Do Not Attempt in Heels by Elise Hahl and Jennifer Knight
This new compilation of stories from sister missionaries covers everything from deciding whether a mission is right for you, to adapting to post-mission life. Experience a real look into the sacrifices sisters make, and learn about homesickness, companionship struggles, divine miracles, and the elation of helping save souls in the kingdom of God through the humor and faith of these dedicated sisters.
Take courage as you read about others who have gone and learn how you will change and grow in the Spirit with the many opportunities the mission field will present to you when you choose to serve.
You may knock on doors in Paris, France, or Paris, Missouri. But wherever you serve, do not attempt in heels!

My Review:Do NOT Attempt in Heels: Mission Stories and Advice from Sisters Who’ve Been There
Title is so true. Reading this book brought a bunch of memories back from 85-86 when I served a mission. The timing of this book is off for my family. My youngest got home in Dec. from her mission. It would have been nice a couple of years ago.
Do Not Attempt in Heals is a bunch of essays written by different women who served a mission and a couple that did not go.
When one young woman was trying to decide if she should go or stay home her father said, " You may regret not going, but you will never regret going." So true.
This book is geared toward young woman who are trying to decide if going on a mission is the right choice for them. But I think it can uplift anyone to read these essays that tell a brief glance at one event or lesson learned. Weather it is learning to get along with a companion all the time, or learning service, love for the people, getting answers from prayers, growing stronger or humbling themselves.
These Sister Missionaries served all over the world, in different languages. All learned many things from serving a mission.
I enjoyed reading Do Not Attempt in Heels. Sharing their love of the Savior.
I was given this book to read and asked to give honest opinion about it and be part of its book tour.
