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. 😉

Goodness (October 13)

It’s a joyful privilege to engage in goodness. We don’t adopt good character or good conduct primarily for the way those things make us feel, but they are, in fact, joyous things. I invite you to take goodness for a test drive.

Too Late to Obey (October 13)

Too Late to Obey (October 13)

One of the worst aspects of hell will be the helplessness of the whole situation. Not having wanted to see the truth, we never did see it . . . until it was too late. And at that point, nothing can be done but to agonize over the truth. Forever.

What Is the Point of Life in Christ? (October 13)

What Is the Point of Life in Christ? (October 13)

Christ did not die for the mere betterment of our feelings, and seeking God through Him is not mostly about pain relief. It is about character transformation. And even more than character transformation, it is about the glorification of God.
