Hi, Mia. Want to play four square with us?

I don’t really feel like playing right now.


That night …

Sound label: Sniffle (coming from top bunk)

I don’t know why I feel so sad. Maybe a Primary song will help me feel better.

Heavenly Father, are you really there? And do you hear and answer every child’s prayer?

What’s wrong, Mia?

I was sad, but now I feel the Holy Ghost.

What does the Holy Ghost do?

He comforts us. That’s why He’s called the Comforter.

Mom, Dad, guess what? I felt the Holy Ghost! I was sad, and He comforted me.

I’m so glad! Come tell us about it.

The next day …

Hi, Mia. Are you feeling better?

Yes! Can I play with you today?

Yeah! Let’s go.


Thanks to Mia P. for sharing her story!
