Untie your peace from your circumstances; be free from fear and anxiety; find joy and comfort regardless of what is happening or not happening in your life. How many times have you thought, "If I could only get away for a few days," "If I didn't have to deal with this person, I wouldn't be so stressed," or "If my bills were taken care, of I could relax"? Circumstances can only carry us as far as a passing sense of happiness; God promises more. Wouldn't we all like to stop making excuses for why we can't have peace here and now?
Ann Spangler's The Peace God Promises was born out of a desire that so many of us share: lasting, immovable, unshakeable peace. By exploring the meaning of 'shalom' from Jewish tradition, and adopting Amish perspectives on simplicity and rest, Spangler presents an attainable, accessible and sustainable method for experiencing God's peace regardless of our circumstances. There is nothing on this earth quite like the peace of Christ. The Peace God Promises will encourage you, help you find rest, and calm your spirit through experiencing His presence and adding shalom to your life. Are there any among us who don't long for this?

If God has promised to give us the 'peace that passes understanding,' why do we sometimes feel so anxious? What are we so afraid of? Are there ways of living that lead to peace? Conversely, are there ways of thinking and acting that lead to anxiety and a conflicted life? How does Jesus embody peace and where did his peace come from? The Peace God Promises sets our longings for peace beside God's promise to provide it. In her desire to experience greater peace, bestselling author Ann Spangler probes these and other questions. Exploring the stories that shape us, the memories that define us, and the relationships that connect us, she looks for ways to help us become more peaceful. What can we learn from Scripture, from Jewish tradition, from the Amish and others about rest, simplicity, healing, and peace? The stories she shares and the answers she discovers may surprise you. If you put them into practice, they may even transform you, enabling you to experience the peace God wants you to have.
