Challenges and Commitments

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.
