Another New Beginning

As my dad says, "there's no rest for the wicked..... and the righteous don't need any." hopefully I fit on the righteous end, Although some days I feel like I could surely use a good rest. Sooo, back to no rest. We just finished up the Youth Temple Celebration, which ended up spectacular, and I was thinking ok things will settle down now and we can start getting our regular routine in with the girls....etc....when I get a call from my father-in-law, who just happens to be the stake executive secretary. Annnnd long story, short, I'm now going to be in the new Stake Young Women's Presidency as their secretary. Needless to say this will be a new challenge. Lest you think I dread the calling, I must say that I am very excited. The women I'll be working with are incredible and fun. I'm very excited but tomarrow we'll be meeting with the old presidency so after that I may be a bit more overwhelmed. But that is to be expected. It will be a call to challenge, teach and stretch me, as i've never been a secretary before. But as one of my Mission Zone leaders always said, "the church is still true, and the Pope is still catholic" anyway I know we'll be blessed and the Lord will provide.

Isn't it funny how the Lord works to prepare us to work in the kingdom. I am sure you will love the work. Though I have always thought it would be hard to work on the stake level and be a leader of leaders, much eaiser for me to work with the individuals. I just got to watch conference for the first time today and loved what President Monson said about the youth program. You know some body will take notice of a job well done, when the prophet talks about it in conference :) It was inevitable :) Good luck!
