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.

Couldn’t stop listening

My wife bought Al’s book a few years ago, but I hadn’t read it. I picked it up on audible and couldn’t stop listening! What a fantastic story of faith, courage and change. Thanks for sharing your inspiration!

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.

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.

Love this testimony of conversion.

As a tattooed Mormon convert myself, I love this. Al's story tells it all as it really is. The first meeting with the missionaries, the excitement of being a new member, the stares when people see you as different, the joy of the Temple... This book is amazing, Al if you hadn't written this, I wish I would have. Great narration and story flow on the audiobook as well. Good luck to you Al, Thank you for sharing your story. For all those looking to read this, it is a great look into the life of the not so A typical Mormon. As members of any church we grow and learn the same message but we all start from different beginnings, This story covers what it is like to join the LDS Church and maybe not so much fit the mold. Read it already, you will love it!

Better than I ever thought!

I honestly don't know what I was expecting but it was far beyond what I could've imagined. They way I felt God's love for her and then for ME was undeniable. Thank you Al for listening to those promptings. What a blessong this was to me!

So good

When I first saw the cover I thought it was an anti book. Listened to the sample and bought it right away. It’s so good.

A beautiful Testimony of God

Before reading I didn’t know anything about Al Carroway, and I just remember seeing the book on a bookshelf at deseret book at one time and was intrigued by the title. Hearing about her journey into the church was very faith promoting. Reading this book was like listening to a good friends testimony and conversion story for about 5 hours. It’s a great book and I recommend reading it. Hearing the author read it was especially great as she does an excellent job portraying her story in her own voice. This book will certainly bring the spirit and uplift those who read it.

God are you really there?

I love to hear conversion stories of before and after. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint my whole life? I sometimes tale for granted the blessings and joy I receive each day. Thank you for reminding me to make my Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ first and foremost in my life and to know the love they have for me. I am sorry for the negative feelings you have had to endure but your great example lifts me up and makes me want to try to be more Christ like. Thank you again for lifting all of us to just try and do better than yesterday.

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.
