Me Too: Experience the God Who Understands by Jon Weece Book Review

In Me Too, Jon Weece shared the importance of connecting with others and God. We all have fallen short and sinned and this is why God sent His Son to die for our sins. We all experience emotions, such as fear, anger, sadness, and pain. Many people suffer alone through difficult circumstances and they are needing a help from a friend. He strongly believes in listening to others and there is power in having a friend say, “me too”. Jon Weece shared the story about four men trying to get a paralyzed man to Jesus. They had to dig a hole through the roof in order to get the paralyzed man to Jesus’. Everyone needs friends who are willing to be there in the hard times. And the most important friend we can rely on is Jesus. 

I would recommend this life changing book to anyone who is longing to experience a closer relationship with God. This book has shown me that God does truly care about whatever challenges we are facing. I related with Jon when he opened up about his fears and struggles with getting close to others and opening up to them. I also struggle with trusting people and I can honestly say “me too”. This book helped me realize that I’m not alone and others have the same issues that I do. It helped me see that I need to face my fears head on and not let satan try and scare me into backing down. I also liked how Jon wasn’t afraid to talk about suicide and how it affects a large number of people. It’s heartbreaking to read it’s the “second leading cause of death for ages 10-24”. I especially liked how he shared how losing hope in life can lead to the dark tunnels of depression. He explained how satan knows how to convince people that suicide is the only answer. Jon shared how God understands our pain and He is willingly to help us. I also liked how he explored the question most people are wondering and that is, if someone commits suicide will they go to Heaven. He related the scripture of Romans 8:38-39 and this talks about how nothing can separate us from the love of God and this includes satan and his demons, our past, our future, height or depth. If you’re looking for an excellent book on ways to connect with God on a greater level, then read this book!
