The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a new resource for missionaries: My Plan, an online course designed to help missionaries develop post-mission goals.

The resource was announced in the July 2015 issue of the Ensign magazine and on LDS.org. Beginning in August 2015, LDS missionaries can participate in the online course, which includes eight learning experiences that are designed to be completed before, during and after missionary service.

According to LDS.org, the course is "designed to strengthen returning full-time missionaries" and involves creating post-mission plans to be discussed with the mission president.

"Beginning from the time they receive a mission call, and throughout their service, missionaries will use My Plan to set and achieve goals and consider how a mission can become a spiritual foundation for a righteous, successful life," according to lds.org.
