing of the people?! The reward if we are faithful will come! We are promised all will know!
October 18, 2022
Come Follow Me week 42 (Jeremiah 1-20)

Week 17 Come Follow Me (Exodus 18-20)
God gives an invitation for all of Israel to draw near to Him and hear his voice! To be sanctified and become His “peculiar” people. They fear and pull away and choose to let Moses go to God and speak for Him. What a missed opportunity.
April 19, 2022

This time when they find Joseph's cup in Benjamin's pack Judah offers himself to stay in place of Benjamin. Judah who came up with the plan to sell Joseph... maybe they have changed. Such a beautiful reunion and Joseph offers such a great example of complete forgiveness.
March 14, 2022

Joseph is without guile. It is not in his nature to turn from doing Gods will. He tells his dreams knowing they are given by god not caring what man thinks. After 13 years in Egypt he becomes second only to Pharaoh. He has proven through everything God is first in his life.

Satan transforms himself to appear like the Savior to deceive Eve- ha goal to thwart the plan. Eve transgressed hearkening to Satan and partaking of the fruit. She knows they need to progress and Adam follows Eves wisdom. Once they are cast out they cease not to call on God. They are filled with the Spirit and teach their children. Cain chooses to hearkening to Satan and follow him. He is upset when his offering is not accepted and taught if we seek God and seek His will we will always be accepted. Both teach us to seek god, to repent and call on His name, and to not cease! That is progress.
January 12, 2022
Come follow me week 2 (Genesis 1-2, Moses 2-3, Abraham 4-5)
Abraham 4:18 "And the Gods watched those things which they had ordered until they obeyed." I feel like this is such a representation of what we are doing when we create a family. We are watching...what we have dominion over, what we have been given charge over- told to subdue (take care of) until they obey. Loving...working with, patiently becoming more like God. ONe with God in His purpose and design.

Awful scene of wickedness. So sad the hard hearted ness of the people, sacrificing women and children and burning cities. This continual scene of war in stark contrast to captain Moroni’s title of liberty and the wars which describe there never was a happier people. It’s all about who we rely on and go through our trials with.
September 28, 2020
Nephites have victory over the Lamanites and boast in their own strength. They then swear by the Heavens and God that they will now go seek out war and avenge the deaths. That is definitely taking Gods name in vain and God declares, “vengeance is mine!”

Wife and mother! Joseph had the first vision and leaned on the mantle and said “all is well!” Like the Liver this is a chance for us to rid ourselves of all the things that are not good and decide what to take that will build and make us healthier, wiser, and better human beings.

All is well- Erin Perkins
How have you seen the hand of god in your life the last 4+ months since Covid hit? Do you feel our world wide fast has been answered? How?
July 30, 2020
Samuel the Lamanite goes on to prophecy all about Jesus Christ Birth and Death. Those signs are all for the purpose of increasing faith on the Savior, so they will repent and be redeemed!
July 29, 2020
Samuel the Lamanite Prophet!!! Repent!
July 29, 2020
When is the last time the lord blessed you? Can you recall? If we are obedient God prospers us! Do we recognize it?!
July 24, 2020
Life is not a race! It is a marathon and god wants all to finish! Nephi suffered the famine, along with the wicked, trusting it would humble the people and bring them to Christ
July 23, 2020
Do you know the prophet is the mouthpiece of God? How do you know? It is imperative we know that! Nephi is the prophet for these people- most did not believe and fell away.
July 22, 2020
What is true and lasting conversion? What is it based on? What does it look like?
July 21, 2020
Oh that I could have had my days in the days when my father Nephi first came out of the land of Jerusalem..... If you could pick any time to live, when would it be? Would it be today? Our days? The winding up scenes before the Savior comes to rule and reign
July 20, 2020
When have your prayers been the most heartfelt and sincere? When have they been the most casual? We were sent to be tried and tested, to learn and become more! What is happening to you during all of this adversity- are you being humbled and coming closer to god?
July 17, 2020
Aminidab and 300 prisoners are in jail with Nephi and Lehi who are encircled with fire. They are in darkness but “turn them about and look!” They become God’s missionaries and convert thousands of lamanites!
July 16, 2020
What blessing from God would you most want at this time in your life? What commandment are we told, if we obey, we will receive that blessing? Could you work on your obedience to that commandment?
July 15, 2020
We have Helaman (Helaman’s son) as prophet and chief judge and the gadianton robbers. It tells us the blessings of god were so great the leaders were astonished beyond measure! What does god’s prosperity look like?
July 14, 2020
Alma 63 and Helaman 1
Moroni chosen at 25 to lead the nephite army (Alma 43 details why) vs coriantumr who is chosen to lead the lamanites. What a difference. His pride leads to his destruction and the loss of thousands of lives on both sides
July 13, 2020
Is all that is going on in our world right now- hardening our hearts or humbling us and refining us? Gratitude, remembering what God has done for us, praying are key to becoming who God needs us and wants us to be
July 10, 2020
Talk about a man of God! How do we become Pahoran and act- not re-act?!!! Only with the spirit are we able to see through accusations and threats to what the Lord would have us center on and learn.
July 10, 2020
“And it came to pass that Moroni was angry with the government.....”. Out of anger comes this letter of accusations, threats, lecturing.... what can we learn from this?! Anger is absolutely a voice of Satan and oh the hurt it causes!
July 10, 2020
“But behold it mattereth not- we trust God will deliver us! Not withstanding our weakness....and deliver us out of the hands of our enemies.”
July 07, 2020
“ by keeping God‘s Commandments we can find joy even in the midst of our worst circumstances.”
July 06, 2020
“What will happen as you more intentionally hear, hearken, and heed what the Savior has said and what He is saying now through His prophets?.....I promise miracles in your marriage, family relationships, and daily work!” This is illustrated so clearly through this army of Helaman
June 26, 2020
Moroni was so inspired to arm the prisoners within the city and his army without- they took the city without any loss of life. How are we arming ourselves and our families within and without?
June 25, 2020
We may be inspired how to act, but that does not mean the outcome or response will be what we hope it is! God uses us for our strengths and knows we can overcome our weakness’. Moroni was not perfect! But he was a warrior for God and he did not mince words.
June 24, 2020
2,000 stripling warriors!!! Men (spiritually) who were true at all times!
June 23, 2020
It is so hard to retake our strongholds once they have been lost. It is a war! We have to give heed and diligence daily to fortifying and maintaining our strongholds!
June 22, 2020
Alma’s blessing to Shiblon! What would you want your 15 verses to say? Endure! Continue! Be sober!
June 19, 2020
“And thus ended the days of Amalikiah”. What will your reward be? What have you spent your life pursuing? What a stark contrast to Moroni and Teancum
June 18, 2020
How are we fortifying defensively and offensively against the enemy so we have all power and we remove his strongholds?!
June 17, 2020
Heed and Diligence! What do those words mean to you? We learn because of those 2 words the Nephites had all power over their enemies! That is awesome
June 16, 2020
What does it mean to have perfect understanding? What is the constant stream or noise we listen to? How do we offset the negativity of the world? It is by small and simple things! Daily!
June 15, 2020
A huge added ahha for me as I studied this morning. So grateful for this lesson on what “do not revile” means
June 13, 2020
A bitter fountain can not bring forth good water, a good fountain cannot bring forth bitter water. By their fruits you shall know them! Amalikiah’s desires and intents never changed!!! Just as Satan’s never change!
