How do you Bible?

Are you ready for a challenge in the New Year? Is it your desire to spend more time in God’s Word? Do you wish you had resources to help?

 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re in the right place!

 

For many of you, reading through the Bible in a year sits atop your list of goals, but you may not be sure how to tackle it. Where do you start (other than Genesis) and which reading plan do you follow?

 

The great news is, there’s no wrong answer! Whether you desire to read through from cover to cover, read chronologically, have someone read it to you, or tune into a topical podcast, the possibilities are endless and this goal is more achievable than you might think.

 

Did you know… you could finish the entire Bible by December 31 in as little as 12 minutes a day?
