Book Giveaways: “Not Afraid of Life” and Many More!

Book Giveaways: “Not Afraid of Life” and Many More! July 8, 2012

While I was watching my Washington, DC book signing for “Not Afraid of Life,” it made me realize how many people were inspired by my story.  Thanks for all the notes, Facebook messages, and e-mails of support!

This month, the SixSeeds Faith and Family Channel is giving away some “summer beach reads,” and they asked me to participate.  The way it works is simple.  Just leave a comment below this article and I’ll randomly select a person to receive their free copy of my book!

Here’s a description of my book from

Bristol Palin lived the life of an average American teen. She loved being outdoors, spending time with family and friends, and focusing on schoolwork and sports. But when her mother became the Republican vice presidential candidate in 2008, Bristol’s world changed forever. She was instantly propelled into the national spotlight, becoming the focus of intense public and national media scrutiny at the age of seventeen.

In this personal memoir, Bristol opens up for the first time, taking readers behind the scenes of her life, from growing up in Alaska to coming of age amid the media and political frenzy surrounding her mother’s political rise; from becoming a single mother while still a teenager to coping as her relationship with the baby’s father crumbled publicly—not once, but twice. Through all of these ups and downs, Bristol learned how to face her challenges head-on with courage and grace, traits she put to good use as a contestant and finalist on Dancing with the Stars.

In Not Afraid of Life, Bristol speaks candidly of her aspirations and of the deep religious faith that gives her strength and inspiration. Plainspoken and disarmingly down-to-earth, Bristol offers new insight and understanding of who she is and what she values most.

  • Karen Hensley

    Bristol, I have always been a supporter of you and your family. I had the opportunity to go to Alaska and loved it. I can really understand why you would not want to stay in California. I have really enjoyed your show and look forward to it each week. I would love to have a copy of your book to pass on to my 12 year old granddaughter who already thinks she is grown. She is 12, but is 5′ 11 and looks a lot older. She already has older boys trying to get her to go out with them and I would like for her to be able to see from someone besides her grandmother where this leads. Her mother left her and her sister who is 9 yrs. old almost 3 years ago, so there is no guidance at home and she thinks Mawmaw is just out of touch with what is going on now. I also got the opportunity last year to see your Mom at an Extraordinary Women conference in Lynchburg, VA. She is a real powerhouse and am looking forward to seeing her again. Hope one of these days to get to meet some other members of your family. Wishing you all the blessings this world has to offer and you already have a big one in Tripp. Thanks again for this opportunity.

    I have been wanting to read this for awhile now. As mom to two little ones, reading kinda takes me awhile 🙂 I love the show and think it’s refreshing to see a mom who takes pride in being a mom even at such a young age AND with being the subject of such unfair media coverage.

    Bristol, your mom and dad have raised you well. They have been such a strong witness to all that watch. In spite of all the challenges, they and now you are not bowing to those venomous voices, but rising up, standing up and walking forward into the greatness and unlimited possibilities as you look to Heaven finding Christ Who himself faced incalculable obstacles yet overcame. May you and all of your family continue to find all that you need through Christ, all the days and years of your lives. Love to you all. A Palinista in AZ.

Take care Bristol and ur family!! :))

  • Bristol, thank you so much for writing your book and for being so open and honest about your situation in order to help others out. You exemplify what our generation needs, and despite anything negative people have said about you or your family, you have helped me and countless others. May God continue to bless you and your family!

  • Heather Laurin

    Bristol, you are an amazing and inspiring young woman. You have faced what I would consider the most brutal media scrutiny that any individual ever has, and yet you stand tall with your head held high and your beautiful baby boy at your side. You have weathered the storm and now you have a wonderful future ahead. Know that you are blessed and are a blessing to many.

All of you take the higher road.. I love both your shows on TV.
    Alaska is a beautiful state been there twice and can’t wait to get back.Stay strong!!!

