Blog Tour - More Than the Tattooed Mormon



About the book: Al Fox Carraway has spent the last four years inspiring the world with her story of conversion, redemption, and finding faith. As a blogger and award-winning public speaker, her message has reached millions. This up-close look at her life will show you what it means to truly trust in the Lord.

My review: I don't know how many blogs most of you follow, but one of my favorites is written by this amazing woman. (Check it out!) I've been excited to read this book ever since I found out that Al Carraway was writing it. She has one of the best styles of writing that I have read. Her style is honest, funny and just plain fun to read. A lot of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints know at least a little bit about how she was converted, just like I did, but I wanted to really know her whole story and that is what she's written about in this book. I love the way that she wrote about her conversion and moving to Utah, meeting her husband. I also love that she writes about loving yourself and knowing that God loves you too. This is probably my favorite non-fiction book that I've read this year! I highly recommend reading this book!

I was able to meet Al Carraway as part of her book tour and I have to say that she was one of my favorite people to meet! She was kind to and interested in each and every person that came to talk to her. And I know that she had pictures taken with almost every person who came to talk to her. I loved the way that she made me feel as though I was a dear friend, even though she had just met me. I'm sure that's how she is when she goes to speak to the groups that she speaks with. Hopefully I'll be able to hear her speak sometime. She is amazing!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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…
