Last week my publisher and I sent out four special copies of I AM: 40 Reasons to Trust God to four special people—endorsers. I’m SO thankful for the words they wrote to affirm the book, and I want you to meet each one. I hope you’ll want to get to know them better and discover their wonderful books too!
