Inspired by two years


Missionary service is incredible. 
I cannot even imagine what it would be like to dedicate two years of my life like they do. 
No music. No media entertainment. No dating. No seeing family. 
All you do is strengthen your testimony and preach the gospel to those around you. 
I truly think missionaries are amazing. 
The stud in the picture above is my husband when he was a missionary. 
I am so grateful for his service as a missionary and the way it has shaped his life. 
I have had many cousins go on missions. 
I dated guys before they went on missions. 
I missed my brother like crazy while he was on his mission. 
I have written a lot of missionaries. 
I have been to a lot of missionary farewells and homecomings. 
I feed the missionaries dinner when I can. 
I love missionaries. 
I am grateful for the way they inspire me to be better. 
To be more dedicated and devoted to sharing the gospel with those around me. 

Have you ever met any missionaries?
Have you known anyone who has served a mission?

  1. Thanks for posting this I totally agree, I think sometimes we get too used to the idea that missionary work is just expected and forget to take a step back and realize how difficult and amazing it really is!

  2. We fee missionaries breakfast every Sunday morning after church. They love it, they say the only get that kind of breakfast when they come over.

    My son is serving God and the people in Atlanta, Georgia right now. I miss him like crazy. :)

  4. Again, I think we would get along swimmingly - I have pics of my husband doing pretty much the same Zoolander-esque pose from his mission. Gotta love it!

  5. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS POST! because, i am in love with a dear missionary. i was actually just thinking about this yesterday. i can't imagine what james {elder richmond, my cute missionary} is going through. to be so far away from his family and friends. and be put into an environment where you know no one and nothing about the places you are visiting. i think missionaries are brave and amazing for doing what they do. i love them and couldnt be more proud of our church.

    p.s. and yes, your husband is a stud!
