I have been working on preparing a song to sing in a quartet with three friends at our Relief Society Birthday party dinner.
And preparing with the ladies on my basketball team for our first tournament game.
And preparing to teach the hula to 8-11 year old girls at a "luau" themed daddy daughter dance in Raleigh that my friend is in charge of.
And preparing for a St. Pattie's day dinner party with friends.
Fun! All fun!
But there is definitely something I could use a little help with: Our final preparation of the week will be for a church youth activity on Sunday night that Marcos and I were asked to be part of. We were given the topic of "dating and friends", and our assignment is to prepare a 20 minute informal discussion or presentation that we will share with groups of youth who will rotate through our station. We have already put our heads together and have come up with pieces of what we will share, but I also want to bring in outside voices. I don't know if you will join me in this effort, but I can't help but feel like this is an important opportunity, and I want to get it right.
So, if you feel like sharing, I'll make it easy and ask you to fill in the following sentence: "When I was a teenager, I wish I knew ____". The youth will be ages 12-18, and we are specifically looking for words of wisdom about friendships and dating relationships.
Thank you for helping us to prepare! I feel restrained by our time limits, but I am hopeful that in 20 minutes we can share a few golden nubbies that our youth will take home with them!
