Develop the habit of daily time with God – we call it PBJ time. Prayer, Bible reading, and journaling.
- ask God for one thing
- write that one thing in your journal
- pray it back to Him
- apply it that day
If you’re looking for a place to start, download one of the reading plans below. The 15 minute plan covers the old testament once and the new testament twice in a year’s time. The 5 minute plan follows the 15 minute plan with a third of each day’s reading.

ABOUT BIBLE VERSIONS
New International Version (NIV). This excellent translation is still the most widely used.
English Standard Version (ESV). The ESV is more of a word-for-word literal translation.
New Living Translation (NLT). The NLT is more of a thought-for-thought translation.
New English Translation (NET). The NET includes translators’ notes that reveal some of the thinking behind the translation process.
The Message. This is not a translation as much as a paraphrase into colloquial English. Also, it is written by one person rather than a team of translators; the other translations are done by teams.
