bring it on indeed!

Well, I am now the new primary president for our ward! Shocker...I know! But, truly I am so excited for this new challenge. I was reading some things and I came across this fabulous quote that I just had to share...
“All we ask of you is that in the hearts of these children who come under your watch, care and direction, you will so inspire them that nothing in this world will be dearer to them than the Gospel.” - President Ezra Taft Benson
That is alot of responsability put onto our shoulders isn't it? But I am grateful for the oppurtunity and trust My Heavenly Father has given me to teach his children.
And Boy do I have an awesome bunch of ladies that I get to work with.I don't know how I can fail in this calling with them by my side.
Christopher is in Nursery now, Spencer is in CTR 5 and James is now the Big man on Campus, so I am happy that i Can be in there with them every week. Also I think that whenever you are in a calling you can add your own special touch to things and I think I will be able to help teach these kids to have compassion for others with special needs. There aren't many kids in our ward with Special needs, but the ones that do have such a beautiful Spirit about them it's amazing. And I hope that all these kids will be able to see that in them (And really...they already are so good with them, it's neat to watch).
The one song that I have always loved Long before Christopher was born is "I'll walk with you". Here are the lyrics to the song, makes me cry every time i hear them

"If you don’t walk as most people do,
Some people walk away from you,
But I won’t! I won’t!
If you don’t talk as most people do,
Some people talk and laugh at you,
But I won’t! I won’t!
I’ll walk with you.
I’ll talk with you.
That’s how I’ll show my love for you.
Jesus walked away from none.
He gave his love to ev’ryone.
So I will! I will!
Jesus blessed all he could see,
Then turned and said,
“Come, follow me.”
And I will! I will!
I will! I will!
I’ll walk with you.
I’ll talk with you.
That’s how I’ll show my love for you".
Words: Carol Lynn Pearson

This song means alot more to me now with Christopher! I love it!!!
So here we go...on with new and exciting challenges. I am crazily really looking forward to them. And by the way any of you former Primary Presidents, If you have any advice I would love it!

Proud of you, Boo! Great attitude--the children are very lucky to have you to inspire them! Love you!

Jessica said...

Congratulations! That will be fun!

Kerry said...

Hooray! I have felt kind of clueless in my calling for the past 4 months, so I am looking forward to the start of a new year, new program outline, and new Presidency to work with! Hopefully I will start to feel like I know what I am doing after a while!

You will be fantastic! The primary is so lucky to have you. It will be so fun to be in with 3 of your kids. Now we know why your family was meant to stay in Kansas, Olathe 2nd needs you!

Woohoo! Primary president? Good luck to you. You'll do great! I loved the lyrics to that song. (Did you know Carol Lynn Pearson was in our ward when we lived in Walnut Creek?)

Love, Susanna

P.S. Yesterday as we got in the car, Natalie asked to see James. I told her James was in Kansas. She said, "I see Emily? and Spencer? and Christopher?" Then she said, "Chris says, 'WHAT?!'" This morning she asked me to draw a picture of Uncle Robert. Even Natalie misses you guys!!!

Hi. I saw your post on the special needs page of Mormon Mommy Wars. I also have a son with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. He will be two at the end of February. He is level L5-S1. He is just starting to stand with support and we are hoping to get him in a gait trainer/walker in the next few weeks. His left hip was dislocated and we had surgery on it in August. He was in a hip spica cast for three months and then he broke his femur and was in the same cast again for another three weeks. It has been a long hard road, but we are making progress and it is very exciting. I love to talk to others in my situation. My email is and my blog is I would love to hear about your little guy!
