She Reads Truth

Without going into too much detail about my personal life (because, believe it or not, I don't share everything on this blog), let me just say that #SheReadsTruth is very necessary right now.

I'd venture to say that regardless of what is going on it your life, you probably need it. Unless you're already doing some sort of daily Bible study on your own. I was not.

Let me rewind for a second.

One of my responsibilities at work is to research bloggers to review our products. It's fun. A couple weeks ago I found Kacia at CoconutRobot. I started following her from my work Twitter account. Between my two accounts, I started seeing the hashtag #shereadstruth quite often. I finally clicked on it and realized that it was a Bible study that Kacia and Maggie started, and there seemed to be A LOT of participants.

I could think of only 1 reason I shouldn't join. Time. It takes time. I don't have an abundance of time… though that's mostly because I use my time poorly. I spend it on things like Facebook, television, Pinterest, and other random things. Not having time for God is just not okay.

So I stopped at CVS on the way home from work on Thursday and bought a new, cute journal. (New, cute journals make new journaling-type projects MUCH more exciting.) That night

after Jansen went to bed, I did my research. I read the website, downloaded the App, and got started.

It's an App-based Bible study, which is fantastic because you don't have to order a book. You don't have to tote several things around with you. You don't have to decide if you're going to take notes in the book or in your journal. You just need a blank journal. (You actually don't even NEED that, but I highly recommend that you journal through it.)

As of the moment I'm writing this, I am on Day 4. I was lucky (?) enough to learn about it and join the day they started a new study. It's a few verses and a short reading every day. I like it that way. Just give me a small chunk to think about. If you make me read an entire chapter for my study, I won't get nearly as much out of it. (Unless you're Beth Moore. Then you can give me anything and I'll get plenty out of it.)

I'm telling you this for two reasons.

1. I may be writing about viagra alternative it every now and then. For the most part, my studies and journals are very personal so I probably won't be sharing too much. But it's always possible.

2. I want you to join. And we can talk about it on Twitter or Instagram. Or even email! LET'S DO THIS!

Check out the website and see what you think. I think you'll find that it is both uplifting and manageable.

    Isn’t God good? I’d been reading about She Reads Truth at Maggie’s place and finally looked into it last week. I use my computer since I don’t have a smart phone with apps. It’s a great way to study the bible. Can’t wait to read what you share about it in the coming weeks.

    I’ve been loving it as well since starting this weekend. It’s been a very rich time and I love seeing everyone else’s beautiful journal pictures on instagram…although sometimes I feel like the only woman in the world without super cute handwriting. :)

    I’m buying a journal today at Target and starting! I saw you’re tweet about it this weekend and looked at the website while we were in Austin! Hope to be able to connect with you on this a little more especially since we’re not going to be with you guys in Galveston! : (

    I started SRT with this study as well – I’ve been reading a lot about it on Twitter and decided to jump in! I’m also doing a “Read the Bible in a Year” plan – but I like having an actual Bible study to follow, with questions to think about. Otherwise I find I just read to check it off my to-do list for the day and don’t mull it over at all!

    I was lucky enough to start doing She Reads Truth on the day they started the new topic, too. I heard about it through some women who are heading up the Influence conference in October. Have you heard about that? There’s a link to the website in my latest blog post. (not trying to self-promote). I’ve never been to a blogger conference before but this one is for Christian bloggers. It looks really cool and I’d love to go.

    I was planning to start today, and I didn’t. I have no good excuse.
    And after writing that I realize that today isn’t over, so I’m going to make a point to get to it today. Amazing we can always find reasons not to start something that we should do… ha!

    Thanks for sharing! I’m a little late to the party, but I bought a journal on Thursday and I’m going to start! What a great idea. Also, bonus? Today’s passage is one that has been really significant to me over the past few years. :)
