Enrichment!

Yesterday was my first mission for my new church calling. I am on the enrichment committee “mid week activity’s “which means the first Wed. or Thur. of every month my partner and I have to plan a mid week activity for the sisters in my ward. Last night we kicked the new year off with a get to know you game night, we seriously have new families move into our ward every week since homes are being built and finished every week, so there is many new gals in our ward. Anyways, I was nervous sick about planning the fun filled night, but it turned out totally awesome and so fun, I only wish we had more of the new gals to get to know. I am so glad I was called to this calling, it was meant for me at this time, my goal this year is to meet more people and come out of my shy shell, this calling is helping me so much, I always come home like a little kid and tell Scott that I made new friends. Scott said I couldn’t stop smiling last night when I got home.. We have the coolest, youngest ward! If you are in your 30’s you are considered the “ old “ people ( I just had to say that because Scott is going to be 30 next month ) but really the average age is in the 20’s- 30’s.

Hi Kiara. My name is Kamarie Hancock and I believe we are in the same ward. I saw you link on Amanda's website. I was so sad to miss enrichment last night. We ended up doing a family get together with my husbands family. Anyways we just got called to nursery so we may not see everyone so much but hopefully I can make it next time. I agree that we have an awesome ward!!

Nope no kids yet. I am from St. Johns and my husband is from Winslow. I know Molly and Kelsey because I went to Nauvoo for a semester with them. We should for sure all get together. I am up for having and BBQ or anything else. That would be way fun! Let me know when you want to have it and I can bring whatever and help with anything too.

You did great at enrichment! That was seriously so much fun and I was so glad to finally meet and hang out with you. And it was cool to meet everyone else too. We need to get together for dinner or something one night.
And I also agree, we have the coolest ward!

I am glad you have a ward that you like. It makes such a big difference. I would love to have you in my ward here in Provo!

Reed and Kamarie said...

Yes from St. Johns. Come on its not that bad is it??? haha I actually thought I recognized you as well. I did play soccer, basketball, and ran track in high school. What year did you graduate? Maybe we played against eachother?

hey there! the volleyball league I am in is a womens indoor league in Mesa. I first got a team together last fall season and I had so much fun that I just had to do it again even though we are out here now and it is a long drive. =)
Did you play volleyball? We are going to need someone to play with us occasionally if you're interested! Let me know!

amanda.hall said...

k well I will keep you in mind when we need someone to play. we may actually need someone this thursday. i have to talk to one of the girls to find out if she can make it or not. She's pretty sure she can play, but there is a chance she will have to stay late at work. It would be a late game- not till 9:30. Would that maybe work out for you? you could just ride with me. =) what position do you play?
oh and we should convince my hubby to play in a co-ed league and we could get a team together. =) he gets any league he plays in paid for through UOP. THat would be fun to play with them. He just doesn't want to cause he is not very good. =)

amanda.hall said...

haha- i really think you would be fine playing with us. i'm not that great either. the league we are in is recreation- not competitive. =) but that girl can make it so maybe you can play with us another week!

How nice would that be-a young ward! We are considered 'young' on our ward! You should check out www.sugardoodle.net for some ideas with enrichment. They have awesome primary ideas, and I'm pretty sure it has relief society stuff too. Good luck!
