Book of Mormon Day 60

Day 60: Alma56-57 I’m struck again with how different Helaman is as a military commander. He shows such love for his young warriors, and calls them his sons. He doesn’t command absolutely, but asks his sons if they will fight, knowing their inexperience. They rely on God and are miraculously preserved. Ch56v44+ “Therefore, what say ye, my sons, will ye go against them to battle? And now I say unto you, my beloved brother Moroni, that never had I seen so great courage, Nay, not amongst all the Nephites. For as I had ever called them my sons (for they were all of them very young) even so they said unto me: Father, behold our God is with us, and he will not suffer that we should fall; then let us go forth.”
