Joseph Smith and friends jammed out to SUMMER OF ’39! (Okay, Im a big Bryan Adams fan) Why use Summer of ’69 song??? Well, In our CFM, the summer of ’39 was a fresh start for the saints, after the horrible Missouri extermination, Liberty Jail, etc. So, I wanted some music that reflected the positive, upbeat mood of the Saints as they begin building Nauvoo.


Who would have thought that within a 1 ½ years of the spiritual feast that was the Kirtland Temple Dedication – the church would be experiencing such rampant apostasy and dis-illusionment. What happened?? This week, we’ll explore why these things happened and how we can avoid falling into the same traps of contention and fault finding. AND – in the midst of all this…Heber C Kimball is called on a few pretty epic missions to England - Music Video style! TRUTH WILL PREVAIL! 

What happens when you combine the heroic stories of Edward Partridge and the Rollins sisters (who save the Book of Commandments) during the Missouri persecutions….AND….Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal”  Oh boy. Take a look if you dare!

 What is one of the number things our church is known for? You got it --- following The Word of Wisdom”! And what blessing it is! This week, learn all about where it came from, why it is so much more than just a “health code”, and what it can do for us when we obey it. Oh, and we have some extra special guests this week who will surely “WOW” you with their awesomeness!

Section 76 – known as “The Vision” – was a Game Changer for the early saints (and still is today).  Why?  Because it changed everyone’s perception of what Heaven was and what our possibilities were.   Because it’s so massive in scope – it is officially my LONGEST episode to date (27 minutes).  I could have just summed up parts, but I wanted to get the actual scripture language.  So, GOOD LUCK with this one!  Be sure to watch til the end (you’ll see why).

SPECIAL episode here with ALEX BOYE at the "DRAWN IN" studio!  What a treat to have him do this with me.  We laugh together, draw together, do a hand puppet music video together, and most importantly - talk about our GOD GIVEN TALENTS and how we are to develop and share those to uplift others.  And Alex certainly is a perfect example of that!  Enjoy!

Gathering to Ohio has never been so fun --- Complete with toothpick cracking, ice cracking, bull dog chases, and a Neil Diamond JUST DANCE segment in the middle.  Parents, see if you can keep up with your kids!   The DRAWN IN series is designed to be interactive and engaging for ALL ages… a FAMILY “Come Follow Me” experience. 

D&C 30-36 --- introduces more HEROES of the Restoration… including a personal favorite, Parley P. Pratt.  Join the excitement as Parley, Oliver & company take their missions into the unknown as they journey to teach the Lamanites on the western frontier.  Here is the FULL episode… AND just the MUSIC VIDEO only.  Woo hoo!
FYI, With a subscription, you get access to ALL complete episodes AND fun bonus features like MUSIC VIDEO ONLY versions (for kids to sing and dance with), “Drawn In” Bloopers, Draw With Bro Bowman lessons, etc. 

Sections 18-19 have some of the best verses about the Love of Jesus Christ, His Sacrifice for us, and what we are worth to Him.  I hope this video helps convey His love and these powerful doctrines… as well as helping your family understand the history behind what led to these revelations, as Martin Harris is asked to sacrifice something very dear to him for the work of the Lord.  Enjoy! 
And remember, a SUBSCRIPTION gets you WEEKLY videos… AND access to ALL THE PAST VIDEOS from this and last year’s Come Follow ME study (100+ episodes).  Click HERE to learn more.

MUSIC VIDEO time! --- When the band, Journey, and Church History collide!  Ya!  The Nephite Rocker Hands tell the story of the destined meeting between Joseph Smith & Oliver Cowdery, which led to Oliver becoming the full-time scribe Joseph needed to finish the translation of the golden plates, which later becomes the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. 

Enjoy!!  (and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE)

The RESTORATION is underway!!  Woo hoo!
I love what comes next after the FIRST VISION… An ancient record discovered, tangible golden plates… that will become “The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ”.   A true “buried treasure”… & proof that Joseph Smith was called to be God’s modern-day prophet.

