Publisher's 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.

it's a 4 hour long testimony.

it might be what you need, maybe not. A fast and testimony day works fine, too. Best message I got from the book is to keep trying, because things don't just work like you think they will.

I'm amazed at the comfort and peace I feel.

I love this. If you feel overwhelmed, or hopeless, or alone, this book is for you. I am so thankful that I used my last credit, and don't regret it at all. (For book freaks who like to collect series... that's a big deal.) My favorite part was when she went to speak at a girls camp, with a migraine...I burst into tears....( again...) She has such a beautiful way of making you cry GOOD tears. - And she conveys emotion soooo well! I freaking loved it. (I said that already...)

I needed this!

As a lifetime member of the LDS church I struggled because of lots of things I brought on myself but also for a lot of the injustices Al speaks about were done to her BY MEMBERS. I have grown and realized over the years that we all have our demons and have to work them out of us as we lean into a relationship with our Heavenly Father. Listening to Al tell her story and share her love of the Gospel and Jesus Christ has me reignited in a way I HAVE BEEN LACKING. THANK YOU AL FOR LISTENING TO GOD so that soooooo many lives could benefit. Love this book so much and will listen over and over again when I’m struggling with my faith.

This book is for EVERYONE. Tattooed or not!

Al really touched me with this book. I, too, am heavily tattooed and have felt like I wasnt worthy to be in His presence. She put so many fears and worries to rest. I will definitely be feeding my soul with this book again! Thanks Al!

Amazing!

I love Al’s passion and zest for life! Her story is amazing and this book is amazing too! I couldn’t agree more with what she said in her book. Happiness does exist and it starts with God.

Also a Tattooed Mormon

This was an excellent example of how people who are different are treated in the LDS church. But the faith that she had in her savior was stronger than the criticism she faced from its members. Made me reconsider returning to the church.

Blown Away! What an awesome example of being filled w/ the light of Christ.

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED hearing Al’s conversion story. I’ve always been told that I have a great conversion story, but when I hear of the pain and struggles that Al suffered while reaching even harder for ALL of the gifts HEAVENLY FATHER has for us all, I weep. She inspires me to do more. More than anything I felt her love for me and GOD’s love for me & U. Thank U Al! I really hope & pray that I may meet U one day and when I do I hope that I have achieved choosing my HAPPY life. Love U Al!!!

Beautiful.

I have listened to Tattooed Mormon so many times now; it is one of my favourite audiobooks. Al Carraway's story is so beautiful and identifiable. I would recommend this to both members and non-members.
