Our stories anchor us as we experience the vicissitudes of life. They strengthen us, inspire us, and encourage us as we grow older.
This book offers Jesus' story as a real-life mirror to our own stories, ultimately making God s story, our story, and our story, God's story.
From Begotten, to Suffering Death, to Glory, and the Life of the World to Come, the author uses spiritual reflections, poetry, and the Nicene Creed to give new meaning to real-life circumstances of identity, pain, family life, dealing with depression, and ultimate healing. Becoming Who I Am encourages us to embrace and tell our whole stories and to discover our divine capacity for true life transformation and joy. A fresh connection between the Nicene Creed and real life
