Blog Tour - Armor Up and Suit Up

Summary from DeseretBook.com: “Take upon you my whole armor that ye may be able to withstand the evil day, having done all, that ye may be able to stand.” —D&C 27:15
These words are as true today as they were back in 1830 when Joseph Smith received them in revelation — almost more so as today’s youth face the growing challenges of our society. But now in this compact yet powerful book, today’s most beloved youth speakers explain how wearing that spiritual armor can not only help youth face those difficult challenges in life, but also conquer them.

My Review
This book is written by some of the most popular youth speakers there are in the LDS Church. I loved every one of the talks in this book, each one is short, but also very able to teach the youth about the important parts of the Armor of God. I really liked that there are QR codes and links scattered throughout the book. The way the world is going, technology really is becoming everything and especially to the youth! With this book, they are able to connect with the authors and see special videos with youth just like them. If you have the Deseret Bookshelf version, it's all included too! What a wonderful resource!

My Review

This book is written by many of the same authors who wrote Armor Up. The authors who wrote these books are just amazing. They are engaging, and entertaining, but at the same time, they teach the youth the things that they need to know. For this book each of the authors has taken a verse from D&C 4 and they discuss these verses in detail, describing how each one of the verses helps us to prepare for missionary service. I love the way there are links throughout this book to discussions and videos that the kids can watch and learn from. This book is perfect for all of those missionaries, missionaries to be and their parents!

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
