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. 😉

Ideals (February 20)

As Harold Nicolson said, “We are all inclined to judge ourselves by our ideals, but others, by their acts.” How much better it would be if, when we are forming judgments of our friends and loved ones, we took their ideals and their aspirations into account.

Praying for the Greater Things (February 20)

As we learn to pray, we must learn to want the higher things that relate to God’s rule and His righteousness, and we must learn to want them for higher reasons than those that usually motivate us. We must seek, above all, the things that redound to His glory.

New Delight (February 20)

New Delight (February 20)

As Christians, the new delight we can have in God is the real thing. It’s what we were made for. It’s all we’ve ever dreamed of and then some. And the main thing about it is that it centers on God Himself. He, in the end, is all we really desire.
