New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Woven together with honesty, humility, and humor, Failing Boldly helps uwe learn to look on failure as an actual gift that can be the gateway to a deeper journey.
