Hi Tania,

This is a great aim! A few things might help:

i. Little and often might be a helpful principle. It is probably easier to try and read a bit every day rather than a ‘mega’ session once a week. And within a day, it might be easier to read in mini-blocks.

ii. Be careful of getting into a ‘guilt trip mentality’. It might help to think of the Bible as food. You don’t feel guilty when you miss a meal - you feel hungry!

iii. Don’t let the year deadline be a rod for your back. If it takes you 18 months that’s fine!

iv. Keep praying and ask God to help you read his word in the right way.
