A book a day...keeps insanity away! I am an avid book reader. When I am not reading, I love to play the piano, sing, or shop until I drop! Reading has been a huge part of my life since I was young and my Mom introduced me to the public library! Since then I have not stopped reading! I hope you enjoy my reviews!
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.
I love the tone of this book. Everything is written by mothers of children who have served missions. It is hopeful and helpful. It is full of positive thoughts that no matter how long you have to prepare your child, you can do it and the Lord will help you to do so! The book is meant as a resource not necessarily a guide and you can take or leave whichever parts are helpful to you as a parent. I love that you can skip around and read whichever chapter appeals to you. Best of all I love that it is written by moms of missionaries!
