New Calling for church…

One Sunday around the end of last year the bishopric wanted to talk to Justin and I. They pulled us into one of the offices and asked how things were going. We told them that things were going good, and he thanked me for everything that I had done in the primary. As soon as he said that I was thinking, “NOOOOO! don’t release me; I love primary!” He asked if I would accept a calling in the Young Women’s presidency. I’ll be honest, I laughed at him! Relief Society and Young Women’s is scary for me, but I knew without a doubt that I needed to accept it. I asked who the president was, and it was one of my good friends in the ward, and the 2nd councilor was someone I knew but not as well. I accepted without thinking about it.

The first Sunday was nerve wracking to say the least because I’m not a very social person. I’m very shy so this calling would be very hard for me. Now I’m so grateful that I’m in Young Women’s. It honestly has been a very fun calling. The girls in the ward are so amazing, and they teach me something every time I’m around them. There are times when I feel inadequate for the calling because I know ladies in the ward that would be better qualified, but then “I don’t call the qualified, I qualify the called” comes to mind. After a few months of being in Young Women’s, I love the calling. I love the Young Women and I want the best for them.

I do miss Primary; I’ve always loved teaching in Primary. I’ve loved the little kids that I’ve taught while being in Primary whether it was here in Greybull or Otto.
