My new view for a couple days while hubby works on fixing the backed up plumbing in our house 🙊 Lots of unforeseen expenses, ugh. 😓 Well, my little daughter and I are making the most of it. 😬 Bible reading and working on new designs for my Etsy shop. I didn‘t bring my big beautiful Bible, just this little purse-size KJV.

Would anyone like to share thoughts /takeaways/ favorite verses from the #BibleBuddyRead‘s readings from this past week? 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, 1 Peter, and 2 Peter 🙌🏻 #WeeklyWrapUp

Allylu Just finished Thessalonians and 1 Peter today. Are you planning on doing another Bible Study in 2023? I‘m trying to decide where to go from here. 1mo
BookBabe Hi @Allylu , I see that you have since found my previous post about doing a “Power Read the Bible in 60 Days” buddy read, but if that is not something you‘re interested in right now, you could check out the Bible studies from the Daily Grace Co.— they are really lovely: https://thedailygraceco.com/collections/all-bible-studies 1mo

HUGE NEWS!!📢😃Calling *all* Litsy family (male, female, Christian, non): If you‘ve ever wanted to read the most popular book of all time—the Bible—this is your chance to buddy read it in just TWO MONTHS!Consider this your official invitation to join me in this adventure: Power Read The Bible In 60 Days With Jeff Anderson. I‘ll be doing this plan on the free YouVersion Bible app https://www.bible.com/app Please share! ⬇️Continued in comments⬇️

BookBabe A few tips (which come from my experience of reading the Bible in a year ending December 31, 2022):
1. Plan ahead. Set aside a specific time every day designated for your reading and stick to it. Block it off on your calendar and planner, and set a reminder. Making it a daily routine at the same time will set you up for success.
2mo
BookBabe
2. Get up early. If you can get up well before everyone else in your household, you can have peace and quiet before people are needing you, before the phone starts ringing, and before you feel compelled to start your workday.
2mo
BookBabe 3. Try not to get behind. It is really hard to get caught up if you get behind (I learned this the hard way!) Do what you need to do to make it work – try to get it all done in the morning, but if you can‘t, finish your day‘s reading during breaks, during lunch, during children‘s naptime if you‘re a stay at home parent, during dinner, at bedtime. 2mo
See All 25 Comments
BookBabe 3. (Cont) Any chance you get. But in my experience, I have found that getting the reading done first thing in the morning is the likeliest way for it to get done. 2mo
BookBabe 4. Immersion read. I find that I can read a lot faster and stay focused better if I have somebody reading to me while I‘m reading with my eyes. I don‘t find that listening is sufficient because things distract me and then I don‘t realize how much I missed. 2mo
BookBabe 4. (Cont) So I do much better to sit down and be focused, listening and reading visually at the same time. Some people can speed read and stay focused without immersion reading—if that‘s you, I say stick with what works! 2mo
BookBabe 5. Speed up the narration if necessary. The creator of this plan estimates that it should take about an hour to read every day. I‘m not a fast reader, but that‘s another reason that immersion reading helps keep me on pace. You also might want to speed up the narration as you listen in the Bible app. 2mo
BookBabe 6. Keep annotation super simple. Don‘t try to do a deep study, note taking, or highlighting this go around. I recommend using one color of post-it flags to just mark anything and everything that you want to come back to for any reason – whether to look it up, research it, memorize it, etc. 2mo
BookBabe 6. (Cont) Our goal this time is to read it all the way through in just 60 days, so anything that slows us down won‘t be conducive to that goal. 2mo
BookBabe 7. Choose the Bible version that is easiest for you to read. Some popular versions for readability are CSB, NIV, and NLT. I recommend choosing a passage (John 1 is a good one, or perhaps Ephesians 4), and comparing the different versions online, at Bible.com (the website of the YouVersion Bible App), or Bible Hub, or your site of choice. 2mo
BookBabe 7. (Cont) See which version is the most easily readable for you, and pick that version for this 60-Day Power Read. 2mo
BookBabe 8. Post regularly, using #BibleBuddyRead hashtag so we can all see each others bibles, reading setups, and progress! 2mo
BookBabe *disclaimer regarding YouVersion: they are owned by LifeChurch pastored by Craig Groeschel, and I have heard that they are not the most biblically sound or biblically discerning. However, though I skip over the daily speaker videos they post, I find the app to be very useful and valuable, 2mo
BookBabe and I appreciate that it is completely free and you can access many different Bible versions through it for free, many of which offer free corresponding narration. Please make your own prayerful decision about it and let the Lord lead you.
2mo
BookBabe I‘m so excited to have you join me on this exciting and bold adventure!

