We recently got in a great selection of new missionary books and are so excited to share them with you! These are perfect for any missionary who is about to leave on their mission and for those who have just returned home.
Will My Child Be Ready? by Emily Freedman
A missionary’s training does not begin when he or she enters the doors of the MTC. Well before that, each missionary’s mother can begin laying the groundwork that will prepare her child to diligently and wholeheartedly serve the Lord and His children.
Mothers have an immeasurable influence and a significant responsibility in raising up young men and women who are prepared to do the work of the Lord. The good news: that responsibility can begin wherever you and your child are on the path of preparation. Whether your child is two, eight, or eighteen, this unique resource written by mothers who have sent children on missions (and some who have also served as mission presidents’ wives) will help you build the foundation of faith, endurance, and hard work that every missionary needs.
What To Know Before You Go by Don H. Staheli
Missionaries need to begin their exciting time of service with as much personal preparation as possible. How can they create a spiritual foundation that will help them stand strong when times are difficult? What do they need to know even before they enter the Missionary Training Center?
Each short chapter includes a great tidbit of loving advice and spiritual counsel (the sort you would get if you were sitting across the table from your own mission president), as well as a true, inspirational experience shared by a full-time elder or sister missionary.
The Lord is hastening the work of salvation. He needs missionaries who know not only how to do missionary work but how to be missionaries. This insightful book will help you start off on the right foot as you work to develop the heart, mind, and soul of a missionary.
Missionary: Possible by Eric Rigby
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, starts with you and the scriptures. Learn how ordinary people became extraordinary and how their stories can build your testimony and prepare you for serving the Lord. Funny and full of practical ideas you can use, this book is perfect for teens and young adults as it leads them through the scriptures and solidifies their testimonies and preparedness.
Taking Off The Tag by Clark B. Hinckley
Taking off your missionary name tag, and all that goes with it, is unlike anything you have ever done before. With so many changes and important life decisions ahead, you might be thinking, “I wish there was an MTC for life after the mission!”
Regardless of where you served, returning home has its own challenges.
This handbook, written by a former mission president and his wife, with input from more than fifty returned missionaries, is designed specifically to help you and other recently returned elders and sisters move into life beyond full-time missionary service.
Great adventures and miracles still await you—the best is yet to come!
