Every Body is Different & Wonderful

Friend August 2019 “Done with Swim Team” Some girls on Ava’s swim team make fun of her body. Ava wants to quit swim tea,  but her mom helps her understand that not all bodies look the same just like temples don’t all look the same, but they are all beautiful, and the important thing is what goes on inside. Her mom also teaches her other important truths, and Ava feels the Holy Ghost telling her that they are true.

Taking Care of Your Body

Friend July 2020 “Lila’s Choice” Lila wanted to always choose the right, so when coffee was put in the milk at school, she decided not to have any milk that day. She was happy to choose the right and take care of the body Heavenly Father gave her.

Gratitude for Your Body

Safety from Abuse

Friend June 2017 “Tickling Trouble”  Lizzie and Max learn that we should respect each other when we don’t want to be touched (including being tickled). We should also say stop if we don’t want to be touched, and tell a parent if someone doesn’t stop when told.

You could use this story to start a conversation about what is appropriate touch, and how it’s OK to stand up for yourself if you are being touched in a way you don’t like or a way you have been taught is wrong. Ensign June 2017