(I won‘t be doing official signup forms or tagging everyone this time, due to time constraints. Every minute of my free time needs to go toward reading! However, if anyone has time and wants to volunteer to handle all that, please let me know!)
2mo
BookBabe Please share and tag anyone you think might be interested in joining! And please invite your friends who aren‘t yet on Litsy, too! 2mo
quirkyreader Get ready to blow your mind with the Bible. 2mo
BookBabe @quirkyreader Yes and Amen! 💯%!! 😃🙌🏻 1mo
Daisey I‘ve very much enjoyed this year‘s reading, but my plan is to slow down for next year and delve into some of the books & passages more deeply rather than another complete read. 1mo
Allylu I‘m with @Daisey. I don‘t want to do a full reread again next year. @Daisey Let me know what you come up with and I will do the same. 1mo
Daisey @Allylu I‘m not planning anything in advance or very specific for now and may use various resources next year. I do plan to randomly continue to share my Bible reading here with the hashtag. 1mo
wordslinger42 I have found that, for me, fast-paced reading plans of the Bible aren't fulfilling. I really enjoy savoring and reading slowly whichever book of the Bible I'm reading (right now, that's Daniel and Luke), so this challenge isn't for me. I hope you enjoy it, though, and if you ever do something that's slower paced, please let me know 💜 1mo
BookBabe @wordslinger42 @Daisey @Allylu I‘ve heard great things about taking time with a specific book of the Bible — reading it over and over again until it really soaks in, as John MacArthur recommends. 👌🏻 I want to read the Bible many different ways— slowly, quickly, in-depth study, repetition, reading chronologically, and also different versions (as @quirkyreader inspired me to do). 1mo
quirkyreader @Daisey and @Allylu an idea for 2023 could be to focus on Paul‘s letters. I try to do an in-depth study of one letter a year. 1mo

Let‘s chat about the amazing Epistles of Paul we just read—Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Thessalonians!😃🙌🏻 What verses stood out most? Any favorites? #BibleBuddyRead #WeeklyWrapUp

BookBabe @mom_of_4 A little background on the #BibleBuddyRead: we started in January 2022, following the 1-year plan in the book you see here in this pic, which a friend had gifted to me. Some don‘t choose to follow that book and just use the hashtag to share whatever they‘re currently reading in the Bible, whether with a different plan or no plan at all. Either way is fine, the goal is to be in the Word every day! 😊 2mo
BookBabe I‘m a huge fan of Ephesians 4 & 5 —I‘ve read them so many times. I often enjoy listening to the musical reading of them on this recording by Grace Community Church titled “The New Life”: https://music.apple.com/us/album/the-new-life-ephesians-4-1-7-11-32-ephesians-5-... 2mo
See All 9 Comments
BookBabe Also, Galatians 5:16-26 is so important in teaching how to walk by the [Holy] Spirit and not in the flesh. 2mo
BookBabe I really appreciate how Paul writes. I can feel the love flowing off the pages. His intros and closings especially communicate this, and it warms my heart. 2mo
BookBabe An example: 1 Thess 1:2-4 “We always thank God for all of you, making mention of you constantly in our prayers. We recall, in the presence of our God and Father, your work produced by faith, your labor motivated by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you” ❤️❤️❤️ 2mo
CogsOfEncouragement may have power, together with all the Lord‘s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭18‬-‭19‬ ‭NIV‬‬
2mo
mom_of_4 @BookBabe I tend to just read. Sometimes I will mix the books up. But my favorite is Romans. 2mo
BookBabe @CogsOfEncouragement Yes, amen! 🙏🏻❤️ I have that highlighted!🙌🏻 @mom_of_4 Romans is an excellent book! The podcast Real Christianity has been doing an in-depth study of Romans, I highly recommend it! Very biblically sound teaching. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/real-christianity/id1408224071 (It‘s also on Spotify and YouTube) 1mo

1 & 2 Corinthians are such incredible reads! Which verses stood out to you the most? #BibleBuddyRead #WeeklyWrapUp

BookBabe There are so many poignant verses. I think the one that has stood out the most is 1 Corinthians 5:9-13. 2mo
BookBabe The most important of that passage is verse 11: "But actually, I wrote you not to associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister and is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or verbally abusive, a drunkard or a swindler. Do not even eat with such a person.” (CSB) 2mo

Or in this case, Multi-Week Wrap-Up 😬🙈
I haven‘t been able to keep up with posting as much as I‘d like…My hubby, our daughter, and both her grandmas and I all have our birthdays in September & October. Add that to what is already a very busy season of life and, well, you get the idea. So here‘s an update on the #BibleBuddyRead‘s progress:
☑️Ezekiel ☑️Daniel ☑️Psalms ☑️Romans

Would you like to share your thoughts?

