Life changes three
« on: October 12, 2017, 03:25:18 pm »
In a week's time my family and I are moving to Colorado.  We're going to be sad about leaving Wisconsin, but are excited about the move in general.  We've bought a house in Colorado but have yet to sell ours here, which makes me very nervous.  Other than that, I think we're about as prepared as we can be at this point.

My family lives in Boulder which is Northwest of Denver.  Sadly, because of the location of my office, we'll be living in Southeast Denver.  Or more accurately: Southeast of Denver, in a city called Parker.  I've drawn up the borders of the wards in the area and my gosh are they small!  There is a lot higher percentage Mormons where we're moving than where we're coming from.  Good and bad, I guess.  I found the name and phone number of our new Bishop and was going to send him an e-mail to say we're coming, but the Church doesn't seem to list Bishop e-mails anymore.  Despite not being on Facebook or willing to pay any money, it took me about 5 minutes to find out who he is (I think) including pictures of his family... super creepy.  Which I realized when I found this stuff so I decided not to try to contact him through that stuff.  Maybe I'll ask our clerk to move our records preemptively so that I can use the online directory to pull the information.

I've been released as YM counselor and SS teacher for the 16-18yos.  The former is a relief, the latter makes me sad, but I suppose it was going to be hard to do from a different state.  Probably time anyway, I think it's been about 4 years I've had that calling.  Now I just have to worry about what my new calling will be... :)

If anyone wants to buy a really nice, two-bedroom in Wisconsin: let me know!

[ETA: Emily remains the best ever]

LDS.org has a ward locator and that will list the name of the Bishop, along with a phone number. No doubt the number is an office number, but called during the week there would be a good chance of getting someone to answer.

Enjoy your new home! And adventure.

Best wishes on your move, Hobbes – glad to know you might be closer to some of Emily’s grandparents, aunts & uncles, & cousins. 8)

As for your new calling, as you know, Scruffydog has just been called as a bishop, & since RW callings carry over into Nauvoo, maybe he will call you as a counselor. ;)

Don't change your record till you have the phone or address of everyone you want from your old ward!  My husband did that here, not knowing I wanted that info. 
Time for a change.  I am yungmom, but have wanted a new username for some time.

Congratulations, Hobbes.  Back to the Rocky Mountains!  You'll be on the wrong side, but still...
