in the interest of keeping everyone updated with what's going on in my life . . . for the past year i've been one of the two gospel doctrine teachers in my ward. i've had this calling before and i was really excited to do it again. i actually LOVE teaching, whether it be in relief society or gospel doctrine. i've been so blessed with this opportunity to study the gospel a little more deeply and i'm amazed by how much clarity and greater understanding i've been given. i've gained such a strong testimony about our heavenly fathers desire to bless us abundantly anytime we put in the least bit of effort. alas . . . i have been given a new calling.
i am now the relief society president.
this just goes to prove that God does, in fact, have a sense of humor.
i'm feeling a little overwhelmed, and perhaps a bit inadequate. everyone who knows me knows that i'm not a girls girl; i've spent most of my life running with the boys. i do enjoy girly things (musicals, romantic movies, makeup, etc.), but i don't respond to situations the way most girls do. i'm not overly emotional. i don't like to talk about things without the intent to solve them. most of the time when i'm dealing with girls i think they're completely irrational, so this calling is definitely outside my comfort zone! but i am looking forward to the opportunity to serve and grow. i'm just praying for a LOT of help!
here's to progression and refinement . . . .
