My Review:

I was excited to review Tranquility: A Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal. I like the thick hard cover and page thickness as well as the prayers and writing prompts. The page thickness makes for very little bleed through. I do not like how there is so much space that is already colored. Half filled in pages makes it difficult to choose my own color scheme. I would rather the book be completely blank so the reader could color as they desire. with that being said I think it is a nice prayer and reflection book. I would recommend using fine tip coloring tools as some of the areas are small. My teenage daughter took this book and started reading and coloring right away.

Book Review: I Am By Michele Cushatt

Book Description

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.

My Review

I Am By Michele Cushatt is a fantastic devotional that takes you on “A Journey to Knowing Who You Are Because of Who He Is” Author Michele Cushatt uses personal stories to relate the reader on how they are because of who God is. The book is separated into 6 parts: Creation, Exodus, Covenant, Presence, Rescue, and Revelation. Each section covers six sub topics such as I am loved, I am hungry, I am wanted, I am not alone, I am clean and I am satisfied. Each devotional has scripture, a personal story, a famous quote and something to leave the reader in thought of who they are in God.

I expected this book to be more of a study so I was a bit disappointed. But as a devotional, I Am By Michele Cushatt this book is a perfect fit. I suggest this book for anyone who is looking for a devotional based on personal stories to learn who they are in God.
