The end of a year of growth and learning . . . What's next?

Each day, I come to class early because Courtney drops me off on her way to work. Well, this morning I forgot that I don't have class until 9:30am. As you can see by the time of my post, I have a little bit of free time. I figured i could blog. I didn't feel any of this was appropriate to put in my last post. So now is a perfect opportunity to share some other things that are going on.

This past Sunday, I was released as Elders' Quorum President. For those of you who may not know what that is, wikipedia does a decent job explaining a little bit about what a quorum is. This opportunity to serve, or calling as we call it, has been  a great learning experience for me as I have tried to seek the Lord's will in how I can strengthen the brothers over whom I served. Serving as president caused me to stretch and grow as I stepped out of my comfort zone and reached out to others in need. It was hard and was very humbling, but I'm thankful for the chance I was given to serve in that position.

Now, for the time being, I'm without a specific calling, or specific opportunity to serve, and will look for other things I can do bless the lives of those in my congregation. However, knowing my Bishop, or Pastor, it will not be long before he has another opportunity for me to serve. 

In other news, school is going well. It keeps me busy. Courtney is still Relief Society President, President over the group of sisters in our congregation, and we enjoy each other whenever we get the free time together. Last night the club that I'm a part of for my Information Systems program had an opening social. It was way fun. They catered dinner and had Comedy Sports as the entertainment. Courtney and I won one of the raffle prizes and also got a free t-shirt. You can't be a free date with entertainment and free stuff. I paid to be in the club but I think I more than made my money back last night.

So, I still have an hour and a half left until class and I'm done with my thoughts for this post. I guess I'll find something more to distract myself with. Until next time.
