About Us

Do you need something uplifting to get you through the day? How about a short story and a devotional thought that will help you focus on what’s important in life? Maybe a motivational quote? Cute quip? Or a poem that brings a tear to your eye? If so, you’re gonna love this site!

How I Got My Collection of Heartwarming Stories

I was born in New Jersey, transplanted to Texas, got my first job (McDonalds) in Pennsylvania, started preaching in Missouri, married my best friend in Arkansas, became an author in Illinois and now I’m an online motivator of happy thoughts! It’s been a crazy ride!

Over the last 35 years, I have preached hundreds of sermons filled with illustrations that are now being archived on this site.

Or … Delivered Straight to Your Email

Just before sunrise every Monday morning, our family ministry sends out a fresh email devotional to everyone on the Sonny Day Devos mail list. Wouldn’t you like to start each work week with a positive story, poem, quip or quote that will warm your soul? It’s free! Sign up today!
