It’s a series of four fantasy-adventure novels about the three Igiby children, Janner, Kalmar, and Leeli. 

They live in a world called Aerwiar, which is exactly like our world–except they don’t have electricity or gunpowder, and there are all sorts of creepy animals, like sea dragons and toothy cows. Janner, the eldest, is about to discover that the ordinary little town where they live is anything but ordinary. In fact, he and his family are at the center of a great mystery that will change their lives forever.

KNOW GOD: A 28-DAY DEVOTIONAL EXPERIENCE FOR STUDENTS

How do you know God?

Knowing God doesn’t happen in a moment. It’s not like you wake up one morning and BAM, you know God. You have Him all figured out. No more questions. No more doubts.

In fact, you can read every word in this book, fill in every blank, follow every suggestion, and still not understand everything there is to know about God. But that shouldn’t discourage you. Because this book isn’t about answering all of your questions. It’s about taking a step, starting you on a journey to help you know God more. Not completely. Not fully. But more than you did yesterday or the day before. Because even though there’s no formula for knowing everything about God, there are a few things you can do every day that will help you know Him better.

That’s what this journal is all about: four things you can do today (and every day) that will help you know God.

BEFORE YOU GO

Life is constantly changing and with every new season comes a new set of challenges. As you prepare to leave high school behind and move into a new season of college and “adulting,” this book will serve as a guide to help you maintain and grow your faith in college. In the pages of this short book you’ll find letters from college freshmen, 10 ideas that will help prepare you for what’s ahead, and questions to help you process and apply what you’ve read. My hope is that by the end of this book you will walk away challenged, encouraged, and prepared before you go.
