I Am Found (Book Review and a Give Away)



Today I'm sharing my review of I am Found by Laura Dingman, printed by Moody Publishers.  First let me say I really like the feel of this book in my hand.  Yes, I know that sounds corny, but most paperback books are slick and bland.   This book has a textured front and back cover that just feels good in my hands, and the shades of teal and aqua in the book are cool and inviting.  

I Am Found (Quitting the Game of Hide and Seek with God and Others) is a 6-week women's Bible study that addresses being free from shame and finding confidence in Christ.   There are several pages of "introduction" to each week, headlining the study topic for the week.  Then, there are 5 daily lessons to walk you through the weeks study.

Weekly topics included:
Fig Leaves Don't Hide Anything
Know Your Enemy
Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are!
You Are Not Alone
You Are Enough
You Are Found


The author does a lovely job of using stories from her own life to help illustrate her topics.  These illustrations are not the "oh I've got it all together" type, nor are they they the "let me tell you in great detail every sordid thing I've ever done" type of stories.  Instead these are situation we face in every day life, the recurring things that the enemy uses to try to make us feel ashamed of ourselves and keep up from experiencing what God has for us.

About the author:
Laura Dingman spends most of her time creating and leading worship experiences that help connect people with the story of God. She has served in vocational ministry as the Creative Arts Director at The Creek, a large church in Indianapolis, for over a decade.

She loves to show people where their story intersects with God’s story. She enjoys belting Broadway, laughing hysterically, reading great books, and living life with her favorite two people in the whole world, her husband, Matt, and her spunky daughter, Abigail. She is the author of Life Rhythms: Learning to Live in God-Centered Time and I Am Found: Quitting the Game of Hide and Seek with God and Others.
