what's it about?

becoming me is a story of creation ... as told by ... the creator.  from it's first enchanting line, "once upon a time, i was", becoming me takes you on a delightful journey of cosmic creation. with each turn of the page, with simple words and "breathtaking" pictures, you see how we emerge from god and are held in god's love.  

"a deceptively simple expression of the nature of the divine, with breathtaking artwork."
