Just as I am
Brenda Smith

Billy Graham titled his autobiography, Just as I am.  He is known as the world’s preacher.  He talked about the story of the illustration of the blind men who were asked to describe an elephant each coming up with a different part of the animal.

He says from memory that we can only talk about what happened from the way we believe it happened. 

Maybe your elephant may look like an event that was life changing. 

If you were writing your autobiography, what would you put as your title?  Which bullet point might you focus on?  What would be your elephant? As you write your own autobiography there may be a big elephant that you will need to describe one part at a time.
