Starting tomorrow, August 20th, through November 17th, I’ll be embarking on my fourth round of reading the Bible in 90 Days. For those new to the concept, the goal of Bible in 90 Days is to read attentively every word of the Bible from cover-to-cover in a 90-day period. I’ve successfully done this once, twice, three times in the past two years. Why on earth, might you ask, would I do this seemingly insanely aggressive reading program yet again? (pssst – the key word here is “seemingly”) Because God wants me to. Jesus said that we are to live by every word that comes from the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4). I can’t live by His every word unless I first know by reading His every word. And for me, being able to read the Bible in a 90 day period has been far more meaningful than attempting to stretch it out over a year’s time (something that I was never able to do successfully, by the way). Because I want to. The last 6 months have perhaps been the most personally challenging of my entire life to date. If I shared the details, you would no doubt think I … Continue reading
My 10-year-old dyslexic son just completed the Bible in 90 Days Challenge via Mom’s Toolbox! Struggling readers, adults and children alike: if he can do it, I can assure you that you can, too! Click here to read my post on how he did it. Here’s a hokey 2-minute video I made with my iPhone to celebrate the milestone: If you have trouble seeing the video from the email, click here to view it online. Blessings,
Today I began my third round of the Bible in 90 Days Challenge hosted by Mom’s Toolbox! My first round began last summer and it was the first time I had EVER read the bible cover-to-cover in my (then) 47 years. Words cannot describe the euphoria and blessings in having accomplished this lifetime goal. I couldn’t wait to do it again the following winter…and now again this summer. When I tell people about reading the bible in 90 days, most of them express how daunting of a challenge it sounds. That’s because they’ve struggled so much with their other bible reading plans. If they couldn’t finish reading the bible with a year-long plan then why would they think they can finish it in 90 days? I totally relate to that. It was a daunting concept to me at first since I’ve never been able to finish reading the bible in a year’s time either. But nothing can be further from the truth. If anything, it was far EASIER for read it cover-to-cover in 90 days than to have stretched it out over a year’s time. It’s only 12 pages a day! And there are so many “A-ha!” moments with all … Continue reading
I was feeling all pretty good about myself at the beginning of last week when I was a full 5 days ahead of schedule in order to prepare for upcoming vacation schedules. That was short-lived. Turns out it wasn’t vacation that set me back the rest of last week…Vacation Bible School did! Who knew that part-time volunteer work at 5 days of VBS could zap every last bit of energy I had? I had been suspecting for some time now on how pathetically unfit I was but that week resolutely confirmed it for me. Anyway, I’m back on schedule as of today. Phew. And just in time…our family vacation starts tomorrow <biting my nails>. I am secretly hoping to get some reading time in on the 7-hour flight but, then again, I could also be spiraling into delusion since we are towing 5 kids between the ages of 5 & 10. Soooo…I need those B90 prayer warriors to keep sending up those prayers, please! See y’all on the other side,
