Read the Bible in 90 Days: Go

If you’re following our Bible reading plan for the year (our 2012 plan worked so well that we’re doing the same in 2013) you just finished reading through the Bible, if not, now is a perfect time to jump in and read the Bible in 90 days (or in 6 months or in a year).

Genesis Bible

Today’s reading is Genesis 1-16. Here is the rest of the schedule if you’d like to join us.

Congratulations to Savannah Grace (just turned 8) who completed reading through the Bible in 90 days for her first time. We’re very proud of you.

Why does our family believe that Bible reading is important? Well, we believe reading is important and we believe that the Bible is the most important book you can read.

We think that it’s unwise to invest more time into reading books about to invest into time spent reading the Bible.

Requiring our children to through the Bible at least one time each year has been one of our best/most important homeschooling decisions that we’ve made. Do not underestimate the importance and value of reading God’s Word, it does not return void.

One side note, this is not our children’s only daily time in the Word of God. They delve more deeply into the Scriptures  during our times of family worship, Bible memorization, school Bible reading and more.

    I have to tell you that because of your many posts on your blog and facebook about this Bible reading plan, I did a 90 day read through in Oct-Jan when I was in a very dark and difficult time. It was life changing. I’m currently doing it again. I want to thank you for encouraging me in this area, it has been transforming in my life. If anyone reading this is on the fence about joining Kimberly may I gently encourage you to do it? God will bless you with the time to get through it, the motivation to persevere, and a renewed (or brand new) LOVE for His word!

    Thank you for this post! When I told my (just turned) eight year old about your Savannah finishing the Bible in 90 days he was so encouraged! He has begun today and has decided to use the 6 month plan. Your blog is a blessing to me. Thank you!

    If I did not believe in God’s perfect Will, I would say this was a coincidence. This weekend I was thinking of reading the Bible in 90 days and this morning I printed off the bookmark (I believe the site I use is owned by Zondervan but I’m using my own Bible) and began my day one reading. Imagine my surprise when I saw this post in the afternoon!

    Thank you for mentioning the 90 day Bible reading awhile back. It has been percolating in my mind since then.

    I do have a question…because of the amount of reading I’ve feared that I won’t be really, really grasping all of it (I can spend days thinking about a single verse) so I’ve sort of given myself permission to read through as undistracted as possible but not to feel like I have to ponder every verse. Is this how you approach it as well – at least the first time you did it?

    Yes, this is how I approach this reading. Usually one or two things will specifically strike me during a days reading and I will meditate or think on that. It’s common for us (all those reading the same readings) to discuss things that we particularly noticed in a day’s reading, but I don’t think there is a way that you can think in depth about every single verse. We do that type of study at other times during the day.

    Hope that helps.

    I love this! I can’t believe you got a child to read the entire Bible in 90 days. I’m impressed. ;-) We do a devotional in our family, but have considered doing some type of reading plan like yours.

    On a side note, what is this “bookmark” that is mentioned in a previous comment? Where can you find this bookmark? Does it have the plan printed on it or something?

    Hi, please note that I am not endorsing this site as I’ve not read their other content. I simply printed this reading schedule bookmark to keep in my Bible.

    I hope you have time to answer this question, I just started this plan because you posted this and my children want to as well. I’m just wondering which bible do you have your 8 yr old read, and do you discuss the sexual content in it.or let it go??? (i’m reading genesis and can already see the questions arising about tricking someone into sleeping with you etc….) or am I just overthinking it???
