Do you ever feel like leaving your missionary at the MTC is like dropping them into a black hole? Whether you're dropping them at the curb or at the airport headed for another country, it can be a very daunting experience.

What is their schedule like? What do they do all day? What are they eating? Let’s face it. Sometimes missionaries’ emails can be a little lacking in detail.
Whether you're sending a missionary to the MTC, or you already have one there, check out what they're up to while in the MTC. (Note: every missionary’s schedule varies according to classes and language training they need.)
Here’s what you (and your missionary) can expect as daily life in the MTC.
6:30 a.m. – Arise and Prepare: missionaries wake up, get dressed, and head down to the cafeteria.
7:00 a.m. – Breakfast: missionaries get half an hour to eat the most important meal of the day. Depending on the country the MTC is in, they could eat anything from cold cereal, bacon, and eggs to rice, beans, and sausage.
7:35 a.m. – Gym Time: missionaries generally take 30 minutes a day to get their heart rates going keep them in good health. This time at the gym can actually fall anywhere in a missionary’s schedule depending on the facilities and the number of missionaries at the MTC.
8:25 a.m. – Prepare: missionaries shower and change to get ready for the rest of the day.

As Mormons who love Disney, we're excited for some of these upcoming new releases!
Frozen fever ruled 2014--and if you're not convinced, check out the toy section of your nearest big box store. But it's a new year, which means new movies and new chances for something else to hit it big.
Inspired by Creative Bloq's list of 5 New Disney Movies that Could be a Bigger Hit than Frozen, here's our list of Disney releases you'll want to keep an eye on in the next year or two:
1. Frozen Fever
Is it possible for Frozen to be bigger than Frozen?
Everyone’s talking about the newly released stills for Frozen Fever, a seven-minute short that takes us back into the life of Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff. We don’t know much, but from the look of the photos, someone’s having a birthday, and Elsa’s figured out how to conjure up spring as well as winter. Twice the seasonal fun could mean twice the popularity as the original movie.
(Watch the short before Disney's live-action Cinderella, releasing March 13th.)

2. The Incredibles 2
Madilyn Paige tells about her surprising start on 'The Voice' and her recently released album, none of which would have been possible without her faith and reliance on her Heavenly Father.

In fact, prior to the show, Paige suffered from intense stage fright. While most singers dream about the opportunity to perform on TV in front of millions around the world, that possibility sounded more like a nightmare to Paige.
“While I was on The Voice, I especially had to rely on Heavenly Father, because I was completely out of my comfort zone. . . . I had no idea how I was going to make it through the experience and to this day I don’t know how I would have had I not had the Lord on my side helping me through it,” says Paige.
These original puzzles are crafted to enhance your study of the Book of Mormon, whether for personal study, missionary preparation, seminary education, or just plain fun.
