About-

Many children wonder about the beginning of their lives, about where they come from and who they are. You Made Me speaks to these questions through contemplative practice, inspired by Lectio Divina, or “Divine Reading.” Immersing reader and listener in words from Psalm 139 and in vivid illustrations, children and adults are invited to reflect on God’s presence in shaping and knowing them, even before the earliest moments of their physical lives.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Marvelous, simply marvelous! This book of words and wonder will fill the spirits of the young and the old. Maxfield-Steele has hit the mark with life and hope.”

—Emilie M. Townes, E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of Womanist Ethics and Society, Vanderbilt Divinity School



“Ever so gently, Erin Maxfield-Steele draws us into a rapturous contemplation of ordinary, earthy, human bodies—those of babies and those of women. Through words of the psalmist and her own vibrant images, she renders those bodies holy as she reminds us of the genesis we all share. It is a beautiful vision of deepest truth.”

—Susan E. Goff, Bishop Suffragan and Ecclesiastical Authority, The Episcopal Diocese of Virginia
