Book Review: At Peace in the Storm by Ken Gire

*I received this book via Bethany House for purposes of review, however all opinions are my own.

At Peace in the Storm
by Ken Gire

About the Book:
“Here's the rub about faith. Sure, prayer often changes outward things, but the only guaranteed miracle God offers us is inner peace, the peace of Christ. A peace so crazy deep that it cannot be analyzed or understood. It descends on us even when everything else is falling apart, while the drug-addicted child does not come to his senses, or the job offer doesn't pan out, or the cancer rages and the marriage is a hollow mess. But I'll let you in on a secret. This miracle of the ‘inner variety,’ this inexplicable and supernatural calm in the storm, is the greatest miracle you'll ever experience.”
Bestselling author Ken Gire weaves together stories from the Bible, history, and his own life to reveal how we can find strength and encouragement through the storms of life. Experience the joy of knowing the God who is always there to reach out a hand and pull you out of the waves."

My Review:
Everyone goes through "storms" and some are more severe than others, but that is how life is.  Finding comfort during those storms can be a challenge but remembering that God is always there can be calming, especially for me.  This book will help you to remember just that and help you see that finding comfort can be found through many things.  Music, recreation and even serving others can bring peace and calmness.  

"Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed."
Proverbs 11:25

Using his own life stories along with others the author shows us how you can find comfort during your storms and how to show comfort to others during their storms as well.  This is quick read that I am so glad I got the opportunity to read.  2 thumbs up!
