  1. Doing ok on the challenge, missed a couple of days, but getting up at 4 some mornings just wear me out. But I’m reading almost daily, I try to read daily and most days I can

  3. Really loved today’s reading in Nehemiah πŸ™‚ So happy to be a part of this! Continuing to be inspired by His Word!

    1. lol I’m guessing this was Friday’s? All those names? (I didn’t pronounce them in my head- confession.) But Saturday’s Nehemiah reading will GRAB you! πŸ™‚

  4. I so want to study this book with a group. I was notified in November that I had won it, and I really had felt God was leading me in it, and I still do. But I have not received the book, I wrote snap last week, to ask what had happened but no response. Maybe I will win now and can bring it to my church? That would be a great blessing.

  12. Nancy Miller says:

    Yeah! I’m on track! This is a great accomplishment to be on track. I have been reading daily devotion from the Bible for over ten years but the one thing I haven’t completed after many tries is to read the Bible through in one year. I noticed several scriptures from this weeks reading, I have previously studied but forgot the little details. Brings a smile. Today specifically blessed in being reminded that the joy of the LORD is my strength from Nehemiah 8:10b .
    Thank you Rachel for the encouragement and daily posts. Praying for Taylor and a blessed weekend.

    1. Great Job Nancy, I’m right in there with you. In 30 years of walking with my Lord, I’m sad to say that I have yet (to my utter frustration!) to accomplish reading through the whole Bible, especially in one year! I have done many in depth studies, even tried the “Read through in 90 days” approach-failed. Just got too easily distracted and bogged down by all those great details that jumped out at me. πŸ˜‰ I usually fade out around all the lists and geneologies, and until recently, was rather intimidated by the book of Revelations. (Beth Moore’s Then and Now study cured that for me!)

      I started this plan late, on Jan 14th, but have stayed on course this week. I’ve already caught up on Nehemiah, and tackled all of Ezra this morning. (Guess that was in backwards order, huh?) Can’t wait to see how the Lord speaks through His Word to all of us this year! Even if I am late checking in, or don’t at all some weeks, it helps knowing so many others are here, reading faithfully, checking in and encouraging one another. I can always read the messages that have been left whenever I have a minute, and I’m sure I will feel more motivated than ever to stay on track!

      I too Thank You Rachel! I’ve spent some time familiarizing myself with your entire site, including reading your two prior series posts and really enjoyed them. Really appreciate having such an uplifting place to come to. πŸ™‚

      1. YAY!! That is so very awesome on the reading! You can do it. Just keep going along little by little. Day by day.Thank you so much for your comment. Blessings to you!

  13. Melinda T says:

    The readings are going well, I’m just real bad with checking in!

  14. Deb smith says:

    I just found you and I am just starting the challenge. I’ll let you know how it goes. Thanks so much for the encouragement.

    1. So happy to have you on board! You can catch up gradually- no sweat! You are welcome. Enjoy!

  15. I’m so glad God led me to your site on Pinterest, I’m really enjoying reading God’s word every day. It really helps knowing I’m doing it with others, I look forward to checking my emails to see yours for the days reading, and to see what you have to say. God Bless everyone who is doing the challenge and may He continue to strengthen all of us.

  16. Katie Roylance says:

    Thank you so much for encouraging and leading. I am actually on track with the reading, and I love it.

  17. I’ve been doing my own Bible reading schedule for some time now, but I’m cheering you all on! What a wonderful challenge.

  18. Also wanted to share that our children’s ministry is starting a new program. Iut will take the kids through the Bible in 2 years. How perfect!

  19. Sherri Jackson says:

    I am doing the Bible reading but am a little behind because I was sick last week.

    1. Hope you are feeling better!! Thanks for checking in and hang in there. You can do it!

  20. I just read about the study, but I hope to begin today:)
    Hugs, Jen

  21. Heather P says:

    I have been meeting the challenge. It is different reading 4 chapters a day. Takes a little longer. I did find a verse I had never “seen” or realized in Genesis this week.

  22. It is going great so far. I am still on track and still loving this plan!

  23. Sharon LeBoubon says:

    I have been loving your posts and I ‘ve been doing your Bible reading challenge……I am new to FB and Pinterest it has been so much fun. Have a great weekend!!!!!

  24. This would be a great gift for a family member who is trying to let some things go.

  25. Hi Rachel, I would love to win this book! Especially since my word for the year is Release! HA! I had signed up for another study through January but would love to lead a study this year from my blog with some readers if they are willing! Well, thanks for the chance! In His Grace, Dawn

  26. I’m reading through a different plan which goes through the entire Bible (I have to focus on 1 book at a time, not 4!). I did it last year, and once again I am in love with how many details I’m noticing and how much of the “bigger picture” I’m seeing. It’s definitely worth doing every few years!

  27. Ali Holley says:

    I just signed up for a bible study using this book from Proverbs 31 Ministries. Would be great to win it.

  28. My son and I started on January 1. We are both still on track. i have gotten a little ahead because I love to read. I am so enjoying the challenge and look forward to my time in His word each day. Thank you!!

  29. Erin Benskin says:

    I hope I win a copy of this book, would love to read it. I supposively won a copy in a giveaway a few months ago, and they NEVER sent it : (

  30. I’m right there with ya! So glad to be here!

  31. I am reading every day , have nit missed a day. Really enjoying soaking in Gods word and promises.

  32. I got behind, so going to restart and may take me longer to finish.

  33. I didn’t think I would keep up with it but I am doing great so far.

  34. Still playing catch-up as I started late. Only a little over 3 days behind though! I’m really enjoying Acts! πŸ™‚

  35. VeronicaS says:

    I’m a little behind in Acts, but caught up on everything else. I found this plan on my YouVersion app, so it helps that I have that on my phone everywhere I go.

  36. I’m right on track, Praise God! Thanks for being an encouragement to so many!

  37. Because I am working on letting go, thank you!

  43. Last year was the first time I successfully read the Bible through in a year, and I’ve started it again this year.

  44. My Bible reading is going well. I’m doing Beth Moore’s Patriarchs study at church, and I have enjoyed the double reading in Genesis. Thanks for keeping me on track!
