So, Yeah.

Heather guessed correctly on my last post. I am now the Relief Society President of my ward. Which is a full-time calling on top of a full class load and I'm a little freaked out about doing it all. But I do know the Lord will bless me and that this calling was inspired. I have been really blessed these past few years, even though they were the hardest years of my life and  I know that He watches out for me and that He will provide a way for me to accomplish everything. However, it does mean I will have to dedicate my time to my calling and that I might not have a lot of time for my own personal pursuits. I might not be here as often as I would like, but I do plan on keeping this up as much as possible. I have several more crazy things going on in my life right now, but those stories will have to wait for a bit.

I knew it! You will be so great at it.. you have a calm, real, steady wisdom that will be a big blessing to the girls around you. You can totally do this! Although yikes, you have a lot on your plate. You sound like you have a great attitude though, as usual. Good luck with everything!! You'll have to tell us all about your dramas :)

You'll do a great job, Christen. Hope you still take a little time for yourself now and then! It sure is amazing how our own problems seem to disolve when we are busy serving others - sounds like you are going to have LOTS of those opportunities!!! Wish I could take you out to dinner or something for a break!

Congratulations! The last few years have I have no doubt endowed you with more empathy than 20 wards of sisters could possibly use. You are going to do a great job!
