I began a two-year chronological journey through the Scriptures on January 1, 2021. What started as a daily devotional challenge to my church family is now viewed daily by nearly 800 individuals, and this year was read in 200 nations and territories.
HeartofAShepherd.com in 2023
On December 31, 2022, my two-year Scripture reading and devotional study of the Scriptures will conclude. On January 1, 2023, I will return to Genesis and begin a renewed journey through the Bible. My plans are to revise and republish many of my published devotionals, and enrich them with new devotional thoughts and applications. I am looking forward to using “Konvert” software, and translating the devotionals into nearly 20 international languages.
Subscribing to HeartofAShepherd.com
While my daily devotionals will continue to be published for the public, some past posts and topics will be moved to a “Subscription Only” base, and available only to subscribers. For example, my studies in the Book of Proverbs will be among those that will be accessible only to subscribers.
Anyone can subscribe to receive my daily devotions by entering their email address on the devotional page. For assistance with your subscription, please email HeartofAShepherdInc@gmail.com, and request an invitation be sent from the website to your email address. After accepting an invitation, you should begin receiving daily devotional emails.
The Future of HeartofAShepherd.com
In the future (as early as January 1, 2023), HeartofAShepherd.com will expand and become a dedicated website featuring daily devotions, translations, and video recordings of the devotions. I recently finished a verse-by-verse Bible study of the Book of Proverbs titled “Uncommon, Common Sense.” I hope to publish both Teacher and Student editions in 2023, and make them available for Bible study groups. I am also planning to write and publish in the future a daily devotional series based on Proverbs.
Your Interest and Investment
In addition to my daily preparations for preaching and teaching, and pastoral duties, I invest on average four hours a day in HeartofAShepherd.com. As you can imagine, reading the Scriptures, outlining chapters, writing devotionals, and posting them with illustrative slides is both exhausting and rewarding work.
Will you consider a financial gift to Heart of a Shepherd Inc? There is a financial burden for website domains, hosting, and other related expenses. With only a couple of exceptions to date, my wife and I have borne the financial burden for HeartofAShepherd.com. I assure you; a financial gift of any size is appreciated.
Heart of A Shepherd Inc is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501c3, and is a public charitable organization.
