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.

"The Savior teaches that we will have tribulation in the world, but we should "be of good cheer" because He has "overcome the world". His Atonement reaches and is powerful enough not only to pay the price for sin but also to heal every mortal affliction… He knows of our anguish, and He is there for us. Like the good Samaritan in His parable, when He finds us wounded at the wayside, He binds up our wounds and cares for us. Brothers and sisters, the healing power of His Atonement is for you, for us, for all. "
