True faith is focused in and on the Lord and always leads to righteous action. Exercising faith in the Lord is a necessary preparation for following Him. Peter and Andrew are strong examples of hearing and following the Master.
The Savior has admonished us to become as He is. We continue to come to know the Lord as we seek through the power of His Atonement to become like Him. In His mortal ministry, Jesus marked the path, led the way, and set the perfect example. Such knowledge is not an unknowable mystery and is not focused primarily upon our temporal pursuits or ordinary mortal concerns. Rather, steady and sustained progress along the covenant pathway is the course of life that is pleasing to Him. Pressing forward on the strait and narrow path is what He would have us do. Both exercising faith in and following Jesus Christ are necessary preparations for serving Him.
We more fully come to know the Lord as we serve Him and labor in His kingdom. As we do so, He generously blesses us with heavenly help, spiritual gifts, and increased capacity. We are never left alone as we work in His vineyard. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up.follow
ALBUM REVIEW: MORGAN WALLEN – IF I KNOW ME
We come to know the Savior as we do our best to go where He wants us to go, as we strive to say what He wants us to say, and as we become what He wants us to become. Serving Him requires all of our heart, might, mind, and strength. We grow to love those whom we serve. Not everyone has the same heart as you. No matter how bad the situation is, it will pass and it will eventually change. Darling, please do yourself a big favor. Find courage from yourself and keep going.

She won't know. If any of us knew that we would never regret anything, would always make the 'right' choices!!

Okay, Audrey does gets points for telling her boyfriend about her pregnancy almost immediately. Big bonus points for that. And I could totally understand her not wanting to tell anyone else for a while. While her friends are going on with their lives, falling in love, she is struggling with one of the biggest decisions of her life. Not easy. But I found this book was actually focused a lot more on her friendships than her pregnancy and certainly more on that than of her search for her biological mother.
I must have misread the synopsis because I thought a lot more of the book would be focused on Audrey's biological mother. Aside from a letter she receives from her biological mother, there isn't much more to that part of the story. Overall, this book wasn't for me. It didn't stand out from the many other books out there with similar themes and I certainly didn't connect with the characters.
I fear my reaction may differ from the majority, so I encourage you to try it for yourself. The publishers provided an advanced readers copy of this book for reviewing purposes.

I was lucky enough to read this book early, and I really fell in love with it. As an author, I know firsthand how difficult this is to do. Audrey, the main character, has to make the most important decision of her life when she learns she is pregnant. Audrey's thoughts and emotions are chronicled so believably, and t I was lucky enough to read this book early, and I really fell in love with it. Audrey's thoughts and emotions are chronicled so believably, and themes of family and friendship are woven throughout in such a beautiful way.
Audrey's female friendships feel more like a tightly-knit sisterhood, and her boyfriend, Julian, is supportive and not stereotypical. I also thought Audrey's relationships with her mom who adopted her as a baby and her mom's boyfriend are so authentic. It's tough as a writer to have the supporting characters feel as fleshed out as the main character, but Rebecca Barrow does it in such an effortless way.
An honest, realistic portrait of a teenage girl trying to make the best decision for her, not the decision others may think is right. Readers will gravitate to Audrey and be able to see themselves in the different facets of her personality. I'm so excited for this book to come out so I can rave about it even more! Absolutely not. This was such a terrible read. I not only hated her decision because it was absolutely selfish but I couldn't stand her as a person. Her "friends" were terrible. I can't imagine being around people like that.
Sadly I knew from the first few chapters these people were going to be unlikable. I'm sorry to have wasted my time on this book. See more of my reviews on The YA Kitten! What is a privileged white girl like me supposed to say about a book this good? Girls Trip is another good example of that.
Even side characters who gets considerably less page time experience solid character development. The focus remains on Audrey, though. There is very little concrete action or forward momentum in the novel. Most importantly, it delivers the messages that every person is different, every pregnancy is different, and no one option is better than the others.
With as powerful and gentle a debut as this, Rebecca Barrow is an author to watch. May 04, Haley rated it liked it Shelves: edelweiss-netgalley-r2r-finished , Audrey finds out she's pregnant and she has no idea what to do. Her birth mother gave her up for adoption when she was younger and Audrey finds herself in a happy family now without her. Audrey is faced with all the pros and cons of having a baby at It doesn't help when her best friend-Rose is supposed to be there for her, but rather her best friend and she have gotten into an argument.
The Bad I feel like I've read a book like this sooo many other times so this is just repetitive. There wasn't anything new in the storyline that I haven't heard before. The Good Although this is a repetitive story and I've read ones like this multiple times. It was a cute story and the ending was happy.
There was a fast pace which made it so much better and I found the length to be perfect for the story. Overall I think Audrey made the right choice in the ending for her future. It was a fun and fast paced read and I did really enjoy the author's reading. I just wish it wasn't like every other book that's out there now. Jan 27, Courtney rated it did not like it. I really wanted to like this, but it was just so It's never good when I start to skim parts of a book, like I did this one.
There was a lot going on but at the same time, it felt like nothing was really happening, if that makes any sense. Some of the writing and dialogue was almost annoying in some spots? Maybe that's the best way I can think to describe it? If you were to ask me what the plot of this book is, I'm honestly not sure how I'd explain.
