If you are looking for answers as to the reason for your existence, or if you are a newly born-again Christian seeking to understand who you have become and the family that you have joined, then this is the book for you. So many people who call themselves Christians start questioning themselves whether being a Christian is all that it is cut out to be, simply because they have never taken the time to know who they really are in Christ. Knowing who you are in Christ is about understanding what 2nd Corinthians 5:17 truly means when it says, ‘Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.’ Further, from beginning to end, this book gives the reader a clear distinction between two components that comprise every human being, the physical and the spiritual. In order to understand who we truly are, it is of utmost importance to understand both sides that make us into one complete being. Before we become physical beings, we exist as spiritual beings. This book teaches us about our source of origin, the purpose of our existence and who we are supposed to be in Christ, as opposed to what we have accepted as the norm.

The author has always loved reading stories especially fairy tales. As she grew up, due to her love of stories, she quickly learnt how to read well because she couldn’t wait to read the many story books for herself. Her first love is the story of Joseph in the Bible and to this day her favourite of all time. The author has always been a firm believer in God. She believes that just like laws are meant to be obeyed and offenders punished, the Bible is like a law book whose contents are meant to be followed and obeyed. Her faith was always unshakeable until she went through a serious crisis and started questioning her beliefs. She began to look for answers; she wanted to know how what the Bible says could come to fruition in her life. Her journey led her to write Knowing who you are in Christ as her first book. It was inspired by a teaching done by her Pastor Ben Andrews at Winners Chapel. All the questions she had been asking were answered as she wrote the book. “God through His Holy Spirit, took hold of my hand and wrote the book. I discovered that when you spend time with God in His word, He reveals more and more of Himself to you. Sometimes He will tell you something only to find that it is actually in the bible, in a scripture you have never read before,” says the author. As a result of Knowing who you are in Christ so many new books have been born. To God be all the Glory and Honor.
