How Did I Get Here?: Finding Your Way Back to God When Everything is Pulling You Away
About this deal
Christine Caine shares in a way that is encouraging and motivational rather than condemning, and she shares honestly from her own story throughout the book. It follows one woman's courageous journey to reclaim her identity, offering hope and inspiration to those facing similar challenges. If you love humourous stories see these Philip Bunting stories; Koalas Eat Gum Leaves, and Kookaburras love to Laugh.
Then, as I say, it’s a good idea to start sharing your story with others as you ask them how they got where they are. Christine Caine and her ministry have been my guiding light for years, and this book is now different! What about your professional approach is different, and is there an emerging market for that approach?Christine makes us laugh and cry as she shares stories of her Greek roots while baring her heart and soul, and in doing so, takes each of us on an adventure into more honest places within ourselves and the current climate of our culture. People are combinations of choices they make, and sometimes those choices are in the moment, partly a result of luck, about our passions, or the people we are around. I knew I was going to be judged for my sexuality, so I wanted to be above reproach in most other ways.
Now I’ve told you some of the big reasons for how I got here, it’s time for you to tell me your story. How does where you come from play a role in the choices you think about in your priorities from work? From the big bang, to atoms, to our solar system, to Earths history up until the first life form, through evolution and the development of human settlements to finally the night 'you became you' … 'and how lucky you are to be one of the newest additions'. I didn’t always know what to do about it, but I knew others felt the sting of perceived limits, because I’d felt that sting myself.
From the Big Bang to your birthday, and (almost) everything in between, this funny and informative book tells your story. He manages to take big concepts and explain them very simply and with great humour, to make them engaging for all ages. But since then, I’ve become a lot more directed at finding people I like, respect, laugh with and trust, that I want to engage, and I’m very mindful of that in all of the choices I make now. It’s the definition, in most people’s eyes, of what it means to be professional at anything, to exchange money for it. I like how Bunting has used the most familiar phrases from Goldilocks and the Three Bears to explain the theory of primordial soup '.
