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.

I Am is filled with glorious nuggets of truth from the Word of God that will change your inner dialogue surrounding your worth. I found myself in tears at times because I didn't realize how much my soul yearned to hear what was written on these pages. We all need to be reminded of who we are, how much we are valued, and why we are here. Michele takes her readers on a real and raw journey of discovery that leads straight to the Father's heart.
Michele is a beautiful person and excellent author. If you don't know her story, I encourage you to pick up her first book, Undone: Making Peace with the Unexpected Life. This book deepened my faith in God, encouraged me as I walked through the stillbirth of my firstborn, and changed my outlook on life. A must read for anyone that feels lost, lonely, and confused by pain. (Posted on 1/24/2017)

So, you are on this journey called L" if" E.
Grab a cup of coffee, or a cup of hot tea, this book is going to grab you where it hurts, help you devote yourself to prayer and yet best to know that God has entered the scene.
You are enough=God 's chosen to lead, open up and visit the many places of the desert roads most would quit before they turned thirty.

As you read, you will know to who you belong and to whom you belong, by the time you reach page nine, faith and trust. Percept upon percept.

Plan to cry and laugh and find a new view ahead each day’s journey. There's a verse each day to soak, with hope in the middle and a knowing in the end. Filled with scriptures to fill you up and lead the way. what an honor it is to journey with my dear new friend, Michele Cushatt, who has poured out her heart, page after page adding to L"if"E. This part that spoke to me: I must continue to learn.
Who I AM?
I Am Seen
And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Matthew 10:30
I will never outgrow God's classroom. His eye is on the sparrow. You have a place at the King's Table. Covenant. You will always eat at My Table. The King already has a place with your name on it. And one with mine. We no longer need to struggle and strain to squeeze into relationships. That isn't where we're supposed to pull up a chair anyway. instead, as we love and lead, we can settle into the one chair made especially for us. Secure once and for all. Only then will we have eyes for the invisible.
O’how powerful, are the words of the Author of I AM. A voice of David and a table filled with misfits called by a King.
Psalm 91:14, I Am Rescued, because he loves me...I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges My name.
Page after page you will "be becoming" all the most wonderful radical, biblical teachings, personal stories rebuilding your heart from the inside out.
Reading I AM, you will come away with you are enough, and who He says you are. I hope Michele Cushatt, will get to writing a daily devotional to go along with this new book adventure to share together with our coffee and hot tea, to journey together with friends. It will open your thoughts to trust again. To reveal your most touched emotions, created and healed for the King of glory.
WHO AM I: ENOUGH.
