Happy New Year 2018—Let’s Read through the Bible Together

One of my favourite disciplines is to read through the Bible each year, but I love to switch up how I do it. This year I’m using what John Piper recommended called Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan. It daily follows 4 different passages 25 days a month leaving room for catch-up or further meditation or study. Last year I used the 5 Day Bible Reading Program  which has also been updated specifically for 2018 and has a more chronological structure to it.

Do you want to join me?

Yes, I realize we’re already a couple days into the new year, but we can get on track together! Last year several of us read through the Bible and it was so encouraging to know we were not alone. It always helps having accountability while persevering through a challenging task. I say ‘task’ because it is a discipline that will require you to set aside devoted time, but also allows freedom to catch-up some days. If you’ve never done it, it will be so worth while. I will connect each month to encourage you and share a passage or two that stands out to me.

Connect with me at so I can include you on the monthly Read Through the Bible Together emails.

Be encouraged,

Live resolved for God’s glory!
