The Me I Want to Be by John Ortberg—the bestselling author of When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box; God Is Closer Than You Think; and The Life You’ve Always Wanted—will help you discover spiritual vitality like never before as you learn to “live in the flow of the spirit.”

But if God has a perfect vision for your life, why does spiritual growth seem so difficult? John Ortberg has some intriguing answers to that question, and he has organized his thoughts and God’s words into a straightforward and timely guide for living your best life in The Me I Want to Be. This book will show how God’s perfect vision for you starts with a powerful promise. All those who trust in God “will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit” (Jeremiah 17:7–8).

Ortberg urges you to recognize your brokenness, understand that God is the project manager, and follow his directions. The author first helps gauge your spiritual health and measure the gap between where you are now and where God intends you to be. Then he provides detailed tasks and exercises to help you live in the flow of the Spirit, circumventing real-world barriers—pain and sorrow, temptations, self-doubt, sin—to flourish even in a dark and broken world. As you start living in the flow, you will feel a deeper connection with God; a growing sense of joy; an honest recognition of your brokenness; less fear, more trust; a growing sense of being “rooted in love”; a deeper sense of purpose God invites you to join him in crafting an abundant and joy-filled life. The Me I Want to Be shows you how to graciously accept his invitation.

    " good read -- especially with a group or partner to extend the conversation. Ortberg isn't new to this game and here he flexes the opportunity to accentuate the positive. it can be life changing but more of a self-realization than a change book. "

    " I love the way John Ortberg writes! He's such a story teller, and concepts easy to understand by giving concrete examples. Want to be come the person God would have you to be? Read this book! "

    " Excellent. John Ortberg at his best, encouraging Christians - new or old - to be the best version of themselves rather than trying to live up to anyone else's ideals. Sections on finding our identity, redeeming our time, transforming our experience, and more. Personal anecdotes enliven the text, and my only minor criticism is the rather tatty looking diagrams that were a mixture of computer-generated and (apparently) badly hand-drawn. "

    " I just can't seem to connect with Ortberg. I'm reading this with a group and find that the book does not lend itself to deep conversations. I'm Skimming the remaining chapters before group each week, and then will donate the book. This keeps happening with me and Ortberg, so I should have known better. There is just something about the way he handles his subject matter that bugs me. "
