 You CAN Read the Bible in a Year
 When Diane Stortz was invited to join a study to read the whole Bible in a year, she went for it. It changed her life, even though she'd been a Christian a long time. Now, more than ten years later, she still reads through the Bible every year with a group of friends.

"I didn't start to really know God until I made knowing him my goal as I read the Bible. Getting to know God changed me. It changed how I think and what I do. It changes me still."

God put the Bible together for you. Reading it through in a year helps create a rich experience and a focused understanding of what God wants to reveal about himself. And with week-by-week reading plans, easy-to-use reference material, and stories of encouragement from women like you, A Woman's Guide to Reading the Bible in a Year is the perfect companion for this life-changing practice.

Gather your Bible and some good friends to join you in your journey, or go for it on your own. Either way, God will change you.

My Reflections:
Delve into a wonderful routine of immersing your soul in God’s word, using this fantastic little guide.
Upon viewing this book what caught my attention instantly was the front cover, it is soothing with my favorite beverage hot tea; this simply beckoned me to review it.
Diane Storts has designed a very functional, yet personal guide to reading the bible in a year. She is insightful, honest and relevant throughout this study. I found the plan to be presented in a clear and uncluttered format.
This study goes week by week, and includes a summary of your Bible verse references and checkpoints. I especially enjoyed the Share the Journey exercises. These can be done as a group in your Bible study sessions or alone with God as your personal Journaling.
A few other points that make this study special is that they are is so easy to follow and read, you can check off your reading plan checklist as you go week by week and in the back of the book, if you choose.
Reading God’s word daily with a systematic approach helps us to not only know how God wants us to live, but also speaks directly to us, in a way like no other can. This little gem of a book is a great tool to keep you on track and organized!
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review from Bethany House Publishers. Thank you Bethany House!
