Description:

Your spiritual self-discovery and accomplishments need not end with the mission. Instead, full-time service should serve as a springboard to greater things.

This book enthusiastically offers sound advice and inspired direction for RMs, their parents, and their families, taking the stress and unnecessary hardships out of the transition to post-mission life. Here, returned missionaries will find clarity as they pursue becoming lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ.
