Changing Stuff

It's officially Fall.

The leaves are red.

There's a cold nip in the air.

And change is everywhere.

It's so refreshing to know that change is constant.

Life decided to throw some big changes at me lately. I was released from my calling as the Sunbeam teacher in our primary and called to serve as the Young Women Secretary. If that's not change I don't know what is. I've only served in the primary before so having a calling like this is a huge adjustment. I spent a good chunk of my time working on young women's stuff or thinking about how I should be working on young women's stuff (usually the latter). I absolutely love it though. The girls in our ward are amazing and I feel so blessed to have them!

I quit my job at Doug Smith Autoplex back in July. Being a stay at home wife was SO great. Seriously. My house was clean. There was food on the table. I was able to accomplish so many errands during the day. And I still managed to have time to kick back and relax. I loved it. Then life took a curve ball and I had to go back to work. After many weeks of searching I was able to score a job at an Elementary school right by my house. It is- hands down- the best job. I absolutely love it. I'm able to work part time and still make good money. I feel like it is a tender mercy from my Heavenly Father. I'm finally able to work at a job that I can enjoy.

Jack's life hasn't taken much change lately. But he WANTS it to change. So that's pretty much the same right? Although he is writing a sweet NBA blog that is so clever and amazing that you all should check out. and feel free to click on the ads. That's how we pay our bills these days.

Change is constant.

Nothing stays the same.

And I am so thankful for that.

So glad I stole you from the Primary! Let me know if it ever gets too overwhelming.
