WordPoints Daybook Series

Daily 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.”
If you have profited from using these daily readings, I would be glad to hear specifically how they’ve helped you. Drop me an email anytime.

Motivation . . . one page at a time

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!

P.S. You can subscribe to the free emails or you can buy hard copies of the books . . . or I suppose you could drop by my office each morning, and I’ll read the day’s essay to you out loud. 😉

The Ultimate Reason to Refuse Sin (April 20)

Taking God seriously is the most effective precaution we can take. If we love God as unselfishly as we should, we’ll hold His honor more dear than our own, and that sense of honor will defend us and protect us from doing anything that would detract from His glory.

Vulnerability (April 20)

Vulnerability (April 20)

A certain stage of maturity has to be reached before we are willing to accept our own vulnerability and not be afraid of it. But what a liberating experience when we reach that point! The “willingness to remain vulnerable” is one of the finest fruits of thoughtful and honest living.
