Welcome to the first check in post for the Bible in 90 Days with MomsToolbox!
I am thrilled that you have made the decision to read the entire Bible, cover to cover, in 90 days with me and the hundreds others who have registered for the challenge. Together, and with God, we can and will have read the entire Bible by July 25. (Wooo-Hooo!)
Today is our first day of reading, and our first weekly check in.
Each Monday morning I will post a check in post like this one to help you get ready for the week ahead of you and check in with others. The weekly check in post will also have helpful hints and updates to the program, so be sure to read it every week. I’ll try my best to keep it simple so as not to take away from your Bible reading time.
How and why must you check in?
I have guided thousands through reading the entire Bible in 90 days and have found that those who check in by commenting and emailing their mentors regularly have a much greater success rate. Because of this you MUST check in in two ways each week:
- You must leave a comment on the weekly check in post each Monday to let us know how you are doing.
- You must drop an email to your mentor to let her know how you are doing each week.
Both the email and comment can be as short or as long as you like. A simple “I’m up to date,” or “I’m 2 days behind, but plan to catch up by Wednesday,” will work. Some weeks I may ask a specific question for you to answer about your state of mind. (no quizzes, I promise!!) The important thing is that you acknowledge where you are and share that with the others reading, as well as your mentor who is there to encourage you and pray for you.
**If you registered by April 26 and have not received an email letting you know who your mentor is, please double check for an email regarding Bible in 90 Days mentor group. If you did not receive such an email, there could be an error in the email address we received. Please re-register.
If you’d like to tell us a little about yourself so you can ‘meet’ the members of our group here in the comments, feel free. You can also leave prayer requests and comment as you pray for others who have requested prayer.
This week’s resources
Download the following 3 sections of You Are Here in the Bible:
To prevent you from doing research where you have questions and take away from your precious reading time, Bible in 90 Days founder Ted Cooper wrote this resource to give you a bit of perspective as to what you will encounter in this week’s reading. If you have other questions, try not to research them, but just ask God to explain when the time is right and keep reading. If you must, keep a journal of all your questions to refer to once you have completed the 90 days of reading.
This week’s reading schedule:
- Day 1– Genesis 1:1 – Genesis 16:16
- Day 2–Genesis 17:1 – Genesis 28:19
- Day 3– Genesis 28:20 – Genesis 40:11
- Day 4– Genesis 40:12 – Genesis 50:26
- Day 5– Exodus 1:1 – Exodus 15:18
- Day 6– Exodus 15:19 – Exodus 28:43
- Day 7– Exodus 29:1 – Exodus 40:38
You can also download the Bible in 90 Days reading schedule or, if you are using the official Bible in 90 Days Bible, you already have it marked in your Bible.
Make it a point to read every day no matter what, even if you don’t have a block of time, read something. Carry your Bible with you everywhere throughout the day until you get your reading finished. Plan on it taking about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes per day.
Thanks so much for reading with me. Your reading encourages my reading… and the hundreds others, too, no doubt!
