Nephi’s Broken Bow

Read about this story in 1 Nephi 16.

Nephi’s family

One day in the wilderness, Nephi’s hunting bow broke. His family was worried. They didn’t know how they would get food without it.

Nephi and Lehi and the Liahona

Nephi had faith. He made a new bow and arrow. His father, Lehi, prayed for help.

They looked at the Liahona. It was a special compass the Lord gave them. When they kept the commandments, the Liahona showed them where to go.
