What’s on Your Mind?

Sometimes I worry about my family. How can I feel OK when my family isn’t perfect? —Questioning in Quetzaltenango

Dear Questioning,

Sometimes it might seem like other families are perfect. But every family is different, and they all have challenges.

Maybe there are ways you can help your family. No matter what your family is like, you can try to love and serve them like Jesus would. You can ask teachers and leaders for help and support too. Most important, no matter what you are always part of Heavenly Father’s family. He loves all His children, and He loves you!

You are loved!

Not all families are the same. Here are some pictures of families in the scriptures. Draw your own family portrait in the empty box!

Moses was adopted by Pharaoh’s daughter.

Jesus Christ was the son of Mary and Heavenly Father. Joseph was a wonderful stepdad.

Ruth’s husband died. She took care of her mother-in-law and later got married again.

Lehi and Sariah had a large family. Their children didn’t always get along.
