Dial Guideposts for Inspiration Telephone Network, a telephone ministry, was a companion service to Guideposts Magazine, a monthly non-sectarian magazine, which was founded and was co-published by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and Mrs. Ruth Stafford Peale. The telephone service was established by Dr. Peale in New York in 1966 and eventually expanded to different cities across the country. The service was free to callers who would hear the Peales’ voice giving a different devotion each day when they called the number. The messages’ topics would range from positive outlooks to biblical references, intended to bolster inspiration among callers. The messages lasted about two minutes and were available 24 hours a day. The telephone service continued until the 1990s, when it became a service for the deaf and hard of hearing.
