We come up with a million excuses why we can’t do this or do that, but we find time, we make time to do the things we really want to do.
I want YAP to be a resource to help people spend 15-30 minutes every day reading scripture, or a devotional or an interesting book. Later you might want to start watching some of the over 4,000 embedded lectures from Carnegie Mellon University, Dallas Theological Seminary, Harvard, Biola University, Vanderbilt University, Princeton Theological Seminary, Gordon–Conwell Theological Seminary, Catholic University, Edinburgh University, Yale and other leading universities around the world.
If you can make this small commitment you will discover at the end of the year that you have read the entire Bible, or a devotional, or a book or books and I know your walk with God will be strengthened.

The calendar below will take you to that specific day’s reading and video resources. If you know how to make a linkable calendar that will fit on a cell phone display I hope you will share the “how to” with an old guy who would love to make this cell phone accessible.
I am not a 501, but donations are much appreciated otherwise a free way to help YAP is to use the Amazon icon below before you make your next purchase on Amazon. Amazon, with no charge to you, will donate a fraction of whatever you purchase to YAP. Amazon says it does not cost you anything extra.
I hope you will find this web site useful.
