NOTE FROM CHRISTA: This is one of the coolest books ever! In fact, I posted the blog late because I flipped through it to find a page I wanted to highlight, then started answering questions again. It’s designed for easy interaction-checking off, circling,short lists-but your responses will reveal significant insights. I love that the compact size of the book makes it purse-portable [okay, for you guys, definitely briefcase-able]. And my little ADD-self appreciates that it doesn’t require working through the pages in number order. Actually, it doesn’t even require finishing any page. But what it does require, if you intend it to truly be a reflection of who you are in relation to God, is honesty. The book, though, provides fresh and amusing slants to “oldish” questions, which makes it all the more endearing. For example, you know those “Today I will…” sentence completions which generally offer options like: not utter an unkind word, deliver baked goods to prisoners, pray unceasingly even during my sleep…? In Me, Myself and I AM, some of the responses for “Today I will. . .” are: not Google anything, be annoyed by people who look on the bright side, and at least once I will live as though God cannot see me. This is a book you want your family to find because it will truly capture the spiritual and emotional story of your life. This is a Christmas gift for all ages!
A new experience of God comes one question at a time in this fun and provocative journal. Made up entirely of insightful, profound, and occasionally ridiculous questions, Me, Myself, and I AM invites you to open to any page, open yourself to God, and be the author of your own story.
Questions range from spiritually intriguing—
You overhear God talking about you. What do hear him saying?
You are on a long car trip with a close friend who is not a Christian and the conversation turns to faith. What is your biggest fear about what your friend will ask or say?
Do you believe that all of Jesus’s followers have a responsibility to tell others about him?
to just plain fun—
If your life before you became a Christian were a movie, its title would be:
As Good as It Gets
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
It’s a Wonderful Life
Me, Myself, and I AM will entertain, inspire, and get you thinking about your spiritual life from brand new angles. Whether you use Me, Myself, and I AM as a reflective tool, a way to start conversations with friends and family, or as a spiritual time capsule to look back on years later, their own words will create a powerful journey of self-discovery.
