Portrait of Sariah from the Book of Mormon
This is Sariah, one of my favorite characters from the Book of Mormon. Well, I should say it’s what I imagine she may have looked like. Her family was commanded by Heavenly Father to leave their home and travel into the wilderness and eventually settle here in America. It’s so neat to read about their struggles and triumphs and about their faith in Heavenly Father. There is a time where even Sariah (who from what I can tell was a very faithful, brave woman) struggled with her faith. It’s encouraging to me to realize that even the strongest among us struggle sometimes and that we all have trials to overcome. I’m so grateful that these people took the time to write about their lives and about the amazing experiences that came to them because they were obedient. I am forever grateful for the Book of Mormon and the strength it brings into my own life.
