Finding Faithby Terri Ferran
New surroundings and culture shock do nothing to help Kit's social life. It is only with the help of Janet, a new friend,/p>
Kit Matthews tries to avoid thinking about God - and her unknown birth mother - altogether. She loves her family and is content with her life in California. That is, until her parents decide to move to Utah, the land of Mormons.
New surroundings and culture shock do nothing to help Kit's social life. It is only with the help of Janet, a new friend, that Kit begins to adjust to life in Utah, as well as to the Mormon culture. Janet's older brother, Adam, is more than happy to befriend Kit, but when their feelings begin to go beyond friendship, Kit is torn. Does she really want to devote her heart to a boy who is going to leave her for two years to serve a mission for his faith? Can she support him when she doesn't even believe in his religion?
As Kit looks deeper, she realizes that it isn't Adam's faith she needs to come to terms with - it's her own.

Great book. It made me feel good inside even though there was a sad part in it. I really liked Adam and his love for the church. Also him having so much faith and spreading the word of the Gospel to people who need it in their lives.
This first time author has done an excellent job of telling the story of a young almost 18 year old young lady that moves with her family from Ventura, California to Logan, Utah, where Kit's dad gets a job teaching at USU. Kit finds it hard fitting in with the 'Mormon populace', but soon finds true friends with Janet and Adam, strong young stalwarts of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When Adam leaves for Ventura to serve a 2 year Mission, Kit doesn't know if she can survive with Adam gone. With Janet and her older other brother Justin (just home from his Mission) they are able, along with Adam and the entire Bridger family, help keep Kit grounded and help to build her Testimony of the Gospel. She tends to waver in her faith when she's hit with a major trial, but when she remembers what Janet has told her, that 'If you can't stand it, kneel,' she is able to find that faith she needs. I really enjoyed this debut novel from Terri with two R's and am looking forward to her sequel, Having Hope, due next Feb. I highly recommend this novel to anyone that enjoys reading about a young woman finding faith in her struggles in finding herself.
I found the dialog entertaining, the plot twist unexpected and the testimony awesome.
Just another inner struggle with do I believe or don't I. Boring. Don't bother they all end the same.
