Alma 46:38-41 The bulk of these verses talks about the peaceful passing of many with their faith firmly intact. There is an interesting side thought that gives insights into how it was that so many died of just old age. (vs. 41) Verse 40 talks about how because of the “many plants and roots which […]
Alma 46:13-37 Captain Moroni, through very deliberate action against those that sought to alter the free government of the people, was able to maintain peace. He rallied the people to arms. He actively went after those who sought to destroy their government. He saw the disadvantage that it would be to lose the Amalikiahites to […]

(12 Dec 2018) I am impressed by the proactive command that Moroni has taken in defending the Nephites against the Lamanites. (vs. 23-43) I am considering the application of this in my own realms of influence, especially work and family. Freedom only comes in this life, of necessity, through protection from those who would take […]
