She’s not your average crime fighter!
Ivy Malone has a curiosity that sometimes gets her into trouble, and it’s only aggravated by her discovery that she can easily escape the public eye. So when vandals romp through the local cemetery, she takes advantage of her newfound anonymity and its unforeseen advantages as she launches her own unofficial investigation.
Despite her oddball humor and unconventional snooping, Ivy soon becomes discouraged by her failure to turn up any solid clues. And after Ivy witnesses something ominous and unexplained, she can’t resist putting her investigative powers to work again. Even the authorities’ attempts to keep Ivy out of danger and her nosy neighbor’s match-making schemes can’t slow her down. But will the determination that fuels this persistent, quirky sleuth threaten her very safety?

This eBook is an entry-point into the vast and inexhaustible world of SONSHIP, primarily as it relates to HOW we as sons serve our fathers in the faith. Because when saints move into sonship the rules of engagement against a very real enemy change.
Our world does not need any more of God’s apostles with territorial kingdom mandates. It needs sons who thoroughly execute the plan in their man ~ The Spirit of True Sonship
Ladies, the spirit of sonship applies equally to you because kingdom identity is not defined by gender, race or social status. We are all one in Christ ~ Galatians 3:28.
Notably, this kind of son does not count it as ‘loss’ or ‘less than’ being perceived as number two. Because he understands only one under authority has authority. His faithfulness creates fruitfulness on every level. Meaning a son’s potential is limitless.
Yours is too.

One of the saddest realities in the Church today is that many Christians are living in cages. The bars of these prisons are not made of iron, but of far more daunting materials: depression, fear, anxiety, guilt, and shame. Why? One reason that lies at the root of these struggles is often overlooked. It is our trouble believing in God’s sovereignty. Using Psalm 91 as an outline, Dan Ledwith shows how God’s sovereignty positively impacts our lives by securing the promises of God to give us rest from depression, anxiety, fear, guilt, and shame so that we can be free to live with joy, to make peace with our past, to have hope for tomorrow, to live boldly, and to love God, ourselves, and others. If you want to know the peace that God offers, you need to be learning what it means to rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Rest in the Shadow of the Almighty is a needed and helpful word about true peace with God in the midst of a chaotic world. It is soul care at its best.—Rev. Dr. Kenneth L. Swetland, Sr. Professor of Ministry Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Using his knowledge of Scripture and Christian history, Dan masterfully illustrates the biblical cures for the curses common to us all. His book is a welcome addition to the 21st century discussion regarding the extent and practicality of God’s sovereignty. A must read.—Rev. Dr. William E. Boylan, Sr. Pastor at Byfield Parish Church, Georgetown MA and President of Biblical Witness Fellowship. I can promise this is not another “read it and forget it” book; this is a resource you will resort to over and over again. Everyone needs to read this book! Get it, read it, and pass it on.—Rev. Steve Poole, Director of Spiritual Formation and Pastoral Mentoring for Vision New England. Dan has written a timely and more importantly, a wise pastoral book to help people with the struggles of life in this fallen world. His Rest in the Shadow of the Almighty is a balm for the soul.—Rev. Dr. Frank A. James III, Provost, Professor of Historical Theology Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
