Someone recently asked Richard why he took on this daily project. Richard responded, “I write as an expression of gratitude for all that God has done in my life. My desire is that others might know the Lord and experience His powerful presence in their lives.”
Richard believes that “No matter where you are in life, no matter what you are facing, God can help. With Christ there is no such thing as a day without hope. The best is yet to come. “
