Hey RS Teachers!

I am going to make your calling easier!  Well,  Trina is actually!  You’ve got to get this book if you’re in a presidency or if you’re a RS teacher. Trust me!  I was called to be a teacher (that’s a whole story for another day) and my mother-in-law said I had to get this book, because another sis-in-law used it to teach last year and just loved it.  So I get it, use it, love it, and then my other sis-in-law gets called to be a teacher and calls me to find out “what’s this book all about I’m supposed to get?’  Look out other sis-in-law who isn’t a RS teacher… yet!

Make sure to get volume 2, because those are the 2011 lessons and they are incredible!  There are great ideas to use as object lessons (many per lesson so you can choose) and Ensign articles related to the lesson and handouts to copy for each sister.  I could go on and on, but what I really have come to like is Trina herself! 

She signed my book!  At my house!  Ahhhhh!  It’s almost like the “I’m debt free” scream, but maybe not quite as intense, maybe a little more high pitched squealy like.  She is so nice!  I wonder if she coupons?  I’ve got to find that out!  She came over to pick up a ham radio and take our turtle off our hands (thank you!) and she’s so fun to chat with.  I still had pjs on and she totally didn’t care.  Don’t you love people like that?  I did some research. Well I clicked on the find out more about me link on her blog, and she was young mom of the year in CA.  So she totally knows about pajamas-still-on-at-noon days!  It was only 10am actually, but you get the idea!

So pajamas on all day or not, you’ve got to get this book!

Freedom!

A new RS presidency was called today.  I’m NOT in it!  So, now that I have all this spare time I think I’ll get a hobby.   Does Facebook count??  Well congrats and good luck President Curtis!  

As for my next calling- I have no clue!  The VT coordinator is now vacant, the RS secretary is vacant, a counselor in Primary is coming up soon, oh and about a million and one primary worker callings need filled!  There’s a few over with boy scouts.  We have no Activities Committee chair people  since they moved.  So, only time will tell, but I’m not complaining, because I have free time!! So, uh, we can be friends now… I’m not off limits anymore!

Leave a Message and I’ll Call You Back

So the RS president was released today in church.  Not so bad except a new one wasn’t called!!  So normally the counselors are released too, but not this time!!  We’re running the show and got a reminder about oxen and yoke- no one is in the front, they all work together side by side.  We’ve divided up meetings, we’ll be tackling VT routes soon, and hopefully a new presidency will be called sooner rather than later.  Surprisingly I am not nervous like I used to be. 

So if I don’t answer the phone, know that I am screening phone calls  hoping it’s not the Bishop!  =o)  I do hope my next calling is in nursery so I guess I’ll have to answer the phone to get a new calling though!!
