On the surface, it appeared to be a typical Sunday in a typical LDS chapel in Phoenix. There were a couple of items, however, that would make it stand out in my mind forever. It was Leap Day 2004 — the day after my 25th birthday – and it was the day my husband was sustained and set apart as a bishop. It was the day I became a bishop’s wife.
When Jeff was called it was made clear that I had also received a call to serve alongside him and sustain him. At the time I had no idea what that would entail or how heavy Jeff’s burdens would sometimes be.
