NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • This on-point guide to growing up by Instagram sensation Mari Andrew features “achingly vulnerable and completely relatable watercolor illustrations about relationships, heartbreak and the struggles of urban life” (The Washington Post). In the journey toward adulthood, it is easy to find yourself treading the path of those who came before you; the path often appears straight and narrow, with a few bumps in the road and a little scenery to keep you inspired. But what if you don’t want to walk a worn path? What if you want to wander? What if there is no map to guide you through the detours life throws your way? From creating a home in a new city to understanding the link between a good hair dryer and good self-esteem to dealing with the depths of heartache and loss, these tales of the twentysomething document a road less traveled—a road that sometimes is just the way you’re meant to go. Praise for Am I There Yet? “Equal parts memoir and illustrated guidebook, it chronicles Andrew’s journey through adulthood as she navigates love and heartbreak, professional indecision and success, and personal struggles.”—Refinery29 “Using her artistic skills to illustrate thought-provoking essays, Andrew inspires readers to take the path less traveled in life.”—CNN “The illustrations . . . are often packed with truths about dating, self-care, careers, and all the secret thoughts you never say out loud.”—Elle “This uplifting book is filled with essays and illustrations that will fill you with so much hope as you move forward with any big life change.”—Bustle “Her illustrations will resonate with anyone who has ever had a crush, went on a date, or felt the sting of heartbreak.”—The Independent

Humanity has begun to emerge from the outworn idea that sees its existence as a conglomeration of separate personalities, into a more refined vision which views the planet as one mighty being with one heart and a united soul. We are finally coming to terms with the reality of our interdependence and also with the fact that our very survival depends on our ability to recognize our indivisibility. As we continue to mature to a place where we can both understand and live in this intrinsic oneness, a new being evolves. This emergent creature has the ability to eclipse what we as separate individuals can ever hope to achieve. As we live and move in unison, we find that our human consciousness blossoms into a full-fledged planetary awareness which opens up to us an entirely new field of infinite possibilities.

Have you ever wondered if God has a plan for your life, or if the events of your life are just random and chaotic? Have you ever thought about the importance of the relationships you have with family and friends, and why certain people are even in your life? Have you thought about where you will spend eternity? It has been said that God has a plan for your life, and its a good plan. Using his own life experiences, and those of his parents, James W. Meyer takes you on a very personal and emotional journey of faith and trust. He explores events that happened and the ultimate effect of those events that have led him to his current place in life; the very place God always intended for him to be. Meyer reminds us that God also places family and friends in our lives for a very special reason, and we shouldnt take themor any of the other blessings from Godfor granted. Meyer was inspired to write this book following the death of his beloved mother, and he takes readers through the recesses of their thoughts and feelings and shows a path out as one whos walked it. Later in the book, Meyer takes the reader on a beautiful and simple journey through the Gospel and salvation. With his simple, but deep, faith genuinely expressed through his stories, Meyer brings readers to a soft landing in the arms of God and the assurance of His purpose in your life.
