BM.41 - 3 Nephi 27-4 Nephi
30 min

Today we read 3 Nephi 27 through 4 Nephi 1. Jesus lays out ""his gospel"" and further organizes the church. The Book of Mormon is a sign of the gathering of Israel. There are 200 years of peace.  

You can find the study questions that go with this material in the Gospel Library app or online at the website of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

We're reading from the 1920 edition of the Book of Mormon which is no longer under copyright protection in the United States.

Julie Sullivan-Loos and Carolyn Cesario, Nut Butters That Spread Good
In 2016, Julie Sullivan-Loos returned home from working in Uganda, where she had been in charge of an employment training program for women overcoming poverty. Back in her hometown of Portland, Oregon, Julie wanted to continue her work and saw the need for a similar program right at home - but she needed a product. During Julie’s search for the right product to pair with her training program, she met Carolyn Cesario. In the years leading up to their friendship, Carolyn had been working hard in her home kitchen creating delicious sugar-free and nut-free nut butters because of her own dietary constraints and not loving anything on the market. The duo put their ideas together and launched Ground Up PDX in June 2016, making their first couple batches with a Cuisinart. Over the past four years they’ve gone from selling their nut butters at farmer’s markets to shipping nationwide and landing a spot in local Whole Foods. And I can confirm, their nut butters are out of this world delicious! But the nut butter isn’t the only life-changing part of Julie and Carolyn’s business. Ground Up PDX is changing lives of women all over the Portland area by providing job opportunities to women overcoming adversity. The Ground Up employment training is helping women gain more than just job skills. Through an individualized approach of mentorship and on-the-job training, these women gain the confidence needed to transition to their next phase of life.

The Collin Kartchner Podcast - This is Your (Kid's) Brain on Video Games
Is your son/daughter playing video games a bit too much? Have you noticed changes in their attitude and behavior? Are you worried about what video games are doing to their developing brains and the impact that will have on their mental health and overall success in life?  According to Newzoo, gamers worldwide are expected to spend nearly $160 billion in 2020 on video games. Let that number sink in. Kids are becoming so addicted to video games today they are hurting family members or themselves when the games are taken away. I get texts from ER docs saying kids as young as 10 attempted suicide simply because mom took away Fortnite. We lost a 6th grader in the neighboring city to suicide last year because mom took the X-box away. These are NOT just forms of entertainment, and kids are NOT wired to regulate and slow down their gaming time. And the gaming industry is taking full advantage of this making billions. Parents need to be their kids' brakes, but maybe it's time to get really consider getting your kids away from these games for good. Today's episode I interview a pediatric neurologist Dr. John Condie to give us some serious wake-the-bleep-up information on what these videos games are doing to kids, why they're doing what they do to kids, and why it's way past time to break your kids free from the merciless clutches of that dang X-Box/PS4/DS. This is one of the most eye-opening interviews I have conducted on the podcast yet, something every parent and teenager should listen to. Now excuse me while I go scream into a pillow. #savethekids #ditchthevideogames ************************************************************************** *If you want to keep your kids safe and save their childhood from being stolen from a smart phone/social media apps, get your kid a Gabb Phone click *HERE* for pre-loaded discount or use "SAVETHEKIDS" in checkout. *Click **HERE** to watch Collin's TEDxSaltLakeCity talk from 2018. * To bring Collin to your school, community, company or conference to speak, email *heymichelle@savethekids.us *to get on his speaking calendar. * * Don't forget to *Subscribe* to *The Collin Kartchner Podcast* on iTunes, Google Podcasts, Spotify, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, and coming soon to Amazon Podcasts and if you're enjoying the podcast, don't forget to leave it a 5-star review.

55. Transformations of Faith - Thomas McConkie
*** Find out more at transformationsoffaith.org *** In this episode, we spoke with Thomas McConkie about something really exciting that he’s been working on over the past year in partnership with Faith Matters. Thomas has created an online course called Transformations of Faith. Many of our listeners are familiar with Thomas’s unique story. He’s a mindfulness teacher and practitioner of over 20 years, a committed and thoughtful Latter-day Saint, and a researcher and teacher in the field of adult development. In Transformations of Faith, Thomas draws on all three of these perspectives to create some truly transformative insights and practices. It’s an extraordinarily rich course with over 10 hours of teaching and guided meditations by Thomas, plus some fascinating conversations between Thomas and Adam Miller in which they dive deeper into the ideas in the course. Faith Matters is a non-profit organization, but we’ve made a substantial investment to produce this course because we believe what Thomas has to share  will be life-changing for many people. For that reason, the course is the first product we’ve made available for purchase through Faith Matters. We’re offering a discounted price of $98 for the first 100 purchasers. We’ve also decided to make financial aid available for those who can’t currently afford it — we don’t want money to be the reason anyone misses out on the course. Subscribers will also be able to access an audio-only version of the course on a private podcast channel. For those of us who have taken the course, it’s been a subject of constant conversation. Many of the ideas and practices Thomas shared have truly been life-changing and opened up new awareness for both of us about ourselves and others around us that we simply couldn’t see before. We expect we’ll be back to it over and over again to process and uncover new layers of meaning. We think it could be particularly helpful if you feel spiritually or emotionally stuck or stagnant, or if you struggle with anxiety. You can head to transformationsoffaith.org in order to see more detail about the course, watch a sample video, and enroll.  We had a ton of fun talking with Thomas about some of the most interesting and impactful moments in the course for this episode of the podcast. We can’t wait for you to listen and hope you enjoy the conversation.
