New Calling for Valerie

This might be a weird thing to blog about but this is actually a momentous occasion. I've always had musical callings in church and I've pretty much had them all- primary chorister for about 7 years, primary pianist, church organist, and choir director. Not that I'm complaining, I looooove music. Obviously, I chose it as my profession.

With the wards being re-organized and Reed and I being in a new ward, we had the chance to sit down with our new bishop for tithing settlement. Part of that settlement was him asking us what our ideal callings were. We, of course, said we were willing to do anything. I fully expected to be called as choir director again since I knew there was a need and I had just been called to that position in our old ward. We received a call on Saturday night asking both Reed and I to meet with a member of the bishopric to talk about a new calling for me. Hmmmm... first flag right there. They don't usually talk to the spouse about a choir director calling.

I, of course, said yes when I was extended the call to be the first counselor in the Powell Ward primary presidency. My first non-musical calling in a long time! And the perfect calling for me. I absolutely love serving in the primary and, with sharing times, I'll get to do music also! Did my life just get busier? Yes. But I'm looking forward to serving in our new ward and learning new things along the way.

That just happened to me! We moved into a new ward and I was also fully expecting a music calling because that is what I always get but instead I'm the 1st counselor in the primary. It is the best calling! You'll be great:-)
