We need you to share your story!
Project: Weathering the Storms of Life (en español) (em português)
Seeking: Real-life stories of Latter-day Saints, ages 12+, who have been through a “storm of life” and have successfully turned to the Savior and His atonement. These stories should parallel the New Testament account of the Savior calming the storm on the Sea of Galilee. (Please share this notice with anyone who could fill this need. We are seeking stories in Spanish and Portuguese, as well.)

To apply, fill out the Publishing Services Department casting form.
On the form, you will be asked for:
I. Your contact information.
II. A current photo of yourself (It can be a recent snapshot if it has good lighting.)
III. A brief written summary of your story regarding how your faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement has helped you weather a storm in your life. Specifically we are looking for these parallels:

A “storm of life” could be a wide range of things: a crisis of faith, errant children, absent parent, being wrongly accused, a loss of reputation, a challenge to integrity, bullying, losing all material and social supports, surviving a natural disaster, economic challenges, physical challenges, loss of a spouse, or anything that would be considered unusually challenging or difficult.
Selected individuals will be asked to share their stories on camera.
