Tips to Help You Enjoy Bible Reading

Tips to help you enjoy Bible reading

Welcome to my new series on tips to ENJOY Bible reading! I’m so glad you are here. Pull up a chair, get comfy, and dig into these great tips on how to (really, truly, honestly!) LOVE and look forward to your time studying the Bible. You’ll be so happy you did!

Some of the posts will be more abstract and some will be practical tips. If I’m feeling brave, I might even throw in a fun weekend video. My prayer is that God will move in our hearts, and we’ll be a group of women — mothers, ladies, friends, sisters, daughters — HUNGRY for God!

Why I’m Saying “Yes” to the Small

Go big or go home. That’s seems to have been my life motto, somehow either born within me or bred throughout my years. I’m a competitor. Valedictorian. Type-A-Organizer. Achiever. Hard worker.

Maybe Following God is Alot Like Kindergarten

  My son was crying, and I was barely holding back tears. Sometimes being a little kid is hard. Sometimes being a mommy is harder. My day had been filled with more questions that answers. Work stress and decisions — good? bad? who knows? — combined with juggling life responsibilities had me waving the white…
