A Great Way to Start a New Year!


Happy New Year to you!!

I hope you have a wonderful first day of the first month of this fresh slate we're blessed with each year.

While any time is a good time to read the Bible, January 1st is an obvious choice to begin to read the Bible through in a year.  And a great way to do that is by using the You Version app on your smart phone, tablet, or computer!

I used this reading plan for the first time last year and loved it!  I could pick up my phone anywhere and have my reading plan at my fingertips.  And as a person who loves to see progress on my 'to do' lists, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the little graph each day showing me my reading progress for the year:)

Another benefit to this app is that you can choose different styles of reading plans.  Last year I chose the chronological plan and absolutely loved it.  It was so interesting to see exactly where all of those prophets fit into the timeline of the Old Testament!  You can also choose different translations to read.  This year I have decided to read with the Amplified version since I have never read that version through.

Of course, there is always the traditional way of reading your Bible through--with a hard copy and a reading plan chart (or by simply reading about 6 chapters a day).  Reading it is the important thing!

Happy reading!
