New Callings

Micah and I were given new callings today in our (recently new) ward. It was interesting because we thought for sure Micah was going to be called to the activities committee since they asked him to help plan the Christmas party, but indeed that did not happen. Instead Micah was called to be the Sunday School teacher of the 15 year olds in our ward. It's kind of funny since Micah wanted any calling other than to be a teacher, but I thought it could happen since he so badly didn't want it. Anyway, he sat in on the class this week to prepare for next week and actually really enjoyed himself so I think all will turn out just fine. I actually think that Micah will do really well teaching teenagers as much as he doesn't think so. As far as my calling... I was called to be the primary teacher for the Valiant 9 year olds. I'm really excited. They said that they thought I would do well as I am already a primary age teacher and have had experience. It should be fun to go back into primary for the lessons as well as sharing time. We're both very excited about our new callings and now feel even more a part of our awesome ward. Let's see how this all goes. :)


  1. you and Micah will be great at your callings! I like primary callings lol. I like kids though. And I think Micah will get along well with the 15yr olds. he has the cool older guy personality, and he can try and help them get chicks.. lol.

  2. How fun! I love being in primary. I would be scared to teach 15 year olds, but I bet Micah is great at it! They probably think he is super cool.

  3. Yeah, it totally helps to feel part of a ward more once you're given a calling. Tell Micah he should try teaching Gospel Doctrine! Yikes!! We've been doing it for almost 2 years now and it still makes me nervous every week. I'm one of the youngest in the class and get to teach all the old people ;) My only other "teaching" calling before that was in the Primary. Of course Darwin loves teaching Gospel Doctrine though. He's Darwin! :)

    Good luck with your new callings! You guys will do great!!
