A Big Commitment

Today was our first Sunday Morning Bible Study piece of the one year Bible-reading challenge that I have dubbed, "The Feast". I have to admit that the commitment is a big one. We're reading large chunks of Scripture every single day.

But the women have bought in better than I imagined. They're talking about what they're reading. They're on Facebook asking questions and keeping each other accountable. I know that this is how it should be, but this is how it should be!

I can't take credit. This idea is an old one. It's not like I'm the first person to say, "Hey! Let's read the Bible in a year!" In fact, the church that my dad serves is doing something very similar. Although it is not an original idea, it's powerful. Imagine 30 women reading the same thing, thinking the same God-inspired thoughts. Imagine 30 women who are completely on the same page because they are actually reading the same page!

I'm amazed at what God is doing, and I can't wait to see what's next!

Falyn, The Feast is a one year Bible reading that goes through the Bible chronologically. Each week I upload the reading assignment, a memory verse, and a fill-in-the-blank outline, as well as a completed outline, timeline, and article from the previous week's reading. It's primarily for the Sunday School class that I get to teach, but all of the materials are on the website.
