In the heat of the first presidential campaign, staff member Joshua DuBois recognized the wear and tear of the campaign on his boss and asked the Senator if he could e-mail a devotional to him each day. When Obama responded positively, DuBois prepared a message for the future president to read first thing every morning — short snippets of scripture, inspirational stories, quotes, and prayers to provide counsel, encouragement, and inspiration.
The President’s Devotional is a collection of the best of these messages, meant to offer encouragement and daily inspiration for an entire year. Through his years of working closely with the president, DuBois learned many life-changing lessons as well as gained an inside view on the faith and values of President Obama.
