A new Stake Presidency was announced today at church. This was a real whirlwind of a weekend. We had just returned from a week away in Utah with Jared at Basketball Camp at BYU. We arrived home on Friday afternoon. At 10:30 a.m.on Saturday Ty was scheduled to meet with Elder Hafen. He returned from his interview and hours went by. No phone call. Then around 4:00 p.m. we received a call asking for both he and I to come back to the Stake Center. Elder Cordova and Elder Hafen interviewed me first and then had Ty come in. What a great experience to be in the room with these two men. They were very sincere and thoughtful of our family and our needs. When Ty came into the room with us they said we would like to extend the calling of First Counselor in the Stake Presidency to you. WOW - Was my first thought. This is a big one! Then my thoughts turned to I am so proud of my husband and who he is and what he stands for. He has such a strong, strong testimony of the gospel and the scriptures. He is my rock! I know that this new Presidency will be a great one. They all have many things to bring to the Stake from their various callings.
