Discover Joy in Faithful Living

Finding Peace in a Chaotic World

We're everyday, imperfect Christians doing our best to live Godly lives in a difficult world. We started this site to share our faith and Biblical truth with others in hopes that they too find "the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding." Philippians 4:7

"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock." Isaiah 26:3,4 English Standard Version
