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 daily 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. 😉

Does Your Life Look Desperate? (April 19)

Does Your Life Look Desperate? (April 19)

If there were no such thing as God, iff there was nothing beyond the confines of this world worth reaching forward to, then desperation would be an understandable response to the condition the world is in. But there is, in fact, a God, and that should make all the difference!

Frankness (April 19)

Frankness (April 19)

We need to check not only our communication techniques but also our motives. I believe it’s true: love is the only healthy reason for telling the truth. Frankness will only be commendable in us when we use it to convey truth with charity and good judgment.

Selfish Motives Are Not Strong Enough (April 19)

Selfish Motives Are Not Strong Enough (April 19)

We must get outside of ourselves and be drawn into concerns that are more vast and “moving” than the mere rise and fall of our own happiness. To a great extent, this is what growth toward spiritual maturity is about. It is learning to live by the strong laws of love.
