New Calling

Just a few weeks before Ammon was born I got a new calling at church.  I'm now the Young Women's President in our ward (congregation) which means I get to hang out with these amazing girls on a weekly basis.  This new calling will take significantly more time than my previous one did, but I'm glad for the opportunity to serve and hope I can somehow help these lovely ladies grow into the women they are meant to be.  When the Bishop issued the call he explained how he was inspired to know that I was the right person for the "job."  He said that no man of his own free will would ask a pregnant woman to take on such a demanding calling.  Poor guy!  I am thankful that he followed the promptings of the Spirit despite his personal concern for me.  I know I'll grow and learn even more than I'll teach in this new adventure.

This was at our "Modest is Hottest" what not to wear fashion show.  It was a really fun night.
