Well I never saw this coming

Ready or not here it comes. Well a few weeks ago Jason received a call from our Bishop he asked if he could bring me down to his office. I thought I was the safe one. To turn out it was for me. I received a new calling and needed to do some praying about it. My Bishop was going to be out of town for a couple of weeks so I was not to say anything. Today came and it was time to receive my new calling. I was set apart today to be the new Relief Society President in our ward. Yes I'm a little stressed ,scared you name it. Never in a million years would I ever think this would happen. I'm excited and I hope and pray I can do a good job. I think the shock is starting to wear off. And after today at church I have a whole list of things to do. I feel like I am blessed with the counselor and sectary I picked. People were so nice today and gave me so many very encouraging words. I received a wonderful blessing from my Bishop when he set me apart and I'm feeling a little less stressed. Any advice, condolences, or help and love would be appreciated.

Heidi, You will be a great Relief Society President. I was one for four and a half years. I loved that calling. Good luck.

You will be amazing!! Your ward will be all the better for having you as their RS Pres. Remember to turn to God, he will direct you, guide you and teach all that you need for this new calling.
I will say extra prayers for you. Miss you guys so much!

And here I thought you were going to have a baby announcement. Not the "baby" I was expecting! No pressure, but I think you're calling had got to be THE toughest one in the church...next to the Bishop of course. You'll be fantastic, though. Look how giving you've been to your blog readers. Maybe this means you won't have as much time to make those cute bows for your give-aways but it will be well spent in other ways! Congrats...and good luck!
