...the new calling is RS pres. It's just opened my eyes to a whole new way of thinking of others and what we can do for eachother. What's been amazing to me is that even when I've never met a sister in the ward, and my assignment is to find her and get her reactivated, I feel kind of excited about that. I wasn't really thrilled about that before, but knocking on random doors trying to find sisters that used to be at that address is kind of exciting once you get over the fear factor.

A couple months ago, I was feeling a little anxious about the lack of direction in my life. I finished up my paralegal program last year, did that stuff to move my career forward in a different direction. But I felt a little like I needed something different. Maybe a move? I didn't know. So I decided I needed a little heavenly help on that front. This is what happens when you really want to know what Heavenly Father wants you to do, you ask and then BAM, something happens. I think someone is up there waiting for you to ask and then a button is pushed and "Whamo" you are given, maybe not exactly what you were hoping it would be, but certainly something that will move you forward. When I felt I needed a little bit of a change in my life, a button was pushed, and a new calling issued that would change up my life quickly and move it in a less selfish direction, amazing how that can happen so fast!
Last night I was feeling that I wasn't doing enough in said calling. I thought about it for a few minutes in my car before a meeting and got an immediate phone call, from my Bish giving me a specific assignment. Again, quick answer, even BEFORE I really asked. I'm coming to realize, that asking is getting, maybe not exactly how I wanted to get it, but certainly GETTING.
