Well, I have three callings and my husband has zero. Yep, you read that right he has zero, okay, I will give the guy some slack. He is going to school full-time as well as working way over full-time, he's salary so they work him to death!!! He was teaching early morning seminary, until he started back to school, and then they released him. I teach the youth sunday school class ages 14-18, I am the Activities Day Girls Leader, and I am on the activities committee! Something for just about every event!
My callings are Ward Family History Consultant and 4th Sunday Relief Society Teacher. I always get so nervous teaching. But everyone seems to like my teaching. I am amazed at how the Lord takes over during a lesson. If I have prepared and done my part, He takes over and directs me what to say and when. I just taught last Sunday and just before I taught He showed me something in the lesson that I needed to emphasize and I understood exactly how to do it in that very second. It was really a testimony builder to me about teaching with the Spirit. It was really cool! I give HIM total credit. It really isn't me doing the teaching at all!
P.S. I get cash back on all my eBay purchases. Do you? I also get cash back from 100s of online retailers. Free to join. Learn About BigCrumbs .
I have two callings I am a primary teacher for CTR5A, 5 boys, its a real interesting teaching experience for me. I am also ward geneology specialist. My husband is primary chorister, his favorite calling...he hopes to never be realeased...
Hi, Janice! What a great question - wish I'd seen it earlier! You'll have to tell us how things went. I've seen some great teachers and one way they keep interest in any venue is to get everyone involved with group activities, looking through the scriptures, quiet thinking or writing moments, etc. The lessons can be really thought-provoking that way. And you're right, how challenging to do this!
I serve as the education counselor in Relief Society, the Family History Director, and as a teacher(as needed). My husband is the executive secretary and also serves as a teacher (as needed). We are in a small Ward and it seems everyone have more than one calling. Wouldn't want it any other way. Love my callings.
My husband and I share 2 joint callings. I am in a student ward and they like to call companionships...even if they aren't married. Its sort of strange, I admit. But, we have a baby now and are moving over to the family ward in a few weeks. I am sort of excited because I like getting new callings...and I hope its not ward historian (again). That was a good calling, but it is hard to know what is important, and what is not.
Just a note to say sometimes LDS get such a bad rap in the community even from so called pentecostals, but I have watched you for quite ahwile now and I have never met more sincere, nicer people than you are, to the point I am have missionaries from you church bringing me out the book of Mormon. My Son will have a FIT he is pentecostal and very against LDS. Why I don't know.
Wow, I loved reading all your posts. I feel I am called to teaching but can't do it yet because I am very new to the LDS. Like 3 weeks.I am doing my lessons and meeting with the Elders weekly. I really enjoy it. I haven't gone to church yet because I have been ill but hopefully will go next week. Any pointers or anything anyone has to tell me to help me along my path would be greately appreciated. I think you are all a truely good and caring group of people. I have been watching the LDS people for ahwile now and your honesty & caring is what brought me in your direction. I am very impressed with you. Please write me as I said I would greatly appreciate any pointers. Thank you, Linda
