Perfect Peace is a 31-Day Devotional crafted from the pages of Dan’s personal journal, written over the last several years.
Here’s an excerpt from Day 2: “If you’re like me, you’ve known moments of real peace. Moments when you’ve trusted God fully for your life, for everything going on in your life. In those moments, you knew real peace. The problem is, the word ‘moments.’ The moments didn’t last. The promise of Isaiah 26:3 is not to have moments of peace in our lives. The promise is that God would keep us in Perfect Peace.”
Have ye received the Holy Spirit since ye believed? – Acts 19:2
Today, however, few people know exactly what the Scriptures say regarding the Holy Spirit, and the consequence is men trying to do things in their own strength. Sadder still is how one group denies the power of the Holy Spirit, while another group pursues the things of the Spirit more than they pursue Christ Himself. Somewhere in the middle is the truth. This book takes a close look at Scripture to see what the Lord Himself tells us regarding His Holy Spirit and how it relates to us today.

“Christmas Duet is a story that warmed my heart with characters I will never forget– Kate, Zach, and seven-year-old Topher. The Northwest is the backdrop, and piano/cello improvisation completes the picture. I was captured by the dramatic irony of characters kept in the dark about illness, past accidents, fame, and finances. Even the complicated romance kept me in suspense until the very last page. Kudos to Annette Irby for her novella and her collaboration with other writers. I look forward to reading all of the novellas in the set.” by Amazon Customer
