Words that inspire

In October, political aide Joshua DuBois released The President’s Devotional, a compilation of 365 of the more than 1,500 meditations he has sent President Barack Obama over the years. DuBois, who left his White House post in February, drew from Scripture, the songs of Nina Simone and Bob Dylan, and the activism of Fannie Lou Hamer and Martin Luther King Jr. “I think the ones that have been most useful … focused on knowing God’s love for us, knowing how to love our neighbors and knowing how to start each day with peace and joy,” he said. DuBois continues to send devotional messages to Obama every morning.
