Additional Info


Family Studies major, BYU. Artist statement: "This is the Amalekite who was the only one within his tribe who responded to the gospel brought by the sons of Mosiah and Alma. Although he is mentioned only once in Alma 23:14, I know that it would have taken an incredible amount of faith and trust in the Lord to leave, not just his family, but his entire way of life and culture behind. He is a true Book of Mormon hero. For this piece, I used yarn, embroidery thread, and a really nice stick. I loved making this piece and it is a reminder to me that no matter who is standing with you, it's always right to stand in holy places."
