I look forward to reading

I just got this app because I decided I wanted to try and read the Bible in one year. I did not do much research, I just picked an app. God lead me to this app. It is wonderful. I expected it to give me a few verses to read everyday, but it is so much more. It includes daily scriptures from Psalms/Proverbs, the New Testament, and the Old Testament. It also includes a reading that follows up with the scripture you read. The reading helps break down some of the scripture that might have been hard to understand in that context. It has helped me relate what I have read into my daily life. Then it also includes prayers that you can use as you finish. What a wonderful tool.

The only request I have is a function that would allow highlighting or note taking. This obviously is not imperative, but would be a nice addition.

I finally read through the Bible in a year!

It has been a goal of mine to do this, but I have never been successful using a book or reading guide. I would start well, but struggled to stick with it. Last year I thought...if only there was an app, it would be so much easier. Nicky and Pippa Gumbel have created a way to make daily Bible reading a habit in my busy life. I love that I can listen to the scripture passages & commentary while I go for a walk. I love the added commentaries that tie the Old and New Testament passages together with a focus on Jesus and what he has done for us. Thank you!!

I’m Panicking

It’s December 4th and I will finish BiOY at the end of the month. This has been a daily part of my life for a year and I don’t know what I’ll do without it. I think I may just have to do this again. I mostly do the audio every morning on the treadmill. It’s about 25 minutes starting with commentary leading into Proverbs or Psalms then commentary, New Testament, commentary in the New Testament scripture then Old Testament with commentary. A friend told me its best to start the app on 1/1 and I agree. Unless I find something else on a similar format I think I will do the again.
