Member missionary work often seems intimidating and difficult, but it doesn’t have to be! When Clayton Christensen and his wife, Christine, were newly married, they wanted to be diligent member missionaries.

    Very well written!

    I found this book exhilarating in the way the author presented the topic. He certainly makes it seem easy to be a missionary. I was grateful that some of the "old" ideas of being a missionary were addressed and "put to rest", such as befriending then letting go if someone is not interested. Great read!
