LYFSGUD: If God Sent You a Text Message
In this short devotional book for LDS girls, Laurel Christensen says, “Heavenly Father is anxious to talk to you. And if texting was His chosen method, He would do it. But, for now, it's not. He wants you to come to Him in prayer and scripture study and personal worship time. So, don't let these "text devotionals" be replacements for any of that. But if they can be little reminders of messages He is trying to send you, then they've done their job.”
LYFSGUD is full of inspirational thoughts especially for Latter-day Saint young women. Laurel's unique way of putting things will help them understand on a deeply personal level that they have a Father in Heaven, that they are His daughters, and that He loves them.
Each chapter includes a “Big Message” (a devotional), a “Little Message” (an invitation to act), and a section called “His Message for You” (where girls are invited to write down the impressions they receive from the Spirit while they read).

I finished Laurel's book last night and I sooo wish I would've had this book when I was a teenager! I'd like to believe it would've inspired me to make better choices with my life in my late teens/early 20's. What an amazing book! I just loved it and even today at "my age" it has inspired me to be better and to try hard and to recognize and realize who I am and what I mean to my Heavenly Father! Big Thanks to Laurel!
*****A must read for EVERY Teen LDS Girl*****

This author "get's it"! She understands how Young Women think. I love how she understands how some things really are hard and discouraging but that overall life really is good and Heavenly Father really does love us. It's a positively hopeful book. I would love to re-read this book (but unfortunately my 15 year old niece grabbed it so she could read it.)

This book is full of uplifting messages and invitations focused to young women. As the father of 3 daughters I'm glad my girls can read such uplifting messages. I also really like how Laurel creates space for the young women to write down impressions that come to them through the spirit.
