Book of Mormon Day 80

Day 80: Mormon1-3 Mormon writes at length about the final wars between the Nephites and the Lamanites and about trying to persuade his people to repent, to no avail. It’s interesting to think about how unusual Mormon and his family are during this time when nearly all the people are so wicked. It doesn’t say much about his mother, but his father’s name was also Mormon. He was named after the land of Mormon, where Alma taught and baptized his people. Mormon was given the responsibility to keep the record of the people when he was just 10 years old. He was given responsibility to lead the Nephite armies when he was just 15. He is a bright spot in the darkness. Ch1v15 “And I, being fifteen years of age and being somewhat of a sober mind, therefore I was visited of the Lord, and tasted and knew of the goodness of Jesus.”
