You asked... bible reading (with a giveaway!)
My question is around reading the Bible - during the quiet times you spend in the Scriptures, can you share what your process is in choosing what to read for the day?...Do you just open your Bible randomly and start reading? Are you led by the Holy Spirit as to what to read? Do you follow a reading schedule (i.e. read the Bible in a year)? Do you use study guides? Posted by: Tammy
I am no superhero in this department. Probably just like many of you I go through seasons in my life where I am more structured in this department than others. I prefer to use Bible study guides although I do not always have one that I am working on.
I am currently in a Bible study group with a few other women. We try to do one study in the Spring and one in the Fall. This past Spring we completed Beth Moore's study on Esther. Being in a group study provides so much accountability for me to actually complete my work in a specific time frame.
Hey Holly I was wondering what are you reading during your quite time? Posted by: Kalie
Currently as a church staff we are doing B90X, an extreme read through the Bible in 90 days. It is serious. I am really enjoying it. Although I have read through the Bible before, I have never done it in such a short amount of time. Reading through such large portions at a time has given me a fresh perspective on the Word as a whole.
I am taking it as serious as the Daniel Fast that we did last fall. It takes at least 30 minutes a day (usually more, especially when reading about seemingly endless verses about blood and skin diseases:)) I personally am reading on my iPhone (using You Version) in the New Living Translation (I will probably switch to NIV when the content is not as narrative). I believe God is going to do great things through our staff as we do this together.
Do you have any online or written daily devotional recommendations. I'm trying to find one that focuses on family/children/marriage. I get overwhelmed searching for them, so wanted to see if you had any suggestions to try. I've been active in church my whole life but really want to dive deeper and get into the scriptures on my own. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks so much! Posted by: Miranda
Here are some great studies/resources that I reccomend...
-Growing Kids God's Way (raising kids)
-5 Love Languages (marraige/family)
-Love and Respect (marraige)
-The Amazing Collection (walk through the Bible)
-Lord I want to know you (great individual study, anything by Kay Arthur is)
-Believing God (my all time favorite Beth Moore study and you can do the study online)
And now for the giveaway part... I will be giving away one copy of each of the following books. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. You cacn share a resource that you love or just leave you name. Just be sure to include you email address so that we can contact you!

For a supplemental resource to your regular study, I love Beth Moore's book, Praying God's Word
