1st Nephi 2 : 8
And it came to pass that he called the name of the river, Laman, and it emptied into the Red Sea; and the valley was in the borders near the mouth thereof.
By way of a creative object lesson, Dad decided to name the river that ran into the Red Sea. We had grown very accustomed to these bodies of water, being that the valley was nestled in between both, so we were excited that we could finally stop calling it ‘the river’. We were all a little surprised, however, when Dad named it River Laman (everyone knew I was the favorite son.)
