Nephi Was Obedient

Nephi had to do many hard and scary things. He had to leave his home, get the brass plates from a wicked man, and help his family survive in the wilderness. But he trusted God and found the courage to obey. How can you follow Nephi’s example this month?

My mom and I started reading the Book of Mormon. As we read about Nephi, I realized that Nephi always obeyed, and he was blessed because of it. I feel that this is the right way to be, and I want to be like Nephi. So now when my mom says, “Take out the trash,” I say, “OK, Mom!”
