Now, I have been given an additional calling- Relief Society teacher. It's only once a month but it made me nervous! I taught for the first time this past week and I was definitely nervous about teaching an adult class. I'm naturally a shy person anyway, and I'm only 23. Many of the women are older than me, have grown kids of their own, and have more life experiences than me. What could I teach them?? I don't want to come across as a know-it-all or claim to think that they have need to learn from me. But what I remembered as I went through the lesson this past week is that teaching the Relief Society is more like guiding a discussion. There are always things in the lesson that might be new to one person or another, including myself, but just being able to contemplate gospel doctrines with other women, and talk about it and share experiences and feelings, is wonderful. I love Relief Society for that reason.
I am grateful for my callings.
