From the moment a woman wakes until she falls, exhausted, on her pillow, one question plagues her at every turn: Am I enough? The pressure to do more, be more has never been more intense. Online marketing. Self-help books. Movies, magazines and gym memberships. Even church attendance and social media streams have become a means of comparing ourselves to impossible standards. Am I pretty enough? Hip enough? Spiritual enough? We fear the answer is “No.” When a brutal bout with cancer changed how she looked, talked, and lived, Michele Cushatt embarked on a soul-deep journey to rediscover herself. The typical self-esteem strategies and positivity plans weren’t enough. Instead, she needed a new foundation, one that wouldn’t prove flimsy when faced with the onslaught of day-to-day life. With raw personal stories, rock-solid biblical teaching, and radical truths on which to rebuild your life, I Am will help you: • End the barrage of negative self-talk with an empowering new narrative. • Refuse to ride the rollercoaster of others’ opinions and start believing what God’s says about you. • Stop agonizing over past regrets and failures and make peace with God’s sovereign plan for your life. • Leave insecurity behind as you exchange temporary fixes for an identity established on God’s unchanging affection. I Am reminds us that our value isn’t found in our talents, achievements, relationships, or appearance. It is instead found in a God who chose us, sent us, and promised to be with us—forever.
Michele Cushatt is a person who knows personal pain and suffering. At the age of 39, she was diagnosed with tongue cancer. It came back twice. In the end, most of her tongue had to be removed. Skin and muscle from her left arm was used to reconstruct her tongue. Skin and muscle from her left leg was used to reconstruct her left arm. The loss of her original tongue means that she now has a speech impediment — which probably makes her life as a professional speaker very tough. She also cannot taste foods she cooks as well as she used to, if at all.
Cushatt is very well educated to write a devotional about knowing yourself. This book is meant to be read over a two month or 60-day period. I read the whole 60-day Devotional in like a week so I could review it for you all, and The way it is laid out you really need to do ONE devotion a day for 60 days. With everything Cushatt has been through she is a remarkable woman and you can tell this in her Devotional. I plan of doing the 60 day like your suppose to starting Feb. 1st and really grasp everything she has to offer. This was VERY well written and I do suggest this book to anyone and everyone!
