Best laid plans and all...

I had plans. I always have plans. But these were bigger than usual. And lots of them. So many goals for this year. And then I met with the Bishop. And he asked me to be the Young Women's President in our ward. So...considering the time that will be involved in this calling (WHEW!!) I am going to have to take a serious look at what I had planned for the year personally and cull it down a bit.

Our young women are awesome. I heard many of them speak last night at New Beginnings and wow! What great spirits they have. I am excited. And scared to death. I'm great with little people. I know little people. Teenagers?? Not so much. But I'm committed.

And, I just keep reading Ether 12:27: "And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for it they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them."

I'm counting on that last line, for I am feeling pretty weak and humble at the moment.

Wow! Hope that it all goes well for you. I can absolutely understand about relating to children versus teenagers.

I can't think of a better woman to fill this calling. You are a strong, dedicated, capable and loving person. The YW in your ward are so lucky - especially McKelle. Good luck. I'm working in YW as well right now and it's a blast.

Well this fits right in with your 'one word for 2009'! You must have had a premonition. YW President=one big batch of LEARN!

Good luck. It will change you. You'll do great.
