Perfect Peace




Ann Voskamp wrote a book, One Thousand Gifts.  Ann lost her younger sister at a young age. The sister was run over by a truck in their driveway. The whole family was devastated.  One day she began to be brutally honest with God about her life and circumstances.  After marriage, God lead her to Eucharisteo, thanksgiving, and that lead to listing her thanksgivings to God, He commissioned her to find 1000 blessings.  She is into the tens of thousands now!

Reflections Isaiah 9 from Scotty Smith

Samuel anointing king David

Samuel anointing David to take the throne

Read Scotty Smith’s reflections of the truths of Isaiah 9.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this. Isaiah 9:6-7
