Overview

Raising ourselves to the bar is no easy task. “Upon hearing the title of our book,” the authors said, “One friend replied, ‘You would probably sell more copies if you called it How to Sneak Under the Bar or Avoid It Completely.’” While directing the work in Chile, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland said on several occasions, “The bar is not an obstacle to get over, but a vision to reach for.” Parents, leaders, and young people must catch that vision.

In this invaluable book for these latter days, Brad Wilcox (former mission president in Santiago, Chile) and his son, Russell (recently returned from his mission in Malaga, Spain), share their combined insights and experiences on themes selected from Preach My Gospel. Brad shares what he and his wife tried to do to prepare Russell before his mission, and Russell shares what did or didn't work for him. Finally, the authors have prepared keys for action — specific suggestions that can be completed for, with, and by young people as they prepare.
