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?
