This episode features the most show notes we’ve had to date, so dig in! We talked about Elder Ulisses Soares’ “Confide in God Unwaveringly” (April 2017) and there was so much to discuss. After giving a rundown of the story of Ammon and King Limhi, we talk about confidence in God and how to build the faith to withstand trials.

Alexander Pope: “Vice is a monster of so frightful mien / As to be hated needs but to be seen; / Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face, / We first endure, then pity, then embrace.” (http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/94296-vice-is-a-monster-of-so-frightful-mien-as-to)
Stephen Curry on being a Christian athlete: “Being a Christian athlete doesn’t mean praying for your team to win. God doesn’t give an edge to those who pray over those who don’t; hard work does that. Being a Christian athlete means competing for Christ, in a way in which you always give your all for Him, and win or lose, you thank Him for the ability and opportunity to play. It means giving all the glory to God, no matter the outcome, because you trust in His plan for your life.” (https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/f9/9b/f0/f99bf0555dad87981cb35fb078742872.jpg)
