(Amber Garvin from Provo, Utah served as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as 'Mormons') in the Richmond, Virginia area (Now called the "Virginia Chesapeake Mission"). 'Sister' Missionaries are able to serve at age 19 for a period of 18 months. They leave their homes, families and educational pursuits to love and serve their fellowman, and to teach about how families can be together forever. All are invited to follow her missionary experiences.)

*I have now returned home to Utah and will continue to share the experiences of being a returned missionary. :)

Discretion being used on this blog.... :)

From Amber's Mom:

So, after emailing Amber and getting her feedback - we've decided to keep this blog public - but, just use more discretion as to what is posted.

She wants it to be a place to share some of her experiences with those she loves, as well as perhaps encourage others who may be considering serving a mission.

We don't want to blog about things that others wouldn't want posted, nor do we want this to be a place to share things that are too sacred or private.

So, thanks for your support and ....encouragement.  A blog can be a great tool for good - or used for other purposes.  We hope to be of the former - and also provide a record of this wonderful blessing in her life.
