In 2 Nephi 6–10, Jacob encourages the covenant people always to remember God, just as He always remembers us. Jacob teaches from the words of Isaiah to help his people learn about God’s promised blessings and glorify His name. Today, as we study these passages, we’ll discuss how we can fulfill those words as well.

Moses, Nephi, and Joseph Smith are all names on the page for us today. But their struggles and faith were real. And we can learn from their lessons.

Even after experiencing loss and trials in the wilderness, Nephi says his family lived “after the manner of happiness” (2 Nephi 5:27). What does that look like for us, and how can we learn from Nephi and his people’s examples? As we study 2 Nephi 3–5, we can hopefully reaffirm, as Nephi did in his psalm, that despite temptation and conflict, our hearts rejoice—and we can trust in God forever.

In the middle of Lehi’s message to Jacob, we get a small but powerful message that “all things must needs be a compound in one.”

In many ways, 2020 has been full of challenges. But while many of these challenges have been heartbreaking and full of sorrow, some have helped us to become better. Whether it was the outpouring of gratitude on social media after President Nelson's challenge in November or the millions of acts of services that have taken place during this year's Light the World campaign, good things have come out of 2020.

Note: According to the Church's General Handbook, "Baptisms should be performed in a baptismal font if one is available. If there is not a font, a safe body of water may be used. It should be large enough for both the person performing the ordinance and the person being baptized to stand in. Water is not dedicated for baptisms."

With all the heartache, suffering, and devastation going on in the world, it’s easy to wonder why bad things happen to good people. But instead, what if we consider how good people respond when bad things happen? This is the approach we’ll take as we study and learn from 1 Nephi 16–22. Looking at it this way helps us realize challenges can bring us to a place where we’re most likely to meet God. And if bad things happening help us get to know God better, then many of you have met him 100 times over.
Last week, we left off with 1 Nephi 10:17 when Nephi told us he was desirous that he might see, hear, and know of the things in his father’s vision. That’s a big ask—to see, hear, and know. So, what are you desirous to learn? As we go over 1 Nephi 11–15, we’ll explore what Nephi found out and how to apply these things in our lives.
This week, we get to study 1 Nephi 6–10 and focus on Lehi’s dream. If you have read these chapters many times, the Come, Follow Me manual challenges us this time to think about the vision the way Lehi did—within the context of our families and those we love. This approach will help us see symbols like the iron rod, the great and spacious building, and the tree of life in a new light, revealing deeper lessons that apply to our daily lives.
In last October’s general conference, Sister Tamara W. Runia challenged us to “zoom out to view family relationships as a powerful vehicle to teach us the lessons we came here to learn as we turn to the Savior.” Many of us are familiar with the story of Lehi and his family leaving Jerusalem and going back to get the plates. Today, our challenge is to zoom out and view the family relationships in this story, exploring how the lessons in 1 Nephi 1–5 can turn us to God and the Savior.
Christmas is over—did everyone get what they were hoping for? Well, there is one more gift to open. We are told in the introduction to the Book of Mormon that it was given by the “gift and power of God.” Our gift for all of 2024 is the Book of Mormon, and we will accept and unwrap that gift as we spend all year anticipating Jesus.