Well, we can’t ever seem to ever get rid of Gadiant”hand” and those secret combinations, and the book of Ether is no exception.  >Sigh<   BUT, at least, we get to see a whole new MUSCIAL side of our favorite grumpy hand this week.  So, get your white socks and white sequined glove on, and prepare to be… “Thrilled”!  Such -a -oooohh!

Love the story of the Brother of Jared… had some fun with this episode (aka: Granny of Jared)! Voyage with him and his peeps on their impossible, almost year-long ocean crossing… and do some great LIKENING/scripture marking in the process! AND… Wanna watch the first half of the story? When he takes the stones to the Lord to touch? Then, GET A SUBSCRIPTION AND ENJOY ACCESS TO ALL PAST VIDEOS! Only $5 a month! More info: Click HERE.

After Christ’s visit to the people, there are 165 years of just “Feeling Good”!  NO contention, with EVERYONE united & filled with the Love of God.  So, who better to sing about it than Mr. “I Feel Good” himself --- James Brown-giddoni Hand!  See if you can find all the things James Jams about in 4th Nephi (mark em in your scrips) and have fun singing with him in “Living in Zarahemla”

If I had to pick ONE favorite chapter of the entire Book of Mormon … it would be 3 Nephi 17.  Hands down.  Here we get a glimpse of who our Savior is AS A PERSON.  What is His personality like?  Does He get excited about things?  Does He get overwhelmed with joyful emotion?  Does He laugh?  Does He cry?  Too often, I think we picture our Savior as stoic and removed, with little expression.  3 Nephi chapter 17 shows us differently.  Here, we experience a Redeemer who is “filled with compassion.”  Who spontaneously changes his schedule in order to heal the people, one by one… to pray with them… to laugh, weep, hold, and minister to their little children, one by one.  I hope this episode helps capture the character of our Savior.

Excerpt from the Special 3 Nephi 11 DRAWN IN episode.

What would it have been like to be one of those few who got to feel the prints of the nails in Jesus’ hands after He was resurrected?  To have some ONE on ONE time with Him, face to face?  The people in the ancient Americas had that experience, as recorded in the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ (3 Nephi chapter 11).  And although we may not have that chance right now, we can certainly “Feel the Savior’s Love” in our hearts… until the day we feel the Savior’s love in our hands.

 Samuel the Lamanite.  The man certainly had his work cut out for him: Commanded to cry repentance to a wicked, prideful Zarahemla.  Although they kicked him out the first time, Samuel was not deterred … even if it meant turning to “Extreme Sports” (aka: free-climbing walls, preaching amid a flurry of arrows & rocks, and base jumping off the wall when he was finished --- all humorously depicted in this video).  Samuel stayed true to the Lord’s commands no matter what… and so can we. 

We have now come to some of the most powerful stories of Courage & Faith in the entire Book of Mormon --- The War Chapters!  This week and next, we will be inspired by valiant men and women who did some extraordinary things... during extraordinarily difficult times!  Captain Moroni, Teancum, Helaman's stripling warriors and their mothers, Pahoran, and many more.  I have put a lot of time and energy into these episodes, simply because they ARE such amazing stories, with powerful principles... and I hope your young ones get inspired too! 

I believe the only way to catch Ammon and Alma’s sheer JOY from their missionary labors… is in music video format.  Aaaahh Yeeeaa!!

Aaah, yes, time for one of our favoritest stories in the Book of Momron:  Ammon loping off some Lamanite bandito arms! 😊  Oh, but there is SO MUCH more to this story than that!  Enjoy this FREE VIDEO, where kids learn from Ammon the principles of OBSERVE, THEN SERVE and that "No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care."  Truths to live by! And if you haven't subscribed yet... what are you waiting for??!!  2 Videos per week, for only $4.95 a month!  

