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.

"Man has a dual nature; one, related to the earthly or animal life; the other, akin to the divine. Whether a man remains satisfied within what we designate the animal world, satisfied with what the animal world will give him, yielding without effort to the whim of his appetites and passions and slipping farther and farther into the realm of indulgence, or whether, through self-mastery, he rises toward intellectual, moral, and spiritual enjoyments depends upon the kind of choice he makes every day, nay, every hour of his life"
