Who is your favorite BOM character – really?!
I got thinking about this and decided that Laman and Lemuel had to be two of my favorite characters. Not because they were rebels and the problems they caused. They are favorites because they show me that outstanding parent can have wayward kids.
We don’t know about Lehi’s parenting skills – maybe he spanked them too much and spoiled Nephi – maybe he treated all of them the same. What we do know is he was a righteous man (and wife) and they still had problem kids.
They help me to not judge other parents quite so much. Oh and the rebel in me likes to give answers that are a bit off the wall. But they are a good, bad example.
