Synopsis

It’s All About You.

Open this book to any page and take a new look at you, where you’ve been on your spiritual journey, and where you’re going. Out loud, in private, in order, or backwards all the way, this book of questions will have you laughing, praying, thinking, and maybe asking a question or two yourself. It’s a creative and revealing way to get to know God–and you–better than ever. So go ahead. Grab a pen. And get ready to get real.

Excerpt

You are holding a unique question and answer book that will help you tell the very personal story of you and God. We take the title from the well-known passage in the Old Testament in which God tells Moses his name: “‘I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you’” (Exodus 3:14).


You can use Me, Myself, & I AM in many ways: as a map to explore your faith, as a lens to focus on your relationship with Jesus, as a fun way to let others get to know you, or as a starting point for important conversations with family and friends. What you record becomes a spiritual time capsule you can revisit months or years from now to see how you used to think and feel, who you used to be.


Be sure to answer questions not with what you feel you should say but with what you really (like it or not) think. After all, you’re writing down the story of your life. You’ll find that some questions are fun, some are serious, and some that appear to be light turn out to be the most thought provoking of all. Answer as many questions as you can, but if a question doesn’t feel right for you, skip it and move on. If you run out of space for an answer,
you might want to use the blank pages in the back of the book to continue writing.


So relax, take your time, and enjoy the experience of getting to know yourself and God in new and deeper ways.
—Matthew Peters and Elisa Stanford
