Fri Mar 15 15:16:34 EDT 2024
Episode 12

Nephi knows what it’s like to feel deeply discouraged and alone. He even wrote that he “watered [his] pillow by night” because of his fears for his people (see 2 Nephi 33:3). But as he trusted in the Lord, he found true joy, peace, and belonging. In this week’s readings from 2 Nephi 31–33, we’ll study this faithful prophet’s final words about how we can partake of God’s goodness.

Words of the General Authorities:
Through the power of the spirit, the Father and the Son operate in their creative acts and in their general dealings with the human family.
