“Come to the class, even if you’re behind! Don’t be discouraged if you fall behind because any reading of the Bible is more knowledge for you.”
“Stick with it! The beginning is really hard. Allocate 60-90 minutes a day but don’t stress if you fall behind. Use the audio for times you can’t read . . . it is definitely worth the journey. It was also great to do as a family and with friends. This created a whole new area for sharing. It brought the Scripture alive even more having family to wrestle the Text with. I enjoyed every part!”
“Don’t give up if you fall behind, but also make the commitment of time everyday, even (especially?) if you have to give up something to make that time.”
“Take the time to meditate first before reading the Word, partner with your assigned “talmidim” (disciples) and read the handouts sent by Pastor Danielle.”
“Take Facebook off your iPhone!”
“Promise yourself that you won’t watch the t.v. program you’re looking forward to until you’re done with the day’s reading.”
“Don’t let yourself get behind. Set rules at the beginning. Come up with creative strategies before it gets tougher. Pray!”
“Read the Text and ask questions!”
“Keep your Sabbath holy!”
“Mix your reading with audio! Even at the gym I could read and listen. (It helps so much with many of the difficult pronunciations).”
“Take a deep breath. Pastor D. is amazing and will encourage you to keep on!”
“It’s going to be a struggle keeping up but don’t give up! Get your hands on an audio Bible if you can. Hang in there because every bit you read counts and helps tons.”
“Listen to the Bible while reading. It helps keep pace and active listening is another rich way of interacting with the Text.”
“Engage with other [participants]. It helps immensely!”
“Keep reading and try out different translations if that helps.”
“Pray and ask God for discipline and accountability if you’re falling behind. Really relax and enjoy your Sabbath day so you can start anew again.”
“Find a partner and don’t try to delve deep or over spiritualize the reading time but practically make time to read each day.”
