Reasons Why I Love My Home Ward

Going to my home ward is always an adventure.
Reason #1: My bishopric loves my guts and because they want to show how much they love me, they like to surprise me with a "...and Elisabeth Gee will now give our invocation.."
Talk about a warm welcome.
Reason #2: I love seeing how much it changes. There are so many new families, I can't even keep up with all the new people!
Also, they are a lot of young couples who (I just realized) are practically the same age as me. Weird.
Reason #3: All of the old ladies come up to me and tell me how beautiful I am. If I could just have those ladies follow me around all the time, I'd be a supermodel!
Reason #4: Catching up on high school gossip. I know, it's petty. But really, it's SO interesting to see what's happening in everyone's lives!
Reason #5: Okay, I don't have a reason #5, but I feel like stopping at reason #4 is awkward.


  1. I have 4 friends that are married. Some already planning children. Some that have children...It is truly scary to think that they're as old as I am and sometimes...YOUNGER.

  2. I remember when I was in college and not married, I LOVED going to my home ward for all of these very same reasons :) Nothing is better.

  3. HAHAHA And now Elisabeth will give our opening prayer.... hahaha I love that.
