Who God Says You Are is a collection of writings on Christian themes of devotion and self-help by author Michelle Berkey. Set out with the initial goal for its readers to ‘Live in the Confidence and Freedom of Your True Identity’, this book tackles the concepts of culture and outside influences, and the negative effects that those factors can have on our lives. Rather than being defined by societal and economic standards, we are introduced to the biblical teachings of God, and his plan for humanity is explained. With the purpose of serving him and others and the knowledge that he has love for everyone on Earth regardless of their situation, readers can find comfort and inner peace.

For Christians facing tests of faith and difficult times in their lives, author Michelle Berkey has delivered a compassionate and well thought-out set of reminders that can help them through any kind of personal identity crisis. The author’s voice really shines on every page, with a soft-spoken narration that offers help and guidance from God without ever being overbearing or controlling. The combination of empathy, counseling, and biblical elements is very well balanced, and the organization of the book allows readers to start slowly with their own personal issues and beliefs about themselves, before expanding to a wider world view later on. Overall, Who God Says You Are is sure to make a very helpful bedside book for anyone who feels the need for God’s love and support in their lives.

This 12-week devotional study guide, Who God Says You Are: Live in the Confidence and Freedom of Your True Identity by Michelle Berkey, will help to position you onto the path that you were meant to travel. Michelle has taken her journey as a perfectionist, a people-pleaser, going through a midlife identity crisis, divorce, being a mother, bankruptcy and being a business owner to help the reader to learn and understand that all things work together for good. Yes, you may not see it, realize it or understand it, but it does. For the twelve weeks, the material is broken down in simple bite sizes. This way it will be easier for you to read, chew, meditate on and digest in addition to prayer and journaling each day and more if needed. All of these steps are essential in grasping the material and really getting it into your Spirit. Embrace this experience by allowing God to speak to you through this journey.

For me, I loved how Michelle began the book with "Let the details of the artwork throughout the book remind you that your identity begins with God’s work of creation." This is what Michelle tells the reader about the artwork on the book cover, which immediately captured my attention and made me fall in love with this devotional study guide. As Michelle states, in seeking God's best you can only do it by ridding yourself of preconceived notions about your life. To get the best that the guide has to offer, be honest and do the work as Michelle instructs; it will change your life for the better. Also, if you want to be guided in the direction and purpose that God has designed for you, and get your best life, start this 12-week devotional study guide today. For those of you that want to experience more of this guide but lack the time to sit down and read it, there is an audiobook available along with a few extra treats from the author.

With so many ways through which we can be defined, it is easy to feel lost and believe that we are never good enough. Through the Bible, God has a lot to say about us and how He sees us. Michelle Berkey’s Who God Says You Are: Live in the Confidence and Freedom of our True Identity explores the Word in a fresh way while placing focus on specific life-changing terms and descriptions whereby God defines us. Using accessible language, devotions are created that explain in a simple yet profound way, God’s truth of who we are. The devotions are founded on the finished work of Christ and what Jesus’s sacrifice attained for us.

Who God Says You Are: Live in the Confidence and Freedom of Your True Identity by Michelle Berkey uses everyday experiences to reveal and explain the truth about God’s Word with regard to our identity. The events in the book are relatable as they bring the words in the Bible closer so that they can be easily understood and applied in daily life. The Bible verses included form a foundation for the devotionals. Each is carefully selected for a particular topic. The work is also well organized and at the end of each week, a review of what has been studied in the past seven days is included. Guidelines are also contained which help in explaining the best way in which the book can be read for its messages to have a greater impact. Who God Says You Are: Live in the Confidence and Freedom of Your True Identity is an amazing book suited for all readers. It reminds us of our true identity that became accessible through Jesus Christ.
