This month I am sharing resources for LDS teens.  We all know this blog caters mostly to lessons for very young children, so I have been scouting out some amazing resources for kids ages 10 and up!

This book is a collection of essays by LDS speakers and writers. It is intended to help teens 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 LDS teens see trials as essential stepping-stones to becoming who you're destined to be. I loved all of the different voices and experience of the writers. It seems like no matter the teen, one of these styles will reach them on their own personal level.

My favorites were by Tamu Smith and Al Carraway. Tamu spoke of a long-term lie she got caught in and the process of repentance and fortifying her relationship with God and Jesus Christ and how that effected her social experience in Junior High School. This is so relatable to teens everywhere! Al Carraway spoke about her own conversion in her early 20's, the trials that followed her conversion, and how the basic principles of the gospel are basics for a reason...they work!!!

This book can be used to plan Family Home Evenings, building a lesson around a story and the principles it teaches. Teens can also just have this book to read through and reference in times of need. It is inspiring, well-written, and would be a great tool in navigating those difficult teen years when we feel that everything in life is supposed to be "fair".

THE GIVE-AWAY IS CLOSED.  Please click the link above to purchase this amazing book.

I'd give it to my oldest son, who just turned 13, and probably have my 11 year old read it too. Thanks for the chance!

I would use it as a 17 year old teen in my home to get family home evening going again. I have two 16 year old sibling a 14 year old brother and an 11 year old sister and a few other younger siblings. We've kind of stopped recently because the older kids don't want to come because it isn't relevant to them. I want to change that because I want our family to become closer.
