Bucket List Update: Bible in 90 days? Check!

About a week and a half ago, I quietly checked off one of the items on my bucket list {and my 100 books list, how about that?  ca-ching!}.  My goal was to complete the Bible in 90 days.  I did that, and even finished within 79 days!





If you have the chance to do this at any point, I encourage it.  I've been Catholic my entire life, went to Catholic school for grade school and even took part in youth group in high school.  But until I was 33 {that is still odd, saying I am 33.  just sayin'.}, I had never read the bible from beginning to end.





I can't say it has changed my life.  But it has definitely reminded me that I am a Christian...and should live a more Christian life.  So maybe it has changed me. {wink}



As part of this group, you can sign up to get reminders of that days readings via Facebook, get daily reminders by subscribing to Amy's blog, and so many more ways.





I started with my trusty old bible, and then I moved on to using the the Kindle app (on my computer) for this.  The pages were larger.  And the best part?  I could highlight and bookmark till my heart was content.  With just a click.

I fell behind at times, but then I would take a day to catch up, and be right back on track.





And the week we didn't have internet when we were house hunting in Scotland?  I read ahead.

Hmm.  Being without internet is probably what made me successful in doing this.

Do you think that might be a message to me?  Hmm??

So glad for your success! It's awesome, isn't it? This was my second time through in the 90 Day program, and I have to say it was every bit as awesome finishing this week as the first time was. Thank you for sharing--I enjoyed reading your thoughts.