  • Stephanie Johnson

    I am a huge fan of your mother’s and your family as a whole. I was a freshman in high school during the ’08 election, and I had a very liberal social studies teacher and class, so I found myself constantly defending Sen. McCain and your mom. I am now an incoming freshman at Indiana University, and I am prepared to continue defending my beliefs. I can’t wait to read your book because I have such a tremendous amount of respect for you. You have made no bones about your mistakes, and no apologies for how you choose to live your life now, and yet you are still willing to admit you are wrong when you make a mistake. It takes an incredible person to do so. I watched you on DWTS and Life’s a Tripp, and follow this blog, and I have yet to see anything about you that is not upstanding. I would love to meet you and your mom someday (and your beautiful son)! It would be an honor to win your book!

  • kdolphins

    Would love the opportunity to read the book!! You are an inspiration not only to young girls but to us old fogies as well!! You have taken opportunities most of us would be afraid to do – like book signings and raising Tripp and dancing your heart out on TV. Good for you!! Wish you all the BEST!!

  • Erin Richardson

    Hey Bristol,
    I would LOVE to win a copy of your book. I always’ knew’ who you were but never really knew your story. I recently started watching your show and it really touched a spot in my heart, even though I’m not a Mommy myself I would love to be one, one day. Your struggles that I have seen have really taught me lessons about being strong. You are extremely wise and I feel like you have a lot to teach young women like myself in this world. I admire you a lot I see you as a strong women of God who is not afraid of whats ahead. You are your Mom are role models to me by how you live out your life and your values not only family values but your faith. That is something really important to me so I look up to you in the respect. I hope one day when that time is right that I will be a great mother like your Mother is to you and like you are to Tripp. I would love to receive a copy of your book! I’ve actually been looking up online at different places to buy your book but right now the money is just not there because i’m a college student and i’m currently talking summer classes. You are such an inspiration, you influence me to what to have sex, to stay strong and not to be afraid. Keep inspiring Bristol ♥
    – God Bless, Erin ♥ Philippians 4:13

  • Jackie Roach

    I love your show! watching you with your son inspires me to be as good a mom to my kids in the future. I would love to read about how far you have come and your experiences with Tripp!

  • I would love to win a copy of your book Bristol! I’ve spent many years being ‘afraid of life’ and would enjoy reading your point of view. Though you are quite a bit younger than I am, I have found your perserverance inspirational and love your zest for life. I enjoy watching your show and am certain I will find the same enjoyment in your book. Have an awesome summer!

  • Heidi Kindell

    I instantly loved Bristol during dancing with the stars. I feel that she was very candid and easy to relate to. I enjoy reading her posts and learning more about her. I feel that there was a lot of misrepresentation of the Palin family in 2008 and am glad to understand the family better!

  • Claire

    Not Afraid Of Life came at the perfect time for me. The day I borrowed it from my local library was also the day I found out my sister was pregnant out of wedlock. Bristol, your book really helped me work through my emotions of anger that she became pregnant with a less than desirable man, and helped me to realize that the sex was the sin, and this baby is going to be such an incredible blessing. Thank you for showing your vulnerabilities in this book. I loved it!

  • kara

    I would love to read ur book because I was 17 when I had my daughter and had my son when I was 19 and I had no friends to relate too. I love watching ur show.

  • Brittani r

    Bern wanting to read bristols book for a while. Hope I win. I was a teen mom myself. I love hears others stories

  • Brittani Hermanni

    Pick me!!!

  • Ed Davis

    Bristol? I’d like a copy of your book simply because my daughter Christine had a baby at 16, and without familial help on almost a daily basis cannot hande it mentally. I’ve read many excerpts from the book and agree with most.

    I truly believe that your story will get her back on the right path, back to how she was raised and back to a possible sanity.

  • Stephanie

    I haven’t read your book yet, but I think that it is wonderful that you have written about your life. Letting the world see that you have your ups and downs, that EVERYONE makes mistakes, and showing that you can accept, grow, and learn from the mistakes that you have made in your life. It takes a strong person to share their life with people. It also takes a strogner person to put themselves out there and listen/read both the positive and negative that others hae to say about them and their family. I strongly feel that you have done that gracefully and respectfullyg. Hopefully your book will help others relate and see that you and your family are people too.

  • Amber

    I enjoy watching your show,Life’s a Trip, so I’d really like to read your book.

