Juliana recently wrote a beautiful post about being a missionary mom and why it is that young men and women (and older men and women, too) choose to serve missions.
Today we wanted to link to another post from a missionary mom, which captures both the sacrifice and the blessings of sending a son or daughter on a mission. Hear thoughts from her son about why he has chosen to leave his family and personal life for two years to serve as a missionary.
Read also this mom’s thoughts on the recent age changes for missionaries in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. (For more on the missionary age changes, see this Mormon Newsroom article.)
