Blog Tour ~ "Return and Succeed" by Robert R Shallenberger

Rating: 5 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: LDS Non-fiction

Book Description:  The first few years after a mission can be some of the most critical years in a returned missionary’s life. The transition from the mission field to normal life can be difficult, and many RMs get lost in the shuffle and struggle to make that change. Author Robert Shallenberger draws on a lifetime of experience helping youth and adults with motivation and personal development to share powerful tips and advice that will not only help returned missionaries survive the transition but also help them be successful in all aspects of their lives. With advice grounded in LDS standards, Return and Succeed is an invaluable collection of life-changing ideas, habits, and tools that will provide returned missionaries with the motivation and capability they need to stay firm in the faith and achieve their greatest potential.

My thoughts: This book was of interest to me because I had a son return home from a mission two weeks ago.  As a parent. it is my greatest hope that he will remember the things he learned on his mission and incorporate them into his life post-mission.  Many times he has related to me that he doesn't want to be like he was before the mission.  He wants to move forward  having balance and a close relationship with the Lord.

The book is a tool to help return missionaries.  There are many inspirational points that remind one of the importance of living their life staying true to the spiritual aspects learned in a mission.  I found this not only to be of benefit to return missionaries, but to anyone who wants to be inspired to do better.

This book is now in the hands of my son.