  • I would so love to have Bristols book she is such an inspiration to me ! I was at rock bottom the first time

  • Lisa D

    I commend Bristol for not shying away from showing it is not all glitz and glamour, even in more affluent families when it comes to pregnancy in general, let alone a teen pregnancy. She has shown how hard it can be all while maintaining her grace and dignity even when the media was dragging her through the mud. I cannot wait to read this book!

  • Samantha White

    Thank you for opening up, sharing your story, and being so candid with all of the world. From watching your show and reading pieces of your book, I have learned a bit more about you aside from what the media has portrayed of you over the years, and it’s nice to see that they are wrong and you and your family are just as normal as the rest of us!:) Thanks again for what you’ve done, and may God bless you and your family!!

  • Donielle Katalinas

  • Stephanie

    I was SO excited to hear Bristol was coming out with her own show!

    Bristol- you are so inspiring to watch on T.V. – even your mom is inspiring! Though I wasn’t as young as you when you were pregnate with sweet Tripp- I’m only 18- I still struggle with everyday things! Praying to God, being very faithful, and having a great relationship with both sides of our families, really helps a lot. My heart does go out to you, and Tripp with dealing with his father. Its wonderful your bestfriend Gino & your family helps out a lot! And I’ve also kept up with your T.V. show, and just enjoy watching it so much. You are such a wonderful mom, and so so strong!

    Bristol, I absolutely adore you, and your family. The Palin clan is the quintessential American family! The definition of honesty, love, hard work, and American pride. If I win this book, it will be placed on my shelf right beside both of your mother’s. Your son is gorgeous, and you are doing wonderful. I suppose as a stranger it doesn’t mean much, but if you were my daughter I would be proud of all you have done!

  • Alyssa

    Bristol! I desperately need your book. I have been following your story ever since 2008 and I think you are a great role model. I love how you’re learning from your mistakes and you hope other girls do to. I, myself as a young teen, have definitely learned from you. I think that you’re a great inspiration to women everywhere and I really appreciate what you do. I love that you’re defiantly trying as a super young mom and I definitely know that Tripp will appreciate it. I really love watching your show and I loved Sarah’s show too. I voted for you on DWTS too 🙂 I’m just a small town girl and I can’t believe I haven’t read you’re book yet! My best friend has and she said it was AMAZING. Since you and Nancy wrote it, I think it will be amazing. Please chose me, the Palin’s biggest fan! 😀

  • Bristol! I am your #1 fan (and your whole families) I would love to win a copy of your book. I hope I am not to late to enter. I watch your show every Tuesday and am kind of obsessed!
    Love you girl!

  • Beth Hamad

    Hi Bristol!!! I would be so happy to be chosen to get your book!!! I have loved following you and your journey since your mom was chosen to be the VP. I feel like I can relate to you and look up to you for inspiration. I also come from a family that has 5 kids, and I too, am the oldest daughter with an older brother and 3 younger siblings. Keep up the hard work girl, and know you always have great supporters from Cincinnati! Love your show!


  • Cindy

    Bristol, I would love to give your book to my daughter. I think she could learn a lot from a young woman like you, who shows courage and optimism even through criticism and hardships. You are the ideal role model for all young girls. I watch your show with my daughter each week in hopes that she can learn from you. It’s a good diversion from regular “reality TV.” Finally we have a real reality show to watch, where character, moral strength and integrity are glorified.

    We’re rooting and praying for you, Bristol!

  • Angela Wells

    Hi Bristol, my name is Ashley and i’m from a small city in southern Tx, i’m 17 years old and sometimes I wonder how my life would be if I would ever have a kid at this age. I really look forward to reading your book, and I would really appreciate it if I got one for free. It looks like a very nice book. You inspire me to never give up on life even if people get in your way and try to make you miserable. You’re very strong and pretty. I watch your show and so far it’s awesome.

    I would love to read your book as well as any of the other books. Thank you.

  • Lauren

    I think that Bristol is very inspiring to me, I have wanted to read her book for awhile. I can relate as I was a single mom at 17 and think that she has been a great example for other single mothers out there to show what the most important thing is…your child. Unfortunately there are many others her age who do not have the same outlook and values in life.

  • Leanne

    I’d love to win a copy of your book. As a teen mom myself, I would love to hear your journey. I have a son as well as a daughter, and I want to be able to tell them more than just my own story when they become old enough for me to talk to them about sex, because I don’t want them to be in the same situation I was, and you were, and so many other teens out there.

