The goal of “Authentic Living” is to provide daily devotions that renew the mind even as they transform the way we live. Each devotion contains a life-changing spiritual truth, a relevant verse of Scripture, and a prayer that is refreshingly transparent. Although they are short by design, they are profound, thought-provoking, and can be read quickly—perfect for today’s busy person.



What Others Are Saying


Clifton L. Taulbert, author of “Eight Habits of the Heart” and a Pulitzer Prize nominee says, “Authentic Living is full of devotional gems for life. Richard Exley, mindful of our time and the challenges faced, has made it easy for us to hear God’s love whispered in our ears when needed most—daily and while on the run.”


Karen Hardin, President of PriorityPR Group & Literary Agency says, “Richard Exley is one of my favorite writers. The stories he crafts are like the melody of a song, only on paper. In his newest book, “Authentic Living,” he reminds us of simple joys, the importance of relationships, and perspective.  These short devotions will stir your emotions—sometimes to tears, sometimes to laughter, and sometimes just to reflect on the importance of living life in the now.”
