Wayne worked in the media for more than 30 years before leaving to follow a call to set up The Daily Encourager, a values based media showcasing the best of New Zealand society. He has a passion for Jesus, enjoys walking, ball sports, the arts and song writing.

  • Wisdom’s call

    Over the past few weeks I have been working through The Passion Translation of the book of Proverbs.

  • Journey In Wonder – ‘Slices of Abundant Life’

    In his mid-forties, Wayne Graham experienced what seemed like a mid-life crisis.

  • I would rather be ashes than dust

    As the war in Ukraine unfolds, I can’t help but admire the steadfast resolve of the Ukrainian people to resist the Russian invasion. Many of them would rather die than submit to Russian authority.

  • The dream

    Since I was born I have suffered from occasional bouts of conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis is not pleasant. My eyes become inflamed, sore, red and stick together after I fall asleep during the night.

  • The minority report

    With an open mind I visited the anti-mandate protest camp at Parliament in Wellington, New Zealand in February. I had some empathy for the protestors plight. Many of my friends are not vaccinated and are paying a price for their stance.

  • Moments of awe

  • Tales of the unexpected

    The temptation was too much. It was a hot summers day at university and lying on the grass sunbathing one floor below me were half a dozen engineering students.

  • Travelling through time

  • Making amends

  • Hope

    I recently bought a dog who I have named after my late Grandfather George. He is great company for me, but little did I know that George would bring confidence and healing to other dogs and their owners in our community.
