Kristen Reber is the author of Early Homecoming: A Resource for Early-returned Missionaries, Their Church Leaders, and Family. She is also the host of the podcast Early Homecoming: Insights From Missionaries Who Returned Early. We discuss her love of writing, her mission to the Philippines, the trial of getting a parasite, the decision to come home, her tireless work to help missionaries who come home early, as well as their families, wards, friends, Bishops and more. Kristen is so open and engaging. In addition to her personal experiences, she is very well studied in this area and has incredible insight in this very important part of our church culture.
