Me, Myself, & I AM

Book: Me Myself & I AM

Author: Created by Matthew Peters in partnership with Elisa Stanford

MY THOUGHTS: This book is different than anything you've ever 'read' before. It is really a combination of a journal and a study guide that allows, actually requires, deep introspection about your relationship with Christ. The questions vary between deep, heavy spiritual issues and items that are just pure fun. And it turns out that sometimes the most insightful qeustions are the fun ones. This would be an amazing tool to take with you if you had an opportunity for a private retreat, and it's also good for those times when you just have a few minutes. You can answer a question or two, and then read others that require more contemplation so you have something to think about until you get the next quiet time.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who feels stuck in his/her relationship with Christ or for anyone who is anxious to continuously grow in his/her Christian life!

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 yourown story.

Questions range from spiritually intriguing—
You overhear God talking about you. What do hear him saying?

to thought-provoking—
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?

to challenging—
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:
Animal House
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.
