Before my mission and during my mission I was a huge advocate for sisters serving missions. If a girl told me she was going to leave a boyfriend to serve a mission I supported that decision. In my mind nothing could be better than a mission. If things were truly meant to be between the girl and her boy, it would work out.
It’s weird. Now that I’ve been a missionary my thoughts have actually changed. I loved being a full-time missionary and I know it was part of God’s plan for me. I still smile when people from my mission call me “Hermana Williams.” But now I look forward to the time when I get the eternal titles of “wife” and “mother.”
Chances are you, or someone you know, will eventually face the question of, “Should I stay with my boyfriend or should I serve a mission?”
Luckily for you, you found this article. Now I’m going to give you the exact way to figure out how to choose between a boyfriend and a mission. Are you ready for this?