  • nacole

    Bristol is cool i would love to read this book

  • Jenny Drager

    Hi Bristol. I would love to win a copy of your book. I know it has to be hard being a teen mom as it is and then have people scrutinize you all the time. Mostly the media overplays everything so much. I recentely started watching your show and I think you are a great mother. He is a great kid with a strong support system. Keep staying strong and doing what is best for you and your family!

  • Breanna

    I am trying to conquer a lot of things in my own life and it inspires me whe I watch Bristol conquer things in hers. I’m holding onto the same things Bristol has, God and family to help get me through. I’m always inspired when I watch Bristol (which is all the time) I love watching her show and reading her blog. I think shes an awesome Mom too! We need more real role models in this world like Bristol. Who admit when they make mistakes, pick themselves back up and learn from it and teach others. I love you Bristol!

  • Rita

    I would like to read the book and learn more about you!

  • kaycee mize

    i would love to read your book!!!! i love your show and tripp is so gorgeous, to pretty to be a boy lol, thats what everyone would say about my son. i can relate to you in a few ways in that im a single mother and my sons father doesn’t ever see him and i gave up on him seeing him last year when we met at a park and he ignored my son, it broke my heart! i know how you feel when you want tripps dad to be in his llife bc my dad has always been there for me and i want that for my son but i just pray for what God says is best for my son and it isnt to have his dad. it still breaks my heart. i wish your family, you, and tripp the best in life!!!! and also i wanted to say YOU GO GIRL, for defending your mom in the bar!!! i would have done the same thing! your mom rocks!!!! 🙂 lol but anyways i would love to have and read your book!

  • Yuna Katz

    I absolutely would love to read Bristol’s book I have such respect for a young girl who can make it on her own as a single mom under the scrutiny of the public eye, I love her family and what they stand for!

  • Heather

  • Ashley

    I think you are a great role model. Even through what some call “mistakes”, you have have been able to reach so many through your story and teach abstinence. I support you all the way!

  • Cheryl Kistuline

    First of all, I want to say that my family and I are inspired by the Palin family and all that they stand for. It is through God that this particular family has been able to use their faith and spread it amongst our wonderful nation. I can’t say I’ve ever been so powerfully impacted by any sort of ‘political family force’ before and it just inspires me to reach deeper into my faith and stand up for what I believe in just as the Palin’s do. Anyways, I would definitely love to own this book and add it to my collection! I love how God can place people in our country and even our lives to influence us into becoming a better version of ourselves (and country) and not to forget our beliefs and morals. I praise this God-fearing family and continue to support them in their political endeavors! 🙂

  • Peggy D.

    You are wise for your young age. And, you are certainly your mother’s daughter! Great witnessing – you certainly know that although God doesn’t spare us from trials, He has promised to be with us and help us overcome them. Hope I get your book 🙂

  • Jessica

    I’d love to read uour book and learn more about you. Its so refreshing to see a young adult live their life and even under the scrutiny, you don’t compromise. I’m a Christian and love your family and all yous stand for. It encourages me when I watch your show to stand for Christ even more, I mean if you can do it under the pressure your under, so can I. I bless you Bristol to continue to walk in the favor of the Lord and thank you for standing for righteousness in this dark world. Blessings!!

  • Jamie Hobbs

  • Elaine Curry

    Bristol, I would love to have a copy of your book. As a teenager, you went through so much, and your maturity showed other teenagers that through faith, family, and love, anything can be accomplished. You grew up with a wonderful family who raised you the right way, to face your obligations, learn from your mistakes, and tell your story to others so that they might learn. I respect you for your accomplishments, and your dedication especially to God and your family. May you and your family always be blessed and may you continue to teach others what you have learned through your trials.

