Well it is official I have just been called to be the achievement day leader.
This is the 6th calling in the 4 1/2 years we have been here!
My first calling was teaching the Marriage and family class with Blayne. I REALLY liked this calling. It was interesting to see Blayne teach. We had to work together to get the lessons ready and we talked a lot about the lessons. When the manual was done the class was over.
Then I was called to be the ward activities chairman. This was fun but the Bishop was big on having a activity every month.. really hard.... I survived the fall carnival, Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas fireside. The biggest of the year!
Then I was called to be in the Primary Presidency. I really liked this calling. I felt like I was inspired with some of the sharing times I did. One sharing time that I loved was teaching about the plan of salvation. I closed the dividers in the primary room, which happened to be in thirds.. We stared in the first section and I explained to them about our premortal life and how we made a choice to follow Christ. We then went into the next section which was our earthly life and I explained how we are here to be tested and go through trials.. Then we went into the last section. I had some parents waiting in the last room and explain that when we die we will see our family members who had passed on before us.... It was fun to be with the children and see their excitement of learning the gospel.
Next I was called to be the 2nd counselor in Relief Society....I loved the interaction with the sisters! I loved being with the Presidents I worked with. They both were good examples of what sisters in our church should be! I cried when they released me!
I was then called to scouts..(maybe that's why I cried)...This one I struggled with... I sure wish I could of loved it but it was hard for me....
Now achievement days leader. I do have a different attitude about this... and am excited to work with the cute girls in our ward...
We'll see how long I am in this one....
