Well, it finally happened: I got released from my calling as Relief Society Chorister, aka "The Flappy Arm Lady after nearly 4 years!!" (I hope I didn't offend anyone!!) I received a phone call late Saturday night calling me to be a Sunbeam teacher. I know the counselor in the Bishopric who called me personally. I laughed and said, "Nick, you are joking, right?" Nothing really set in until they announced my name over the pulpit: Sunbeam Teacher. Wow....I didn't join the church until I was 13 and I have never had a calling in Primary. I am nervous, but so incredibly excited!
I had my first "round" with the Sunbeams yesterday and loved it! The first thing they told me was my Sunbeams had a lot of "wiggles" but what 3 year old doesn't? I think "wiggly" was the understatement of a lifetime! But I walked out revitilized, like a fresh breath of Gospel Air! It took everything I had to keep from crying most of it. What beautiful, amazing, strong children of God the Sunbeams are!
So here is to learning the songs, staying strong in the Gospel, and loving every waking moment of my new calling! Also, if you have worked with Sunbeams before, I would LOVE your ideas, your input, your advice or whatever you have to offer!
