With increases in the number of people seeking spiritual answers and searching for ways to hold onto hope, the messages found in author Lucie K Lewis’ “I AM” are a welcomed resource.
Springfield, MA (January 2013) – Springfield born and raised author, Lucie K Lewis will release her new book, “I AM” Renewal from Within the Garden” on March 27, 2013. The book lifts the veil to highlight the troubling shadows of the unanswered spiritual questions that paralyze us, rob us of our faith and leave us vulnerable to despair and depression. Lewis, too, has risen from the depths of depression following the untimely death of her mentor, Aunt Marion, and birth of her only child to publish this treasure trove of biblical information that is helping readers take a new look at the power of self-love taught through the Bible’s powerful ‘I AM” statements.
Thanks to Marion’s wisdoms, Lewis overcame many struggling times and pieced her life together using the tenets of God’s faith. Rising from the days that she once paced through the old Steiger’s Department Store and Johnson’s Bookstore where she wandered in a depressed state, the Marion-inspired biblical exploration moved Lewis to overcome these mental and emotional obstacles and to move forward to a stable life, building a successful 20-year professional career in government, education and now even her own business. As a testimony to Aunt Marion, Lewis now shares the wisdom learned to help others navigate life and find success.
Through revisiting the lives of Old Testament patriarchs from the Adam in the Garden of Eden to Moses and Joshua, Lewis unveils biblical messages in new ways to empower each person to take steps of personal faith and courage. The text is more than just religious reading. It walks readers through the journey of Christ’s fourteen “I Am” statements with a timeline of engaging opportunities to revisit traditional teachings.
As a lay person with an angelic singing voice, skill in genealogy and a life-long relationship with God, Lewis says: “The lessons that I share in the book are filled with practical detail that will help the churched, unchurched, faithful and faith-challenged find a new way to make more sense out of biblical teachings that most people have never really thoroughly studied or successfully learned. This is my learning journey to claim Marion’s life-view as my own, but all is shared to help others along their respective journey.”
“I hope to reach every person, from boomers to young people in all faiths and stages of religious study or acceptance, who might need hope, restoration and/or new ways to approach spiritual learning,” adds Lewis.” Citing research from sources like the Barna Group that reported in 2006 that nearly two-thirds of those who were considered unchurched embraced spiritual activities routinely and the Pew Center for Research, whose 2012 report cited a marked growth in the number of religiously unaffiliated Americans between 2006 and 2012 but no change in the number of people whose daily lives included spiritual activity, Lewis recognizes that people are searching for a deeper spiritual understanding from both inside the church and out. Lewis adds,” This book could be a great spiritual connector.”
In addition, Lewis has created motivational items that visually capture the fourteen “I AM” statements.

Lucie’s very personal journey of seeking strength and understanding through scripture resonated with me and kept me reading late into the night. Her welding of inquiry and struggle paired with the strength and wisdom of God’s Word forge a graceful and powerful bond.
