I had to teach Early morning seminary this morning. I must admit that I murmured as I crawled out of bed at 5:30 this morning. Seminary starts at 6:45. As I was getting ready and complaining about getting up at such an early hour in the morning Scott reminded me that when he had early morning seminary in Moses Lake it started at 6am. So, I tried to put a smile on my face....but it wasn't easy. I wearily entered the seminary building a few minutes before class time. As soon as the kids walked in with smiles on their faces and a "Good Morning Sis. Jackson."....I was already awake and vibrant. Those kids charge my battery. They are such an amazing group of young men and young women. They are eager to learn and be close to their Heavenly Father. I learn so much from them. I thoroughly enjoy teaching. Well, I must get to it again. I have to teach institute at the college at noon today. This afternoon's lessons are on the general conference talks by Pres. Uchtdorf. They were amazing talks. I am so happy the Lord has called him to serve in the first presidency.
I've been married for 25 years and I'm the mother of three beautiful children. They are the joy of my life....and so are the two that have joined our family. I love to spend time with them and follow them in all their activities. I work part time for the church education system as a permanent substitute for seminary and institute. I really love this job. It is so rewarding teaching these young people.
