Not long ago, author Bill Myers had a clear and unmistakable encounter with the Lord. No audible voice, no burning bush, just a still, small impression that asked, If I put you in a coma and you could not tell anyone about Me; if you could do nothing for Me . . . would I be enough? Bill realized that too many believers, himself included, have became more focused on serving the Lord we love, rather than loving the Lord we serve. Through the pages of The Jesus Experience, Myers will take you on your own personal journey of rediscovering God’s love for you and, in turn, loving others more deeply.

What would life be like with no fear? If you could feel completely at home and at rest in the intimate love of God? We all face two choices in life: to live life as if we have a home or to live life as if we do not have a home. Many Christians live like orphans because they have never made it past their fears and into a place of rest and safety. Are you one of them? Lay aside your orphan mindset. Come in from the storm and find rest! Discover your true identity-and your true home-as a beloved son/daughter of the Father.
Would you willingly overlook clear direction from God that speaks directly to you and where you are in life right now? God’s guidance is near at hand.

It is your privilege to listen to your own story so you can live boldly for the sake of the Greatest Story, the good news of Jesus Christ. God reveals himself to you–and to others–through the story he has written in your life.

That the God who redeems you also loves you—right now and always—with a beautiful love. That you are a daughter of the King, always welcomed in his presence.

From the Foreword:
“You are not alone. Whether you’re a free spirit, an office exec, a writer, musician, college student, or tired parent—your soul, like mine, knows life is meant to go beyond rat races and rare applause. This book speaks to that belief. And if you’re not careful, you may find tears warming your eyes as you read because finally someone is naming your weariness, your striving, your questions of why you just can’t quite make it, or the emptiness that hit because maybe you did. It is into those places The Story of With reaches—fusing allegory with application—to offer fresh perspective, restored hope, and a rebirth of creativity.” —MARY WEBER, the Christy & Carol Award-Winning, Scholastic Pick Author of the Storm Siren Trilogy (Preview the Book)
