susan m, where in hawai’i did you live? we just moved from there!]]>
Whatever size the ward, I feel the need to move a lot. I mean, even if you don’t date all the girls in the ward, you get to the point where you know you need to move on:)]]>
Since I’ve been married, we’ve been in three wards: two small and one large. Callings were never an issue as I received similar natured callings in each. I did notice that the larger one made it difficult to get together.
In the small wards, it’s been easier to get to know people. while our current ward is small, there are still some challenges getting to know people. Since Lethbridge is somewhat of a retirement community, and much of the mature housing is in our ward, we have a high proportion of seniors. The difference in ages presents its own barrier in getting to know people.
By small, I mean we never had to open up the overflow curtains. By large, I mean, we met all the way to the back of the gym. Every Sunday.]]>
