    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.)
