This coming Sunday is my week to teach in Relief Society. I am teaching the lesson on enduring trials and there are so many examples of how the prophet Joseph Smith was tormented and ridiculed. It is such an emotional lesson to read. I hope I do it justice. Then, the NEXT week I am teaching the gospel doctrine class. Maybe the next week I won't have anything to do!

Yet another talk...
Last Sunday marked the second talk I have given in Sacrament meeting since we moved into the ward. I was asked to speak on general conference and listening to the prophets voice. I chose the story of Deborah and Barak as the basis of my talk. It is wonderful to read stories from the scriptures that illustrate the power of a mother in Israel. I have to tell a funny story on myself though. I had finished my talk and asked Ron to read through it. He asked me if I thought it would last for 15 minutes and I told him I wasn't too worried about it. I figured whoever was speaking last could make up the time if I ran short. Well guess what; I was the last speaker. Lucky for me, our first speaker went over by 5 minutes!
