Yikes!

I got a phone call this morning. I thought it was the physical therapist telling me that she was running late. Sadly I was mistaken. It was a member of the bishopric asking me to give a talk this Sunday. It has been over four years since I have given one, so I guess I was due. Luckily I am the first adult speaker so I can rush through my talk (like I normally do) and leave a lot of time for the poor sap *cough* I mean the lovely speaker that will be following me.

My topic is Home As a Refuge From The World. If anyone has any great stories, scriptures or quotes from the General Authorities please feel free to tell me about them (please I am begging). I have a feeling that I will not get as much research time as I did last time I spoke which was before I had kiddos.

I love speaking in church, and I've only gotten to do it twice, and once was just my conversion and baptism story. *grumble* I wish I got to speak more, I love speaking in church. And I'm good at it, I always get scads of compliments when I speak anywhere and church is no exception. *was an officer in Speech and Debate club in HS, when she was good enough she actually won money for speaking*

We were always told that those who need to give talks will give them. I personally love to give talks, but I am not/cannot be active due to Tommy's health issues, so it has been years for me. I will keep you in my prayers that the Spirit will speak to you!

(Oh yeah, did I ever tell you I was LDS too??)
