In February, I’m studying journeys in the Book of Mormon. As I study each story, I’m asking the following questions:
- What motivated people to leave their homes and travel to unfamiliar places?
- How did they adapt to the changes required by their journeys?
- How did they deal with unexpected obstacles along the way?
- How did they keep themselves and their traveling companions motivated throughout the journey?
- How did they feel and what did they do when they arrived at their destinations?
In particular, I’m interested in learning how these experiences can help me adapt to change and maintain my focus as I work toward my long-term goals.
During the month, I’ll study the following journeys:
- Lehi and his family leave Jerusalem and travel to the promised land (1 Nephi 2-5, 7, 16-18).
- Zeniff leads a group of people from Zarahemla back to the land of Nephi (Omni, Mosiah 9-10).
- Ammon travels to find the people of Zeniff (Mosiah 7-8).
- Limhi leads his people back to Zarahemla (Mosiah 19-22).
- Alma leads his people back to Zarahemla (Mosiah 23-24).
- The people of Ammon move to Jershon (Alma 27).
- Various explorers travel to the north countries (Alma 63, Helaman 3).
- Jared and his family travel to the promised land (Ether 1-6).
