A Widow's Daily Bible Reading Guide

A One-Year Bible Reading Plan for Widows 2020

Dear Friends,

I can't say "Happy New Year," not when hearts are far from happy and a calendar of sorrow looms ahead.  But I do have a gift for you...

Start this new year by using a Bible reading plan. It helps us know what to do next---and in the fog of grief that's exactly what we need!. 

I first posted this plan about 2 years ago, after about 2 years of trial and error to develop it. Although other other plans will get you through the Bible in a year or two, most widows are too distracted to read 3 or 4 chapters of the Bible each day--it's too much to take in. 

So that's where my plan comes in: 
  • You'll read the entire New Testament, many Psalms, all of Proverbs, and all of Ruth  
  • You'll read the 4 gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) one per season--winter, spring, summer, fall. 
  • You can start reading, or get back on track reading at any time without feeling like you have to "catch up" because books do not overlap into the next month. 
  • Most months start out with a section of Psalm 119 to remind us of all the excellent things God's Word does for us!  
TO PRINT: Click the small images of the plan in the column at the right. (If you are viewing this blog post on a cell phone or email, you might need to click on the title at the top this page to get to the actual website). If you need me to mail you a printed copy please send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to me at Ferree Hardy, 122 Breckenridge Place, North Augusta, SC 29841. I'll be happy to mail you one at no charge. You may reprint as many copies as you need. 

Reading the Bible anchors our day with encouragement, wisdom, hope and comfort. It gives us perspective and perseverance because it enables us to see the big picture of God's love and faithfulness. I hope you will get into God's Word this year and that this Bible-reading plan will be a helpful and tremendous blessing as you start into 2020!
