"And when my brethren saw that I was about to build a ship, they began to murmur against me, saying: Our brother is a fool, for he thinketh that he can build a ship; yea, and he also thinketh that he can cross these great waters." (I Nephi 17:17)

This verse is about how Laman and Lemuel murmur about building a boat. To most people, that scripture might not reach their hearts, but strangely I love that scripture. It teaches me that if I murmur or complain, I will not succeed. If Laman and Lemuel helped Nephi, the boat could have gotten done faster and the boat would have been more precise. So I believe that if I just do stuff I’m supposed to do without complaining, my life will be better. That is how the scripture and The Book of Mormon have helped me.
