With the new year started I am going to participate in some challenges and make some commitments.
The first being to read the Bible in 90 Days with all the ladies at Mom's Toolbox. This is a difficult challenge that I have not completed in the past, I got quite a ways into it and let life overwhelm me. I would like to finish strong this time. I hate to think that I am approaching 30, have been a Christian for quite some time, but have not completed a cover to cover reading of the Bible.
The second being memorizing two new verses a month with the Siesta Scripture Memory Team. I enjoy memorizing scripture, but usually do it as a passive process of learning with my AWANA girls. Hearing them quote verses week after week I absorb from hearing them. I want to make a more active commitment.
I am also thinking that just for fun I will join the Jane Austen 2011 Challenge just for fun. I have never read a Jane Austen novel, just seen some wonderful movies, so reading a few this year would be great. I do not know which ones yet.
