From the influential and ever-growing movement "I Am Second" comes a remarkable collection of well-known lives transformed from restless to happy by the power of God.
When I Am Second launched in 2008, the organization meant simply to tell stories of people whose lives changed utterly when they placed God first and themselves second. Although the organization has exploded in size and influence since, that original mission has remained the same--and continues to have enormous power today. I Choose Peace is the highly anticipated new book from I Am Second, gathering together stories of people who searched everywhere for fulfillment and wholeness and found it only when they surrendered to God. People whose stories appear include the following:
- Chip and Joanna Gaines
- Kathie Lee Gifford
- Albert Pujols
- Shawn Johnson
- Phil and Kay Robertson
- Brian "Head" Welch
Moving, compelling, and profoundly inspiring, the stories found here remind us that our hearts will always be restless until they find their rest in God.
