Some of you may remember reading my check-ins this past summer/fall as the boys and I read (okay, listened) to the Bible over the course of 90 days. This experience was pretty amazing. I've read through the Bible before. My kids have listened to the entire Bible a couple times before. But wow, going through it at this pace really gave the stories new meaning.
Well, Amy of Mom's Toolbox is starting up again. January 3 is the big day, and the 90 days goes through April 2. Signup just started, at this link.
I've been praying about my involvement this time around. And I just finished filling out the form to be a mentor. I have decided that I am not going to read through the Bible in 90 days again myself... but I am going to have Connor following the teen schedule I saw here, and I am going to have William and Thomas reading to me from the various kids' schedules.
The teen schedule has them reading 2-3 chapters a day.
The tween schedule has them reading 1-2 chapters a day. I'm thinking William can do that.
The kid schedule has them doing a chapter a day. I think Thomas can do that.
The little kids schedule does a story a day out of a kids' Bible I don't believe I own. I'll substitute. I'm actually thinking I may grab my Sonlight Basic K Teacher's Manual and plan to read from Egermeier's doing two days of SL per day for the 90 days. We'll see. :)
So instead of me reading something like 15-16 chapters of the Bible daily, I'll be listening to 2-3 chapters, and reading a few pages to the little ones.
And encouraging others to be plugging along and doing their reading. This mentor thing could be pretty neat. I'm already praying for whoever gets stuck with me. And I will be blogging about it. Because I'm sure I'm going to get a different perspective going through the Bible this way.
Anyone care to join me? You can even ask for me as a mentor, though I'm not sure why you'd want to...
