Rotating Callings



This is the remnant of my brief stay in Young Womens. After serving in Primary for 5 years I was very excited to be called to be the Young Women's first counselor a little over 2 months ago. I was able to go to the regional Dance Festival with the girls, visit them at girls camp, try and bond with the inactives and was looking forward to starting the school year with the girls when I was given a new calling....Relief Society President.

I didn't see it coming and it was a little overwhelming at the beginning but now I'm excited. I've got a great presidency and we're in a good ward. I realized right away that it was bigger than I alone can handle so I'm learning quickly how to rely more on the Lord. I'm sure this will be a growing experience for me.

This poster was given to me from the Young Women leaders and girls as a Thank You and a Good Bye. Someday I'll be back (maybe when Ashley is in it). But for now I'm excited to be serving the sisters in Relief Society.
