Note: I know it isn’t appropriate to share “funny” incidents from my interviews with members, but I think this one is fine to share…
So, yesterday was my first full Sunday as a counselor in the Stake Presidency. I was still in my home ward as I am still the YM President. Next week is Mother’s Day, so I’ll be in my home ward that week as well, but then will be travelling around.
Other than my normal duties as YM President, I had my first temple recommend interviews to do. The first one was at Church and it went fine.
The second interview was for my 94-year-old grandmother. She lives in a retirement home. She is bound to a wheelchair (bad knees) and gets a fair amount of help from the staff. If she gets much worse, she’ll probably have to go into a home with more care.
Anyway, I asked the questions, and she answered appropriately. However, we both couldn’t help but smile when I asked her the questions, “Do you live the law of chastity?” She just laughed a little and said, “Oh, I think so!”
