This is a mission prep book for LDS missionaries. I wasn't sure what to expect from
this title and it surprised me with how applicable it was to me and how much I ended
up loving it. You can see all the book info and my full review below...
What to Know Before You To
by Don H. Staheli
Paperback, 160 Pages
August 3rd 2015 by Deseret Book Company
As a former mission president and missionary preparation instructor, author Don H. Staheli is familiar with the questions, concerns, and needs of new missionaries. He also knows that the most eﬀective missionaries are those who have learned how to be a missionary, not just those who have learned how to do missionary work. “The most important elements of good missionary work are the heart and soul of the missionary,” he states. This book provides gospel insights, tips, and inspiration that will give new missionaries conﬁdence in their callings and help them to overcome discouragement, recognize the voice of the Spirit, eliminate distractions, set realistic goals, get up in the morning (even when it’s cold and dark), ﬁnd joy in the work, and prepare to bear a bold testimony of the restored gospel.
Don H. Staheli holds a bachelor's degree in history and master's degrees in international management and social work. He has assisted thousands of people in his work as a licensed psychotherapist and trainer, and is currently a full-time administrator. He is the author of the best-selling children's book The Story of the Walnut Tree. Don and his wife, Cyndy, have five children and six grandchildren and live in Bountiful, Utah.
