A stalwart youth who abhors violence and loves the simple life.
Nephi is a multi-talented prodigy...but a 12-year-old one. No one knows that his destiny is to become a legend…least of all him.
As the youngest of four brothers Nephi has to work extra hard to keep up — and the amazing thing is — he does. His remarkable accomplishments are often overlooked because of their simplicity, but it does not change their significance. When his hard work does get overlooked, he makes it a point not to let it get him down.
Nephi does his best to do his part. As the youngest it’s often his job to do menial tasks — washing the dishes, carrying the supplies, or running errands. But his father taught him that even the smallest tasks, when executed well and with diligence, make a powerful, meaningful difference. And Nephi believes his father.
Nephi has spent most of his lifetime in the land of his family’s inheritance. The entire family has been involved with the construction of Lehi’s Estate, a fine manor located in a mountain valley near Hebron. The beautiful home was designed by Lehi and continues to be refined by Sariah and the rest of the family. Nephi helps his mother daily as they terrace the hillside, build gardens and walls, and prepare the estate for lifelong residency.
Circumstance will reveal that little Nephi is mighty strong. The fate of his family — and his people — will one day rest on his small shoulders.
