Product description


"Jo-Anne has penned a heartfelt, honest and deeply searching self-reflection, beautifully and sensitively written. I'm sure it would lead any reader into a personal inner journey of their own. It is also a proclamation of God's love and faithfulness which will inspire and encourage spiritual reflection for all who enter into Becoming Me." Dr Carol Preston, counsellor and author of Beyond the Fight, Next of Kin and eight other historical novels "Becoming Me has all the qualities we look for in autobiography-honesty, insight, relevance and eloquence. We all have life stories that have inherent value, but not many of us possess the levels of self-awareness and honesty Jo-Anne Berthelsen displays in her latest offering. She draws out an abundance of perceptive insights from her experience. At each stage of her story she pauses to open up reflective questions for us to consider our own lives in the light of her observations. These are especially relevant for anyone considering questions of identity and vocation. And this is all conveyed in the assured writing style of a masterful storyteller." Dr Rick Lewis, mentor to Christian leaders via Anamcara Consulting, author of Mentoring Matters "In Becoming Me, Jo-Anne recounts the dealings of her soul with her Creator and Saviour from her birth to the present day. It is a privilege to read how she has committed her walk through life to the Lord and how he has directed her path. Her story illustrates the fact that we do not find our identity in our talents, gifts, efforts or inclinations, but in Christ alone." Marion Andrews, author of My China Mystery "I am awed by Jo-Anne's raw honesty, vulnerability and determination. Many themes run through her courageous story. One is finding her place in a Christian world dominated by traditional values. Her poignant struggle with her worth and deep longing to live with integrity will move you." Paula Davis, trauma counselling specialist, marriage and counselling educator, adjunct lecturer "In Becoming Me, Jo-Anne shares honestly, showing us that she has walked the walk regarding dealing with her personal issues. With Jo-Anne at your side, you too can go on a journey of discovery, using her questions at the end of each chapter to reflect on your life. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to reach their full potential as a person. Sue Banks, counsellor, Crisis Support Coordinator Lifeline Sydney & Sutherland At one level, Jo-Anne Berthelsen's Becoming Me is a very personal account of her own discovery of her 'true self'. But at a deeper level, it is a gentle invitation to journey with her, to find our own, deepest, truest self, that is, who we are in the eyes of our loving, Father God." (Rev) Ray Evans, teacher, counsellor, chaplain "Becoming Me is a book to be read prayerfully, allowing God the opportunity to extend His healing hand as we progress. A truly honest story which takes us through the innocence of childhood to the maturity of our middle years. It describes how our early experiences leave their mark on the core of the person we become, but also how the power of God's grace and love can deliver healing into the poverty of our souls. A gentle yet challenging read." Susanne Timpani, author of Twice Stolen and blog '10 Minute Daily Retreat' --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Jo-Anne Berthelsen grew up in Brisbane, Australia, and worked as a high school teacher, editor and local church minister in Sydney before beginning her writing career around fifteen ago.

'It had long been a dream of mine to write, but I had always felt I needed to focus on doing things that somehow seemed more important. Now, however, I realised this was what God wanted and had gifted me to do at this stage of my life - and I began to sense God's delight in seeing me fulfil more of the purpose for which I had been created.'

Jo-Anne has had seven novels published - 'Heléna', 'All the Days of My Life', 'Laura', 'Jenna', 'Heléna's Legacy', 'The Inheritance' and 'Down by the Water'. She has also written two non-fiction books, 'Soul Friend', the story of her own spiritual journey with her mentor Joy, and 'Becoming Me: Finding my true self in God'. She lives in Sydney with her retired minister husband and has three children and four grandchildren. She also speaks regularly, mentors other women and enjoys music and reading.

'My deep desire is that both my fiction and non-fiction will draw my readers closer to God in some way and make a real difference in their lives. I hope and pray many will hear the heartbeat of God in my books and allow their own hearts to be touched in the process.'
