The Missionary's Printable RECIPE Edition

Thank you mom

My mother is amazing and already had put together a printable recipe book and had made me a recipe book for college of some of the favorite recipes from the book. I guess organization does run in the genes... 

So this Edition was the easiest to make and has 100% infallible recipes for appetizers and salsa, beef and pork and poultry, breads, breakfast, desserts and cookies, salads and soups, and side dishes. 

All tried and tested by one of the best cooks around and some of the pickiest eaters. 

Hopefully this will help kick start your own recipe book!

The Missionary's Printable HAIR Edtion

First, a big thank you to all my sisters for being so interested in my Exercise Book! I am so glad that one of my favorite projects has become such a favorite with you ladies! 

Next up, you asked for a Hair Edition and so here it is! The Hair Edition of every easy hairstyle on Pinterest and some ideas for days when you maybe have a little more time.

I also included some tutorials of how to do some basic braids just in case you need some help with that, because I am a braid fanatic and might have included a couple extra. ;)

Let me know if there's something you would like me to add or change and I would be happy to incorporate those! Good luck on your missions and let me know if there's anything else I could make to organize our missions for us!

Language Learning

I have been so blessed to have been able to test out a language learning program through the MTC before I left, but before I was blessed with that chance I starting looking for other programs to help me learn Spanish.
Annnd I found this little gem:

This site is for LDS missionaries (you have to have an LDS account to login) and you'll choose whichever language you will be learning and then you can start learning the alphabet and how to pray and how to testify. All in your mission language! Perfecto!

Another huge helper has been the "Spanish for Missionaries" book. I guess you get these when you get to the MTC, but why wait?! You can buy your own at the BYU Bookstore (in person) or also online here.
This is what is should look like:
(Or whatever language you are getting, not necessarily Spanish)

So in our packets it tells us to bring scriptures in our native language. While talking with one sister she suggested bringing the smallest quad I could find in English and then a triple combination in Spanish (or whatever language you're learning).She said that once I got over to Spain I could just go out and buy a little Bible on one of my P-Days and showed me the cutest little vintage Bible she had bought on her mission.

In her words "Every kilo counts." Whatever you can get small, do it! But keep your triple combination in your mission language big because members and investigators will be reading from it!

Study your language everyday! Just read 5 verses in your mission language and 5 verses in your native language!
We can dooo it!

Annnd while I was at it I thought I would add the link to your mission portal, because I am always forgetting the address!

The Missionary's Printable EXERCISE Edition

Welp... I did it! I made my exercise book!
It seems so weird to actually start making the things I want to use for my mission, buuut maybe it's just me.
So, I heard from a few different sisters that the exercise routine gets a bit monotonous, 
thus my Exercise Edition was born.
There's probably a book floating around somewhere with a bunch of exercises, but I don't know where it is so I made my own.
It took long enough to make it and I hope that if this was something you were interested in this will help jump start your project!
Next step: Printing it...

Annnd here's a copy of your own Exercise Edition! Have a wonderful mission! :)
