Resilient faith springs from being in God’s Word; it becomes solidified as we apply and obey it.

Within the pages of her new book, Songs in the Night: Daily Grace and Truth from the Treasury of God’s Word, ($21.49, paperback, 9781498424950; $9.99, e-book, 9781498424967) Vreni Schiess makes it easy for readers to take delight in God’s Word and gain a friendship with Jesus. The author offers her readers the opportunity to grow into the joyful Christian who lavishes God’s grace on people in and out of the human comfort zone. The text is comprised of a solid commitment to biblical truth, which is pleasantly complemented by the author’s keen sense of humor and her gift of creative expression. Bible reading becomes less of a chore and more of a treasured retreat with this devotional-style book.
“I yearn for young and old people to read the Bible for pleasure and profit on a regular basis,” states the author. “Resilient faith springs from being in God’s Word; it becomes solidified as we apply and obey it. Such faith has historically transformed individuals and communities for their good and God’s glory.”
In 1956, at the age of twenty-one, Vreni Schiess left her native Switzerland to spend one year in the U.S. before settling for a career in social work. Having fallen in love with California and a fellow Swiss in Hollywood, she extended her stay to get married, raise a family, and become an extraordinarily blessed and busy grandmother. She willingly succumbed to the allure of the English language, switched literary course, and started writing a monthly column for a church publication. A lifelong lover of Scripture and biblical history, Vreni developed a keen desire to share this passion. The Lord allowed her to become an effective, sought-after Bible teacher, speaker, and leader of private prayer retreats for women longing to know God more intimately.
