Bible reading

Captain's Log, Stardate 11.04.2008

I finished Revelations yesterday, which marks the third time I’ve read through my entire Bible! Yay!

I am a bit ashamed to admit I’ve been a Christian since my teens, but I have only read through the entire Bible three times. That’s why I’m challenging the teens in my church to read their entire Bible by June 1st. (Want to join us?)

I really like the Bible in 90 Days because it gives me a page goal and a sense of accomplishment at the same time. And the Spirit often convicts me on at least one thing during my reading since I’m covering so many pages in a sitting.

I think I will use my NLT Bible for this next round (I just finished the last round with my TNIV Bible).

At some point I think I would also like to do a Bible study in Isaiah, because I really don’t understand that book very well. I might do a blog Bible study for that if some other people want to join me. I already have a book, Isaiah in the Lifechange series by NavPress. Is anyone interested?


  1. wow. the Bible in 90 days. That's quite a feat. I'm doing the Chronological Bilbe in a year. We're nearing the end as we approach year's end. It's been amazing. I'm a Christian since high school, but have always been "choppy" in my Bible I'm excited to be making my way through it now.

    Congrats on your reading, praise God.

    have a great day.

  2. Thanks, Lynn! It's actually not that amazing because I'm reading the Bible a bit faster than I would if I were only reading a passage or two. There's less time for reflection, but I find the Spirit speaks to me even though the pace is faster.

  3. Wow! That's wonderful.
    I've been a Christian since I was 9 years old and I've never read the entire bible. I know - that's sad.

  4. Awesome! Since I got audio bibles, I've been much better about reading. (I'm very auditory.)

    And I've never heard of this Bible in 90 Days thing. That sounds GREAT!

  5. Debbie, join me on reading the Bible by June 1st!

    Marcus, I love my audio Bibles! I have the Bible Experience--that's my favorite.


  6. Congrats on finishing it!
    And best wishes as you start again!

    I've been a Christian since childhood and have read the Bible through a handful of times, but I'm not sure how many.

    I've recently started again, and I'm in Deuteronomy now. I don't have any specific plan or set goal to finish by- with three kids five and under, I just go as far as I can before chaos ensues.

    I am using a new study Bible, though, which I hadn't done before, so I'm getting lots of pearls from the historical notes and things like that.

  7. I would do the Isaiah study online with you. I have the exact study already. ;) My oh my I am on Oct4 in a 365 day Bible. I cannot imagine reading the Bible in 90 days!

  8. Hi Camy! I would love to delve deeper into Isaiah, seems interesting. I'll join you, of course :)

    I also need to find a reading schedule and stick to it. I am still in Revelations(have been for three weeks)

    Peace and Blessings,


  9. I usually read from Genesis to Revelations, then repeat the New Testament before heading back to the start. I haven't counted how many times I've done this, but it's been years and years of nightly reading. It's like flossing: I can't sleep if I haven't done it!

    I'm also listening to The Message in the car and love that translation.

  10. I'm actually planning on starting this in January (great way to start the New Year with) and have heard a lot of great things about reading through the bible this way.

  11. I actually did it again this year, although I took a bit longer. I'm in Galatians right now. I really love this!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

I joined Sweet Romance Reads!

I just joined Sweet Romance Reads, a group of authors who all write sweet romances in a variety of sub-genres. I’m friends with several of the authors from my days writing for Harlequin/Love Inspired, so it’s nice to be able to join their group. If you’re on Facebook, this is their Facebook page , and this is their Facebook group . I posted my introductory post yesterday on the Sweet Romance Reads blog (Blogger), where I listed three strange things about me.

Year of the Dog serial novel

About Year of the Dog : A month or two ago, I remembered an old manuscript I had completed but which hadn’t sold. It was a contemporary romance meant for Zondervan, titled Year of the Dog . The book had gone into the pipeline and I even got another title ( Bad Dog ) and a cover for it, but eventually my editor at the time decided she didn’t want to publish it, for various reasons. She instead requested a romantic suspense, and so I cannibalized some of the characters from Year of the Dog and thrust them into the next book I wrote, which was Protection for Hire . Honestly, I didn’t take a lot from Year of the Dog to put in Protection for Hire , aside from character names and a few relationship ties. I was originally thinking I’d post Year of the Dog as-is on my blog as a free read, but then it occurred to me that I could revamp it into a romantic suspense and change the setting to Hawaii. It would work out perfectly as (yet another) prequel to the Warubozu series and introduce
