NEW CHURCH CALLING

Heavenly Father has decided that it is time for me to take a step out of my comfort zone. For the past couple of years I have always been given callings in church that seemed very easy. I was on the Relief Society Enrichment Committee where we planned 4 activities a year. I was first counselor in a Primary Presidency that was over 3 nursery age kids (18mo to 3 years) and 2 sunbeams (3 to 4 year olds). There were more adults than kids. And my last calling that only lasted for a few months was Achievement Day Leader. (Activities for 8 to 11 year old girls similar to Cub Scouts). My new calling will be Primary pianist. I can play the piano but I have only played a few times with people were singing along. It has also been a while since I have practiced. Not only is my piano at home badly out of tune but every time I do sit down I have two kidos banging at the keys on each side of me. Its hard to tell if I'm playing the song correctly when all I hear is banging from them. On the plus side I am playing for a group of kids and not for adults. Kids won't notice when I mess up. I am thankful for this calling because it is pushing me out of my comfort zone and it gives me a reason, no matter what happens, to practice. I love playing the piano. This will be a fun calling.

MY FAVORITE PRIMARY SONGS ARE: A Child's Prayer; I am a Child of God; I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ; I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints; Scripture Power

That's an awesome calling for you! I know you'll do great. BTW we have the same favorite primary songs. The first ones I remember and loved as a kid but Scripture Power is my new favorite that I learned just a few years back. I love it! It's a huge hit in our primary.

This reminds me, one of my friends just got called to be the relief society pianist every 3rd week. She was so nervous about playing a song that she didn't know that she traded for the lesson that week. I think she's nuts.
