Be careful what you wish for...


Apparently, some one is in need of a little stretching...ok, a LOT of stretching. I just got called to be the primary president. SAY WHAT?!!! Yeah...it came as a shock to me, too. I don't even know what a primary president does. Essentially, I'm responsible for the spiritual well being of 60 kids ages 18 months two 11 years for two hours every Sunday. I've always thought my strength is with the youth...meaning 12-18 year olds. I can't even contain my own crazies. What am I going to do with 60 of them? Luckily, I've got some great women to help me.

Wish me luck. I'm going to need it.

Good luck with that..I am sure that ward is never going to want to release you once they see what a great job you are doing!!!

I am really excited to serve with you again. :) And, I really think you are better with that age group then you think. You are amazing with kids. It may not be your favorite age, but that doesn't change the fact you are good at it. Sorry for the revelation of my lack of experience!! :)

You are going to be amazing. Your kids are also going to love having mom in there and everyone thinking their mom is the most awesome!! You are in for a fun ride. Hey and please remember me if your choister does anything fun and fabulous I want to hear about it :)

THIS is why you were called as a primary teacher in Texas...

You are going to be an AWESOME primary president. Like someone else said... you are better with this age than you think! Have fun!

Cynthia said...

Responsible for their spiritual well being for 2 hours each Sunday?? No, I think you are now responsible for their all-around well being and ultimate eternal salvation. . . . so, good luck with that!
(You will be awesome!)

Wow! You are going to be so much fun with the kids. You are so creative. I was in the presidency once before. All you need to do is learn to delegate! It works great:) I'm glad they gave you a calling:) That was fast too!

We are still missing you:)

When I heard from Abbey that there was going to be a new Primary Presidency called I knew you, Amanda and Autumn were in it...

Congrats and let me know if you ever need anything!

Autumn said...

I'd wish you luck but I really don't think you'll need it. You're going to be superb, truly.
