“Facing Fears,” Friend, Jan. 2007, inside front cover
I used to be very afraid of scary shadows that looked like monsters. I was afraid to stay by myself in my room or in the basement. I fasted and prayed many times. My dad gave me blessings to be courageous and faithful. I remembered the Primary song “Nephi’s Courage” that says: “I will go; I will do the thing the Lord commands.” So with my family’s help I decided to show my faith and face my fears. I went to the basement by myself. Then I went in my room by myself. I felt confident and faithful. My testimony is that Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers. He helped me to overcome my fears.
