Change Is Good

To me moving equals change. And I personal believe that change is good. If we don't step outside of our comfort zone, we don't learn and grow.

One Saturday night we received a phone call. The person we spoke with on the phone asked that we arrive at church ten minutes early to meet with Brother Wilcox.

My mind instantly started to race, "I'm getting a calling. Where are they going to have me serve? I hope I end up in Young Womens. I hope I am not called to serve as ...." I tried not to think too much about it, ultimately the Lord knows best where I am needed and what I need in my life at this time.

The next day we arrived at church early and Brother Wilcox asked me and Andy to both step into the bishop's office. He said that things had changed and they were going to extend callings to both of us.

Brother Wilcox asked if I would be willing to serve as the Second Counselor in the Young Womens Presidency. My response was something along the lines of, "I'm excited!" He said he had never had that kind of reaction when he's extended a calling before. I guess most people aren't excited to get a new calling?

Then he asked Andy if he would be willing to teach the 12-13 year old Sunday School class. Of course Andy agreed.

We look forward to working with the youth in our ward. Change is good!
