God has dreams—just for you Becoming Myself is a hope-filled book for anyone who wonders if her life will ever change—if she will ever change.In Stasi Eldredge’s most intimate book yet, she shares her own struggles with self-worth, weight, and her past as she shows readers how God is faithfully unveiling who we truly are. Stasi urges you to lay down your past thoughts about yourself and receive God’s incredible dreams for you instead. We cannot heal ourselves. We cannot become ourselves by ourselves. But we are not by ourselves. The King of love wants to help us become. God desires to restore us—the real us. As he heals our inner life, he calls us to rise to the occasion of our lives. The most important journey any woman can take is the journey into becoming her true self through the love of God. It's a beautiful paradox. The more of God’s you become, the more yourself you become—the “self” he had in mind when he thought of you before the creation of the world. Discover your truest self—the woman God created you to be—in Becoming Myself.

Disability rights advocate Darrell Lynn Jones worked for the civil rights and empowerment of people with disabilities. But she didn’t recognize her professional skills could be used to live effectively with her own chronic illness until she connected the dots between her physical journey and her spiritual journey.

The author came to see her illness as a soul journey—meaning her human traits, including chronic illness, are simply Spirit immersed in a physical experience, using time and space as a playground for creation and discovery. Becoming MySelf offers a fresh look at the new-age idea of creating your own reality and suggests the reality one already has is brimming with gifts and opportunities. This perspective helps you end the discontentment you may have concerning illness, disability, aging, and dying—and the belief that we are victims if we’re sick.

“An empowering memoir/self-help book for anyone contending with a hidden disability or chronic illness.” (Kirkus Indie Review)

When author Margot S. Biestman was born in 1931, her grandmother told her she came into the world beautiful because she’d been kissed by an angel. The proof: her two dimples, one on each blessed cheek. In Becoming Myself, Biestman offers an extensive and insightful commentary on how personal and professional experiences lead to self-examination and growth. Along with examples of her poems and other creative expressions, she reflects on a youth living among a family of artists, growing up in San Francisco, and becoming a teacher. Biestman’s artistic nature has informed her life’s journey as a maverick who chose not to be boxed in by the social environment she was born into. Becoming Myself: An Eighty-Seven-Year Journey of Engaging the Senses through Breath and Creative Expression resonates with the courage to stay true to oneself and to forge a different and inspiring path.

-'Now with God's help, I shall become myself.'Spiritual growth is a pursuit. It does not happen naturally or without effort. Just like the athlete who trains for a competition, we too must train our hearts and minds to be like Jesus. Our spiritual muscles, like our physical ones, become weak and ineffective when they are not stretched and exercised regularly. Often, Christians may find they are caught up in the 'generality' of living a religious lifestyle, but to truly become the Lord's, we must give him time to work with us. Our days may be so filled with activity and service that we seldom take the time to ask ourselves who it is that God created us to be. If you long for the discipline, order, and focus that Christ speaks of in the Word, then you are longing to discover who God created you to be. See yourself through God's eyes in Becoming Myself, Becoming His.Author Kay Watson lives in Pensacola, Florida, with Scott, her husband of twenty-eight years, and two sons. She has taught in church for over twenty-five years, written curriculum for women and children, and has served as the Women's Ministry Coordinator for the Gateway Church of Christ.

’Nang enthokpa society dudei nang chenningasu kem kaide nattraga nangna adugi society duda change purakpa ama(You can escape from the society if they are pushing you away or you can be the one who brought changes to the society.).’ It was my sister’s words that brought me here. It was one of the painful nights that I went through, and it still hurts to write about it. Growing up in a middle-class family as the youngest child among 5, I received the love in all forms. I grew up playing with the boys, and it wasn’t a surprise to everyone when they found out that I had a girlfriend because I was always a boy, and there were no surprises of me coming out. Of course, like everyone else, they tried to stop me from becoming myself when I was young. I mean, who would happily accept when their sweet daughter is becoming a son? And at school, since I didn’t know how to wear the school uniform, which is Phanek(traditional wrap-around for women), my grandmother had to tie the ends so that it won’t fall off and would untie it when I came back from school for four years. I can’t imagine that I had my bathroom schedule so tight that I never peed for 8 hrs. And I don’t fit in the category, or my character doesn’t tick the box where the society sets for the transmen that they should be good at sports. I’m the total opposite. I’m a writer as I tag myself with a very sensitive heart, and I like to think of myself as a romantic guy. I like the idea of being in love and waiting for her with flowers or watching the sunrise together or holding her hand while driving to a quiet place we only know or the art of writing love. But when I found the person who shared everything I wanted, I was smashed right in the face. I kept questioning myself, and for a while, I was lost. All the while I was blaming society, I realized that we couldn’t make everyone in the whole world accept us, but there are people who do, and that’s it. And thanks to all the books that I’ve read that put words on my subconscious that success is not just about winning, it’s about losing too, but most importantly, it’s about how the Phoenix rises from the ashes. And I found myself again, and this time I was already fit in my idea of success. Back then, my definition of success was to live financially free, but now it changed. And this time, it all makes sense. I was becoming myself, and no amount of money would make me that happy when I had my first shot of Testosterone. You have no idea how happy I was when my voice broke down for the first time. And no one would make me that happy when I saw these teeny tiny beards growing up. I finally started getting comfortable with my body, and I realized success is not about the number of digits in my account or the number of security personnel walking next to me or the number of cars or the fame. It’s about how I perceived myself, how I think of myself and The Art Of Becoming Myself. That is my definition of success, and this is my success story. And my story is not a complaint or resentment towards the society that I went through shit. I’m just trying to show you how we feel about things, and after all, you and I are human beings. I’m just trying to prove that we are normal people with feelings and emotions like you guys have. I want the world to know that we have a heart that can love someone too.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I had never had a massage, and the thought of some stranger touching my body was not an appealing one to me. I was mortified. I had to go. It was his mother’s gift to me. I was grateful to receive it, but I was also embarrassed. #2 I had experienced change, and it had been miraculous. I had quit smoking pot, doing drugs, and drinking alcohol, and I had given up eating sugar. But I had not delivered on my promise to lose weight, and that made me feel like a failure as a woman. #3 We often fail to change because we are so consumed with our past failures. We have been conditioned to believe that continuing to live in our weaknesses is not our destiny. But it is not too late. It is not too hard. You are not too much. God’s mercies are new every morning. #4 We need to understand that shame and discipline are not agents of change. They may propel us onto the road of change, but they will only lead us to a never-ending roundabout. We need to rely on God’s grace to bring about the change we desire.

Being a Rockefeller, Becoming Myself

A pioneering philanthropist and daughter of American royalty reveals what it was like to grow up in one of the world’s most famous families. The great-granddaughter of John D. Rockefeller, Eileen Rockefeller learned in childhood that while wealth and fame could open any door, they could not buy a feeling of personal worth. The privileges of having servants and lavish summer homes were offset by her parents’ thoughtful yet firm lessons in social obligation, at times by her mother’s dark depressions and mercurial moods, and the competition for attention among her siblings. In adulthood, Rockefeller has yearned to be seen not as an icon but as a woman and mother with a normal life, and like all of us, she had to learn to find her own way. Being a Rockefeller, Becoming Myself is an affirmation of how family shapes our identity and the ways we contribute to the larger family of life, regardless of our origins.
