Dear Faithful Readers,

New Year’s Day is usually a time for reflection and resolution. All of us make resolutions, such as lose weight, save more money, get out of debt, and so on. Many of our resolutions are realized during the year, and we feel a great sense of accomplishment. My prayer for you is that one of your resolutions will be to read through the Bible this year. Even if you have been following the daily devotions in the past and have completed the readings, I urge you to make Bible reading a lifelong habit.

One of my desires for 2016 is to see the publication of “The Wonderful Counselor” which is a compilation of the daily devotions from 2013. The book will be appropriate for people of all ages and would make a timely gift for anyone seeking to know more about God.

With that in mind, I have resolved to concentrate my energies on that goal. If you would like to pre-order copies of “The Wonderful Counselor” just send a comment through the website <>, and I will notify you when the book becomes available.

I want to thank you all for your loyalty to Five Minute Daily Devotions, and I pray that God will continue to guide you as you read and study His word.
