Any successful missionary wants to learn as much as he/she can before heading out into the field.
Some questions I have heard being asked are:
How do I prepare for a mission?
Where do I start?
What should I focus most on?
How will I know when I am ready?
You probably have asked one or all (or more!) of these questions (if you have more questions, please comment down below!) So let’s talk about them!!! Continue reading
Hey guys, after 18 awesome months, I’m baaaaccck!!
It’s been a whole transfer since I got home from my mission but let’s be real, I’m just getting back into this whole technology thing.
Can I just say (and I’ll say it quickly) it’s true. All of it. THE BEST 18 MONTHS OF LIFE, so far:) But it’s also true they won’t be the only ‘best months’.
So I’ll be posting lots more now that ‘I really know’ (jk, you never really know) and have experienced it for myself. But last week in my YSA ward a couple kids announced their mission calls ( 😀 ) and I offered them some things I learned while on my mission before I started my talk. So here are my
Four Simple Tips for a Great Mission:
Never delay a prompting. Make that decision now or you’ll chicken out in the heat of the moment. No joke.
Write in your journal everyday. Everyday. You’ll regret doing it any other way:)
Expect to baptize. A LOT. No matter where you are. “The field is white” only means one thing. HARVEST.
Finally, don’t just work hard. Learn real growth and consecration. More on that coming soon.
Serving a mission has been the best decision I’ve ever made, (so far:) Nothing is better than being a full-time, consecrated servant of the Lord. And nothing is sweeter than learning that that can happen anytime, anywhere – meaning that once you’re released, it doesn’t end. He calls us all.
Til next time,
Yay!!! I feel like I say that word a lot but, I’m excited!!! Here are 38 pages worth of workouts for you! All are self-explanatory, most are visual, some are motivational sayings/funnies, but they will all help you be your best self on the mission – physically speaking that is. One of my fav sayings is: Sweat for 1 hour or be dead for 24. Seriously, exercise is a very important part of the equation to becoming a stellar missionary. Nuff said.
WORKOUTS – get em here.
YOU MAY cut them out and put them in a lovely little notebook like I did here
and sort them…my categories are 1. upper body, 2. core, 3. lower body, 4. whole body/cardio, & 5. yoga/stretching.
I am so stoked to use these bad boys on the mish. And and and, and then!.. for many more years to come………..
HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!!!

I don’t want to fall off the face of the earth to half my family and friends when I leave on my mission. I want to write them cause, well, that’d be cool. And even though it may be harder, hand written letters are cooler than emails. There, I said it.
But, I’m the type of person that sometimes lacks initiative. And I would like to be as prepared as I can, even if it’s silly.
So, solution to both of these.
You are welcome Robert J. DeBry for the free advertising.
I just took a box of envelopes and addressed them to everyone I want to write while I’m gone (and didn’t even get to everyone yet!) Cause, let’s face it, when you already have a pre-made envelope, it’s just that much easier.
I also took a 3×5 card and wrote birthdays on there so I can remind myself to remind other people when they are another year older. So there are multiple envelopes addressed to the same person.
ALSO, you can print return address labels for those lovely envelopes. Vistaprint offers lots and lots of designs for around $5 (also makes any other kind of sticker you want to make for $3:), or you can make them yourself. Buy Avery labels at Walmart or wherever you want, download a template from here and print them off right at home!!
You know I’ve thought of pretty much everything when it gets down to this.
This whole thing is way too simple to talk about anymore. Tot ziens.
