    Sariah and Lehi also had several daughters who may have married the sons of Ishmael.1

  • Sariah ate the fruit of the tree of life in Lehi’s dream, suggesting she was faithful and kept the commandments of the Lord.

  • Sariah once had a trial of faith when she thought her sons were killed by Laban. She found comfort in counseling together with her husband.2

  • “Goodly parent” to Nephi.3

  • She would have played an important role in helping Nephi develop the faith to seek answers to prayer, follow the counsel of prophets, and exercise faith.