OK, having been a child during the era of the ORIGINAL Star Wars trilogy… this DRAWN IN episode has officially become one of my FAVORITES!   The story of Amlici in Alma 2 is a perfect parallel of the War in Heaven, so why not give the War in Heaven a little Star Wars twist?  Complete with Darth Satan and Light of Christ sabers, this episode is bound to resonate with the Jedisciple in all of us.  May the Spirit be with you… always.

Mosiah 13-17: Abinadi Before the Wicked King Noah
Here, Abinadi stands before the wicked King Noah and his priests, calling them to repentance and teaching of Christ. Was his efforts all for not? OR could his courage have a “Ripple Effect” for good? How can OUR good deeds have a “Ripple Effect”? Enjoy! (And good luck finding the Hand puppet… he might have a tricky disguise on)

Mosiah 2-3: Which Way do Your Arrows Point? (Come Follow Me April 13-19)

THIS VIDEO IS PERFECT FOR EASTER… because It depicts the angel showing King Benjamin all about Christ’s life, Atonement, & Resurrection (9:34 – 14:27). It also talks about how indebted we are to God for EVERYTHING, and how when we serve others, we are only in the service of this God whom we owe everything to.  Powerful messages from King Benja-Da-man)!

Joseph Smith's First Vision

It’s here! It's now officially 200 years since God and Jesus Christ appeared to the young Joseph, starting the whole Restoration of the Gospel in these last days.  Woo hoo! I love this story! I love Joseph! I love the Restoration and I hope this special DRAWN IN episode helps you and your family feel the power and majesty of that singular event. Please feel free to share this with family and friends, it's free to all! DRAWN IN subscribers get PDF printouts to help out with the memorization challenge found in the video.

 Jacob 5: LABOR With All Your Might (Come Follow Me March 16-22)

The longest chapter in the Book of Mormon, and potentially one of the most confusing.  But DRAWN IN is here to help!  In this FREE SAMPLE episode of DRAWN IN, see how we break down this whole allegory of the Olive tree in a way that is engaging, understandable for all ages, and FUN.  (Wait til you see Rancher Nephite Hand teach us how to “dung” the olive trees J  Wooo wee!)  And this episode especially focuses on what OUR part is (as kids, teens, or adults) in the gathering of the olive harvest (AKA: the Gathering of Israel) in these last days.  Check it out!    

2 Nephi 28: "Satan's Playbook" (Come Follow Me Feb. 17-23)
Time to get your game face on!  We are going head to head against the Devil’s Destroyers (the meanest, dirtiest, cheating-est team out there).  But luckily, Nephi has given us an inside peek into SATAN’S PLAYBOOK in 2 Nephi chapter 28.  In this episode of DRAWN IN, “Mister Coach Hand” prepares you (his team) with knowledge about the adversary’s tactics, so you can face him on the line of scrimmage and WIN!  Rise n’ Shout, baby!
2 Nephi 9: "Why the Atonement?" (Come Follow Me Feb.10-16)
This week’s Come Follow Me has such an important chapter about the Atonement (2 Nephi 9), that I wanted to make this episode available for anyone to watch.  How do you help kids appreciate the Atonement? Well, Jacob says that first we need to appreciate the two MONSTERS (that’s the word that Jacob uses) that Jesus overcomes for all of us. Overcoming Monsters, huh? Sounds like a great visual for the kiddos! Hope this episode helps your kids understand the Atonement a little better.
1 Nephi 17-18- "ProACTIVE or PRODDED" (Come Follow Me January 27-Feb. 2)

Parents, do you ever feel like you’re prodding your kids more often than you should? Don’t you want to teach them the benefits of being ProACTIVE, and in a way that they’ll “get it”? In this fun FREE episode, your kids will learn how, once again, Nephi shows us the way by building a ship and sailing to the promised land with his family, all with a “Can Do” ProACTIVE, faithful heart. They will also learn specific things they can do right now to be a ProACTIVE hero like Nephi. Oh, and wait ‘til you see this week’s hand puppet… He loves to do “H – Aaarrr – D” things too! Enjoy!
