Me, Myself, I Am...and a give-away.

Check out this interesting book (THIS WOULD MAKE A FAB GIFT!) Multnomah sent me...

Me Myself & I AM: A Unique Question and Answer Book: The Story of You and God Created by Matthew Peters in partnership with Elisa Stanford and Multnomah Books

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 your own 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’ 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.

The reviews are in:

Margaret: I was slightly surprised when I recieved Me, Myself, and I AM. I was expecting a book, but when I opened it up, I found a journal of sorts. And it turned out to be an interesting experience. I'm not one for navel-gazing as a rule, but serious introspection once in a while is a good thing. The guiding questions were thought-provoking, ranging from my life right now, through spiritual life, momentous events in my life, and thinking about the future.

Ben: Me, Myself & I am is an interesting take on journaling. It’s short in page number but long in the amount of content and journaling you will work through. Me, Myself and I am is a well thought through journal as it gives you a chance to look back on your life with God and reminisce on where He’s taken you, what He’s brought you through, and where He’s leading you.

I have three copies to give-away...Answer this question from the book in the comment section below (I chose a question near and dear to our Xer hearts) and I'll randomly select three winners on Dec. 11th.

I have the opportunity to live in my current world but with no exposure to television, movies, the Internet, or magazines. I would/wouldn't agree to this arangement because...?

I would agree to it, but not without struggling with my hands first. They love the keyboard of my Blackberry phone, and I think they'd reach up and slap me - repeatedly. Then, I'd chat with them, patting each palm and soothing them with these words. God has told me to go and tell, not to go and text. This would force me to speak about my Savior, to knock on neighbor's doors, to move my feet in connecting with family and friends -- face to face. Imagine that, a world that speaks to each other, prays with each other, helps, soothes and reassures each other. No technology, magazine, book or Internet can hug another human, only I can do that.

And yes, this would make my 'hands' happier in the long run, and more useful.

Pam, this is great!!! I agree it's SO much easier to text!!! :-) But then God really gets to work when we touch--reach out!

Definitely not! I am so inspired by the things that I come across randomly. God can teach you so many lessons with things seemingly unrelated to spirituality at first glance. I can't begin to think how much I've grown- just by watching TV shows. In addition, if there is no exposure to these things, you couldn't use them in your ministry either. That's only fair...and look at how much effectiveness THAT cuts out. Christians are already so far behind in the world of media and entertainment that it's abysmal. We should be leaders and putting out the best products- not just hanging around doing nothing until Jesus comes. We need to be taking people with us!

I wouldn't agree to it. I could probably do without the TV, but not the internet and phone. My family and i live very far from eactother, the only way we've been able to really connect is via the internet and phone. I believe God got us to this point of technology for a reason. I need my family and friends to help me through everythingSo, even though I only see them a couple times a year, we're able to remain very close. We've even decided to do a bible study together via internet chat. How cool is that????

What a great give-away!!!!

I wouldn't agree. With the exception of the presidential debates and the olymics we don't watch T.V. I have never text anyone, and at $10.00 a ticket , rarely go to movies. But magazines and the internet are a great source of information. If you are going to be in the battle, you had better know whom you are fighting. If, as writers, we want to be relevant to our readers, we need to be aware of the culture in which they live.

Tough question. I could definatley live with out television, movies, magazines, as long as I have a few good books and The Good Book. I could probably live without the internet, though it does make life easier. However, giving up cell phones would be much more difficult. Not that I talk on it often, but it is nice to know my kids can get ahold of me when they need me. Can't wait to check out the new book. What a great idea for journaling!

I would not agree, I love all those things & would be hard to give up!
