Breakfast With Dad is a collection of devotions on books of the Bible that I send out to over 150 friends and family. I hope you will take time to read the most recent blog and maybe one of two from past offerings. If you have an interest in studying the Bible or have been thinking about starting a daily devotion, this would be a good place to start. I hope these “breakfasts” encourage you. — Cliff Bursch
