WordPoints Daybook SeriesDaily Affirmations of Hope and Courage
Defining a new standard for daily devotionals, the WordPoints Daybook Series will be your friend as you strive for spiritual growth. The pages will uplift and encourage you — but they will do so by challenging you to make changes in both your character and your conduct.
Each volume in the WordPoint series strives for balance: a blend of courtesy and candor. I never want to tell anything less than the truth, but I hope to do that in a way that is gracious. My goal is exactly that of Ephesians 4:15: “speaking the truth in love.”
“At once comfortable and elegant . . . a feast for the eye and hand, the soul and mind and heart” (Peggy Rosenthal).
“The reader is in for a strong intellectual and spiritual challenge. The richness of the essays is reminiscent of the wisdom-dense writings of C.S. Lewis” (Ellen Kennedy).

WordPoints books are what the old-timers used to call “daybooks” — books with a short reading for each day of the year.
- Brevity. The daily readings are concise and to the point, making it easier to read one every day.
- Suggestiveness. Although brief, the essays are highly concentrated. Packing a lot of meaning into a few words, they give us something to think about throughout the day, long after we’ve finished reading the essay itself.
- Discipline. Good things come from daily discipline — we need to have some growth-related things we do every single day. Since reading is one of the most profitable exercises we can engage in, daybooks are ideal tools for personal growth.
If you haven’t tried using a daybook as a part of your everyday routine, I invite you to try one of the WordPoints Daybook Series. These books will help you stay focused on what’s most important!

My heart aches with an emptiness that nearly kills me. But this I know: the rightful King is reigning, and one day every bit of this darkness will be sent back to the hell from whence it came. Dark night once had me in its grip, but it has me no more. The dawn is breaking.read more
