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 werent enough. Instead, she needed a new foundation, one that wouldnt 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 Gods says about you.
• Stop agonizing over past regrets and failures and make peace with Gods sovereign plan for your life.
• Leave insecurity behind as you exchange temporary fixes for an identity established on Gods unchanging affection.
I Am reminds us that our value isnt 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 usforever.
Michele Cushatt is a successful speaker and author who shares about the complicated intersections of real faith and real life, speaking for Women of Faith, Compassion International, Focus on the Family, and Hearts at Home. She and her husband, Troy, have been married for fourteen years and share a stepfamily of three boys, and more recently have added three small children, just as they thought they were preparing to enter the empty-nest phase of family life. They live in Denver, Colorado. Website/Blog: http://www.MicheleCushatt.com
Michele Cushatt has earned the right to be heard. Period. If youre looking for a couple of months worth of platitudes, youve chosen the wrong book. Textured by Micheles physical and spiritual scars from battles you wouldnt wish on your worst enemy, I Am will both convict and thrill you.
Using vulnerable personal stories, insightful biblical teaching, and soul- searching reflection, Michele Cushatt helped me reframe my life through the lens of who God is and who I am because I am His. Through this powerful sixty-day journey, I found hope and courage to let God rewrite the story I am living and the story I am telling myself every day.
If you ever struggle as I do with the question, Am I enough? this book is for you. Michele didnt learn these powerful lessons from the comfort of an armchair as a spectator of the lives of others. The personal, practical wisdom she shares came from deep, dark places and will bring light and healing to all who dive in.
On the pages of I Am you will find you are wanted, heard, healed, enough, safe, and that you belong. You will not close this book the same as when you started!
With an honest, compelling, and fun voice, Michele Cushatt invites us into a thorough understanding of who God has made and called us to be. This sixty-day read can make a difference of us, whether were sixteen or sixty years old. Come and see yourself as God sees you!
Michele Cushatt is a beautiful messenger from the deep well of personal trial. I needed her words in this devotional book: to remind me of who I am and of the great I Am who changes everything. Grace and truth are found in these pages. Thank you, Michele, for this most timely word---one I will read over and over again.
When life gets hard, we too easily lose sight of who we are. It seems the world screams lies at us while God whispers truth to our hearts. On the pages of this book, Michele brings a megaphone to Gods voice so we can silence the lies and grab hold of the truth. Let these words soak into your soul so you can stand firm in who you really are.

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.

jbrennan5 Stars Out Of 5Paradigm shift!January 25, 2017jbrennanQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The chaotic nature of the world can skew our thinking about who and what we are. Written from a place of vulnerability and openness, Michele lovingly challenges us to identify and rediscover who we are in Christ through brief daily passages that speak directly to our hearts past our brokenness and strife. More than altering our thoughts and attitudes, this is a wholesale realignment in our approach to who we are and recognition that all that we are meant to be is based on who God is and how He is manifested in us.

Tell us a little about yourself. Raised by two parents who came to faith right after I was born, I have a lifetime of education and experience in the Christian faith. However, it wasn't until I experienced hardship and suffering (including divorce, blended family, foster/adoption and three bouts of cancer) that my faith became less of a comfortable habit and more of a desperate lifeline. Pain propelled me into pilgrimage, where I wrestled with significant questions and doubts and, even today, continue to stumble my way deeper into the heart of God and the heart of faith. It's been a simultaneously grueling and exquisite journey.
I am the wife of Troy and mama to six children, ages 10 to 25. A mountain-girl at heart, I live in Denver, Colorado and spend as much time as possible reading books and exploring the outdoors, preferably when I can do both at the same time.
What was your motivation behind this project? When I first developed the concept for this book, I had no idea how personal it would soon become. After working with teenage girls for years, I saw their desperate search for significanceand the many ways they tried to find that significance in the wrong places. Thus, I set out to write a book that would be somewhat of an anchor for them, a reminder about their intrinsic worth and value as a child of God. However, a couple years later, I found myself dealing with a serious cancer recurrence that would require a brutal surgery and treatment regimen that would permanently alter my physical, emotional and spiritual life. Much like the teenage girls I mentored, I daily wrestled with a single question: Who am I? Ultimately, this is a question we all askand need answered. Thus, I wrote "I Am" as I was searching for the answer for myself. This makes the book simultaneously deeply personal and widely applicable.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? A vast amount of time, energy and resources are poured into the pursuit of value and significance. Whether its self-help strategies or how-to plans, we waste no little effort or expense trying to do better, be better, achieve more. This me-centric, success-oriented striving marks every aspect of our current culture. Behind all of this sits a single fear: that our lives wont matter, that one day our names and legacies will evaporate and be forgotten. But we were never meant to build an identity; we were made to receive it. We carry the presence and purpose of the I AM. Weve been chosen by Him, named by Him, sent by Him, and covered by Him. That means, you and I can stop chasing after our value, and instead receive it.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? All of us, from the moment of our birth, are broken. The problem is, we typically sleep-walk through life banking on our wholeness until somethinga loss, diagnosis, crisis, calamitywakes us up from our slumber and forces us to see the actual state of our bodies and soul. For me, a string of cancer diagnoses and resulting surgeries and treatment left my body disabled and broken. One day I could eat and speak and sing and swallow. The next day I could do none of those things. What Ive been learning over the last couple years while writing this book is that now my physical body matches my spiritual body. I can no longer hide the brokenness thats always been present on the inside, the brokenness that lies within all of us. Some moments, this brings me deep grief. And then I remember Jesus words: It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. (Matthew 9:12) Jesus came only for the broken people! This not only eases the temptation to try and appear whole, its gives me great strength to fully embrace this broken body and soul as a means for redemption and the greater glory of God himself.
