Headed Up North

This time of year always makes me homesick! Homesick for the change of season; the leaves falling, colors changing, and brisk morning air. You just don't see much of that in Arizona, at least where I live. But this past weekend that void was filled! I got to head up north with my Young Women for youth conference and we had a blast.

Back in my day I never enjoyed going to girls camp or youth conference, in fact I HATED it! So you can imagine the fear that struck when they called me to be YW President. I knew I was in some serious trouble and wouldn't be able to make up any more excuses! So as the days got closer for us to head up, the more I began to panic. But once we got up there, I quickly learned it wasn't too bad. I actually enjoyed myself and the rest of the company.
I have the sweetest girls and the most amazing leaders to work with. I learned so much during this past weekend and I will cherish it forever!
One of my favorite parts was the hike. There is just something about being outside(when it's not 110 degrees, chasing a toddler) to soak everything in.
Now lets just pray I don't panic nearly as much when the next overnighter rolls around!

oh Lissa you didn't tell me you got a new calling that is perfect for you. You are so easy to like and Im sure the girls just absolutely love you. They are so lucky.

I'm so jealous!! I got released from YW president in August and I'm still going through withdrawals. It's a huge responsibility, but leaves a huge void when it's gone. Enjoy it while you can! Even the stuff you don't think you'll miss.
