I am an adult convert of 24 years. I am a musician (play in a classic rock band - all LDS members: We are The Beatless http://www.beatless.com). My son joined our band about a year ago. I am pretty much a life-long Beatles fan. Upon becoming a member of the church, I learned the important difference of admiring someone's talent and idol worshiping (which I was pretty close to!) I have 4 kids total (3 of them daughters). My oldest daughter 22 is getting married in the L.A. temple this August. My 2nd daughter, 20, is serving a mission in the Utah Salt Lake City South mission. My 17 year old son will be graduating High School in 2 weeks and then plans to leave on a mission in February. Lastly (but not leastly!), is our 10 year old Josie. My wife and I check out Missionary Momma's all the time. We very often end our evenings with "Did you read this story on Missionary Mommas?"
I am a new Missionary Dad. My daughter, who just recently left the MTC for her mission in the Salt Lake City South mission, told us of a Sister Missionary she knew who was shy at giving discussions. She said the only thing the girl wanted to talk about was The Beatles. I laughed at this when I read it, because I am a life-long Beatles fan (of their music anyway). I asked my daughter to tell her friend that St. John & St. Paul tell us to "Spread The Word and you'll be free" and "The Word is Love". She needed to let investigators know that when it comes to Heavenly Father, "he loves them yeah, yeah, yeah, and with a love like that, you know they should be glad". I also told her that Brother George Harrison talked quite clearly about the second coming when he said "Here Comes the Son". Lastly, I told her that it is important she Get Back her will to serve a good mission, Get Back her desire to serve the Lord, and that through our acceptance of Jesus Christ, we would indeed Get Back to where we once belonged. My daughter showed her the letter and it apparently made her day. She wrote me this wonderful letter made out to Brother "All You Need Is" Love. She said my letter made her "Good Day Sunshine", and that after reading the letter she knows she could serve this mission "Eight Days A Week". I guess this has taught me that sometimes you got to talk to people in a language they'll understand. Glad the Sister was into The Beatles and NOT into Justin Beiber!
