Daily Reading

Look what I got in the mail today. I ordered one copy of this Daily Bible: Read the Entire Bible in a Year last month which Russ and I have been reading to see how we like it. I don’t know about you, but I need a lot of structure in my life, and having readings that correspond to the date helps me be consistent. I emailed all of my big kids and told them that if they would commit to reading this Daily Bible, I would buy one for each of them. I am happy to say that everyone took me up on it, except Noah who is already reading the Bible in a year using a plan he found online.

I ordered a daily Bible for children as well, and if I like it, I’ll share it here.

Our school books are also rolling in and I’m getting a little excited about the upcoming school year. I am using many of my “tried and true” materials, but I’ve added a couple new things that should be fun.

Dimples and I are heading to Seattle tomorrow, and then we have two weeks off! Although I am thrilled with our progress, I am looking forward to having two whole weekends at home.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    What a great idea to do it with the family. I love reading the bible in a year and its good too because for those who need to get started or don't have much time it can be done in about 20-30 minutes.

    I bought a similar Bible this year with birthday money, except it's the New Living Transaltion, which I really like for a new perspective, and it has commentary by Walk Thru the Bible…..

    I'm interested to hear your homeschool plan for the year too!
