The Bible in 90 Days Challenge - Final Check-In

Bible in 90 Days Challenge, post regarding days 85-90.  Here's last week's check in. 

Monday: finished Acts and listened to Romans.  I know I have never been through Acts this quickly, and even if I never do another 90-Day Challenge, I am going to make sure I do something like this with Acts periodically.

Tuesday: 1 Corinthians and 2 Corinthians 1-5.  An hour and half at a time is too much for my kids.  I am going to have to rethink these last couple of days.  Maybe we can do 45-60 minutes in the morning and another 45 minutes or so in the afternoon.

Wednesday:  Finished 2 Corinthians.  Paul is tough to listen to sometimes.  All his talk about not boasting, yet boasting about his infirmities.  I think some of that is easier to read than to listen to.  My head was spinning.  Listened to Galatians, Ephesians, and Philippians.  

Thursday:  Listened to Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus and Philemon.  Yikes.  It is interesting to hear a bunch of these letters more or less back to back (we did this over three separate sessions today) and to hear the names.  The kids picked up on the fact that at the end of Titus (I think?) Paul asked for Mark... "I thought Paul didn't like Mark.  Didn't they fight about him?" was the comment thrown my way. 

Friday:  Listened to Hebrews, James, and 1 and 2 Peter.  Was hoping to listen to more, but the day kind of got away from us, with an Eagle project and such.

Saturday:  Listened to John 1, 2, and 3 and Jude.  Started to listen to Revelation but the iPod is completely out of battery power.  So that is charging and we'll have to listen later.

Later on Saturday: We all listened to Revelation.  I'm nearly certain I've never read through the entire book in one day.  Wow...

And we are done.  We did it.  We listened to the entire Bible in 90 days.  Well, Connor, William & I did.  Thomas heard most of it.  Richard and Trina heard a lot.

So -- anyone have recommendations for the kids to study the book of Daniel?

How wonderful to have done this challenge with your children. I felt wonderful once I finished, but I can't imagine how you felt knowing your children were finishing with you! Looking forward to the time I get to do this with mine as well!
Congratulations!

How about the precepts for kids studies?

Amy -- it IS incredibly cool to be able to say I did this with my kids!

Lori -- THANK YOU. That is the study I was remembering, vaguely, and is probably perfect for us right now. I'm going to run by Mardel tomorrow. I should have remembered it was Kay Arthur anyway. Duh.

yay! Just visiting my fellow readers to say Congratulations! I am excited right alongside you!

I think Kay Arthur may have a study for kids on Daniel. Her ministry is Precepts!
