RiseUp is a podcast for young adults in Seminary and Institute who are looking for answers to difficult or critical questions about the LDS (Mormon) Church, and the courage to share those answers with others.
RiseUp is a show geared towards Young Adults in seeking to find answers to questions about LDS (Mormon) culture and doctrine. But the podcast is also meant to provide help, courage, and direction for those wanting to defend their beliefs and testimony.
In this episode of RiseUp, host Nick Galieti uses a metaphorical game show to introduce the challenge of defending our beliefs and in providing answers, as well as the importance of establishing a strong testimony to be an anchor when such challenges arise.
Using the article, The Do’s and Don’ts of Defending Your Beliefs by David A. Edwards (posted on LDS.org) we learn some fundamental approaches to the challenge of finding courage to defend our beliefs with friends and neighbors.
Jimmy Carpenter gives some personal insights as well as quotes from Elder D. Todd Christofferson, President Uchtdorf, President Monson, and Elder Ridd of the Young Men’s General Presidency. These insights address the idea that we all face struggles and doubts, but there are ways to prepare yourself for those times, as well as provide insights on the best ways to be patient in studying the gospel and finding answers to doubts.
The RiseUp Podcast is designed to offer answers to difficult or critical questions young adults have about LDS Church teachings or cultural practices. Feel free to ask questions about this episode or other topics in the comments section of this post @ blog.fairmormon.org, or email.
“Have you prayed about it?” It’s a question that is often asked, but few may understand what it means to find answers to prayer. What kind of effort is needed to receive answers to prayer? How will we know when we have an answer to a prayer?
In this episode of RiseUp, Blake Dalton, a seminary teacher in Utah shares his insights from both the scriptures and from stories that illustrate principles that will help people find answers to prayers.
When it comes to difficult or critical questions about ANYTHING that comes up in life, wether it be a difficult question, or wether it be some other life choice, there is a good bit or work, of discipline that is needed if we are going to find the answer the Lord wants us to have. An all knowing God will not be without an answer to any question, but an all loving God will also help us to earn that answer so that the answer has the most value in our lives. Much like the Brother of Jared in the book of Ether in the Book of Mormon, our prayers should involve a lot of work, but it will also result in some marvelous experiences that will help us to know more fully who God is, and that he loves us.
