New Beginnings and a Whole'lotta Changes!
Many of you know how much I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am firm in my faith, and as a result of the covenants I have made with my Heavenly Father, I know I can be with my family forever. I trust Him to guide me in the direction I should head, and for me, that direction is changing...
I have been released as the Provident Living Specialist in our ward, and--as a result--will no longer be in charge of the group buys, dry-pack canning nights, provident living classes, or other food-related adventures I have so lovingly organized in the past. I have been called to preside over the children in our ward, ages 18 months to 11 years, and their leaders. I am enthralled at the thought of this new endeavor, and grateful to the Lord for entrusting me with such a charge.
Bearing all that in mind, I have decided to pass the torch, and place the Saints for Self-Reliance blog in other hands.
Melissa and Ben Pistorious have been called as the new Provident Living Specialists. They are wonderful people, actively engaged in frugal living and self-reliance, and there is not a doubt in my mind that they are perfect for this assignment. I'm sure you will hear from them soon, but until then, know that you are in good hands and I plan on attending as many Provident Living activities as I can, so I can see them in action!
I love Provident Living. I'm so grateful for the countless friendships that have been established in my life as a direct result of this calling, and I will be eternally indebted for all the ways in which so many of you have come to my rescue and saved my hind end as I scrambled to get my wits about me.
Please don't hesitate to continue to email me with questions. I will still be around and still be very much involved in improving my self-reliance skill set.
Here's to a bright future, and full pantries!
