Have you ever read through the whole Bible? I have done it a few times and loved it. There was one year that I read through the Bible in 90 days with a small group of friends. That was an experience, to say the least! I know there are different schools of thought when it comes to reading the Bible. I have read my Bible in various ways, and have learned much through each way. I do not think there is a wrong way to read your Bible. Just get in the Word! God will use the time you are in your Bible as He wants to use it.

I think reading your Bible can be an act of discipline. We don’t always want to read our Bibles, and I understand that. But the more we make it a habit, the easier and more natural it will become. Sometimes, pieces of our faith are built on a foundation of disciplined habits.
With that said, over the last year, I have struggled a bit with consistency in my Bible reading. We all know how the year 2020 went, so some of it was that. However, I had an extremely high risk pregnancy from vasa previa with my 8th baby during most of 2020. This led to some depression and anxiety and more. Before I was fully healed from that, my sweet 9 year old daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. See our story here. Although my relationship with God grew in ways I could never have expected or prepared myself for, my spiritual disciplines were lacking.
Because I know I need to work on making my Bible reading a habit this year, I decided to read through the Bible in 90 days again. However, I wanted to read through my Bible in chronological order – something I have never done. I created a printable to help me keep track of my readings – if you know me, you know I love a good tracker where I can check off boxes!
I shared my plan on Instagram, and many of you asked where you could get the printable plan. So, I decided to share it with you all and open it up to the community!
I will be sharing our daily readings on Instagram Stories and likely doing a weekly summary post there. Please make sure to connect with me over there and let me know you are joining us!
I left the printable undated, as dates can quickly make me feel like I am always falling behind. So, join us anytime! You can start from Day 1 or pick up where we are as a community!
If you find this plan after January, that doesn’t matter! Again, the plan is undated, so it doesn’t matter what time of year you start. Many of us will be revisiting the plan in The Simple Home Community, so join us there!

You could even grab some friends and form a small group and read through the plan together! Summer is a great time to get a group of ladies together and read through the whole Bible!
The only thing that matters is getting in the Word and making it a habit you crave!
I fold my printable in thirds so I can use it as a bookmark in my Bible.
I will be using The Jesus Bible to read through this plan. I know many of you ask about my Bibles on Instagram. I easily use my HCSB Notetaking Bible most often, but that Bible is filled with my notes. You can see plenty of pictures on Instagram. When I read through this Bible, I inevitably read through my notes as well. I love doing this, but it takes me on rabbit trails, because my notes are dated and so personal. When I am trying to read through the Bible in a short amount of time, I don’t want to be distracted with so many notes. So, I am using The Jesus Bible for this. It does have notes throughout the Bible, but they aren’t all mine, so I know I won’t feel the need to read each and every one. I love this Bible and don’t read it nearly enough! This is just my personal preference though – you know what will work best for you! I have a highlight dedicated to Bible Flip-throughs on Instagram if you want a peek inside a few.
