It’s a cycle we’re familiar with and may not spend much time thinking about.
How about pause, take a step back, and ask the obvious why: Why am I doing all these?
Why am I feeling this way? Why am I alive?

At YMI (which stands for Why Am I?), we encourage you to think deeper about all that you’re experiencing in life. This ongoing cycle need not be a mundane one.

We want you to be involved. Share about the amazing way God has been working in your life, and be encouraged by the stories of your peers. Here’s how you can participate:


If you have a desire to make God’s word known through your God-given talent (writing, photography, art—just to name a few), we would love to help you achieve that.

Write to us at or go to the CONTRIBUTE page.


What’s a site with a whole lot of good content that nobody reads? If you’ve benefited from anything you’ve come across, do your peers a favor and share it with them. You can also give to the work financially.

Ultimately, our heartbeat is that God’s Word, through you, will be shared to many more young people.
