I have various one year plans but have never used any of them consistently. To be honest, I’m not that fussed whether I make it through in one year or ten I just want to read the whole Bible because I never have. 8 months ago

How I did it: At first I started with a very good friend of mine. We agreed to start in Genesis and read 5 chapters each day until we made it all the way through. We alternated taking turns reminding each other of what the daily reading was, to make sure that we were both on the same page. When one of us was going to have an extra busy schedule we would change the amount to less, or sometimes we would amp up the reading to even more if we both were ready for it.
About a month or a little more before the completion of this goal, I was not able to read along with my friend anymore and so continued on alone. I started reading many more chapters a day and couldn't get enough, it was like I was thirsty for the word... To make sure that I continued to read and not slack off, I would write it on my list of things to do and make sure that it got checked off each day. The great thing was that I had already had so many months previously that set me in the habit of reading each day so it was not as hard to go it alone :). Read how I did it… 5 years ago
How I did it: I was going through "BSF" bible study fellowship and had to stop due to
many problems. Now I know it was the enemy keeping me from it.
had heard different methods of reading the pros and cons of all. Some
people even said you have to know what you are doing because you will
not understand it.
I took it to God, told him I wanted to
understand and said, alright God its you and I< nothing is
impossible. So i started from Genesis to the end just read it like a
It took me two years and I was so happy. I was filled and satisfied! Read how I did it… 21 months ago
I am almost half way through a 32 weeks Bible study course conducted at the church. 2 years ago
How I did it: I found a "Read Through The Bible" schedule on the internet that had the Bible broken up into 3 sections. You read a little in each section a day. The sections are the first half of the Old Testament, the 2nd half, and the New Testament.
I read the 1st half of the OT. My daughter read the 2nd half of the OT. My son read the NT. My daughter started this at 10 yrs old and had a birthday over the summer. My son started at 7 yrs old and had a birthday over the summer.
We printed out the schedule and every part we read for one day, we'd color a color. The next day we'd use a different contrasting color. Our schedule was printed on 1/2 sheets and was comprised of 9 sheets.
It's very colorful - the schedule and that helped us gauge how much we had read or needed to read. The reading schedule was broken down into months. And, I would put down throughout the schedule what % we were at.
That helped us because we are math people.
And, I would log here in 43T what day we were on, so we can tell what days we didn't read the Bible or what days we did. It really shows more our Bible habits and sometimes it was overload and other times, it was sparse. Read how I did it… 2 years ago
This is the first time my kids and I have ever read the whole Bible out loud together and it was awesome. We got a slow start and had some stalling times, but what helped was the more we read, we got to learn more about God and who He is, His love for mankind.
It made me think that my life isn’t that bad compared to what some people in the Bible had to go through.
Praise God!!! My kids and I have gained a lot spiritually since we started this in early March. It took us a little over 6 months to do this, but read for 128 days, which means there were days we didn’t read the Bible at all. Ackk!
There is much room for improvement, but what a blessing this has been for us.
I would encourage others to do this. Be opened minded. If you follow a schedule, doing a little each day for 365 days, you are spending about 15-25 min. a day reading. If you can’t do it all at once, break it up into some in the evening and in the morning. 2 years ago
My Son: Leviticus 3
My Daughter: Leviticus 4
Me: Leviticus 5-6
This took about 25 min. We have now completed 100% reading of the whole Bible!!! Praise God!
I pray that throughout the lives of my children and I, that each year we would at least every year read the Bible through at least once, in addition to the other studies we would do.
God is so good. This last stretch really dragged out.

LOVE, LOVE, reading the Word of God first thing in the morning. It starts our day off well, which the days we don’t do it, not sure why, but just plain laziness and the Bible has nothing good to say about laziness or just wrong priorities & poor planning.
We’re not quite at 95% through the Bible, but soon. 2 years ago
