Words of Hope

Publication Date: October 2020

Words of Hope is a daily devotional created to help you find rhythm and space.

You’ll take comfort in examining topics very familiar to you. You’ll come across items you haven’t thought about in a long time, or ever. You’ll always have the chance to reflect on scripture and the meaning within each Word of Hope.

Seizing the opportunity to spend time in thoughtful reflection and prayer will improve the way you approach both your daily routine and long-term outlook.

From the author:

I believe imagination is a great gift from our Creator. Using it, several years ago, I began to explore a question that captivated me: How can I inspire my granddaughter even if she lives two thousand miles away? I started emailing her a few hope-inspiring thoughts. With encouragement from my wife Susie, soon I had sent some 50 messages and contemplated starting a daily blog for my Words of Hope. Why? Because they seemed to have a real impact on the lives they touched as I continued to expand my audience. I’ve written over 600 Words of Hope and am excited to place many of these into book form that I hope will inspire you.

In life, there is a drive, there is rhythm, and there is space. I believe most Americans are working too long and hard under too much pressure. Taking pride in our work is needful, but we don’t have the right rhythm because we don’t create space for rest. People often say, “I’m too busy and don’t have enough time.” I’m there with you. My wife Susie says, “Fred, slow down the bus,” meaning I need to have peaceful, reflective time. Words of Hope slows down your bus and allows you to focus on what is vital. How do I want to live? How do I want to spend my time?

By developing a daily habit of reading Words of Hope, you can quiet life’s pace and generate reflective space that will increase your energy and joy!
