Book Nerds Unite: Daily Bible Reading & Resources

After a lifetime of struggling to do so, a couple of years ago I (FINALLY) read the bible all the way through using this awesome Daily Bible that Kim gave me.
I have tried & tried to read the bible all the way through so many times in my life and always became overwhelmed & just gave up.

This year I am reading through it again using that same bible as one of my goals for 2019. Each day in this Daily Bible you are assigned a small portion of reading from the Old Testament, a portion from the New Testament, a Psalm and a Proverbs. It usually takes me 15-20 minutes at the most to do my daily reading.
In the last couple of weeks of reading the Old Testament portion, I fully understand WHY I always gave up in the past (because Leviticus, and Numbers, so many names, so many numbers, so many RULES). If I were not also reading portions of Matthew and Mark along side all of that, I would FOR SURE think that I would never be perfect enough to shimmy through the pearly gates!
Last night while I was reading I remembered that I ALSO read Francine Rivers' Sons of Encouragement during this same time and it REALLY helped me feel a more personal connection to these Old Testament bible characters and their struggles as real people (Francine Rivers is truly an instrument of the Lord to draw his people closer to him, God bless her).

I just wanted to share these books with you guys in case anyone was interested. I am NO biblical scholar by any stretch of the imagination, but these were very helpful to me.
