(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. :)

Recommended Reading

A list of reading material that is really great for building up your doctrinal repertoire.   Most can be found at a Deseret Book or Seagull Book or you might check online.

Refuge and Reality by John H. Groberg (great for temple prep)
Following Christ by Stephen E Robinson
Believing Christ by Stephen E Robinson
Return to Virtue by Elaine S. Dalton
God Wants A Powerful People by Sherrie Dew 
Increase in Learning by David A. Bednar
The Miracle of Forgiveness by Spencer W. Kimball
Standing For Something by Gordon B. Hinckley

This list will continue to grow.  There are so many books out there that are filled with great material.
I would also recommend that if somewhere in your family there is a book that has been compiled about one of your ancestors that you read that. 

Also the Missionary Pamphlets are really great to look through if you have a short widow of time to do something.  You can read or download them for free or buy them at the closest Distribution Center.

There are tons of great blogs out there too that have members or missionary experiences.  One that has really made an impact on me is In the Head of Al Fox.  She has a great story.
