Your little brother has decided the only way to decide who gets to eat his leftover Valentine’s candy is to see who can successfully complete his challenge on the first try.

The other servants stared in shock,
while I defended my new king’s flock. (See Alma 17:33–39.)
I share names with my prophet dad,
I’m now righteous, but once was bad. (See Mosiah 27.)
I taught people their sins to seek,
Demanded a sign, then couldn’t speak. (See Alma 30:48–50.)
When Lehi’s family crossed the waters,
With him went my sons and daughters. (See 1 Nephi 7:4–5.)
Curious by nature, I sailed from sandy shore,
Seeking out the north, I was never heard of more. (See Alma 63:5–8.)
