My sister is Young Women’s president in her ward.  It is very poor and inactive.  She said the reason she was called is because she owns a house and is not as transient as other ward members.  She is short on teachers and a counselor.  When a new person moves into the ward, she has to compete with the Relief Society pres to get a calling filled and RS almost always wins.  She is getting burned out.

Many say the all callings are filled by inspiration, but in her case it seems more desperation-callings remain unfilled due to lack of activity.  And if both the RS and YW presidents have inspiration for the same person, is it really Inspiration or Desperation?
