“Self-acceptance always precedes genuine self-surrender and self-transformation.”
― David G. Benner, The Gift of Being Yourself: The Sacred Call to Self-Discovery.

“Identity is never simply a creation. It is always a discovery. True identity is always a gift of God.” –David G. Benner, The Gift of Being Yourself: The Sacred Call to Self-Discovery.

“Before we can surrender ourselves we must become ourselves, for no one can give up what he or she does not first possess.” – David G. Benner, The Gift of Being Yourself: The Sacred Call to Self-Discovery.

“We do not find our true self by seeking it. Rather, we find it by seeking God.” – David G. Benner, The Gift of Being Yourself: The Sacred Call to Self-Discovery.

“Genuine self-knowledge begins by looking at God and noticing how God is looking at us.” – David G. Benner, The Gift of Being Yourself: The Sacred Call to Self-Discovery.

“Any hope that you can know yourself without accepting the things about you that you wish were not true is an illusion. Reality must be embraced before it can be changed. Our knowing of ourselves will remain superficial until we are willing to accept ourselves as God accepts us—fully and unconditionally, just as we are.” – David G. Benner, The Gift of Being Yourself: The Sacred Call to Self-Discovery.
