Joining the Ranks

Sister DeFord?  No, that isn't me.  I'm sure you want my mom.  Or my grandma.  Or my aunt.  Any one of them would be sure to be able to help you.  They are incredible women.  They have made the name DeFord better by joining the family.  They have served in big and little ways for years and years.  They are very talented.  There are many people who can attest to that, including me.  I'm one of the little DeFords, brought into the family by birth, not marriage, and raised by one of the great Sister DeFords.

Soon though, in just a few days, I will be leaving my family to be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  There are many amazing missionaries who are out serving, and others who are now preparing to be the best missionaries they can.  On Sunday I will be set apart as one of them, but I will also be joining the ranks of an equally powerful force, as the newest Sister DeFord.
