Lynne Wilson: How the Savior Empowered Women
For years, Dr. Lynne Wilson has met with theologians around the world from various faith traditions. She repeatedly heard theories at these meetings that inequality between men and women stemmed from the Bible. She was adamant that inequality was not something Christ taught—instead she believed that Jesus Christ emancipated women. So, she set out to do research to back it up. On this week’s episode, Dr. Wilson shares her research as well as her belief that there is no better place to be as a woman than in the gospel of Jesus Christ. “I just think we’re measuring the wrong things. It’s not about gender, it’s about mutuality and that is what Christ tried to break down in the meridian of time so that men and women and children, old and young, would work together together to build the kingdom.” Show Notes 2:55- Treatment of Women in the World While Jesus Walked12:39- Initial Interest in Research14:40- Segregation18:39- Servitude24:40- Inviting Women to Speak27:03- Childbearing30:28- Idleness and Lowness of Spirit35:00- Witnesses40:37- Being a Woman in the Church46:31- What Does It Mean To Be All In the Gospel of Jesus Christ Find the full episode transcript at ldsliving.com/allin.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Jenn Knight: On the Other Side of the Veil
No mother should ever have to bury her child. Jenn Knight has been through the heartbreaking experience twice, all while suffering multiple forms of cancer due to a genetic mutation. But on today’s episode, Jen speaks of angels—both the heavenly and the earthly kind. As she wrote on her blog, "The room sometimes feels crowded with others. ... I firmly believe that these spiritual wind gusts are ethereal angels God has sent to comfort and help us from the other side.” “I think there's a limit to how deeply we can really come to know the Savior if we're only identifying with him in our moments of peace and love, and happiness. The real grit of our discipleship is reaching out to him when we hit the bottom.” Show Notes 3:05- Necessity of Opposition5:41- Unasked Prayers9:13- Learning About Ourselves11:32- Hallelujah 16:47- "Christ Is Not Far Distant" 22:20- The Cone26:54- If Your Worst Fears Were True29:19- Missionary Service-The Gospel in Action32:16- Hope for a New Year35:07- What Does It Mean To Be All In the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

Britain Covey: Getting Back up After Tragedy and in the Face of Adversity
On New Year's Day, Britain Covey will play the biggest football game of his life thus far. He and his University of Utah teammates will play in the Rose Bowl against Ohio State, in what, win or lose, will be an incredible finish to a remarkable season. But at the end of September, he and his teammates were just a group of young men heartbroken over the loss of two of their best friends in just over 10 months. They have responded in a remarkable way and on this week’s episode, Covey discusses the faith that has carried all of them through. "I believe that there are people in the building who mock and scorn, but if they see people who smile back and hold tight, it does something to the people mocking and scorning...the Spirit touches them and they want to come and join and say, 'Why does that person have that peace?'"

J. David Pulsipher: Making Peace with Book of Mormon Violence
Millions around the world have found peace within the pages of the Book of Mormon; beautiful teachings about the Prince of Peace and His atoning sacrifice calm our fears and instill hope. But the Book of Mormon also covers a great deal of contention and violence. Why were such graphic events included and what are we supposed to learn from all the accounts of war and conflict?

Brett and Kate McKay: Loving the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the Second Half of Life
Various philosophers have often mused that there are two halves of our lives. What separates them is the period of time when we transition from a belief system to a humble inner knowing. This week’s guests, Brett and Kate McKay, are not strangers to the evolution of faith and say they have experienced significant moments of decision within their own faith. But they have also found that it is very possible to transition from the first half of life to the second with your faith intact. They believe faith shouldn’t be boring; instead, it’s very possible to stay passionate about the gospel after leaving young adulthood. “I think that there should be a certain romance and enchantment that happens with the gospel.” Show Notes: 3:46- Law School Blogger7:14- Transitioning From the First Half of Life to the Second11:42- Embracing Paradox17:24- Communal and Individual Faith22:45- The Freedom of the Covenant Path26:01- “Maximum Marriage”28:40- “For Those Moments When Love Falters”33:55- A Gospel that Fills Your Soul With Enchantment37:40- Studying It Out39:48- Reinfusing Your Actions with Love41:30- What Does It Mean To Be All In the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

Nate and Dayna Checketts: Forever Forward
In 2002, President James E. Faust gave a talk during the priesthood session of general conference. He said, “Your future may not hold fame or fortune, but it can be something far more lasting and fulfilling. Remember that what we do in life echoes in eternity.” Twelve years later in 2014, Nate Checketts co-founded Rhone Apparel, an activewear company for men. He hoped that positive messages on men’s apparel could help shape the future of the little men he and his wife, Dayna, are raising. So he began adding messages on the inside of his company’s clothes, including this quote by President Faust. On today’s episode, we talk with Nate and Dayna about why they are passionate about creating a brand that teaches correct principles. "It is emotionally exhausting to try and decide whether or not you are going to serve in the church, whether or not you're going to read your scriptures that night, whether or not you're going to say a prayer. ...It is so much easier to just be fully committed to the Lord."

Andrea Hales: Gathering Tribes
Andrea Hales felt inadequate to the task but she couldn’t deny the prompting she was feeling to start a podcast. The podcast would tell the stories of Native American Latter-day Saints and provide a platform to share their testimonies as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Hales knew she didn’t grow up close to her Navajo side of the family but she felt her heart turning to her fathers and, as a result, a podcast called “Tribe of Testimonies” was born.
