In the Book of Mormon we read about Lehi and his family. Heavenly Father led them to a new home in a choice land. Lehi received a marvelous gift from God: a round ball with two spindles that “pointed the way whither [they] should go” (1 Nephi 16:10). This gift was called the Liahona. Nephi said the Liahona “did work according to [our] faith and diligence and heed” (1 Nephi 16:28). Lehi’s family learned to follow the directions of the Liahona.
We receive a marvelous gift when we are baptized and confirmed. This is the gift of the Holy Ghost. The gift of the Holy Ghost is like the Liahona. We can learn to follow the Holy Ghost. If we follow His promptings, we can return to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again.
