When professional rugby player William Hopoate and musician David Archuleta put their careers on hold to serve LDS missions, they made headlines. Jabarai Parker, number one high school player in the U.S. is only 17 and his future choice of serving an LDS mission or NBA is already the buzz of the sports world.
We hear of LDS boys and their missions, but all over the world LDS young women are faced with the same choice as well. Today Sistas in Zion will be talking to Melissa Dymock, author of Sisters: A Modern Girl's Guide to Serving a Mission, about her book and Mormon girls serving missions.
Melissa Dymock graduated from Utah State University, majoring in print journalism. She served a mission in West Texas, where she learned how to stay upright on a bike in a windstorm while wearing a skirt. She has been published in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and in the Utah Statesman. You can follow her adventures on her blog.
The Sistas will also be chatting with Kaeli Jensen, a singer with a desire to use her time and talents to help others.
Kaeli Jensen: Dancing and music have been part of her life for as long as she can remember. Her mother tells how she was trying to sing opera when she was three. Kaeli began music lessons at age 6 and it became obvious that singing would be Kaeli’s future. Kaeli loves musical theater and has aspirations to be on Broadway someday. Learn more about Kaeli on her website.
