About This Plan

This plan is not designed to be read alone, but studied and discussed with other believers.

If you fall behind, don't worry about it. Catch up as much as possible, or just start fresh on a new day. It's more important to enjoy reading than to check off a to-do list. The plan is scheduled Monday through Friday to give two days of extra reading or to catch up on missed days. There are also additional reading and study options for the weekend.

This yearly plan will take you through the New Testament twice a year, and the Old Testament once a year. It's also divided into sections for those with different reading goals. Families might read Jesus Said and the Gospel sections together. If you are just getting started and seem overwhelmed, try as much as you can, but it's okay to only read one or two sections to start with.
