Life is tough, but so are you! Learn how to work through life's trials with advice from popular youth speakers, including Hank Smith and Al Carraway, who have endured a few challenges of their own. This encouraging book will help you see trials as essential stepping-stones to becoming who you're destined to be.
All of us human beings get down from time to time. The fact is life can be really hard and discouraging sometimes. Throw in adolescence and confusion often reigns supreme. That is where books like this one come into play. This compilation of stories and advice from those who've been there makes for an encouraging read as well as a strong reminder that bad times won't last and there is a way to pull it together and make it through. Trials related to loneliness, physical pain, football, and mistakes all come up in these stories. Stories of hope and faith, of ordinary individuals, and scriptural heroes, all of whom have had to learn to rely on God to help them conquer their tough times. I thought the two versions of the Joseph of Egypt story were interesting. Same story but very different retellings. But the lessons learned are still very powerful and important. I found the book to be very interesting because I love stories about people like me who face tough times with inward and outward struggles but who never give up and with God's help find what they need to truly be able to say, "I've got this!"
I am currently working as a elementary school librarian which I love. I enjoy sharing books on my blogs of which I have two (Geo Librarian and LDS and Lovin' it). I also review for School Library Journal.
