Welcome to the February 2020 True Love: Bible reading challenge! If this is your first time here, then I’m so glad to have you!
Each month I host a monthly Bible reading plan and journal challenge to help our community enjoy reading God’s Word together and encourage our hearts to be faithful to Him. Together, we have completed over 40 Bible reading plans, including both annual and monthly reading challenges. I’ve developed all sorts of strategies to help us read God’s word faithfully and there is nothing like this monthly system we are working through together.

Many readers have requested that I list our monthly resource at the beginning of this announcement post because you already know you want it and don’t need the details. So here you are. Order the True Love Bible Reading Plan: Embracing the Father’s Affection.
Check out the details of the challenge below!
True Love: Embracing the Father’s Affection Bible Reading Plan Challenge
For God so loved…John 3:16. You’ve read the verse before. Maybe you can recite it. But somehow, you struggle with perfect love. You don’t always feel loved. It seems you can’t express love well. Perhaps you grew up in a broken home and a father’s love was missing in your life. Or maybe the members of your family all lived under the same roof, but the disconnect was obvious.
Regardless of your past or present relationships, God loves you. He’s never stopped loving you from even before you came into this world. And he longs to draw you closer to his heart, where you can learn to love deeper than you ever imagined possible.
While much of the world focuses on chocolate and roses (I won’t be mad if you send me either!), let’s allow God’s incredible, miraculous love to saturate our souls and spill over into everyday living through the True Love Bible Reading Plan & Journal.
What could happen if you took a month to write out a love letter to God each day alongside your Bible reading?

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
Here are a few comments about the journals we’ve developed:
I’m so loving this reading plan and journal! While I’ve done your reading plans with my girlfriends, this is the first time I’ve used the journal. Prayer-life changing! As a seminary student, I’m in the Bible daily, but this short journaling exercise is focusing and refining my prayer life tremendously! Thank you for your obedience to God in creating this tool.
Love the simple format! As a mom of little ones, it is so doable! Thank you!
Thank you for doing these. They help me so much not only to encourage me to read my Bible more, but to apply what I read.
Love these journals! Please keep them coming!
Ready? We’ll begin February 1st, just as we do each month!
By His grace,
