Fall Bible Reading Adventure #6

Only 3 more weeks!  Stay with it.  Please be sure to CHECK-IN!  (Check-in is also available on my blog in the upper right corner.) Also, tell us what verse you chose to memorize for the Review/Study days in the comment section!

Reading Plan for the week:
*Monday- 1 John 4:5-6
*Tuesday- 1 John 4:7-10
*Wednesday- 1 John 4:11-12
*Thursday- 1 John 4:13-16
*Friday- 1 John 4:17-21
*Saturday- 1 John 4:5-21
*Sunday- 1 John 4:5-21

*Review/Study-This week write down all the ways you feel loved by God.
*And with every week ask "What does God want me to know by reading these verses?  What does God want me to do by reading these verses?"
*Write a prayer to God.

**I am going to be honest with you!  I am only getting to read the daily verses Monday through Friday for the most part and even sometimes I miss some days.  But the most important thing is that I AM reading God's Word to my kids, so don't give up even if you miss a day and of course, the Review/Study days are optional.

As you are reading the daily verse(s), take time to answer questions your kids have or explain what the verse means.  Reading and understanding God's Word is key to knowing Him.

If you want more insight into these verses see Good Morning Girls. My schedule is slightly different from theirs.

Be sure to check back on Monday, November 19 for the next reading plan, activity and CHECK-IN!!

Here is the schedule:

We wills start October 1 and read until  November 30.  That's 2 months of reading the Bible EVERY DAY.

Here's what you need to do:
1. Fill out this form to join: Fall Bible Reading Adventure
2. Download and print the printable from Scripture Adventures so you can keep track of your reading. Click on Download Reading Charts. We will only be using October and November.
3. Get the reading plan for 1 John. Download as a PDF.  (You can also read your own verses.)

I am going to print the Scripture Adventures download off and then flip and print the I John Bible Reading Plan that I created.  Every day we will read the verses and then mark off a number on the calendar.

There are two Review/Study days built in. 

I will post the daily verses on my Facebook page from the New Living Translation (which is what I will be reading). 

Would you like to join me?  Fill out this form and every week I will have a check in. I will post a check-in on this blog, so either subscribe by email or I will have a check in button on the side bar.    I will give a prize to the family that completes the challenge by checking in weekly and answers an ending survey.  Sound good?

Prize will be A Christmas Adventure from Scripture Adventures.

You can join anytime!

Had a good week, we read 6 days out of 7. We chose to memorize 1 John 3:18...Dear Children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. To be honest memorization is not our strong point but we are trying!! I don't remember if I checked in last week, the more I think of it I don't remember doing it.

Well, we haven't been able to do much of the studying or extras, but we HAVE been keeping up with reading every day! So we are doing so much better than last time when we got off track =) I hope you will do more reading challenges in the future and we will be able to do better about getting into the studying part more! Thanks again for what you have been doing =)

April and Ali- I am so proud of you! I will be praying about more challenges in the future. I'm glad that reading is going well. I'm not able to do all of the extras either. Thanks for being part of the Fall Bible Reading Adventure!
