Please excuse me for this question, but I want to know if I can use a noun as an adjective. For example, I want to say:

"I hold this mission close to my heart for its goodness."

Is this equivalent to saying:

"The mission is good that I hold it close to my heart."

But the latter sentence is not so appealing to me. I like the first sentence, but is it correct? That's my question.

The first sentence is correct. It explains that this mission is deeply important to you, and it explains why (its goodness).

I agree that the second sentence is awkward, and it also does not express the idea well. It would be better usage to say, "The mission is so good that I hold it close to my heart." But even this, though correct, is not phrased as well as the first one.
