Some things change over time. Parenting doesn't. I could easily mistake Lehi and Sariah for my own parents. Nephi and his brothers were sent out on a seemingly impossible task facing danger and death. The father is proud to have them go out, and has faith that they will come back, and should they not come back, at least they will die in honor and he will be a proud father. Meanwhile Sariah worries about her sons and mourns her loss. Does anyone have any similar mission stories?
No sooner than when they returned home Lehi jumped into the scriptures and read as much as he could in order to learn about where he came from. That is my dad too.
