During your full-time mission, you knew your purpose. It was laid out for you on page one of Preach My Gospel. You also had a sacred mission call signed by a prophet of God giving you a powerful commission to fulfill a specific mission with a specific set of people in a specific place. This specific calling fueled you through the hardest days of your mission. Even when the most intense storms hit, you kept walking forward because a prophet commissioned you. Now that you are home, you have no returned-missionary mission call and no manual to guide you and tell you a specific assignment that God wants you to accomplish. So when the intense storm hits after the mission and you don't have a letter from a prophet to tell you that God called you to this, where do you find strength to push through? How do you discover what your unique life mission is now? What is your personal mission in life after the mission ends? How do you find it? That is what Live Your Mission is all about. Every single returned missionary has a unique mission to accomplish after their full-time mission. You have a unique life mission. Something that only you can accomplish. Something that only you can create. Something that never existed before. Until you find it, you will be living with uncertainty about why you do what you do everyday. However, once you do find it, everything changes and the world is a better place because you exist. In the last five years around 230,000 young people have come home from a full-time mission (as of October 2015 General Conference). I asked hundreds of these returned missionaries from nearly every mission in the world what they needed most after the mission. What did they say? To discover their life mission. That is why I wrote this book. Twenty-one powerful principles to help you discover and live your unique life mission after your full-time mission.
