Getting good at being you: learning to love who God made you to be


Lauren Alaina


Thomas Nelson

Publication date:



Hardcover with ribbon bookmark


195 pages


Lauren Alaina is a country music star who, with this book, is attempting to transfer what she has learned about being comfortable as herself to other readers, especially other young women. Each chapter ends with a part called Get to It where the author gives real specifics to readers of ways to implement what she has written previously in that chapter. The book is peppered with color photos of Lauren that give us an idea of her personality, particularly as she entertains with her singing.

Throughout each lesson that Lauren shares ( Such as Taking the road to the real you; Trusting your heart’s desire; Redefining Beauty; and nine more), she weaves her trust and dependence on the Lord and encourages her readers to do the same. This book is particularly recommended for young women although any age reader could find some truths to apply to their lives.
