Blog Tour - What to Know Before You Go

About the bookAs 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.

My review: This book is written with missionaries in mind, there are stories about missionaries and the book talks about what you would do as a missionary. But this book can really be for each and every one of us. I loved the way that the author wrote this book, it's written in almost a conversational style. I loved that each chapter ends with a story from real life missionaries about how they were able to apply the principle taught in the chapter on their mission. I loved that not only does Don H Staheli teach us how to teach others simply, he is able to do it himself in this book. This is a great resource for all of us to learn to be better missionaries in our every day lives.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the author: 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 or coauthor of several books, including 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.
