New Calling
« on: June 03, 2019, 12:03:42 am »
After two years as Sunday School President I was released.

Now I am...wait for it...the Self Reliance Specialist, tasked with updating the ward emergency plan (the one I wrote ten years ago) and teaching food storage.  I guess ten years in the calling was not long enough!  I'm back!

Wash, rinse, repeat  8)
Congrats on your new calling. Obviously Father needs your expertise in your ward/stake. Wish you were in my branch!

Congratulations, Mirkwood. You'll do an excellent job in that calling. Again.  8)

I have served as ward clerk three times. I hope I never get that calling again. This is my third time serving as Primary music leader. I'd be overjoyed to have that calling as many times as the Lord calls me.

Man, I'd love to be the primary music leader.  I'm the SS pres right now.  On one hand, it is nice with only needing to be on standby ever other week.  On the other hand, I'm struggling with figuring out how to help families to do the home study side of things. My instructors are indicating about 50% of the families are doing it.

Mirk, any ideas as you leave your post?

Heh.  Exact opposite here.  I've clerked or secretaried for five bishops, just started on my sixth a month or two ago.  If they ever try to release me, I'll just lock myself in the clerk's office.  And they won't be able to do anything about it, because I'll hide all the keys.

My last teacher council was on that topic.  We all discussed what was and was not working, what we were doing etc.

Not that you need advice, but I just saw this and thought it a great idea:https://www.facebook.com/TotallyReady/photos/a.422581157758001/2859912184024874/?type=3&theater

Along with having true shoes next to your bed in case you needed to evacuate in the middle of the night. An earthquake or tornado may leave you in a mess of broken windows and mirrors.

I keep a pair of slip on shoes under the bed for just such a purpose.
