The Me I Want to Be: Becoming God's Best Version of You
Here are a few of my favorite quotes: "You are not your handiwork; your life is not your project. Your life is God Forgive the cheeseball-title, and this is a wonderful book. Your life is God's project. God thought you up, and he know what you were intended to be. But God won't discard your raw material. He creates, and then if there is a problem, he rescues. Are you kidding me? Where is that one? Poverty, holocausts, genocide, war -- people are given more than they can handle all the time! You will never be placed in a situation God can't handle.
Apr 13, Shell Belle rated it it was amazing. Fabulous book. I can't express how wonderful and useful it has been to me! The ME I Want to Be is a fresh look on all the aspects of Christian life, with the basis that God needs to change our hearts first to work through our outer lives. It's such a great message, because so many books today are focused on fixing our ACTIONS, rather than getting to the heart of the problem.
Ortberg provides many specific points about living the Christian life, but he makes it very clear that to truly be change Fabulous book. Ortberg provides many specific points about living the Christian life, but he makes it very clear that to truly be changed you have to go to God himself and get connected with him "in the flow". His ideas are like a breath of fresh air!
They are true, honest, and clear, but he is also very humorous and uses lots of stories to make his point. It's both entertaining and inspiring.

He isn't afraid to cut straight to the heart of the problem, but it is not in the accusing tone so many Christian thinkers have. It is as if he is on the journey with us-- messing up and needing grace-- because he is. That is what makes this book so powerful-- because he writes from experience. He is not afraid to be honest. Many Christian books promise the answers to life and revolutionary ideas that will change us should we just read the next pages. However, The Me I want to Be really does reach the level of inspiration it promises-- it is not emotion based, but rather solid logic we can actually hang on to and practice in our lives.
It's a book everyone needs to read-- it doesn't solve all of life's problems, but it sure does put you on the right track. I highly recommend this book! Aug 27, Karen rated it did not like it Shelves: faith. I don't think I have been so disappointed by a book for a long time. There are one or two parts of this which are worth holding on to but on the whole this is a too-simple 'self-help' book for evangelical Christians who want to be told how great they are, and how everything about them and what they do can be turned round to make it sound like God is totally backing them too - racing fast cars, spending every waking hour on your job, loving every mouthful that passes your lips etc.
If you've I don't think I have been so disappointed by a book for a long time. I used to like John Ortberg's take on things, not any more. Sep 07, Farah Hany rated it really liked it. Every time I picked up from where I left off, I somehow always found the answer to a question that's been lingering in my mind for days. It's weird. This book has some really insightful thoughts into the patterns we take regarding our spirituality, and ways to get back into 'the flow'.
I especially loved and learned a lot from the chapter on "trying softer". I'd totally recommend this book to anyone at a spiritual plateau or stuck with a disintegrated approach. The day I finished this book I turned to page one and started all over again. This is a book to read in small bites, not to gobble all at once. There is so much to digest.
It doesn't matter how many days it sits on my shelf, whenever I reopen this book, there is something that speaks to me - a lesson waiting - it seems - just for me. But when I start chatting about striving to be the best me God created me to be with friends, I find Ortberg's message is for everyone. God created you as a beautif The day I finished this book I turned to page one and started all over again. God created you as a beautiful unique individual, with certain talents, gifts and capabilities.
You were not designed to be like anyone else or to compete with anyone else or to compare yourself with anyone else. You were designed to let your own facets shine with the brilliance God gave you. Definately worth reading to remind yourself of this amazing gift and striving to use it the way God intended. View 1 comment. Aug 10, Susan Barnes rated it really liked it Shelves: adult-non-fiction. God is in the business of making us the best version of ourselves. We are to become the person God had in mind when he created us. John shares two questions which helps us assess the well-being of our souls.
Am I growing more easily discouraged these days? If peace is growing in me, I am less easily discouraged. Am I growing more easily irritated these days? If love is growing, I am less easily irritated. The rest of the book is about developing spiritual disciplines, but not spiritual disciplines as we know them.
Rather John looks at the uniquely different ways people grow spiritually and encourages his reader to find their own spiritual path which will help them become the person God intends. There is no simple, three-step guide to spiritual growth, God wants us to have a unique relationship with him so there is no one-size-fits-all approach.
A good read. I am a big fan of John Ortberg, and this book is another reason why. In this book, he applies biblical knowledge to everyday situations and challenges. Becoming the best "you" you can be is God's plan for you, and following these principles will bring tremendously more peace, harmony and happiness to your life and relationships.
He is equal parts intelligent, charming and winsome. He does not dumb down or simplify the themes, but illustrates them in a way that makes you understand how profound a I am a big fan of John Ortberg, and this book is another reason why. As Ortberg points out, it's all about your relationship with God and the Holy Spirit flowing through you. Reading this book will help you learn how you can achieve these!
Highly recommended! This book is amazing. It's become an annual read for me. God made you to flourish, but flourishing never happens by looking out for "number one. The world badly needs wise and flourishing human beings, and we are called to bring God's wisdom and glory to the world. The truth is, those who flourish always bring blessing to others -- and they can do so in the most un "Ironically, becoming this person will never happen if my primary focus is on me, just as no one becomes happy if their main goal is to be happy. The truth is, those who flourish always bring blessing to others -- and they can do so in the most unexpected and humble circumstances.
You find other people to be a source of wonder. They often bring you energy. When you are with them, you listen deeply. You are struck by their dreams. You bless. You are able to disclose your own thoughts and feelings in a way that invites openness in others. You quickly admit your errors, and you freely forgive.
