Let your anxiety fall away.

Here are Eva’s story and tips!

The morning I went to FSY, I was incredibly nervous.

We parked and said a prayer. I felt my anxiety being pulled away like it was a string. Love and warmth surrounded me. It felt like I was getting a hug from my late grandpa, and I knew that this is where I was supposed to be this week.

I ended up having the best week! I met some of my best friends and had the most fun.

Here are three tips to overcome FSY nerves:

  1. Talk to Heavenly Father about it. He loves you and will be able to help with your nerves.
  2. Act with faith. FSY can be scary because you’re in a new experience with new people. But Heavenly Father can help you relax so the worry doesn’t ruin your experience.
  3. Find a mantra. Whether it’s a scripture, saying, or song lyric, find something that will help you focus on Savior. Whenever you start to feel nervous, say the mantra.

There was never a time at FSY where I felt like I didn’t belong. I felt so loved by my counselors, the people in my company, and my Heavenly Father. I gained a completely different perspective of the gospel and God’s love for me.

Jesus Christ, through FSY, changed my life!
