This piece received an Honorable Mention in the 2019 Book of Mormon Central Art Contest.
"In 1 Nephi 17, we are reminded of the hardships of the women in Lehi's tribe, and the miraculous truth that God enabled them to care for their children and families, and be strong, "yea, even like unto the men". We know they were able to conceive, birth, feed their babies and children, and we assume they were heavily involved in maintaining camp and preparing for the journey to the Promised Land. They were strong."
