Well, I was thinking that as Scott and I headed into the empty nest phase of our lives we would be able to rest and relax after raising kids. Apparently the Lord has a different plan than that. We were are just beginning to enjoy this new chapter in our lives and have the freedom to do whatever we want....whenever we want. As much as we enjoyed cross country meets, dance recitals, and endless baseball games....we really like not having a schedule anymore. Well, this Sunday our lives got a whole lot busier. Scott is the HighPriest group leader so that keeps him hopping.....and I was just called to be the Relief Society President. So.....my quiet carefree days will be changing a bit. I've never been so terrified of a calling in my whole life. The bishop gave me a wonderful blessing when he set me apart. The first thing he blessed me with was the health and strength I would need to do this calling. That was such a comfort to me. I do know that the Lord can sustain us and give us strength that we didn't even now we had. I know that I will have to really rely on my Heavenly Father for guidance in this new calling. I have been blessed with a wonderful presidency that will help not only me but all the sisters in our ward. I have so much to learn from each of these sisters. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve and for the trust that has been placed in me. Keeping busy may turn out to be a realy blessing with Chris gone. Hopefully it will make his time pass much quicker. So here is to the new adventure I'm about to embark on.
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.
