The Peace River Flows: A Daily Devotional for the Followers of Christ

Many years ago, Teresa was encouraged by the Holy Spirit to follow the steps of Jesus. With his guidance, she took a trip through the Gospels, observing the way Jesus taught his disciples. He used his creation to help them understand the things of God and to give them a point of reference that made sense to them. She studied him and hung onto his every word and fashioned herself after him, learning to tell stories by using her experiences to explain biblical truths.

She grew up in the heart of the state of Florida, surrounded by cabbage palm trees and cow pastures where the beautiful Peace River flows. Her childhood home was near the edge of that swamp, and she has fond memories of roaming and playing near the river and still loves watching it flow. One of the things she loves about Jesus is the peace he brings when one trusts in him. She is often amazed at the springs of living water that well up from deep within, that spill out onto those who are near. He has given us a special gift, and her goal for this book is to provide you with a daily dose of the things he has taught her so you will, in turn, make use of his gifts and find comfort in the peace he brings.

You are invited to experience Jesus through a daily excursion into his Word and begin to see your circumstances the way he sees them. By the time you come to the end of this book, Teresa hopes that you break bonds and leave all of your cares to Jesus by learning to trust in him.
