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.