BookBabe With all these birthdays, and especially trying to get enough sleep to keep in good health, I‘ve managed to get behind, so if you have too, you‘re not alone! Seems I can only read the Bible at a relatively quick pace if I‘m the only person in the room, and that generally only happens if I‘m willing/able to get up very early, before everyone else. So now I‘m playing catch-up. 😳 3mo
Roary47 You are not alone! Between Dance Class, Music Class, School, Work, etc I can only focus read in the early hours. 3mo
See All 8 Comments
Roary47 I‘m working my way through Ezekiel, and I‘m just seeing a similar pattern for Jerusalem not doing so good and they are being told they will be in trouble with being destroyed. 3mo
BookBabe The prophets are slower reads for me, and while I‘ve preferred the CSB version for most books of the Bible so far, I find that not to be the case for the prophets. I‘ve been comparing versions for Ezekiel in particular and I think the ESV is preferable for the prophets. Maybe that‘ll be one of the next versions I read. I‘m trying to stick with the CSB for this read, while supplementing with other versions as needed and as time allows. 3mo
BookBabe @Roary47 I‘m still working through Ezekiel too! 🙈 I have my alarm set for 5:30am to get up and get back to reading (!!!) but I‘m tempted to just get up now and get after it since I don‘t seem to be sleeping anyway 😂 3mo
Mimi28 Happy Belated Birthday to you and your whole family!! 😊❤️🙏🏽 if I did dress up for Halloween would be the bride of Frankenstein with all of my grey hairs sprouting around my edges lately and I could be wearing an apron that says “carbs… carbs…” lol. I have been writing letters to God as I journal. It helps. My Bible reading is off and on also. 😊❤️🙏🏽 3mo

Having finished the book of Acts, the #BibleBuddyRead is spending the rest of September reading the book of Jeremiah! 🙌🏻

quirkyreader What always gets me about Acts was how God was able to help bring about change. Saul becoming Paul. He goes from being a worldly person who is following the crowd and persecuting believers, aiding in Stephen‘s demise. Then meeting Jesus and God. They changed his heart. He became a person full of love for his neighbour, and sought redemption for his acts. 4mo
BookBabe @quirkyreader Yes! That gives me so much hope. If God could do this with Paul, He could save anyone! Nobody is beyond redemption. We need to keep praying for those who aren‘t yet saved! 4mo

Daisey I'm very much appreciating this read of Acts as well. I've read it through before, but having recently read more of the Old Testament, especially Isaiah, and the Gospels, it's making more of an impact this time. 5mo
CogsOfEncouragement I appreciate this passage so much: But Peter said, “By no means, Lord, for I have never eaten anything unholy and unclean.” Again a voice came to him a second time, “What God has cleansed, no longer consider unholy.”

which I will make,
will remain before me”—

"so your offspring and your
name will remain.

quirkyreader Isaiah teaches us not to give up on God. He does things in his own time when he knows it‘s right. Isaiah builds upon the teachings from Job. And then Jeremiah builds upon the teachings of Isaiah. It all moves in circles. 5mo

Today the #BibleBuddyRead commences 3 weeks in the book of Isaiah!
“Isaiah proclaimed a message to urge [the Jews] to repentance and covenant fidelity with the Lord, while also preaching about the hope of Jesus Christ. As we read Isaiah thousands of years later, may we also be reminded to cling to obedience in the Lord, remain faithful to His Word, and persistently remember the hope that Jesus Christ offers us every single day.”-The Bible Handbook

Allylu Just finished Isaiah a few days ago and I‘m on to Jeremiah, continuing with Ezekiel and Proverbs. 5mo

BookBabe “Reading through the prophetic books can seem difficult; they are often confusing and foreign to us, and they speak broadly of destruction and doom. For modern readers, this presents us with a unique set of challenges in our study. However, knowing the context of Isaiah and understanding the purpose of God sending the prophets helps us immensely as we approach these books.” 5mo

Are you ready for this, #BibleBuddyRead friends? We‘re reading Song of Solomon, aka Song of Songs! 😮 And also Psalms 107-128. I don‘t know about you, but I had to heavy-hit the commentaries for Song of Songs! YouTube videos too. Please share the resources you‘ve discovered! I‘ve been looking for study guides on this book and haven‘t found any yet.

