Sarah and Stephen are doing a special “project” this fall. Yesterday Sarah sent out an e-mail to the Bright Lights summer traveling team, inviting them to do the same.

Anyone interested in doing a “speed read” through the Bible with me? (I’m thinking of something like 15 chapters a day, starting tomorrow and finishing Dec. 31st.) It’s something I’ve been interested in doing for a while, and now that conference season is over, it seems like a good time! …For me personally, I know that the fall/winter is a season where I can spend extra time in personal study and disciplines…I think my plan is to read 9 chapters in the morning (starting in Genesis), 2 chapters at lunch (Psalms and Proverbs), and 4 chapters before bed (starting in Matthew). But I’m sure each day will vary. 🙂
Love,
Sarah

Although it’s great to slowly digest a chapter or do word studies, there is a special perspective and understanding you receive when you read through the Bible at a faster pace. It causes you to step back and see the whole picture at once. I’m not doing it this time, but I wanted to put the idea out there in case any of you would like to join! If you are doing it too we’d love to hear from you!

  1. Sarah, thanks for the idea 🙂 I think I might try it!
    Grace, I just discovered your blog and it’s an encouragement to me. Thank you!

  2. This sounds like a great, very challenging thing to do. I’m so in!! I’ll start tomorrow. 🙂
    Thank you for writing about this.

    Have a lovely day! xxxx~Kelsey

  3. This sounds awesome! I so want to try it!! I will be crazily busy in Nov/Dec, but I will do my best when I can!

    Thank you for the challenge! I might run it by my siblings too. 🙂

  4. I’ve been waiting for something like this to come up…. so I’ll certanly be doing it! Thanks for the idea!

  5. Ooooo! I think I should do this! I’ve been wanting to get through the entire Bible, but haven’t quite succeeded. I think this would be my best bet. After completing it, one could always go back and re-read certain sections that needed more time.

  6. This is a great idea! I am going for it, but honestly I have an intense fall schedule and don’t know if I will be able to follow all the way through.

  7. i wanna try but since i go to a normal high school i dont have enough free time right now 🙁 BUT i Started the process of reading the entire bible all the way threw! my goal is to have read it all the way threw at least 7 times by the time im 24! 🙂 im excited to see what God teaches me! 🙂

  8. I am going to give it a try, but because of my busy fall schedule, I don’t know if I will make it all the way through by December 31st. Thanks for the encouragement!

  9. That’s my FB site and only invites can read it.

    Grace/Sarah, I like this reading plan for a good overview. While I am “retired”, I still feel as young as you are, in many ways. I’m still me, and I’m grateful the Lord has raised your family up to learn from Him and others, and to minister to others as well.

    I’m keeping you all in my prayers. Need to write again. It has been awhile since I’ve “spoken” with Sarah, and each of you. I’ve mostly spoken to Sarah, though.

  10. Have you heard of Bible in 90 days?? Great ministry with an incredible man of God. They have a program set up to read through the entire Bible, cover to cover, like a novel, in 90 days. Great way to see God’s story as a whole. And great program too….

  11. I think that is a really cool idea. i went to the conference in Willoughby, Ohio. I am just starting to follow your blog, and got to this article. I really like the idea. I am going to do it. And I will tell my friend about it too. She was also at that conference.
