Taking Off the Tag: A Transition Guide for Returned Missionaries
Taking off your missionary name tag, and all that goes with it, is unlike anything you have ever done before.
With so many changes and important life decisions ahead, you might be thinking, "I wish there was an MTC for life after the mission!"
Regardless of where you served, returning home has its own challenges.
This handbook, written by a former mission president and his wife, with input from more than fifty returned missionaries, is designed specifically to help you and other recently returned elders and sisters move into life beyond full-time missionary service.
Here you will find a variety of suggestions for making a successful transition:
- Dealing with change
- Setting goals and making plans
- Getting an education
- Dating and marriage
- Becoming a full-time disciple
Scripture references, points to remember, and suggested activities will help smooth your transition, whether you just stepped off the plane or have been home for a few transfers.
Great adventures and miracles still await you—the best is yet to come!
"One day when I deeply missed the Spirit that I had felt so often on my mission, I realized that I while I was a returned missionary I was not a released missionary. As I renewed the missionary practices that Clark and Kathleen recommend in this wonderful book, it brought the Spirit back into my life."

This is a great book for Return Missionaries! I have been back from my mission 6 months and my testimony has been strengthen in many different ways of this truth that this book focus on, that the best is yet to come and that we still have a work to do.
