Blog Tour - When I'm a Missionary

About the book: Lacey and Julian's big brother, Elliott, has just returned from his mission, and they're excited—excited that he's home and excited to learn about how to prepare to be great missionaries themselves. And there's a lot to do—they had no idea how much goes into becoming a good missionary. From dressing the part to talking to people to learning how to clean and cook, Julian and Lacey discover the challenges and the rewards of preparing to serve a mission. Follow their adventures as they learn all about missionary work and what they can do now to become great missionaries when they grow up.

My review: This book is perfect for all those future missionaries out there! I love how when Lacey and Julian's brother gets home, they decide to get prepared for their own missions and they go out of their way to look for ideas and people to tell them the best way to prepare. They learn to read their scriptures, serve and take care of their own clothes. I love that they are both willing to talk to people around them, invite friends to Church and even to talk to kids at school about Jesus. This book is a great resource for kids who want to prepare for future missions and for parents to know just what to teach the kids so that they will be able to be the best missionaries they can be!

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