The past couple of weeks in our ward have been awesome! I don't think Grant or I realized how hard it is to get to know people and make friends in a married ward. You don't have group FHE, ward prayer, and quite frankly, in a married student ward, everyone just wants to build their marriage and family, which is good, but finding friends takes a while.
However, these past couple weeks have been great! Grant and I have been more outgoing and had our first couples date a few weeks ago. It's also been kind of hard to get involved because we didn't have callings yet, but visiting teaching and home teaching have helped. Today, I was also called to be the RS pianist. I'm grateful for the chance to have this calling again because I haven't been playing the piano as much as I would like to. It'll be a good chance for me to develop that talent again.
Also, Grant and I are giving talks next week--WOO! I know people joke around a lot about giving talks in church, but I actually like it hahaha and I think Grant does too. It'll give us a chance to introduce ourselves and help us get to know more people. It's taken a while, but we're making friends, we're getting involved in the ward, and we're loving every minute of it :) Wards really are something special, and I'm grateful we have the chance to meet and worship together every week.