CogsOfEncouragement I really like the Thru the Bible series by J Vernon McGee. It comes in a lot of different versions. (One book, two books, over 20 books.) 6mo
BookBabe @CogsOfEncouragement thanks, I‘m checking it out! ☺️ 6mo

It‘s time for some #WeeklyWrapUp book talk for the #BibleBuddyRead!

This past week we read the entire book of Ecclesiastes, as well as Psalms 97-106.
I‘m really curious what you thought of Ecclesiastes in particular…for me, this reading was very different from my first.

Favorite (or most memorable) verse(s) from the week?

What are your thoughts/takeaways?

What stood out to you the most from what we read?

Daisey My favorite passage is the beginning of Ecclesiastes chapter 3. It continually reminds me that things change and we don‘t always have to do the same things. 6mo
CogsOfEncouragement I agree with Daisey Ecc 3:1-8 helps me keep things in perspective. I need to focus on the priorities of the season I am in. I strive to enjoy each season - for instance: my kids are nearly grown, I do not mourn for when they were tiny, I enjoy life with them at this stage. 6mo
quirkyreader I third it. I recite 3 everyday especially to get me ready for the day. 6mo

It‘s time for some #WeeklyWrapUp book talk for the #BibleBuddyRead!

This past week we read the entire Gospel of John. ❤️

What was your favorite (or most memorable) verse or verses that you read this week?

What are your thoughts/takeaways?

What stood out to you the most from what we read?

What did you learn?

BookBabe As I mentioned in my previous separate post, I was really floored that Jesus actually prayed for us, His believers, in John 17:20–26. I‘ve read John before, definitely 3.5 years ago when I was first saved, and probably again after that, but it really struck me differently this time. Everything was so much more real and vivid and poignant. I‘m sure some of that has to do with a more mature walk, and might also be partly thanks to the CSB version. 6mo
CogsOfEncouragement One of the great encouragements from John is that he records many times Jesus slips away from angry leaders, a crowd wanting to make Him king or those who would kill him. His crucifixion was at His will and at His time.
John 4:3, 6:15, 7:1, 7:6, 7:30, 7:32, 7:43, 7:45&46, 8:20, 10:31, 10:39, 11:8, 11:53&54, 11:57, 12:36, 18:4-11

Get excited, #BibleBuddyRead friends—this week we‘re reading the book of John! I broke out the big guns for this one, the MacArthur Study Bible, because I don‘t want to miss a thing. ❤️

I love MacArthur‘s comment: “The reader must prayerfully and meticulously explore the book, in order to discover the vast richness of the spiritual treasures that the apostle, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, has lovingly deposited in his gospel.”

CogsOfEncouragement So much to cling to in today‘s reading. John 3:17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. 6mo

Hi #BibleBuddyRead friends, congratulations on finishing the book of Job! 😃🙌🏻
Any thoughts, takeaways, verses that stood out? 🙂

quirkyreader This is coming from my extensive study of Job circa 2019. Verses that stood out were during my study pre-read were 1:21,4:5-6,4:17,5:2,5:9,8:13-19,11:11-12,21:22,22:21-22,28:12-13 and 34:11. 6mo
quirkyreader And while during the study I found many more. When I revisit this study, you know it can all change once again. Congratulations to everyone who has made it this far. As we all know, some of the chapters and books can be a bit overwhelming. And finding that can help you explore it even more. (edited) 6mo
BookBabe @quirkyreader Agreed! Thank you for sharing! ☺️ 6mo

Okay #BibleBuddyRead friends, who would like to share some thoughts on the first 21 chapters of Job? 😬

Verses that stood out?

#WeeklyWrapUp

BookBabe I‘ll go first… I have a lot of thoughts… 😮 🤔 Well, my main takeaway is that Job did an astoundingly good job of not sinning in his distress. This is a man who really has mastered walking in the spirit and not in the flesh. Still praising God even after all the misfortune that has befallen him. 🙌🏻 6mo
BookBabe Also, is anyone else thinking that Job is not going to have friends after this? 😬 At first when his friends came and sat to mourn with him for seven days without even speaking a word, I thought “wow, what compassionate and loyal friends he has.” But then once they opened their mouths, well, yikes. 😳 I don‘t think they‘re going to be friends anymore after this, do you? 😬 6mo

jdiehr Job 19:25 "For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth." I love when I find the verse that inspired a hymn I know and love ❤ 6mo
BookBabe @jdiehr yes! Love that verse! 6mo
quirkyreader For this I‘m going back to notes from 2019, when I study this chapter on another cycle I know that I will have more. What stood out at that time was 1:21, 4:5-6, 4:17, 5:2, 5:9, 8:13-19, 11:11-12, and 21:22. 6mo
