Dorcas (also called Tabitha)
I was a powerful judge and prophetess who helped the Israelites by teaching them to trust in God. With my help they beat the Canaanites in battle. (See Judges 4.)
When I was very old and pregnant with my first child, my cousin Mary came to visit me. I felt my baby jump for joy inside me. I was filled with the Holy Ghost, and I knew that Mary would give birth to Jesus. (See Luke 1:39–44.)
I lived at the same time as Jesus, and I was His disciple. I helped the poor and loved to serve others. The Apostle Peter raised me from the dead. (See Acts 9:36–41.)
I lived in Jerusalem with my husband and children. When God told my husband we needed to leave, I believed, and we obeyed. I helped lead my family through the wilderness and over the ocean to the promised land. (See 1 Nephi 2:2–5.)
I was a servant in King Lamoni’s house. I had a testimony of Jesus because of a vision my father had. I shared my testimony with lots of people, even though I was scared. (See Alma 19:16–17.)
