The Lord Provides the Liahona” (3:02)

Using This Video

You could show this video when you arrive at the part of the lesson that says:

“Invite a student to read 1 Nephi 16:9–10 aloud. Ask the class to follow along, looking for what the Lord provided to help Lehi’s family during their journey.

  • What did the Lord provide for Lehi’s family? (Point out that they called this ball the Liahona [see Alma 37:38].)

“Display the picture The Liahona (Gospel Art Book [2009], no. 68; see also lds.org/media-library).

  • In what ways do you think such a gift would have been helpful to Lehi and his family in their circumstances?

“Summarize 1 Nephi 16:11–15 by explaining that Lehi’s family continued to travel into the wilderness.

“Invite students to read 1 Nephi 16:16 silently, looking for how the Liahona helped Lehi’s family. Invite students to report what they find.”

Instead of reading the verses and displaying the picture, show this video, inviting students to look for the answers to the two questions from this part of the lesson manual. You might write the questions and verses on the board beforehand.

After the video, invite students to share their answers to the questions, and encourage them to review the verses listed and mark the related phrases as they find them in their scriptures. Then continue with the written lesson.

You could show this video when you arrive at the part of the lesson that says:

“Invite half of the class to search 1 Nephi 16:20–22 silently, looking for how some of Lehi’s family reacted to the trial of Nephi’s broken bow. Invite the other half of the class to search 1 Nephi 16:23–25, looking for Nephi’s response to this trial and how his response affected his family. Invite each group to report what they discovered. Then ask the following questions:

  • “What can we learn by comparing these two responses to the same trial?

  • “Why is it significant that Nephi went to his father for direction, even though Lehi had been murmuring?”
