Dealing With Adversity

Friend July 2017 “Family Night Fun”  Challenging Changes

Do you ever feel worried when things change? The pioneers faced big changes but still found ways to be happy. You can too!

Focus on what won’t change, like Heavenly Father’s love for you.
You might have some feelings you don’t understand. That’s OK! Talk to a parent or write about your feelings in a journal.
Look for the good things that might come from a big change. For example, if you have to change schools, think about the chance to make new friends.
