From the Author
Yes? Me, too. In fact, for most of my life, I've been running away from the real me and, instead, chasing this image of who I wanted to be.
I wanted to be this amazing wife and mother, a smart businesswoman, a world-changing Jesus follower. I wanted my life to matter, to make a difference.
Problem is, most days I feel about as far away from those things as the sea is from the sky. No matter how hard I try, I just can't seem to get it right. I wake up early, I stay up late, but the to-dos are never done. I start the day determined to love my husband and children better, but then I want to wring their necks usually before dinner. I read my Bible and pray, but I keep blowing it, making mistakes, and acting anything but Jesus-like.
The short of it is this: As much as I put on a confident front, most days I struggle to like who I am.
For me, this struggle got more personal when a cancer diagnosis and resulting surgery and treatment radically altered my body, my relationships, and my abilities. Then, like a hurricane forever changing the landscape, I no longer recognized myself. I felt lost in my own life and struggled to find any worth.
Our stories may be different, but the tension is the same. The pressure to do more, be more has never been more intense. But, sooner or later, something interrupts our efforts at significance.
And in spite of all the promises of modern self-esteem strategies and self-help plans, simply attacking the symptoms of our dissatisfaction isn't enough. We need to find our way back home, to the core of who we are, who we've always been, from the very beginning.
This is why I wrote I Am: A 60-day Journey to Knowing Who You Are Because of Who He Is. Because you and I, we've been buying into the wrong standards, believing the wrong promises. I Am turns the words of God himself into our clearest mirror, revealing a value that cannot be affected by either our best offerings or our worst failures.
It's time we stop chasing after value and instead receive it. Join me, and let's find our way home, together.
