The Journey of Lehi’s Family

The Book of Mormon begins with the story of Lehi and his family. Lehi’s righteous son Nephi narrates the story of how his father was warned by the Lord to take his family and leave Jerusalem in 600 B.C. before it was destroyed.  They had to travel through the wilderness and across deep waters until they finally reached the Promised Land (the Americas), but it was a journey of many trials.  One such trial was when the sons of Lehi were hunting and the bow broke. Instead of mourning and murmuring like the rest of the family, Nephi was courageous and decided to act.  Sometimes we face this same situation day to day. When things go wrong, are we like Nephi and act instead of mourn? This is a drawing I sketched of him making a new bow. You can read about this story in 1 Nephi 16.

About sisterweber

I am currently a Mormon missionary serving in western New York for The Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-Day Saints! Let me tell you how strange I am currently - I don't watch tv or any form of entertainment; I left behind my family, home, school, and art I love so so much; I'm working 6 days a week, 14 hours a day to bring people unto Christ; I'm not getting paid (I'm actually paying); and I CHOSE to do it! The reason why? I know this is the most important thing I could ever do. I know that there is nothing in all the world that can bring people greater happiness than the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness. This message I'm sharing with people is unique and true. God loves all of us so much that He has restored the church Jesus Christ set up onto the earth again, and all people have a right to know. Everyone has a right to be as happy as I am.