  • Toni Schwenn

    I am just about your mother’s age, so that means you’re young enough to be my daughter. I am so impressed and proud of the way you have stood strong in the face of adversity. It is your faith in God and your convictions that have empowered you to withstand all of the horrific things people have said about you and to you. You’re like a weeble–they may knock you down, but you bounce right back up. Thank you for writing your book telling your story. I’ve read snippets of it and I’ve heard interviews that you have given about it. I hope I’m one of the choices you make to receive a free copy. Blessings to you, to Tripp, and to the rest of your family. God is good! Toni

    Glad to get to know you better thru TV show. You are maturing quite well considering all the mean spirited people that say hurtful things to you. Know my prayers are with you, Tripp & the rest of your family. I think the family is really cool. Plus I like your moms look just the way she is. All you girls are ” beautiful” Keep looking up. To your haters I say – what you sow you reap! What goes around, comes around. They will get what’s coming to them. You keep being You. I think your Great!!!!! 🙂

  • Amber Johnson

    I too was a teen mom and I know how hard it is. I applaud you though because you are doing this as a single parent and luckily my child’s father stayed and we are now married (almost 5 yrs after my daughter’s birth). But you have so much more to deal with than being a single teen mom, because of your mom being in the spot light like she is. I really think you have matured and grown up to be a wonderful mother and responsible adult. I am proud of you for being the teen mom that is in the spotlight and you handleing things properly (ie.The bar fight). You keep it up girl and you’ll go a long way. Oh, by the way, one big important thing I wanted to tell you is I’m really proud of you, the way you stick up for your mom and family. You go girl!
    Just another mom

  • Melissa W.

    I enjoyed Sarah Palin’s show, and I am now enjoying Bristol’s show. I am in my 30’s and while I wasn’t a teenage mom, I applaud the example Bristol is setting for young ladies across the country. Be true to yourself and always, always take care of your children. Mine are my greatest blessing, and I know many mothers who feel the same way.

  • Mary Beth Hunt

    I’d love to win this book! I can’t imagine how hard it must have been to grow up overnight while in the spotlight. I met your mother and 2 sisters at a book signing in Iowa. What a thrill! What a family. So glad you are sharing it and witnessing to us thru your TV show. 🙂

I have followed your accomplishments ever since. I am now going to college for nursing, bought my first home & got Aubrey (My daughter) potty trained a year ago. I really love seeing you go out there & not only speak for teen moms but understand their struggles. you inspire me & i really would love to read your book so if i am lucky & get a copy it will make my day, if not ill buy it anyway but i want you to know i love the show because its so much like my life an it makes me feel not so alone in my situation 🙂

  • michelle miller

    I am a huge fan of your family! I get so irritated when I see people criticize the Palin family. I defend them like it is my family. I was so happy when you came out with your show and now I only love you all more. I see how down to earth you all are. How could anyone not love the Palin’s?!?!

  • Nicole

    Bristol, I am truly inspired by your family! After watching your moms show and now yours, your family reminds me so much of mine. A bunch of girls that would rather spend their time hunting, shooting and fishing rather than shopping! I love how strong minded your family is and how no matter what, you stand up for what you believe in. Willow and one if my little sisters are sooo much alike.. It cracks me up! Sweet and fun.. Then BAM.. she’s mad! Tripp is so cute.. Even in his moments.. It’s hard to not laugh =) keep on keeping on.. Your family rocks and shows a glimpe of hope for what this country needs, TLC! Down to earth, smart, full of faith, strong minded and most of all.. REAL! And ps.. Far northern Cali is not quite as awful as southern Cali.. But I still can’t wait to get outta here!


    I am so proud of you Bristol for exposing yourself and your son. It is about time everyone hears your side of the story. I watched you on DWTS and thought you were great. You go girl!

  • Jason Baldwin

    Bristol, I have always love you and your family. I am the one that got my head shaved on air at 104 KRBE in Houston Texas after you came in 3rd on Dancing with the Stars. I thought you had it all! Love you and your family. God bless you!

You and your family are an inspiration. Thank you to you and your family for shareing your lives and stories with us. You are all very courageous. I have to say that seeing you stand up for your mother and her belief’s against that horrible, unhappy, man in california was touching. I am sorry that their are people out their that arelike that. I love your new show and I appreciate seeing a mature young women talk openly about God and pray on national television is an Awesome thing. God Bless you and you Family.

  • Rachel

    I was not a teen mom, but you and your family are still so inspiring to me!

I would love to have a copy of your book. You have fans here in Wisconsin!!!

