These episodes just keep getting longer and longer! We think it’s worth it, though, because Elder Hales’ talk “Becoming a Disciple of Our Lord Jesus Christ” had so much to discuss. We talk about Christlike attributes and how they’re all connected with one another. We also touch on how repentance plays into the mix and share a fun fact about Elder Hales getting bullied by a local paper as a high school baseball pitcher. This is not an episode to miss!
