I was responsible for...

I accomplished...
Spoke in front of entire congregation for 40 mins while teaching.

I learned...
You can't do everything, but you can do something, so do those things with excitement and have fun while doing it.

Advice for others...
Don't think you have failed if you could not get it all done, in the real world there are not due dates and if there are people are much more flexible and understanding, always be honest.
