Armor Up and Suit Up



"Take upon you my whole armor that ye may be able to withstand the evil day, having done all, that ye may be able to stand." -D&C 27:15 These words are as true today as they were back in 1830 when Joseph Smith received them in revelation-almost more so as today's youth face the growing challenges of our society.

My Thoughts:

I have four boys to prepare for missions, so I get excited whenever I find a new book on missionary prep. I found out a few months ago that my 14yo doesn't share my excitement. He was being a little grumpy about reading our current mission book and I asked him what was wrong. He said, "I hate these missionary books. Please just let me read the scriptures and The Ensign Mom, please don't bring home anymore mission books." My first thought was he needed to change his attitude, but then I realized that the missionary book we were reading felt very condescending and as you all know teenagers don't respond very well to that. You can imagine how thrilled I was when I found Armor Up and Suit Up and my 14yo loved them. They are funny, inspirational, and the boys can relate to them. I really appreciate these missionary books. If you have children preparing to serve a mission, get these books!
