It's not really the winter blues that are keeping me from posting. I want to update our blog, but we just haven’t been up to that much lately. Dave is studying a lot for the Bar exam. I am working on my master’s project a lot. We are both doing quite a bit to serve in our callings. And that’s about it. The weather is sometimes cold, sometimes warmish. On Sunday the weather was beautiful! It really felt like spring. I don’t think that spring has quite arrived, but by the end of February when Dave has more time I think we’ll have good weather for getting out, hiking again, and maybe biking!
Okay, so the only interesting thing in that paragraph to talk about is my calling. At the end of December I was called to serve in the Relief Society program and released from my calling in the Young Women program. I had mixed emotions about it all. I really loved serving with the young women. They are such sweet girls, and I felt like I was a good influence for many of them. But I haven’t been able to attend Relief Society meetings for 2 years. I know that being in Relief Society will be a good thing for me. On the other hand, I didn’t feel that nervous serving the young women since they looked up to me. I do feel nervous serving the women in the ward, since I don’t feel like I know that much about being in a Relief Society presidency, I haven’t been in Relief Society for a while, and I am so not that crafty. That last thing is something that I need to work on since I am in charge of Enrichment activities for our Relief Society. So this is a good thing because this will be a learning experience for me!
Do any of you who have served in Relief Society presidencies have any ideas or advice for someone who is new to this?
