by | Jun. 09, 2015


The calling of Primary chorister might be one of those under-recognized callings.  It’s not that they are unappreciated, but they often serve humbly and quietly. During my brief time in this calling, I have learned how important this service is and how much work goes into the planning.  I also noticed some surprising experiences and blessings that have changed my view of this calling.

1. Almost anyone can do this calling!

Before this calling, I knew nothing about music. I don’t play an instrument. I can’t read music. I didn’t know how to lead music and I usually sing off-key.  However, I was able to fulfill all of my responsibilities.  I learned to lead music and the children didn’t care that I sang out of tune. I was able to draw upon my creative talents and my rapport I have with children.   When I needed help, there were people willing and ready to support me. I recognized that, like other challenging callings, I had been prepared for this work in unique ways that qualified me…even though I didn’t feel qualified.
