S2E28 The Power of Presiding as Partners

1/17/2022
In this episode I discuss how the Israelite high priest wearing his ephod ties in with Adam as high priest ties in within our own marriages, especially those in the temple and the Melchizedek priesthood. Presiding is SO MUCH MORE than calling on someone for the prayer! This episode is short but powerful. * * * You can find my latest Meridian article that talks about life lessons learned from Eve and Adam. Just click here.

S2E27 The Crowning creation of woman

1/10/2022
In this episode -- longer than what we are used to -- I discuss the creation narrative from Genesis and Moses; the creation of the earth and Adam and Eve. I also discuss how we are made in the image of our Heavenly Mother AND that there is evidence in the Bible of a Divine Mother, a Queen of Heaven, a Heavenly Mother who works side by side with Heavenly Father. She was very much involved in the creation of the world and of Adam and Eve. Please subscribe on your favorite podcast platform and...

S2E26 The As If Principle

12/28/2021
Everyone, at some point in their life, feels like they are in a holding pattern, waiting for that specific, personal promised blessing. Listen as I discuss a remedy to that feeling, as we are meant to live with joy now, rather than living with a "placeholder" mentality. * * * Please subscribe on your favorite podcast platform and leave a review!

S2E25 The Unveiling of Women

12/6/2021
Veiling of a person or room or object, Biblically speaking, was never about protecting that object or person that was on the inside, but about protecting what was on the outside. What was on the inside was incredibly powerful. Listen as I discuss how I feel women are now "Emerging from the Wilderness" as our power has been unveiled! * * * If you have questions or want me to address a specific topic or theme in upcoming episodes please contact me at ramonasiddoway@gmail.com or through my...

S2E24 Polygamy Part 2

11/20/2021
In episode 23 I discussed how polygamy was an Abrahamic Sacrifice. In this episode I go into some of the cultural myths and rumors that have existed within the church and, hopefully, bring most of them to rest. Our Heavenly Parents love their daughters!! I've had this truth reinforced over and over, and even having to live the law of polygamy for a time, they loved their daughters and sons that had to live the exception to the general law of monogamy. * * * If you have questions or want...

S2E23 Polygamy and Abrahamic Sacrifice

11/12/2021
How does God feel about polygamy? And does it really extend into eternity? What is the general law of marriage and what is the exception to the general law? In part 1 of a 2 part special episode, I discuss D&C 132, most specifically about polygamy and why God chose to use the law of Hagar to teach us that not only does He understand the intensity of this commandment, but about elements about the Abrahamic sacrifice itself. This should bring comfort and a bit more understanding about the...

The Holiness of our Gethsemane

11/9/2021
Mortality guarantees that there will be no escape from challenges, trials, and pain. At least once in our life we will have our own Gethsemane moment; one that--while not in intensity or equal purpose--will mirror that of the Savior's in the garden. What do we do when we are left alone, when there is no one that is willing or capable of "staying awake with us just one hour"? And what part does forgiveness play in our very personal Gethsemane moments? Join me in this tender episode where I...

S2E21 In Her Image

9/21/2021
Genesis reveals that Adam and Eve were made in the image of the Elohim, the Gods--Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother. Listen as I discuss what we learn about Heavenly Mother through Eve; when she was created and how she was treated by both Adam and Heavenly Mother. * * * Find my book "We are Adam" here, here, and my audio book here.

S1E20 Two Trees and Two Stewardships in the Garden of Eden

3/19/2021
One of the biggest differences between the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and other denominations is that we believe that Eve’s choice in the Fall was a holy and righteous one; a necessary, vital step for all of mankind to take on the path to becoming more like our Heavenly Parents. Have you ever wondered why Eve was created after Adam in the Garden of Eden? It has to do with the two trees in that garden: the Tree of Good and Evil and the Tree of Life and Eve and Adam as their...

S1E19 How to forgive others and yourself

3/12/2021
Is it easier for some people to forgive than others? In theory we all understand the commandment that we are to forgive everyone, whether or not we experience our idea of justice or even an apology. Most of us understand this idea on an experimental level, but sooner or later on a practical level some of us may start scrambling for the loop-hole, confident that the commandment surely didn’t really mean everyone. What if it is just too hard? What if we just don’t know how to forgive? I...

S1E17 Women and the priesthood

2/26/2021
People become confused between the Patriarch Order and a patriarchal society. I discuss how the Patriarchal Order is a great equalizer for men and women, and how a greater partnership must exist to truly prepare for the Second Coming.

S1E16 Stirring the oatmeal kind of love

2/19/2021
Most of us dream of a marriage that lasts for decades, rather than the few fickle months that we see in Hollywood tabloids. When we look at the marriage of Adam and Eve, it can be seen as nothing short of a love story. How can that be when they did not date? In this episode I discuss the "cult of western romance" and achieving the "stirring the oatmeal" kind of love, and how the mundane, day-to-day living life together is in reality quite holy. To purchase a copy of "We are Adam: the...

S1E15 Mother in Heaven and her Daughters as weavers

2/5/2021
In this extended episode we discuss how some Biblical scholars render translations that show the feminine side of God as a weaver, and what that means for us and our divine natures as His and Her daughters. There will not be an episode for February 12 but join us on the 19th for episode 16! To find the essays from Dr. Margaret Barker that I reference click here and here.

The worth of women and the sacredness of their grief

1/29/2021
During Christ's mortal ministry, he showed us how he supported women and was exactly as they needed him to be, both physically and emotionally. He didn't immediately try to "fix things", especially during times of deep sorrow. He chose to listen, to show support in the way that each of them needed.

Jesus as an archetype for the Mother in Heaven

1/22/2021
Many faithful women desire to know more about their Mother in Heaven, to have a female role model and know of Her character as becoming like her is a righteous goal. However, as we wait for additional knowledge to be revealed, we have a sure foundation in the gift of Jesus Christ. Listen as I discuss the ways Jesus is an archetype for our Mother.

Mary and the Tree of Life

1/15/2021
One of the most beautiful symbols that the heavenly messenger sheds light on for the Tree of Life dream in 1 Nephi 11 is the vision of Mary, the earthly mother of Jesus. In fact, it is the very first vision symbol that the messenger brings to the attention of Nephi. Why is that? And why do we regularly give it a brief, cursory glance in our gospel discussions? In this podcast episode we take a broader look at the Tree of Life and what it has represented in both the Bible, ancient...
