In 2011 we will be learning about presidents of the church.

For next week (9th Jan) have a look at 1 Nephi 8:5-35. It is all about Lehi's dream. Read it here.

As you read, look for what these things represent and comment below:

A great and spacious building (see 1 Nephi 11:35–36; 12:18),

A path following a river (see 1 Nephi 8:19–22),

A mist of darkness (see 1 Nephi 12:16–17),

An iron rod which led through the mist of darkness (see 1 Nephi 11:24–25),

The tree of life, “whose fruit was desirable to make one happy” (1 Nephi 8:10; see 1 Nephi 11:8–9, 21–24).


  1. The mist of darkness is temptation because it tries to make us loose our way and get us off the straight and narrow path. The iron rod leading through the mist of darkness is the scriptures because if you follow them it leads you to the right place. The great and spacious building are Satan's followers trying to put you off. The tree of life is Jesus Christ because He is our final goal. I'm a bit stuck about what 'a path following a river' represents though! :s

  2. Just reading my scriptures and i read 1 Nephi 21-29 which really helped me with the things about Lehis vision as it is Nephi explaining it to his brethren. i really think this is no coincidence :)
