Quiet Dignity

Share Note: This article was meant to be tongue-in-cheek – please read it as such. When you get to the MTC, one of the first things you’ll be taught about is Quiet Dignity. I’d never heard the phrase, and let’s just say it didn’t come naturally to me. Quiet dignity is pretty much exactly what…

Sister Missionary Clothing

Share Now that we’ve gone over whether or not you should serve, let’s talk about how you should dress. For elders, it’s pretty simple – a couple of suits and ties, and some shorts and t-shirts for p-days. If only it were that easy for girls – there’s SO much to think about! When you…

Share This post isn’t for future missionaries, but for their fathers. We were exhausted from a blisteringly hot day of wandering the streets of northern Brazil.

10 Things every Pre-missionary Should Know

Share If you’re going on a mission, your parents, your bishop, and everyone in your ward has already told you how wonderful it is. They’re right, but they tend not to tell you everything. Missions are incredible, but you should have realistic expectations of what you’re going to experience. 1. By “best 2 years” they…
