In this podcast episode, we dive into the origins and impact of the Sense of Human program, a transformative initiative by Life Changing Services. Hosted by Maurice Harker, the director of Life Changing Services, this discussion sheds light on the profound changes it has brought to countless lives.
The episode highlights the journey of Maurice Harker, who, as an adolescent and young adult, faced his own self-mastery struggles. His experiences ultimately led him to pursue a master’s degree in counseling with a desire to make a meaningful impact on relationships and marriages. This path eventually led him to develop the Sons of Helaman program.
Sons of Helaman is a powerful program designed to help young men struggling with self-mastery issues, particularly in the context of sexual self-mastery. Maurice talks about how he noticed common struggles among the young men he worked with and realized that they needed a different approach. Instead of merely addressing individual issues, he aimed to create a sense of community and teamwork.
The name “Sons of Helaman” reflects the idea of a team of warriors rather than individuals battling their problems. The program draws inspiration from the warrior mentality found in the Book of Mormon and seeks to help young men realize their nobility and greatness.
The program’s core principles revolve around understanding the tactics of the adversary, recognizing that you are not your own worst enemy, and embracing the idea of teamwork in the battle for self-mastery. It encourages participants to not just avoid negative behaviors but actively do positive and uplifting acts to make the world a better place.
Maurice shares a heartwarming story of a man who, in his retirement years, stumbled upon the Sons of Helaman program through a chance encounter with Mosiah 20:11. After reading the program’s materials, he was deeply moved and felt a calling to help others on their journey towards self-mastery. This story exemplifies the program’s ability to resonate with individuals of all ages and backgrounds.
Maurice emphasizes that the principles of Sons of Helaman can be applied beyond the realm of sexual self-mastery. They serve as a blueprint for self-improvement in various aspects of life, from sports to academics.
The conversation showcases how Sons of Helaman has grown over the years, with countless graduates going on to live fulfilling lives and even becoming mentors themselves. It reflects on the program’s far-reaching impact and the vision for the future, where the principles and teachings will continue to help individuals conquer self-mastery battles and lead happier, more productive lives.
