"You Don’t Have to Learn Everything the Hard Way" is like sitting down with a favorite aunt–one who love you–and having a conversation. With lots of stories and quotes, this book honestly talks about the issues that are most important in a young adult life (and were most requested by readers): sex, drugs, peer pressure and setting goals, to the tough stuff like suicide and sexual abuse, to moving forward in life: changes, communicating and living your dreams.
This book offers inspiration and understanding to the lives of the readers. It opens doors to healing the hurt places, perhaps even avoiding danger or pain in the future, and gives tools to help build dreams by acknowledging that everyone has gifts in life.

I Never Thought of THAT...
Sure, all young people make mistakes. And yes, you should try to learn from them. But does that mean you have to try everything--and make a lot of painful mistakes--before you can say you've learned a thing or two about life? Not according to Aunt Laya. You can learn from other successes and failures of others, make smart choices, and lead an exciting, satisfying life. This book is a great place to start. Listen to Aunt Laya:
"Decide for yourself the kind of life you want. You have to live your own adventure in life, but you don't have to reinvent the wheel."
In You Don't Have to Learn Everything the Hard Way, Aunt Laya Saul helps you find--within yourself--the answers to life's most important questions. It's like having a heart-to-heart talk with your favorite aunt, one who understands you, respects you, and wants you to reach high for your dreams.
Aunt Laya shows you how to:
Conquer your doubts--recognize and use your gifts and your strengths
Tap into and trust your intuition to make good choices and avoid danger
Define your boundaries for better, healthier relationships
Open the door to healing places where you hurt
Strengthen yourself with wisdom and information
Got friends or loved ones who could use some support?

LAYA SAUL spent an unusually long time in adolescence where she earned a Master's degree in "Life's Stupid Mistakes." She later went on to earn a Master's degree in Applied Psychology.
As a child she dreamt about helping kids. The older she gets, the older the group of people who fall into the "kid" category!
She hopes that every reader will be able to take something from her writing to live a richer life and be blessed.
