A New Hat



My dear husband has many roles to fill in his life. He is of course, my husband,


our children's father, his parents son, his siblings brother, his neices and nephew's uncle. He is Dr. Weaver at work and Captain Weaver in the National Guard. He now has a new hat to wear, at least temporarily. At church he is now known as President Weaver. Last Sunday he was sustained and set apart as the new branch president of the Talkeetna Alaska Branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. For those of you who are unfamiliar with our church this is similar in some ways to a pastor. (If you are interested in better understanding how our church is organized you can go here or here). Basically he is the one who presides over and has stewarship of our local congregation, although, thankfully, he has two wonderful men who serve with him as his counselors. This is the beginning of a new and I'm sure interesting and busy time in our lives.
