To live an authentic, fulfilled life, we need to both understand and practice the core beliefs of the Christian faith. Being intentional about pursuing Christ often is challenging in our confusing, messy world, but like the biblical character Daniel, who did not compromise his values, we must take small, deliberate steps to grow in spiritual integrity. The short, inspirational devotions in “Authentic Living” illustrate how we can be more deliberate in our faith each and every day through small actions like asking forgiveness, offering guidance, praying specifically and more. With these simple yet profound readings, we can realize a more fulfilling life and faith one thought, one action, one day at a time.


Authentic Living” is a year-long devotional that looks to help readers to develop their faith.

The beauty of this devotional is its utter simplicity, yet it still packs powerful truths.

Devotions range from half a page to a page long, featuring the devotion, a related scripture and a prayer.

Pastor and radio host Richard Exley truly is looking to help readers to live authentically in our overly plugged-in and fast-paced world.

The uncomplicated lessons are easy to fit into one’s day, leaving no excuse not to incorporate this little boost of biblical wisdom into your day.

Those looking for help in the search for authenticity definitely should check out “Authentic Living.”
