Summary

Read by the author.

With a little bit of country, a whole lot of faith, and a healthy dose of sass, award-winning singer-songwriter Lauren Alaina's debut book, Getting Good at Being You, invites you to take the road less traveled as you step right up to who God calls you to be.

After years in the spotlight on American Idol and Dancing with the Stars, country music star Lauren Alaina has learned a thing or two about fighting self-doubt and feeling at home in her own skin. In Getting Good at Being You, Lauren shares stories about everything from lost loves to getting a nose ring to battling an eating disorder to grieving a loved one’s death. Each story leads to practical tips, take-it-on-the-road strategies, and encouragement for your own personal and spiritual growth.

In this book, you will be inspired to:

  • speak to yourself with kindness and compassion
  • chase the dreams that light your spirit on fire
  • cultivate rich relationships with family and friends
  • identify self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors
  • offer forgiveness for yourself and others

Throughout the book, you will find:

  • behind-the-scenes photos from Lauren's career in country music.
  • lists, tips, and strategies to boost your self-confidence.
  • prompts to help you dream big and run toward who you are.

Each of us deserves head-over-heels, can't-get-enough, shout-it-from-the-mountaintops self-love. By the final page of Getting Good at Being You, that's just the kind of confidence you'll have. As Lauren discovered, maybe life is getting good after all.

Lauren Alaina

I’ve followed Lauren since American Idol, I always thought for someone so young her voice is so pure and angelic. Been lucky enough to see her when she sang in Glasgow! I love this book. Hopefully she does another UK tour soon.

Wonderful, Inspirational Book

Had no idea what to expect when this book popped up on my feed. But I recall watching Lauren when she was on American Idol, so I thought I’d give it a go. Lauren, what an inspiration you are! This book offers such good insight and advice! I’d give it more than 5 stars if I could!!

Uplifting!

Great listen! I wish I had been that wise at 25! The chapter about Lauren's Stepdad, Sam, was heart breaking but beautiful and so inspiring. Thank you Lauren. I've been a fan since your American Idol audition!

Blown away by her

I loved this book so much. Loved hearing her speak it. It was like she was in the same room and she was telling me her story. I laughed, I cried, I just wanted to give her a hug! I am still working on living myself but she gives so many wonderful ways to learn to do it. She is wise beyond her years! Such a lovely person for all she has already been through.
