Angel Momma Project

CHRISTMAS IS COMING! Missionary Mommas need to think like Walmart and the craft stores and get Christmassy EARLY.... especially if your missionary is overseas! We get so excited as we prepare Christmas packages for our missionaries. We want them to feel love from home!!!

It has come to our attention that there are a few of our missionaries that have companions that don't have the same support. Some missionaries are the only member in their family, and some families don't have the means to send packages or even letters to their missionary.

Now, I know what you are thinking...because I am have'n the same thought! And the answer is YES, we CAN help! After checking in with the Mission Dept in SLC, we have come up with a couple ways that MMs can help out!!!





We can donate to the General Mission Fund so that when there is a need, the Church can help. And we can send small packages for the Elders and Sisters on our "Needs Some Love" list. We'll include a few fun items such as CD's, stationery, bookmarks, pens, small treats, etc...

Sooooo....here's the plan...

There are several ways to be a part of this project!

1- Donate funds using the Paypal donation button on the MM Mall, in the pinned post on the FB Group or here on the MM Blog! Click here >>>>



2- Purchase a MM Angel shirt, available at the MM Mall... for each shirt purchased, $1 will go to the General Mission Fund and $1 will go to help put together and ship our packages.




3- Donate to the General Mission Fund by using your tithing slip.



4- Go serve the missionaries on YOUR area. Remember to take pics of your service to share with the group throughout December!



I am only one MM... alone I can only so much... but together as a group, 6500 strong, we can make a huge difference to the 25 missionaries on our list!!!

LET THE HOLIDAYS BEGIN!!! And to help get things started, here are some of our missionaries that are already celebrating... celebrating birthdays and P-Day, that is!!! ;)

Many are Called but Few Can Cook!

We would like to introduce the newest addition to Missionary Mommas Recommend  - Missionary Minded by Erin Malwitz.  She creates the CUTEST aprons, which are perfect for protecting your Elder's suit and your Sister's dress while they cook and clean.  She also has a GREAT cookbook to help any missionary fend for themselves in the kitchen.

Come on over to the
Missionary Momma Mall and take a look!  It's not too soon to start putting together that Christmas package!

I am a stay at home mother of three energetic little girls.  I love making new things whether it’s with fabric, vinyl, wood, paint or paper.
I’m not a Missionary Mom just yet, but our family works with our current missionaries as a ward mission leader, a ward missionary, and three junior ward missionaries.
I’ve been sewing for six years now with one of my first projects being an apron for my husband.  I had some leftover fabric and thought a matching apron for my 18 month old daughter would be adorable.  I quickly fell in love with making aprons for children.

I opened up an Etsy shop at the end of 2009 selling my aprons for children and was excited to hear such positive feedback.  Spending time baking in the kitchen with my own daughters is a messy and enjoyable time for our family. 

When a family friend left on his mission to Ogden, Utah in 2011, our family enjoyed writing our first missionary. We sent him off with two random, but useful gifts: a humorous, homemade cookbook and a collapsible laundry basket.

For Christmas, I thought a custom apron that looked like a white dress shirt and tie would be the perfect gift for our missionary.  We added an embroidered Elder badge and a few extra recipes for his cookbook to complete the package. He wore his apron all the time and loved the cookbook so much that he encouraged us to share it with other missionaries.

A few years later, we set out to publish our Missionary-Minded cookbook entitled Many Are Called, But Few Can Cook which we dedicated to the wonderful missionaries serving around the world: past, present, and future.
