Grandpa, do you have any starfish?

Go fish!


What’s that sound?

Tornado warning! Everyone downstairs!

… tornado is approaching Clay County …

Isn’t that close to here?

Yes, honey, but we’ll be all right. We’ve been through this before.

Glad we have these supplies down here.

I think we should say a prayer.

Can we read the Book of Mormon together?

Of course!

“The wind did never cease to blow towards the promised land while they were upon the waters.”

So the Jaredites went through a storm too!

Reading the Book of Mormon helps me not feel so afraid.

The next day …

Let’s make sure to thank Heavenly Father that we’re safe. Just like the Jaredites!

Thanks to Eily for sharing your story.
