i got to meet with sister neill marriott, the second counselor in the YW general presidency. she was super down to earth, helpful, had a darling southern accent and hugged us all immediately when she arrived. we spent an hour and a half talking about concerns we had with the YW and exchanged ideas of how to help them better. i came away feeling really inspired to try some different things and to help the YW be better leaders. when she opened it up for questions, i asked her to talk about her invitation from the general authority to serve for the calling. i always love hearing those stories because it’s such an emotional time. it seems like the general authorities don’t miss a beat and just extend the calling and then you just sit there stunned … they wait for you to get over it and then they start explaining stuff. carrying on with the work of the kingdom! you can deal with your insecurities later, we all have stuff to do! 🙂 and that’s what i love about the Gospel – you just roll up your sleeves wherever you are, and get to work.
