comfort zone

Wow things sure have been a whirlwind. My Bishop did not waste anytime getting things going for me. Only three weeks ago were my full blessings restored-This week I became a VT to five sisters and received 2 callings.

I was called to teach Relief Society. I really wanted to say no, for I am young, single and really not sure I have anything to offer the sisters of my ward who are much more experienced than me. However, I was once told by a former Bishop if you are extended a call and worthy you should accept. For there is some reason you are supposed to be there-whether it is for your own growth or for the others you will serve.

I anxiously accepted knowing this call will stretch me out of my comfort zone of sitting on the back row observing what goes on. I know that with the Lord I can do may not be comfortable at first, but with time I know I will come to love and enjoy teaching.

" Is it possible to reclaim a life that through reckless abandon has become so strewn with garbage that it appears that the person is unforgivable? Or what about the one who is making an honest effort but has fallen back into sin so many times that he feels that there is no possible way to break the seemingly endless pattern? Or what about the person who has changed his life but just can't forgive himself?The Atonement of Jesus Christ is available to each of us. His Atonement is infinite. It applies to everyone, even you. It can clean, reclaim, and sanctify even you. That is what infinite means—total, complete, all, forever. "