    You are such an awesome role model. Another outdoor loving girl who likes to shoot guns is cool. I would love to win your book

  • Demaris

    I hope life is treating you well. I hope you, Geno, and Tripp are enjoying life. I would give anything for you to show me around Alaska and show me what life is like growing up in America’s last frontier. I am writing you not as a teen mom, but someone who struggled through their teen years. I have a learning disability and high school was awful. So many teachers told me that I would not succeed and not be a contributing member of society. Well did I prove them wrong…after a degree from Bowling Green State University in Education and a Master’s degree, I have been teaching first grade for 8 years. Never once did I let my head hang low or ask the question of myself “could I do this?” I just told myself I would. Through your book, TV show and your blog I want to give you credit for not letting your head hang low either. God gives us challenges in life and I think you and I both think the same way, how are we going to get through the challenges? These challenges God gives us only makes us stronger and better informed for the future. Keep thinking that you can do whatever comes your way! Thanks for sharing your story!

  • Katie

    I love watching your show! It’s nice to see the “real” side of an American family on reality tv for once!

  • Robyn G

    I love love love the show on Lifetime!!!

  • MaryBeth Distefano

    Bristol-I am loving watching you and your family on your show. Alaska is definitely intriguing – like Texas with lots of snow! How do you manage to pull off hoodies and coats in such a cute way??

  • Mary

    You are an awesome role model! God bless you and your family!

  • Samantha Tyriver

    I would love to win a copy of your book, Bristol, so that I can give it to my mom to add to her Palin family collection (I would say to add to MY collection, but I already have one)!!

    When your mom was on her book tour, my mom and I were two of the first in line at her stop in Plano, TX because we had “camped out!” I still look back on my few moments of conversation I got to have with your mom and smile. Whether I was to win the book or not, I think it is important to let you and your family know that I support all you do, and think you all are a wonderful example of a close, loving American family! Thanks for being an example to many around the world!!

  • Jennie Chatelle

    I am a HUGE fan of the Palin family, I would love a copy of your book!

  • Crystal Melton

    I am actually ashamed to admit that I have not read your book yet. Without ever meeting you I actually think we have a lot in common. I too grew up in Alaska, Chugiak actually, and was also a teen mom myself. But, the main thing we have in common is our unbelievably supportive families. I can not imagine where I would be without mine. I was watching your show last night and there was a point in which you were on the radio. You said how someone who had lung cancer would never be criticized for advocating for cancer, yet people do not believe in your support for the Candies Foundation because you made a mistake. I can not agree with you more. Teen moms have simply made a mistake and yes we all want better for our children. You are a great role model and a terrific mom!

  • Megan Hasprey

    After seeing your show I feel really connected to you and your family and I love how down to earth you all are!

  • taylor

  • I would love to win a free copy because I don’t win things very often…LOL!



  • Angie

    I love Bristol Palin. I have been watching your new show and I just love it!! It made me go back and watch Sarah Palin’s show, Alaska on Netflix. I love them both!! I would love a copy of your book!!

  • Tara Webster

    I would love to win one of your books. I was a single mom at 21years old. It was not a easy road I did find my prince charming to help me raise my now 5year old daughter. I married him this last November. I wish that I could help be a support to single moms like you are.

  • Lauren Niven

    I really love your show, your family and your attitude about life, Bristol!!!!

  • Joan W.

    I have been watching your show “Life’s a Tripp”, and I really admire how strong and true you are to yourself….something to be inspired by! I tried getting your book from my public library, but they don’t carry it, but I have put in a request for them to add it to their catalog!

  • I think Bristol is a wonderful role model. Through any situation she lets God give her strength. I voted for her every week on Dances With The Stars…..( I have not watched the show since because I think she was treated unfairly). I would love to win the book. I want to read it and so does my daughter, but I will buy it anyway.

  • Amanda Akridge

    I love your show, and admire your family so much. I am currently reading your mother’s first book, and plan to read her second one afterwards. I would love to read yours as well, I think that you are a great inspiration to many young mothers out there.

  • Penny J

    I discovered your show 2 weeks ago and have become a huge fan! You are a brave, smart, wonderful mom and person. I think you have your heart in the right place with your decision to do the reality show AND your personal life! Hang in there!

