Day 1- DONE! And before noon, who knew?

So my day 1 reading was finished before noon – my husband didn’t believe me when I told him. I found that if I read while feeding my newborn baby then I can knock out 3-4 chapters. I’m reading online right now because that’s easier to see while my hands are tied up holding the baby.

So the first day covers creation, the fall, Cain and Abel, the tower of Babel, the flood, the covenant with Abraham, and Sarai and Hagar- Genesis really moves through the stories from Sunday School! Great to put them all together and in context rather than independent stories.

I think it’s interesting that the thing (having a newborn) that I felt would hold me back in my goal to read the Bible is actually making it possible. How’s your reading going?

    Hi, Kristen
    Did mine last night. Like to sleep on it, although last thing seems not as spiritual as first thing. But I’m pretty groggy first thing anyway.
    You might check out “The Light Speed Bible” — teaches speed reading with the Bible as the text. I haven’t learned to speedread, but the suggestions have helped me greatly to get past my first-grade reading eye-to-ear-to-brain. So slow!
    I agree about the context. This Light Speed Bible has revealed that, too — whole new light when you look in the small end of the telescope!

  2. Good for you! That’s awesome. I definitely get in a lot of great reading time when my babies are newborns. When they become mobile, that time tends to dwindle quite a bit.
