Jakob Hochstetler and his family came to America in 1738, seeking sanctuary from religious persecution in Europe and the freedom to live and worship according to their Anabaptist beliefs. Along with other members of their church, they settled in the Northkill Amish Mennonite community on the Pennsylvania frontier between civilization and Indian country. Eighteen years later, while the French and Indian War raged, their home was attacked by a party of Delaware and Shawnee warriors. Facing certain death with his wife and children, Jakob made a wrenching choice that would tear apart his family and change their lives forever.

But God never meant for us to focus on whether we are "enough," whether we measure up. He made us--every piece of us--to be just as he is. Jerusha Clark discovered this while exploring the seven powerful "I am" statements of Jesus recorded in the Gospel of John. Now she invites you to join her in embracing the life and truth of these words, relishing the freedom of an identity fixed on Christ alone while leaving behind fear, bitterness, busyness, and toxic thoughts that steal our joy and limit our power.
