Released and very relieved

Yes, the rumors are true- I've been released from Primary. Some of you may remember my complete freak out when I received my Primary Presidency calling (it was not pretty). I did get a little more comfortable with the calling but it stressed me out every week and I never got over some of the insecurities I had about the calling. So it was a great relief when I received a call from the bishop asking me to come in and meet with a member of the Bishopric. (although waiting an entire week for the appointment was horrible!!!) My new calling is teaching the 12-13 year old Sunday School class. I'm so excited! This is going to be so much better for me emotionally and spiritually (and even physically because it works so much better with my school schedule) I get to team teach with Lyn, which makes the calling even better.

My only issue is that I feel guilty that I'm relieved to be released from Primary. When I got the calling everyone told me I would learn to love my calling and that I would be sad when they released me but that wasn't the case, I was very relieved- does that make me a bad person?

Heck no!

When I was released from nursery, I felt more than relieved. I was in there 2 years. And I really loved the kids, but...it was time.

So for you, the time has come!
Enjoy!!!

Seriously, whoever said that to you must not spend much time around kids.

I am glad you are excited about your new calling and really happy you get to teach with Lyn!

That's cool!

I don't even know what your calling was, but if it gave you grief, I'm glad you're going to be doing something fun!

I am so PUMPED! (I'm ready for a change from primary as well. Tee,hee, giggle, giggle)I'm so excited to study the prophets, and I'm THRILLED to do it with your insight and help!

If we can just get Christopher to shut his mouth for 17 seconds, I think we will have a ball.
