Did you know I have a YouTube Channel? You can check it out here. I love to encourage moms, especially the tired ones, to read the Bible. Here you can find videos on how to read your Bible. Things like:
– Why we need our Bibles
– What does the Bible say about anxiety?
– Truth and Tips on Prayer
– Does God really love us?
Also included are overviews for various books of the Bible. Books like, Ruth, Judges, and Philippians! Before you study a book of the Bible, you can watch one of these videos to get all of the background information you will need to study. All of these videos are available for free. I add one every month. This channel is designed to help you read God’s word, providing encouragement and practical tools you might need to make God’s word a priority in your life. I hope you will subscribe! You can check out my latest video here.
What moms aren’t tired? Maybe you feel like you don’t have time to spend with God because life is so busy and crazy. Right now it is summertime so my children are busy playing, doing some activities, but mostly they are on their own. I have the luxury of pouring myself a cup of coffee and spending thirty minutes or so with God in His word. It wasn’t always like that.
There was a season (not so long ago) when I was caring for five children, all under the age of eight. It was overwhelming and I felt tired all of the time. On top of that, we had just brought home a sweet little boy from China, so he was still adjusting. I would love to say I was consistent with my Bible reading and prayer time, but I wasn’t. It felt so hard to do it every single day.
This shouldn’t stop us from going forward. I decided during that season to read every day I could. Sometimes that meant one day a week. Often I would be able to read 3-4 days a week. Only rarely would I be able to do 6-7 days a week. The goal is not a number, but going forward is the goal. I hope I can encourage you to go forward. And if you need some help, want to join with some friends on the same journey as you – why not try the membership?
That’s why I created the “Let’s Read the Bible” community. Together we read through and study one book of the Bible per month. We have a private Facebook group, online videos, and lots of free resources. The best part is you get the Bible Reading and Study Guides (normally $20) for free each month. You can join us here monthly for $17. *Act quick, because after July 31, the price will be increasing!
