Blog Tour - How Do I Know if I Know?

About the book: "Recently I read John Bytheway’s newest book, How Do I Know If I Know? I enjoyed it immensely; it is excellent—inspiring and extremely informative. As I read the last page my first thought was that I wanted to buy several copies for my children and grandchildren. It is a solid and substantive treatment of how to gain and retain a testimony. In a day when many of our brothers and sisters are wrestling with matters of faith and conviction, I am grateful to Brother Bytheway for writing this book. I predict that it will bless many, many lives, young and old."

-Robert L. Millet

It's spiritual gut-check time! The mission age has been lowered, and now more than ever, young people are asking themselves important questions:
How do I know if I really have a testimony?
Am I ready to serve a mission?
What does the Spirit feel like?
John Bytheway suggests that we "F.E.E.L." the truthfulness of the gospel through our feelings, our experiences, the many evidences we encounter, and our logical conclusions about how a loving God interacts with His children on the earth. Like gradually turning up a dimmer switch, understanding all the ways we F.E.E.L. our testimony will help it grow brighter.

As you read, you may discover that your testimony is stronger than you thought, and you'll also become more excited and motivated to let your light shine!

My review: I read this book last night in about an hour. I didn't want to put it down. I'm not teenager, the obvious target audience of this book, but I was able to learn an awful lot about my own testimony from this book. I LOVE the way John Bytheway rights, his style is easily readable with lots of quotes, and even a few jokes thrown in. I also really like how at the end of each chapter there are QR codes to talks that will shed more light on the subjects, such a great idea in this techie world. This is a great book for teenagers. My husband and I have been talking about how much more teenagers now need a strong testimony than we did when we were teens and this book will be a great help. I can't wait to pass it on to our own teenage daughter!

About the author: JOHN BYTHEWAY served a mission to the Philippines and later graduated from Brigham Young University. He has a master’s degree in religious education and is a part-time instructor at the BYU Salt Lake Center. John is the author of many bestselling books, audio talks, and DVDs, including How to Be an Extraordinary Teen; Life Rocks; and his first children’s picture book, The Sacrament.

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 …
