It is ok to ask for help when we need it! God blesses his children through his children. We see a perfect example of this in Alma 27.
How do I find happiness? Ammon teaches us how he did it, there are some powerful lessons for us in this chapter!
Why do we keep the commandments? We learn a bit of that in Alma 25.
How hard do we work to change and how do we act when others treat us badly? Are we who we are or do we simply respond to them? Alma 24 helps us figure that out
Aaron has a significant amount of missionary success and the people choose to stay true to the commitments they made to themselves and with God.
Aaron teaches the father of King Lamoni and we learn what it takes to truly show our conversion to Christ
Aaron teaches the people in multiple cities. We learn about how going to church isn't all we need to do and see the example of someone doing the right thing, no matter what!
Ammon and Lamoni travel to help Ammon's brethren and run into Lamoni's father. We learn how to handle difficult situations and relationships.
Ammon, Lamoni, and his wife all experience the love of God in their lives. It looks a little strange to the outside world and is often misunderstood. Just like in our day.
King Lamoni is converted and Ammon teaches us how to influence others.
Ammon and the sons of Mosiah start their missions and we get the story of Ammon protecting the sheep of King Lamoni.
Alma and Amulek go back to teaching and have success as the people start practicing the impact of Christianity.
Alma and Amulek teach and have success and then they take a break to help Amulek recover from the pain he experiences.
Alma and Amulek are forced to watch the death of many believers. We discuss the difference between our mortal temporary life and God's view of eternity.
Alma wraps up teaching the people of Ammonihah as he reminds them that everyone has the opportunity to believe in Christ, repent, and enter into his rest.
Alma now teaches and expands on the doctrine of the Resurrection to include other key aspects of the Eternal Plan of God.
Amulek teaches about the Resurrection and the impact that will have on every one of us.
Amulek preaches and then contends with the lawyers of the city. We are reminded that we have to look to see God's hand in our lives sometimes and there are many things that we might miss.
Alma preaches again to the people of Ammonihah and the still don't like him! This time they attack him personally rather than just attacking the message.
Alma teaches in Melek (with success) and in Ammonihah (without success). He leaves but comes back...speedily...when asked to do so. We learn a lot about who we associate with and how we can best serve others.
The doctrine of Christ taught as simply as possible.
A quick look at the growth of the Church after Alma teaches, and a very important lesson for all of us in how we treat others.
The most powerful self reflection chapter in the Book of Mormon. Lots of questions to ask ourselves and think about.
Alma shows us how best to work with those that don't believe the way we do or who aren't acting the way they should. Be Humble and Helpful or Scornful and Contentious. A powerful chapter for self reflection.
