    Wow, I wish I was this wise when I was 26 years old! Country singer Laura Alaina uses her personal experiences to help show others how to treat yourself well and grow through your hardships. She gives excellent advice about self-talk and reminds us that we sometimes treat ourselves worse than we would ever treat anybody else. She talks about growing through breakups, heartaches, and her father's alcoholism. She shares the tragic death of her stepfather and how she grew even closer to God through Wow, I wish I was this wise when I was 26 years old!

She talks about growing through breakups, heartaches, and her father's alcoholism. She shares the tragic death of her stepfather and how she grew even closer to God through it all. She talks about being yourself and feeling comfortable in your own skin. I loved the chapter where she explains abusive, gaslighting behavior she experienced in a bad relationship and a list of signs to look for so you will know what's happening. This will be really helpful to women of all ages. I would advise everyone to read this book because there are lessons in here for all.

    I really enjoyed learning more about Laurens story and thought that the truths she shared in here were ones that are good for anyone to be reminded of. If you’re a fan of hers you’ll definitely enjoy this book. Favorite Quote: “The hard truth is that if you aren’t happy right now, you won’t be happy when you reach that goal. Because you will still be you… You’ll still have the same insecurities, the same doubts, and be just as hard on yourself.

    Easily the best book I’ve read all year. I can’t put into words how much I needed what Lauren Alaina had to say on each page. As a college girl pursuing performance, I related to Lauren’s story and felt like she was a big sister giving me advice. I totally recommend this book to any girl with big dreams like I have whose story is a lot less than perfect. I closed the book with tools to help me love myself a little more and look to my Creator for hope.

    Written like it's coming from big sister wrapping her arm around your shoulders and leading you towards wisdom and a better way of living, Lauren Alaina is her authentic self throughout this memoir/Christian living book.

If you like Lauren and/or celebrity memoirs, this is a delightful read!

    I wish there were more stories. I really liked Lauren on American Idol and have looked up, read and sang a lot of her songs sing then. When I saw this book I was like should I though? I dont normally read autobiographies or self help books. I don't normally read books about religion. I did but it anyway because I liked the sample I downloaded and I wanted to read more. I liked the way she wrote about her life experiences and sprinkled in some advice. It was not a bible or forcing a religion on an I wish there were more stories.

I do wish she had more stories about all of the things that she has gone through so far in her life.

    Best book I have read in quite a while!! Would recommend to women (and men) of all ages. I think we sometimes look at celebrities and think their lives are full of all sunshine and no rainy days. Lauren quickly explains that is not true and shares situations in her own life that are relatable. I love how she shares unapologetically about how her faith has guided her through both the rough patches as well as the high moments she has experienced. Time well invested!

    Really enjoyed reading this book and it was easy to read. It was interesting to learn more about Lauren's personal story (I watched her on American Idol). The book has lots of good journal prompts at the end of the chapters and has many insightful points to consider when thinking about your own life.

    Inspiring. True. Vulnerable. Lauren Alaina poured her heart into this book. She took her own experiences along with her bubbly and authentic personality and used them to encourage and inspire others who are on this journey of life. This book covered everything from relationships, goals, and God. Truly a great read!

    Lauren writes a great book for anyone who feels like they’re just starting or starting over in their life. I love that she gives real applications to help get you through tough times. This book is raw and real and really good. But honestly I just love Lauren Alaina so much I would have finished this book if it was trash (it wasn’t it’s really good!)

    This is a fabulous book for women of all ages! She reminds us of things that we all know (or should know) but have a tendency to forget or not do. I love that she starts by telling us to be the best friend to ourselves...if we wouldn't say something to our best friend, why do we say it to ourselves? Such good lessons to hear!

    I liked the book but definitely felt like she reads it really fast sometimes which is her personality. I enjoyed listening to her stories and sharing her path to faith but also felt like she regurgitated some of the same information throughout the chapters. I appreciated hearing her story and rise to fame.

    I have always been a fan of Lauren Alaina, so to me, this book was a great listen! I really appreciated her honest and open dialogue surrounding her relationship with God, herself, and those around her. It also gave me some things to think about along the way!

    Learned a lot about her life which helps me realize a lot about mind! Got good advice for how to learn to love yourself before others love you which is a topic very relevant to me. Pretty quick and easy read too!

    I’ve been a fan of Lauren Alaina since she was on American idol in 2011. Just like her lyrics in her music I really connected with the writing in her book. This book is filled with lessons, a whole lot of wisdom & advice. It feels like a warm hug & self care all rolled into one :)

    I enjoyed this book but it was a bit too preachy and self-helpy than what I was expecting. I have read a lot of memoirs and taken advice from them without feeling preached at. No real ‘new’ information given. I was hoping more information about sparking passion.

    Absolutely loved this book. This just made me love Lauren Alaina even more. I underlined several lines in this book of things that I want to go back and read to keep my spirits lifted. She really helped me put things into perspective and made me want to love myself.

    I need her as a bestie! Raw personal stories with life lessons she's learned along the way with some insight behind the songs she's written and the meaning behind the lyrics & how to be your own biggest fan.

    I thought this book was very uplifting and inspiring. A must read for young people! Reminds us of things most of us already know. What a wonderful Christian model Lauren is! I enjoyed this quick read.

    Positive message for self love and advocacy. I thought it applied more towards teens/younger 20 year olds.

    Wish this book had been around about 10 years ago! Audiobook version is read by Lauren, which adds to the power and sweetness of her message.

    This is a great book, all young ladies should read it. Remember your school year DO NOT define you, it is only a chapter in your life. You are beautiful and you ARE good enough.

    Read this while mopping the floors in my house. I love her faith and candidness about her struggles. Good tips on things you should do to love yourself/be happy/how to make a good life.
