Yes, you can! In fact, we think it’s a wonderful gift idea, and lots of mothers have made Preserve a Mission books for their loved ones. Begin by creating a Preserve a Mission account, and then there are two ways you can design a book for your missionary:
The best way is to simply ask your returning missionary for their MyLDSMail username and password, and import their messages directly into your Preserve a Mission account. By uploading from your missionary’s MyLDSMail account, you can choose what to include from all of their mission emails and photos. From there, you use your own Preserve a Mission account to edit, design, and customize your book.
Alternatively, you can connect your own email account and import all of the correspondence between you and your missionary. If you decide to use this method, your book will only contain messages that were exchanged between the two of you.
