She loved the town and the people who lived there. Often Jan thought how wonderful it was to live in a town that was so full of friendly people. One day, Jan’s father came home from work. He told the family that he was changing his job. They would be moving to a larger city. How do you think Jan felt? Jan felt sad and upset each time she thought of moving. It was hard for her to think that soon she was going to leave her friends, home, school, and ward behind. Jan was worried. She wondered if she would have a hard time making new friends. What would her new home and ward be like? No one was able to help her get rid of her worried feelings. Jan decided to pray and ask Heavenly Father for help. Jan prayed with all her heart. As she prayed, something wonderful began to happen. All of the worried and frightened feelings started to go away. Jan felt someone was comforting her. Who do you think was comforting Jan? Jan’s family moved and she made friends and loved her new home. We can all feel the Holy Ghost if we but listen. The first article of faith tells about the Holy Ghost.
