I have complained a lot about being the activity days leader in our ward. After all, I was teaching very disrespectful girls. 8 of them to be exact, after the split last month. Then, during one activity they were so careless that I got so angry I broke down and cried right in front of them. Not one of my best moments. I told Randy about the situation and specific problem girls. I was a wife confiding in my husband, not a chagrined leader complaining to the bishopric counselor (Who happens to be over the primary). Next thing I know, I am released from this calling. But I will have you know, I was more than willing to work through the issues we were dealing with and get the parents involved that needed to be.
Alright, so now I have more issues to deal with. I have TWO new callings. I am a relief society teacher and I am on the enrichment committee. If you know me well, you know that teaching relief society is one of the scariest things I could do. I am terrified actually. I used to go home from church shaking and Randy would ask "Did you make a comment in Relief Society?" and I would say "No, but I thought about making a comment." Thus the shaking. You get the idea. It is scary for me. I was really nervous about teaching sunbeams for goodness sake and those are relatively easy lessons and nobody is paying attention to you. This is going to be difficult for sure. Pray for me, I am going to need it. I have to teach next Sunday on the Atonement. Yikes. I am freaking out!
P.S. If you are reading this and you are, in fact, a teacher. I would ask that you be considerate of children or adults who do not want to participate during a lesson. Please don't call on them thinking it is good for them to "get out of their shell" or whatever. It makes them never want to come back or try and get out of going where possible. Ask for volunteers. If you don't have any volunteers, call on someone you know doesn't mind being put on the spot. Some of them are really scared like me. They will come around eventually if they become more comfortable. but if you push them, I guarantee it will be pushing them away. I know from experience. It isn't funny.
