As I mentioned a few posts ago, Jake & I both got new callings! Two members of the Bishopric came over on Wednesday August 8th to extend the callings. I was released as a Visiting Teaching Supervisor (someone who calls to see how the sisters in the ward are doing each month) and as a Nursery worker (someone who watches over the kids ages 18 months to 3 years old for 2 hours each Sunday). I wasn't super torn about being released from being a Visiting Teaching Supervisor - it was a fun calling but I was REALLY sad about getting released from Nursery. I absolutely LOVE my nursery kids and enjoy getting to play with them each week. They have really made me want to have kids - seriously. I ADORE the kids in my nursery class. But my new calling makes it all worth it - I have been called as Secretary in the Relief Society Presidency. GULP. The Relief Society is the organization over the women in the ward and this is a job that requires me to have LOTS of organization skills and to help support women in the ward that are my age. But they have kids, and I don't - and that immediately made me feel like I wouldn't be able to fulfill this calling as well as someone who has kids and can relate to the women better. I know that I was asked to do this calling for a reason and that I will be able to fulfill my responsibilities if I do the best I can because the Lord will do the rest.
