A Little Bit o' Info

I've had some questions (okay, one) about what my calling is, so here goes...

First, a little background. I mentioned to my first Bishop here in town that I hated getting callings in wards that took me out of Gospel Doctrine classes. So he made me the teacher. 8 years later, the new Bishop told me it was someone else's turn to have fun, so called me to the Ward Mission. 7 years later, they added Primary Pianist to my list, but I had that calling for less than a year.

Now, I have a stake calling, as director of a ward choir at our prison. Which means no more ward callings for a while, because I won't be to all the meetings for my home ward. I have my own ID tag that I wear around my neck, and I get to work with a great bunch of guys. I know they are convicted criminals, but most of them aren't any different from most of the friends I've had over the years--they just got caught doing whatever it was.

I have been (and still am) EXTREMELY excited about this calling. I finally get to work with MEN'S VOICES, after 15 years of teaching teenage girls (and a few boys)! I have also been writing and arranging pieces for them, which has been very fun!
