New Church Callings

This is more of an informational post for those of you (family and friends) who care, but Denisa and I had a reshuffling of church callings recently. (For those of you who don’t know, in the Mormon faith, people are “called” to a church responsibility that lasts until their next calling.)

For the past 2.5 years, I’ve been the Elder’s Quorum President–essentially in charge of keeping watch over the 20-45 year old men in this neck of the Mormon woods. It’s a big time investment. I usually spent around 5-10 hours on it a week, sometimes more, sometimes less. Denisa’s been the First Counselor in the Stake Young Women’s Presidency–meaning she helped keep watch over the 12-18 year old Mormon girls in northern and central Maine (I’m really oversimplifying this, but oh well.)

She was just called to be the president–so she’s the person in charge of that now. A much greater time commitment. And with that, I was released as Elder’s Quorum President and called as the secretary, instead. (No more making decisions. Just keeping minutes. AOK with me.)

So Denisa’s very very busy, and I’ve been using my freed up time to try and take things off her. Helping clean more, doing the dishes. That sort of thing. It’s been working out okay so far, but I know she’s been stressing about it a fair bit.

She’ll do a great job. Join me in wishing her luck. 🙂
