Posts about revelation

Sorry Lord, could you repeat that?

This past week in Come, Follow Me, we read “the crowning event recorded in the Book of Mormon,” the “personal ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ among the Nephites soon after His resurrection.” After 600 years, the Nephites finally were...

10 blockers to scripture study

In a previous post, I talked about our responsibility to learn to truly “treasure” the word of God like the Nephites did– specifically, that we need to do better at prioritizing our study of the Book of Mormon. We...

The Three Degrees of Scripture Study

The other day as I read in Mormon, I saw some really interesting wording that I thought would make a good blog post. But as I started writing about it, I realized that the only way to see the neat...

Don't try to follow all the Lord's counsel at once

There are many things in our day to day, secular lives that we “ought” to do. Like putting the junk mail in the recycling bin instead of the trash can. Or opting for the salad over the meat lover’s pizza....

The restoration was messy (and that's OK)

Years ago, I heard a Bishop say: “Brothers and sisters, the restoration was messy.” I didn’t think much about his wording at the time. But over the few years following (including my mission), I encountered a lot of people wanting...

Asking questions when we already know the answer

On Fast Sundays, instead of a full-length article, I write what I call a “fast thoughts” post. A short, unplanned look into a quick lesson I learned from the Book of Mormon. Enjoy.


I read the Book of...

I could really use a sign right about now

There’s a gloom in my house right now. A family friend in our ward passed away this past week after a short but vigorous battle with cancer. He leaves behind an amazing family with kids ages Primary through missionary....

When God redirects us

A Tale of Two Covenants

I am constantly amazed at the people of Ammon. These remarkable converts who “never did fall away” are wonderful examples of quiet, determined, humble discipleship. When the Lamanite armies came to exterminate them, they...

The whisper that shakes the earth

On Fast Sundays, instead of a full-length article, I write what I call a “fast thoughts” post. A short, unplanned look into a quick lesson I learned from the Book of Mormon. Enjoy.

Nephi and Lehi were an amazingly powerful...

Signs and Spiritual Eclipses

Tomorrow, many of us in the United States are going to be privileged to get a few extra minutes of afternoon shade. The moon is going to pass above us in such a way that its path will cast a...

Many revelations daily

When is the last time you received revelation?

The other night in my studies, I came across this verse:

And in the seventy and ninth year there began to be much strife. But it came to pass that...

Lessons on revelation from the five Nephite runners

Who were the Nephite runners?

Remember that time the Nephite chief judge was murdered? No, I’m not talking about the murder of chief judge Pahoran. Or his brother Pacumeni. Or Cezoram. Or Cezoram’s son. Or...

Just men and women are just men and women

WARNING: SCRIPTURES TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT AHEAD. Do not attempt at home.

One of the obstacles missionaries run into when teaching the Gospel is the fact that the general population is largely unfamiliar with the old “King’s English.” Since...

Not to trifle with the words

Shortly before his death, the righteous prophet/king Benjamin gathered together all his people to give them the instructions he had received from God. As I read through the account of this Nephite General Conference, I was impressed by the similarities...

Pre-revelatory Interviews
