So it seems that God wants me to learn how to teach better. Today I got called as a Relief Society teacher. I’ll be teaching every fourth Sunday.
As the Bishop was talking to me about it, he said, “I have two pieces of counsel for you. One: ask questions.” He expounded on this for a bit and then, “Two: Don’t worry about over-preparing. The brethren have the opposite problem–they need to prepare their lessons better–but sisters tend to over-prepare their lessons, when they don’t really need to.”
Burn, brothers. Burn.
I was talking to Kyle about it after church, and I said, “I always thought bishops were being facetious when they said they liked being in Relief Society better because it was like being in Priesthood except that the lessons were good.”
