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. 😉

When We Realize What Mercy Means (August 23)

We make two mistakes regarding mercy: we suppose (1) that God extends His mercy to those who deserve it and withholds it from those who don't, or (2) that after receiving God's forgiveness we are somehow more deserving in His sight than we were before.

Courtesy (August 23)

Courtesy (August 23)

Too often, we make the effort to be courteous to everybody else but then treat those nearest and dearest to us with rudeness and irritability. But if anybody in the world deserves to get our very best behavior, isn't it those we come home to after work?

Enjoyment and Relinquishment (August 23)

There is nothing in this world that is ours to keep -- we're going to have to let go of all of it. The only thing we'll never have to give up is God. So may we allow the One Thing to be our security that was meant to be our security and look at everything else as temporary.
