A Specialty reading plans that take you through different parts of the Bible on different days, weeks, or months. A Blended Reading Plan. Reading the Bible in some way over 2 or 3 years.   I would also … [Read more...]

Another blessing is that when I miss a day, I just pick up without feeling that I have to read 20 chapters the next day.
