Daily reflections to kickstart your day. Start each morning this year with the words of bestselling author, counselor, and minister Hugh Prather. Prather asks readers to consider the holistic nature of our lives—noting that how we start our day affects everything, from our mind and spirit to our family and work.

Renew your determination to become a better person. With each page of this spiritual book, you are invited to live as if you think our world and the people in it are worth caring about and worth making time for.

These daily meditations ask us to reflect on the spiritual task ahead of us.
