New Year Bible Reading Challenge

Last week, I briefly shared that I am challenging myself to read my Bible through this year.  This is not the first time I will have accomplished this challenge, but it has been a few years since I’ve been focused enough to do it.

As you know, one of the best measures to insure you accomplish a goal is to have accountability.  Having you come alongside me in this challenge isn’t just for you- it is for me also.  I need you! So collaboratively,  let’s do this together!

Each day at the top of my post for the day you will see the day’s reading.  Day 1 will be Jan. 1, 2013. It will look something like this:


Each Friday, we will have a roll call.  I’d love it if you will let us know each Friday how you did with the prior week’s reading and if there is anything we can do to encourage you by leaving a comment! And if you are a blogger, we will have a link-up available to post from your reading of the week OR any encouraging post.

And…I’m planning some awesome giveaways, at least monthly, to assist in keeping the inspiration going!

Here’s the link to the FREE printable download for the Bible reading schedule we are using.  You can also find it in the Goodies section in the menu above.

So who else is in?  We’d love to have you join us!

  1. I am so excited. This seems fun to connect with everyone on Fridays. Thank you for doing this. I am a stay at home mother with three boys. I do sell Christian jewelry at local events and church boutiques. I would love to give away a piece as well. I have never done a giveaway before (can you believe that). If you are interested email me. Blessings!

    1. How fun!! I love that you are volunteering this. 🙂 Super sweet. Sending you an email soon! 🙂

    Sooo excited to start this. Will try to get our ladies’ group at church to participate too! Accountability is key to success……it’s too easy for me to get lax and make excuses…….and once you get behind it’s hard to catch up!
