Just a little background: I have been serving in my home Stake as the Stake Young Women's President now for 2.5 years. I should have blogged about our Stake Girls Camp last year... we took 400 people to camp and only had life flight come once! It was crazy!! Lot of laughs, tears, and sweat! I have served with AMAZING women!! My first round of Counselors/Secretary was Tammy Truman (Tru-woman!!), Gina Belnap, and RaNae Fisher. Holy smokes I love those ladies!! I have learned so much from them and am glad to call us "Eternal Sisters!" I was told I had to release everyone and call a whole new presidency... so now I am serving with Janet Foster and Jennifer Patterson (my secretary is still to come!). We just started, so I am excited to rub shoulders with them. I used to complain that 13 Wards was a bit much to try to keep up with. Now I am kind of sad. They are splitting our Stake on Father's Day. This is a bittersweet feeling for me. Bitter because I love working with so many amazing women and girls; and sweet because I will be able to be closer to those I will serve. It will be interesting to see where they will split Hooper. I feel honored to have served in the Stake when we were gigantic and one. I feel equally honored to serve in the Stake when it is split into two...hope that makes sense!

Anyway, I am going to have banana splits in honor of our Stake being split.
