    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!
