Missionaries love to listen to music! It can truly bring the Spirit and encourage us to do the work of the Lord. With that in mind, we asked the missionaries to send in their favorite groups and we would make a list of approved music. It would be wonderful it they all wanted to listen to appropriate music, however, we have found that "appropriate" means different things to different missionaries.

Elder Neal A. Maxwell said, "The symphonic strains of scriptural music can give our lives lilt and tone, a way of tuning our lives by reference to a celestial scale. The melodies are the marching music for the traveler on the strait and narrow way."

If you wish to send your missionary some music, please use these. 
Any songs by these artists are approved.

Nashville Tribute 
Mormon Tabernacle Choir
Classical 100+ years or older
Hilary Weeks
Kari Jobe (no revised editions)
Lauren Daigle
I Am They
Jenny Phillips

Just a reminder; iPods, MP3 players, and anything that requires earphones are not allowed (per the White Handbook).

If there are any questions, please feel free to call, email, or text.
We love your sons and daughters, they are like our own! We thank you for sharing them with us for a short time.
