Episode 189 is with Craig Smith, author of the new book “Awake The Dawn”

Over the years, Craig Smith’s career has included titles of Dove-nominated musician, pastor, and ministry leader.  Now, his heart for encouraging others to spend the first moments of the day with Christ has inspired his debut devotional Awake In the Dawn. This simple daily offering of encouragement leads you into the strength, wisdom, and spiritual adventure of living the Lord’s Prayer.

Awake in the Dawn will be available September 16, 2022.

Each day of the week is dedicated to one line of the prayer:

Our Father in Heaven, may your name be kept holy

May your kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven

Give us today the food we need

Forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who have sin against us

Don’t let us yield to temptation

But rescue us from the evil one

For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.

All proceeds from Awake in the Dawn go to support the work of Village2Village, a faith-based non-profit reaching underserved communities in Uganda, Thailand, and NW Arkansas by creating “Hope Villages.”   V2V seeks to share the hope of the Gospel of Christ, help children develop a Biblical worldview, disciple families long-term, and meeting practical and educational needs that support families and break the devastating cycles of addiction, broken homes, and poverty.
