Summary

Al Fox Carraway has spent the last four years inspiring the world with her story of conversion, redemption, and finding faith. As a blogger, social media personality, and award-winning public speaker, her message has reached millions. This moving biography and up-close account of her life and membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (sometimes called the "LDS" or "Mormon" church) will show you what it means to truly trust in the Lord.

"Don't go, Al. You won't fit in."

Being baptized and following the Lord has made Al's life harder than it ever was before. She endured criticism from friends and family for becoming a Mormon. She faced harsh judgments from Church members for her appearance. She gave up everything and felt more alone than she ever had in her life. All because she chose God.

Now she shares an up-close look at how trusting God has led her to places she never expected. As a blogger, YouTuber, and award-winning public speaker, her message has reached millions. Sharing her love of the Savior, Al goes beyond her own conversion and encourages listeners to choose God above anything else. This uplifting audiobook inspires listeners to build a true relationship with the Lord that will bring them real, lasting happiness.

Good for the soul

I am an active member of the LDS church. I am an avid Audible listener and I don’t review books often. I got this book on sale with no knowledge of Al or her story.
I was moved by this book. Al did a great job narrating her own work. She is passionate and that is often felt.
One of the many messages I took away was that if we want to test our faith we can best do that by increasing our faithful actions NOT by being unfaithful. (And if you listened to the 10x rule by Grant Cardone that principal is expressed in a different context- and he is not even LDS-crazy I know).
So congratulations to Al for a book that inspired me to be better, to increase my faithful actions and to trust more fully the God in whom I believe.
I will be sharing this with my family and friends and recommending it. I think it will have a positive influence in their lives.
If you want to surround yourself with good and positive things this should be part of your library.

A beautiful daughter of God testifies.

What a beautiful young woman! I loved every minute of this book. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Al’s testimony thrills me to the core. I will listen to this book again and again and again. I love you Al. Thank you.

Remarkable Young Lady

I first 'met' Al through her videos and blog several years ago. I love(d) her energy and passion for life. I too have felt and endured opinions and judgments of so many who should have known (and we're probably taught) better. The result has been, I suppose like Al, to push me closer in my relationship to my Heavenly Father and to my Savior. If their actions, my actions and my health challenges have resulted in that better and closer relationship... then with a smile and happy heart I'm all in. Thanks Al! God bless in all you do.

An Amazing Book of Sincerity

I loved this book. Al Carraway is so genuine in her message and love for mankind. She moved my heart many times as she spoke of life. I definitely am a bit envious of how her life in 8 years has changed and moved in the direction of more happiness. If you are a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this a must listen. Hearing Al speak about her conversion and the faith is just motivational. If you are not a member of the Church you will feel a strong testimony of a very passionate young woman who deeply cares for others and her Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
