New Calling

A couple of weeks ago, Ben was called to be the second counselor in the bishopric in our congregation at church. All of the leaders in our church are unpaid volunteers and are called (asked to serve) through inspiration. This does mean I'll be sitting alone with five kids in church from now on, but the blessings that come through service will be worth the sacrifice.

With the new calling, Ben was ordained to be a High Priest. His dad ordained him and gave him a beautiful blessing.

Here's Ben and his dad at Ben's baptism.

We tried to recreate the pose! Funny right?

Happy blogversary!!! I love reading your blog. The picture of ben and his dad made me laugh so hard. Good luck with the new calling. I guess you can always be grateful that at least he wasn't called to be bishop.

Congratulations to Ben on his new calling!! I feel your pain about sitting alone. My husband has been in the bishopric for 2 1/2 years. Although you have 5 and I have only 2. :) The blessings have been numerous and wonderful.
