  1. Me too, this year I am starting slower, pausing more, and writing my thoughts when I feel the need. This way I am hoping that will help reinforce what I have learned.

  2. I’m about halfway through the “I Will Meditate” journals. They have been SO REFRESHING! I had read through the entire Bible many times in my life, but this way is by far the best learning time for me. Slow IS better!! I recommend these journals to all my friends.

    1. halfway through the set?!?! You’ve done more than I have! Oh how I’d love to sit down and flip through the ones you’ve completed! What a wonderful conversation that would be!

  3. One of my intentions this year was to start my mornings with a chapter a day and journaling. I started right around Christmas and I have already started slacking on the journaling part of it, and for the past couple of days, it’s been devotionals instead of chapters. (How quickly I fell off). I realize that if I don’t journal, I don’t think about what I’ve read and therefore it doesn’t stay with me. I said out loud to the Lord yesterday, “This isn’t working. I need to find something so it stays with me…so I can meditate on the Word during the day.” Today, I got your email about your book Meditate. One chapter a day, with questions to help me think about what I’m reading. No leading or personal thoughts like devotionals. I asked the Lord which one to start. Bought it today! I am excited to start! Thank you!

  4. I read a book last year called “The Normal Christian Life” by Watchman Nee. Right before I read it, I was about a third of the way through reading Romans really slowly + journaling. I checked and was SO SO excited to see you did have a I Will Meditate for Romans…then life happened and here we are. I want to pick back up in my study of Romans and I also would like to read through the Bible as a whole again. So far though, the first week of January has found us in bed with colds. So we are off to a super slow start. I love when you share what your plans are and how they are going, it is SUCH an encouragement. Sunshine

  5. I may have to consider this for next year. I’ve done chronological for six years and now I need to do cover to cover. Chronological is an amazing method, but the Bible has become fragmented to me in terms of whole books and the order of books. I need to set my mind straight. I also do BSF, so at least I get some deep study too. Happy New Year!

  6. I really like this idea of slowing down and taking our time in the Word. It also means we have more time to listen, which I am not very good at. I would love it if you would share some of your well worn journals! I think we all have so much to glean from one another. Thank you for sharing!
