Book Review: I Am Found: Quitting the Game of Hide and Seek with God and Others by Laura Dingman

From the Back Cover

Are you tired of battling shame?
Long to be truly known and deeply loved?¿
Hesitant to show others the real you?

We are all made for connection, but many of us live with walls up and hearts closed. What would it take for us to let go and stand tall and unashamed?

I Am Found guides us in just that. This six-week Bible study on shame and identity explores how we can own our stories, trust God’s affections, and relate honestly with Him and others.

Each week begins with biblical teaching and is followed by five days of guided reflection. Drenched in Scripture, and with plenty of space to journal and savor biblical truths, I Am Found is a personal journey of transformation through God’s Word.

Laura Dingman invites you to build your life on a beautiful, liberating truth: Jesus loves us in our weakness, but He doesn’t leave us there.

My Review:

I Am Found is a 6-week Bible Study that helps us to learn that the reason behind why we hide is shame, guilt and humiliation. Each day has several scripture readings, many questions to journal what the reader takes from each study and a daily prayer. I like how all the Scripture and activities to do are in blue ink while the author’s writing is in black ink. The paper quality is perfect for a journal. The author divides this study into six chapters each including six days worth of study: an introduction and five sessions. Week 1: Fig Leaves Don’t Hide Anything, Week 2: Know Your Enemy, Week 3: Come Out, Come Out, Whereever Yu Are!, Week 4: You Are Not Alone, Week 5: You Are Enough, Week 6: You Are Found.
I recommend this Bible Study to anyone who needs encouragement about who they are in Christ because this book greatly encouraged me.

Im a stay at home, homeschooling mom of six awesome kids. But for fun on the side like doodles in the margin, I like to sew, edit books, design websites, make homeschool resources, study Biblical dream interpretation, decorate cakes, and make pinatas along with many other things including graphic design. I love books and researching. There is always something to learn.
