Scripture Power

Nephi is one of my heroes. He was brave enough to go and get the plates from Laban. He was also obedient to the Lord in building a ship. He trusted the Lord would help him, even though he had never built a ship before. When his brothers were mean to him, he forgave them. I hope to “go and do” whatever the Lord asks me to do, just like Nephi.
