I am also friends with a woman whose husband was the bishop when we moved into the ward, and we talked a little bit about what it’s like to be the bishop’s wife. And I came to this conclusion:
Not too long ago, our bishop announced he was changing jobs, which meant he was moving out of the ward. Which meant that our ward had months to speculate who was going to be the new bishop. And as my husband was the 2nd counselor in the bishopric at the time, I had LOTS of people tell me that their money was on him.
