Project: Weathering the Storms of Life

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.)
