A Big Announcement!

Nope, I'm not pregnant. At least, not by the gracious graciousness of God's grace I'm not pregnant.

Instead, I'm taking up a challenge to read the Bible in 90 days! By March, I'll have a deeper understanding and appreciation for God's word, rather than 20 extra pounds, mad heartburn, swollen ankles, and an aching back.

Although I could totally have those, too. But not because I'm growing a fourth person inside of me.

Let's be clear: There will be NO fourth person.

I'd like to have a place to journal some thoughts I just might have about my reading experience, so rather than use this space, I'm also learning about Wordpress through the new blog I've created over there. Because I can never give myself too many random things to do.

If I stopped imposing haphazard ambitions upon myself, I might actually have to clean house. Or cook. And we all know you do NOT want me cooking.

It's haphazard ambitions for the win!

So while I definitely have plans to continue this blog documenting the fascinating comings and goings of a working mom, a pastoring/student husband and 3 precious little darlings, I'm also going to be over here pretty frequently as I read. And read. And read.

Come join me!


  1. Uh, well, I obviously can't cuss on your other blog on account of it's the one for Bible Reading Notes so I'm leaving my comment here.

    How the hell many pages do you have to read a day?!

  2. Oh, LynnAnn!! You crack me up! Amanda, have you given much thought to just reading one Psalms a day? Best of luck to you!!

  3. Oh, heavens! I just knew it would be a fourth person. But this is a noble and ambitious undertaking as well. I've seen the 90 Day plan & seriously considered it, but our pastor is encouraging the whole church to read through chronologically. So we'll see how that goes. Good luck!

  4. I may have to look into this. I had been seriously considering finding a plan to read through the Bible in a year. 90 days definitely sounds more challenging. We should talk about this... maybe we can encourage one another!

  5. When you finish, this book - The Year of Living Biblically by AJ Jacobs - could be a good bookend to the project. I really liked it, and it made me laugh a lot.

  6. WOW what an undertaking! I'll pop over there and see how you're coming along!


Comments help prove my worth. Leave me some love, because I'm worth it!
