Wow! The holidays went by quickly, and my Christmas and New Year blogging break is over. I’m happy to be back but glad I took the time to rest, recharge, and spend quality time with my family.
I’m starting Bible in 90 Days again today! If you haven’t ever accepted the challenge, start today! I’m reading along with Jessica at Jezamama and am excited to get started tonight! Reading the Bible in such a short period of time works very well for me. I feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment and can more easily see the big picture by reading from cover to cover very quickly. It’s not too late for YOU to start!
