Dear Scared,

When something scary happens, you can turn to Heavenly Father in prayer, to the scriptures, and to a grown-up you trust. All of these can help you feel peace. Serving others can also help the Holy Ghost bring you peace. Here are a few ideas for serving others. Put your own ideas in the blank spaces!

I see …

I can …

A sick family member

Make them a card or share a talent

A story about a terrorist attack

Pray for the people who were hurt

A natural disaster

Donate to the Church humanitarian fund or other service projects

People who need help in my neighborhood

Plan a service activity with your family. (Go to JustServe.org for ideas.)

Someone being bullied

Walk them away from the bully and tell an adult
