Jesus in Me
Anne Graham Lotz
Combines unique biblical insights and her own personal stories to show how the Holy Spirit guides us in our decisions, comforts us in pain, and stays by our side at all times, enriching our daily lives.
In Jesus in Me, Anne Graham Lotz draws on her rich biblical knowledge as well as her personal journey—including her recent cancer diagnosis—to help us understand that the Holy Spirit is not a magic genie, a flame of fire, or a vague feeling. He is a Person who prays for us, guides us in our relationships and decisions, comforts us in pain, and stays by our side at all times. In this seminal teaching, she explores seven key aspects of the Holy Spirit that will revolutionize how you understand and relate to this vital third Person in the Trinity.
As Anne writes, “One of my deepest, richest joys has been discovering by experience who the Holy Spirit is in every step of my life’s journey. Each name that He has been given—Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener, and Standby—reveals another aspect of His beautiful character and has provoked in me a deep love for the One who is my constant Companion . . . Jesus in me.”
Discover how to better love and rely on the person of the Holy Spirit—and embrace how much He loves you through His presence, power, and provision in our daily lives.

Jesus in Me, by Anne Graham Lotz, is a wonderful book about who the Holy Spirit is and how he fits into our day-to-day lives. For me, and I am sure others, the Holy Spirit has always been a bit of a mystery, taking a backseat to the Father and the Son in the Holy Trinity. Within the 304 pages and 27 chapters, Anne explains the Holy Spirit perfectly and gives examples of how the he has worked throughout her life during her most trying times.
While I did enjoy reading about Anne’s journey and how the Holy Spirit accompanied her throughout her journey, the book was a bit different then what I was expecting. I was expecting more of a how-to understanding of the Holy Spirit and how he moves in each of our lives, instead I thought it read more like a memoir about the author’s experiences with the Holy Spirit. Having said that, I still enjoyed the book.
This was my first book from Anne Graham Lotz, even though I have followed her for a while being Billy Graham’s daughter. I am also blessed to have been taught Sunday school by one of Billy Graham’s granddaughters. I really enjoyed her writing style, and her ability to make difficult information about the Holy Spirit easy to understand.
Overall, I very much enjoyed Jesus in Me. I think it is a great read for both new and seasoned Believers and those who want a better understanding of the Holy Spirit.
