So, after planning activities at church for years now...I got released today.
I am both happy and sad.
Activities are a lot of work...but it is work that I enjoy it and I feel like, most of the time, I pull off a fairly good activity.
So, it really was sort of a comfort zone for me.
And today I got pulled out of that comfort zone...WAY OUT!
I got called to the Young Women's Program and I will be working with girls 16 to 18.
I find this to be a new and exciting challenge, but a terrifying one as well.
I did not have a good experience in young women...I was baptized at age 16 and never really fit in with the girls at church...and the leaders were awful. The girls at church thought the leaders were the bees knees, but they treated me pretty poorly.
Now, I am the leader! yikes.
I already have a real love for these girls, and I am SUPER excited to be working with them...I just wish it didn't feel so intimidating.
So, I worked hard on my lesson, came up with a really great object lesson, which I also worked really hard on, dressed with care and made my way to church.
Well, there's nothing like walking into church with your skirt tucked into your underwear to shoot your confidence all to heck.
I guess there's no where to go but up. Right?
