Words of Wisdom is a daily devotional inspired by my wife, Jody L. Novak. Our kids are all grown and have moved away, so she encouraged me to find a way to continue to provide input into their lives without interfering. I decided to send them passages of Scripture along with commentary, thoughts the Lord had given to me, combined with my dry sense of humor. I began sending these short devotionals on September 9, 2007. This book is a compilation of those e-mails, entitled Words of Wisdom.
