Liberation and a life without limits—NBA center Jason Collins epitomized this Daily Word® message when he sat down on May 5 with Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Next Chapter and spoke on coming out as the first gay male athlete in a major U.S. professional sport.

“The clarion call of freedom sounds within my soul, trumpeting the truth that the love of God liberates me from unhappiness, hurt, or fear,” Oprah recited from Daily Word during the interview with Collins.

Behind the barricaded walls of HMP Garth Prison in Preston, Lancashire, prisoners in the Braille Unit provide inspiration to the vision-impaired by offering free braille editions of Daily Word® within the United Kingdom.

The work is both challenging and rewarding for the 12 prisoners involved in Garth’s Braille workshop. Transcribers must complete an intense 20- to 25-hour-per-week, four- to six-month training course where they learn six-key braille entry, how to sight read braille, as well as proofread pages before embossing. They are also required to complete an external qualification before moving on to transcribe Daily Word and other books.
