Throughout Scripture, God reveals himself as the great I Am. He does not define himself with reference to any thing, person, or trait. He is, and that is enough. Women find themselves in a far different situation. When we introduce ourselves, we typically describe ourselves in terms of our relationships (the wife, mother, daughter, sister, or friend of someone else) or in ...more

Jerusha Clark’s recent book Every Piece of Me offers insight into each of Jesus’ own I AM statements. Although not a Bible study, Clark connects Christ’s character to our identities in order to make His statements more personal for women in particular.

Most of the chapters follow a simple but unexpected formula:

(1) Clark begins the chapters with a basic story
(2) Then she shares one of Jesus’ I AM statements, like that He is the bread of life.
(3) Next, she offers insight into what that means. For

Clark explores the seven “I am” statements of Jesus with the aim of showing that He is the answer to all we need and it is in Him alone we find our true identity. Questions for personal reflection are given at the end of each chapter as are a couple of books for additional reading.

Clark is refreshingly honest about her struggle with depression and an eating disorder. She faced postpartum depression twice, was diagnosed Bipolar II, and suffered a subsequent breakdown. This is an encouraging secti

Review
Clark’s new book Every Piece of Me, Shattering Toxic Beliefs and Discovering the Real you, is a book written for women. In her ministry she has found women to have “years of unfulfilled dreams, hope and expectations that have turned bitter (Every Piece of Me, Shattering Toxic Beliefs and Discovering the Real You, by Jerusha Clark, Baker Books, 2017, p. 16), that are weighed down by messages that say “you’ve heard and sensed for as long as you can remember: not good enough, too much this an

Every Piece Of Me: Shattering Toxic Beliefs And Discovering The Real You by Jerusha Clark is written for women who find themselves so caught up in their identity within society that they forget their identity within Christ. Yes, you are a mother or a daughter or a sister or a wife - but who are you under that mask that the rest of the world sees? Who are you behind closed doors, when it's just you and God left in the room?

Jerusha helps women come to terms with their feelings of not living up to

"Every Piece of Me" studied several of Jesus's "I Am" statements and linked them to various issues with which women often struggle. The author talked about each "I am" statement, explained the context of what was going on when Jesus said it, then talked about a related issue that women deal with. She also suggested some things you can do to shift your outlook into alignment with how God views you.

For example, she talked about the "I am the bread of life" statement. Talk about eating led to talk

I was surprised by all the negative reviews on this book. I loved it and found it such a good reminder to not let my toxic thoughts take over. I find it very easy to get caught up in negative thoughts. Maybe the reviewers didn’t quite understand what it’s like to work in ministry and fight those comparisons, pressures and everything. Maybe they aren’t perfectionists. I think anything that reminds me of Gods love and affirms that we can change our lives through your thoughts which leads to action ...more

"Every Piece of Me" by Jerusha Clark explores the topic of discovering the real you. We, as women, are usually defined as "wife, mother, sister, friends, etc. Clark shows that are identity is not wrapped up in those titles. She also explores other issues that may haunt us, such as fear, bitterness, busyness and toxic thoughts.

I appreciated Clark's honesty about the issues she deals with. She tells true stories of her own life. There are some good tidbits to learn in these pages, however, it got
