I was called to be a RS teacher.......I am so not a teacher. When I was called, I really questioned the bishops counselor who talked with me....I don't really like adults. And besides that, I am young, single and have no kids. What do I have to offer the sisters of my ward who most are married with kids, or grown kids. There are very few single people in my ward.

I would rather teach kids any day of the week. Anyway, I taught my first lesson last was nerve wracking. Its a good thing there is a podium to hold on to otherwise I may not have made it.

Ironically, for preparing the night before...I really tried to prepare before but no inspiration came to me, until Saturday around 9:00 lesson went well. I received good feedback and compliments. That was reassuring.

I pray as I continue to teach, my confidence will grow, and that I will be able to teach by the spirit and tap into the needs of those I am teaching.
