Suit Up is a great read for any perspective missionary, whether they are going to serve a full-time mission or they just want to help spread the gospel! I found many insights into studying the scriptures, sincere prayer, and showing love and serving others. I felt like I could relate to each person who was sharing advice because of their personal experiences. I loved the challenges at the end of each chapter, they were a great way to help prepare now. Suit Up is a wonderful way for anyone to gear up to be a better missionary! Truly inspiring, these authors share great tips towards being the best missionary you can be!
What a wonderful resource for LDS youth preparing for a mission! This book contains seven short articles based on section 4 of the Doctrine and Covenants (a book of scripture in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints also known as the LDS or Mormon church). With the recent announcement allowing youth to go on missions at 18 (young men) and 19 (young women) respectively, preparation is more important than ever. Each article provides straightforward counsel about how to prepare to become a servant of the Lord. While it is directed specifically at young people becoming missionaries it also applies beautifully to all who want to serve the Lord. The book covers topics such as hard work, using the Book of Mormon as a vital tool in the conversion process, acting on righteous desires, and developing faith, hope, and charity. Each article also includes a QR code that takes the reader to short videos demonstrating the topics being discussed as well as brief discussions held by the authors with young people preparing to go on missions. Very informative and helpful, I highly recommend this book for both young people preparing to go on a mission and their parents/leaders. There is also much here of benefit to anyone who wants to become a better servant of the Lord.

Wilcox have come together for another FABULOUS book for teens! This time a focus on preparing for a mission...as the age level has been lowered :)
Elder Holland has said "The Lord needs more missionaries and He needs better prepared missionaries."
This book will help with that! Each author has taken a verse from the 4th section of the Doctrine and Covenants and expounded upon it.
Sprinkled throughout the book are QR codes that will link you to some fun video clips...(if you are like me and don't have a "smart phone" they also give you the long-hand link :)
The following great chapters are in this book:
1. The Lord's Marvelous Work
2. Give It Everything You've Got
3. I'll Be What You Want Me to Be