  • Antonya Hinshaw

    Bristol you are such an amazing person. Tripp is a lucky lil guy and one day he will have someone that he gets to call daddy, and when that day comes your heart will skip a beat. My son David was just like trip to a t! All the way down to having our version of Levi for his father but now David knows. That he’s so special that God gave him a daddy that loves him dearly. I have followed you and seen your strength over the last four years and you have a reason to hold your head high!! Prayers and blessings from Indiana!

  • Catherine Kirby

    Love your show!

  • Samantha S

    I love Bristol Palin. Her show proves the truth about Levi. She’s strong and beautiful!

  • Shannon

    I love the Palin family. I believe that they are just down to earth people trying to live life and leave a better world for the future. No one if perfect, but God has a plan for everyone, and this family believes that and practices a pefect love for one another no matter the circumstances. They are not affraid to show the world who they are and how God’s love holds them together in every situation.

  • jacquelyn knowles

    I’ve been wanting to read this book for so long, I adore the Palin family!

  • Kara Peters

    Bristol, I am looking forward to reading your book! I feel like we really need sincere faith based individuals to fight for the sanctity of our country. I met your mother on a book tour and have always agreed with her view on many issues. I really would love the chance to win your book, which is being given away on my 30 th birthday which is awesome! I will however, purchase the book if I do not win 🙂

  • Ashley

    Hey Bristol! I love your show!

  • Destiney whitaker

    I love watching your show:) id love to read your book as well. Your a great mom to trip:)

  • Joanna

    I have so much respect for you and everything you have accomplished at such a young age. I may be a year older than you, but I look up to you so much. You stuck to your beliefs and did not let anyone, or anything change that, which is more than I can say for most people our age. You are a beautiful person both inside and out, never change that. Keep holding strong no matter who crosses your path. There with be many people who don’t agree with you or what your family does or says but as long as you keep a good head on your shoulders you will trump them all.

  • Amanda G

    I would absolutely love to win this book.. Ive been wanting to read it for a while now!!

  • Rachel

    I was a teen mom also,I feel that if anyone is going to speak out about teen parenting,birth control,etc. it Should come from someone who’s gone through it,like Bristol Palin. No one should be made to feel insecure about what they’ve gone through,we should support each other to always try and be better.

  • Jim

    I would love to read your book, Bristol 🙂 you and your family are so inspiring.

  • Heather Miller

    I first heard of the name Palin back in August of 2008 when McCain announced your mother as his running mate. I was 18 at the time and sooo excited to vote for the first time. Since then I have continued to follow your mother, Sarah and am constantly inspired by how strong and courageous she is.

    Your mother is not the only one that has been an inspiration to me, you have been very inspiring as well. When I was 21 I had a baby girl. The road has not been easy and I definitely regret a lot, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. My daughter has given me the drive to better myself and get my degree. I currently attend the University of Central Florida and will have my bachelor’s degree in Social Science Education by 2014. Seeing your story has really helped me know that I’m not alone. Like you, I’m very fortunate to have a loving family who is behind me every step of the way. You are an inspiration to girls that are in similar situations. I also love the fact that you are doing everything in your power to keep young girls from making the same mistake. I follow you on facebook, read your blog, and watch your show every week. I would LOVE to win a copy of your book to read.

    Please keep doing what you are doing!

    -Heather 🙂

  • Becki Meadows

    I would love to read this book!! Been a fan of the entire family!! Love watching the new TV show!! Would love to visit Alaska. Since Sarah Palin ran for President / Vice President, her and Bristol have inspired me, that as a female we can do anything we put our mind to, and stand up for what we believe in!!

  • Colleen Burke

    Hi Bristol! I enjoy watching your show on lifetime and wanted to tell you, you are doing an amazing job with Tripp! I’ve had first hand experience with your situation.My sister was also a young, single teen mom who had to overcome many obstacles and difficulties that go along with being a young mom. She had many different roles to play and without the help and love of family and friends it would’ve been a lot tougher for her. My nephew turned 6 in April and just finished Kindergarten this past June and I’m very thankful to have him in my life. No matter what the circumstances are or how it happens every child is a blessing from above and I couldn’t be more grateful that it happened. I wish you and your family the best, & look forward to reading your book!
    -Colleen Burke
