Bring healing to those who are not well.
Keep us ever mindful of your loving presence.
Bless us with your powerful healing … and comfort us also.
Amen

Please read, write and discuss these pages with a grown-up.  You may spread out this assignment over the next two weeks.

You may want to add to your story when you write the next day.  You do not have to write a brand-new story every day.

Do not worry about spelling every word correctly while you are writing.  After you have finished writing your story, you can ask a grown-up to help you edit and revise.

When you are finished with a story, your grown-up can take a picture of it and send it to me through email.  Your grown-up could also take a video of you reading your story … I would love to hear it!
