"This nondenominational and nonsectarian work affirms love as the linchpin of the universe." — Spirituality & Health. AGES FOUR TO FOREVER
From its remarkable opening line, “Once upon a time, I was,” this little book takes you on a cosmic journey into the heart of who you are. With deceptively simple language by Martin Boroson, and breath-taking illustrations by Christopher Gilvan-Cartwright, Becoming Me conveys the deepest mystical view of life as a process of divine self-discovery.
Profound and playful, this ‘children’s book for adults’ has been hailed by psychologists, scientists, and leaders of many different faiths. Best given to celebrate life’s big moments or to comfort people feeling sad, anxious, or lonely, Becoming Me has been taught in philosophy classes and religious sermons, and has uplifted people at every stage of their spiritual journey. This new edition is an ideal gift for new babies, weddings … or yourself. Perfect for the bedside table.
“One of those magical stories that can color your whole life, however young or old you are. . . The simple words and radiant illustrations convey the most powerful, heart-resonating truths about creation and why we are here.” — Cygnus Reviews
