Careful What You Wish For

In the words of the rocker 
(who should NOT have been eliminated in the 4th round from the end on AI...or Sanjaya...ridiculous)
Chris Daughtry, 
"Be careful what you wish for cause you just might get it all. You just might get it all." 

A few Sundays ago I was sitting in Relief Society remembering how much more I seemed to get out of the lessons when I was the one teaching them. Just due to the preparation and comments made etc. When I first got called to be a Relief Society teacher, I had just turned 19 and was trying to teach a Relief Society full of returned missionaries. I was more than a little terrified. Wondering what on earth I could teach them after they had all just returned from serving the Lord for 18 months and were SURELY 100% more knowledgeable about every Gospel concept than I was. Well, turns out, I got scared spitless every time I had to teach for the 12 months I had the calling, until the last two times I taught, I decided I really enjoyed it....and BAM! I got released. I knew I should not have admitted to myself I enjoyed it so much. Well, since then I have had numerous other callings in Church and enjoyed them, but sometimes found myself wishing I could just teach one lesson. 

Last week one of the members of the Relief Society Presidency called and asked if I could teach the next Sunday, I told them very sadly that I would be out of town but would absolutely LOVE to teach any other Sunday. This was my chance to just teach once, get it out of my system, and be content with being on the Stake Activities committee. Right?! Psych! Had an interview with the Bishop last week and guess what? Yep, I was called to serve as a Relief Society teacher.

Just sayin' careful. God works in mysterious ways...and will just randomly respond positively to the silent "wishes" slash prayers, you make during Church. :)



I love your blog. Also, I love Chris Daughtry. Even though I didn't watch American Idol that year, I do remember hearing about that Sanjyaya character. Really, Kendra? Come onnn. Haha, I just love you. Can I start coming to your relief society when you teach?! You are like the best teacher everrr. You're going to rock it. I know it. :)
