We survived our talks today

Page and I spoke in church today. You know you are going to have to speak when you first move in. You want to do well, but something in the back of your head tells you that if you bomb, maybe they will never ask you again. But, alas, you know they are going to despite how bad you do, unless you are preaching false doctrine all the time.... hey that's an idea....

Anyway, our topic was "The Family: A Proclamation to the World". Page got to also speak about us. There were no youth speakers today, so we had the whole program. About 45 minutes! Luckily, Page did a great job covering over 24 years of family history that she shared with the congregation. Once she was finished, I only had about 20 minutes to cover. That was plenty of time to tell a few funny family stories of my own and cover the topic at hand. It was good to get it over. Maybe we will have a lot of new "move ins" and we won't have to speak for awhile.

We do really like our new ward. People are really friendly and seem to be glad we are here.

I am always entertained by people's opening lines to talks...what was yours?
