A New Calling

As I mentioned in a previous entry that there were changes to come in the new year for us as a family and individually. The changes began yesterday at church when I was released from the three callings I was serving in.

I was serving as Cubmaster, 12/13 year old Sunday School and I did our Ward Program every week. I admit when I was called in and told that they wanted to release me I was a bit sad. The Bishop was kind enough to hand me a box of tissues, lol. I really love my callings and the people I get to interact with through them. But I have served in Scouting off and on the past 5 years. I have served as Sunday School teacher for over 2. I suppose the Lord thought it was time for a change. I have been called to work with the Young Women in our church. I would be lying if I told you I had a clue about what this calling entails but I don't. Because we didn't join the church until we were adults, I never went through the youth program. I'm excited and ready to learn and grow more.

I already know the girls since they were all in my Sunday School class, so at least that isn't intimidating. Just not knowing the material is kind of overwhelming since I'm one of those people who like to know what I'm getting into.

So that is the latest change coming from the Albrecht home.

When they released you, I had a strange suspicion that you would get called to YW....a few minutes later...I realized I was right!

The reason I figured you were due for a bit o'time with the girls was not because you needed a break or anything. Actually, I thought that since you do such an amazing job helping to motivate and teach the boys...the girls in the ward need someone like you.

Good luck. i know you will do great things!

I am so excited for you! You will do great with the YW. I got called to be in the YW last fall, I was nervous but now I love it. I see how much fun you have with your boys and I know you will do great with the girls.

Stevie and I just read about your release! He was very sad to hear that you would not be his teacher :( How very lucky for the girls they will have such a great YW leader though!

I LOVE yw. I was recently released from them. Let me know if you need any help with resources for object lessons, handouts, whatever. I have some sites you can visit that are really helpful!
