I've followed Al Carraway's blog for the past two years, and even though I've looked forward to every post and video, when she shared the news that she was writing a book I was a little worried... Would it just be a collection of her already published blog posts? Would it be something sterilized, something lacking her spirit and wisdom? For those who even remotely feel the same way, I promise this is not the case! Al has been able to write about her conversion and her faith from an even fresher perspective. She is able to share more personal details with the reader, which are used to help keep the spirit close as you read. Even more, the book is split into two parts: "my story" and "your story". In doing so, Al is able to teach by example and inspire us to do as she has done: live fearlessly by faith, never give up, and help build the Kingdom of God here on earth. This is a special story that I would share with my Young Women, my non-member family, and even my friends. You can tell that Al Carraway prayed for guidance during every step of writing his book, and I look forward to reading it again. --Amazon - Jenna Marie
I'm incredibly picky when it comes to my reading material. I can honestly say that not many religious books make the cut but I read Al's book in a matter of 2 days. I've been a member all my life dealing with my own problems and was incredibly touched with the words she had to say. I strongly recommend this book to anyone willing to apply what she has shared. If you're an active member this book is refreshing and will encourage you to do better and help others along your way. If you're struggling with anything, even attending church less than you should- this provides hope and reassures that you are not alone and that this gospel is worth so much. If you're not a member but just curious- read it and hopefully it will spark some interest in you to further seek out information about our church. Great Job Al and keep inspiring! --Amazon - Morgan Vande Sande
This young woman has been tried inside and outside the church but has learned to remain true no matter where the criticism comes. This book reminds me of Tebow's book Shaken which I read not long ago. Both have found trials in their life that took them in directions that wouldn't have chosen on their own but with God's guidance have found treasures they didn't know about. An enjoyable read, expect plenty of religion written in the language of encouragement. --Amazon - Dallas Lauchner
