• A fresh connection between the Nicene Creed and “real life”
• Author is a popular speaker and retreat leader

Our stories anchor us as we experience the vicissitudes of life. They strengthen us, inspire us, and encourage us as we grow older. This book offers Jesus’ story as a real-life mirror to our own stories, ultimately making God’s story, our story, and our story, God's story.  From Begotten, to Suffering Death, to Glory, and the Life of the World to Come, the author uses spiritual reflections, poetry, and the Nicene Creed to give new meaning to real-life circumstances of identity, pain, family life, dealing with depression, and ultimate healing. Becoming Who I Am encourages us to embrace and tell our whole stories and to discover our divine capacity for true life transformation and joy.

Read the Introduction

Watch author Beth-Sarah Wright perform her poem, I Sing:

BETH-SARAH WRIGHT, PhD, is Director of Enrollment Management at Holy Innocents' Episcopal School in Atlanta, Georgia and Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, Emory University School of Medicine. Wright is the author of four bookstwo on the intersection of mental health and spirituality, a third on Christian Identity and the Nicene Creed and a spiritual novel rooted in 3 generations of women in a transnational context spanning the Caribbean, UK and the USA. She resides in Atlanta, GA with her husband, Rob and they are the parents of five children.

This slim volume is full of infectious rhythms and memorable lines, but you will have to read it yourself to discover which ones are calling your name. Beth-Sarah Wright has done what all good writers do: she has found the universal story in her story and made an offering of it for the rest of us.
—Barbara Brown Taylor
author of Learning to Walk in the Dark  

With poetry, story, song, and lament, Beth-Sarah Wright invites her reader to choose life, God-given and God-directed life. Her book surprises, provokes, and inspires, challenging us to hear and to see in the ways of the Gospel.  
—Mary C. Earle, spiritual director, retreat leader, Episcopal priest
author of Marvelously Made: Gratefulness and the Body  

Beth-Sarah Wright reminds us that the Spirit who guides us on this journey of faith is more poet than cartographer, more storyteller than director. Each step on our way to wholeness is holy and hopeful.
—Milton Brasher-Cunningham
author of Keeping the Feast and This Must Be the Place
