alma 48-50

alma 48 - 50
as impressive as the nefarious amalikiah is, moroni is 100x so.

48:7 Now it came to pass that while Amalickiah had thus been obtaining power by fraud and deceit, Moroni, on the other hand, had been preparing the minds of the people to be faithful unto the Lord their God.

17 Yea, verily, verily I say unto you, if all men had been, and were, and ever would be, like unto Moroni, behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken forever; yea, the devil would never have power over the hearts of the children of men.

mormon has spent a lot of time translating, compiling, and protecting these records. is it any wonder that he named his son moroni?
what are moroni's characteristics that make him so powerful? 
what can i do personally to be more like moroni? 
how can i encourage those around me to be more like him?
