I’m really starting to feel at home in our ward. It’s fun being married and going to church with other young married people. I like our new ward. At first I thought I would never get to know anyone because it’s so big and so many people are always moving in and out. But progressively things have happened to make me feel more and more at home. I went visiting teaching and had a lot of fun getting to know those girls. I also got a calling as the ward librarian and bulletin specialist. It makes me feel like I have my own little place in the ward. Callings really are a  good way to help people feel included. Michael got one too, the same day, and because we both don’t get enough of our jobs during the work week, he’s now the finance clerk!

And so, the next step, of course, for full inclusion into the world, is giving a talk in Sacrament meeting. Which they asked us to do today. We will be speaking next Sunday. I’m kind of excited. Ever since I got over my fear of doing it the first few times, I’ve really liked speaking in church. I remember even volunteering to do it when I was a teenager. And then, the last time I spoke in church, in my single’s ward, the clock was broken so I had no idea how long I was going and I went way over my time! So next week I’ll be sure to keep a watch. Our topic is family budgeting and fun stuff like that. As usual, the topic assigned is always the one I need to work on the most. So, I’m pretty excited about the opportunity to speak, and next week, we’ll se how it goes.

    It seems a sacrament talk is always more valuable for those who give it and requires us to learn and gain a testimony of the topic. It is a growth opportunity for each of us.

    Those were my first callings in this ward! I loved it and wish I could be librarian again.

    Let me know what you learn. We’ve been married 15 years and are still figuring out the family finances thing. Eek! Glad you like your new ward. Truth be told, I love moving and getting new wards. Always hard to leave people behind, but such an adventure to move on!
