Church Service

I got a new church calling yesterday. I am the Young Womens Camp Director. Camp will be in July. When I told K he said, "Oh, NO!" :) He worries about my sanity and other small stuff. I was the Assistant Camp Director a few summers ago while living in Eagle Mountain. I was also the Young Womens president once upon a time in Hawai'i. I hear we have about ten Young Women in our ward, but they could all be gone by July (our ward consists of apartments, condos, and townhomes--a revolving door)! Still, I feel I need to MEET these young women and get to know them, even if they don't stay long.

Speaking of church callings, my other one is going well. I'm having a blast teaching Gospel Doctrine in the adult Sunday School because you know how it is, the teacher learns the most! I love all of the class members and I'm so happy when they make comments and share perspective. I felt like Brother Haws saved the day yesterday with his comment about how "it doesn't matter" what our lineage is and who we're descended from. We can all partake in the blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

One sister made me chuckle after class. She's a cute, tiny, blonde little ballroom dance student with a husband who also dances (no children yet). She approached me after the lesson and said, "I just wanted to thank you for being a good teacher, because, you know, Sunday School is usually the boring class between meetings that you just have to "get through" and this class is really fun!" High praise, certainly!


  1. That is the highest praise. And you'll be a fabulous camp director. Those girls are going to get a first rate education on the outdoors!

  2. Been there, done that! Except I was 21-24! In Stake YW throughout the 90's, and went to camp!
