As a Christian, you face the pressure and stressors of the world daily. You look for rest at every turn—rest from your job, family drama, personal struggles—but the only true rest can come from Christ. Michelle Diercks invites you to find His promised rest by studying eight different names and characteristics of God. 

Each week of this eight-week study will feature a new name or characteristic of God along with its pronunciation and a biblical fact about it. Learn from Michelle's personal anecdotes and biblical examples of how you can, and should, cling to God's names during times of anxiety and hardship.

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. (John 14:27)
