This showed up on my porch today. ❤️
A gorgeous devotional sent as a gift from my mother-in-law.
😍 I love the cover, and the zipper is so neat! I‘ve never had a book that zips up before.
I had to laugh because the description on Amazon says the cover provides “exquisite tactile appeal”…sounds so like hyperbolic marketing, but it‘s TRUE! It does add exquisite tactile appeal! 😄
Well, we are officially out of Genesis and into Exodus! 🙌🏻Today‘s reading is Exodus 1-3. #BibleBuddyRead
It‘s Week 3 of the #BibleBuddyRead. Today‘s reading is Genesis 47-50. Looking forward to seeing your posts! Feel free to share your thoughts and takeaways below 👇🏻
Happy Sunday everyone!
Today is catch-up day for the #BibleBuddyRead 🙂
BTW, I‘ve been *trying* to tag everyone on each post, but Litsy is glitching big time, whether on the app, mobile browser, or desktop browser. So please don‘t wait to be tagged to interact…just tap the hashtag #BibleBuddyRead and see all the posts there, or scroll through my profile.
Two weeks ago I thought to myself, “Well, at least it‘s not a cold winter, at least we don‘t have to worry about the pipes bursting or anything like that.”
I spoke too soon. This is COLD. 🥶
You guys. 🤦🏻♀️ This past week has been ROUGH. Sorry I didn‘t yet post the #WeeklyWrapUp.
However, it has occurred to me that it makes more sense to post it on the weekend, after we‘ve done all the readings for the week, so that‘s what I‘ll do going forward.
Let‘s discuss below! 👇🏻
What are your thoughts & takeaways from this week‘s reading?
Remember to check the hashtag #BibleBuddyRead so you can see and interact with all the posts!
Wow, I‘m so under the weather I didn‘t even know what day it is…thought today‘s Sunday. 🤦🏻♀️
Today‘s reading for the #BibleBuddyRead is Genesis 42-46.
Looking forward to seeing your posts! ❤️

Hi all, today‘s reading for the #BibleBuddyRead is Genesis 34-36.
Tried posting this several times today but it refused to post, sorry to be late.
We‘re still very under the weather here, please forgive my not being as active as I‘d like to be. ❤️
Today‘s reading for the #BibleBuddyRead is Genesis 30-33. More drama! Wow. 😳
Hubs and I are sick, baby is fine praise God.
Love to hear your thoughts on today‘s reading! ❤️
Today‘s reading is Genesis 26-29. Let me warn you, it is INTENSE! Some major drama is going down! 😳😮👀
Please forgive me for being less active here today…feeling under the weather so my big plans for the day are sleeping and sleeping some more. 😬

Happy Monday everyone, hope you had a great weekend! ☺️ We‘re on Day 1 of Week 2 of the #BibleBuddyRead! 🙌🏻
It was so great seeing a bunch of your smiling faces on our first Zoom call! 🤗 Those who attended, thank you for coming, and those who couldn‘t make it, we missed you! Hopefully next time. ❤️
Well, a whole lot happens in today‘s reading…👀
So let‘s discuss below👇🏻in addition to your own posts!
#BibleBuddyRead friends: Would you be OK with resuming our reading on Monday, so that Sunday is always the 7th day and thus our “day off”?
I think that would feel better for me (as a lady of routines & rhythms), especially if we‘re having a Thursday weekly wrapup discussion. What do you think?
If so, we should use this weekend to explore additional resources & Scriptures and pick back up with Day 8 on Monday.
Hope to see you today in our Zoom!
When my bestie says I have to read a book, you know I‘m gonna read that book! Lol 😂
I‘m only just through the intro and already I am fully captivated and intrigued, and so glad my girl made me read this! 😃🙌🏻 Thanks sis! @CafeBookstelo

They‘re a tad behind us right now, but that‘s okay…it‘s full of enriching insights that I found to be a blessing! #BibleBuddyRead #Christian #podcast
OK fellow #BibleBuddyRead Littens, I promised some resources. I‘ve been finding some very cool resources for additional study and insight.
Here‘s one that I really like done by The Bible Project on YouTube. The art is amazing! 😍
P.S. — if you have awesome resources you want to share, post them with the above hashtags so we can all find them! 😊
Dear Litsy family, please welcome a new Litten, a dear IRL friend of mine, Jasmine! 😃💖 She is a ton of fun, an absolute delight, and I‘m so happy to have her here. Please make her feel welcome!🤗 #LitsyWelcomeWagon
📢🔵Thursdays I‘ll open the discussion here on Litsy for a #WeeklyWrapUp so everyone can chime in as desired & discuss the past week‘s reading.☺️
We‘ll have our first zoom THIS coming Saturday!😃
Thereafter it‘ll be the first Saturday of the month (unless it‘s a holiday weekend).
TIME: It‘s a near three-way-tie among votes for morning, afternoon, evening. So let‘s try 6pm Eastern Time and see how that works out.👍🏻
We‘re on Day 5: Genesis 16-18! Only one day left in this first week‘s reading! 😃🙌🏻
I‘m going to post some resources and a couple announcements today, so keep an eye out for those!
Love you all! You‘re adding a richness to this reading with your observations and thoughts which I really appreciate. 🤗

#BibleBuddyRead Day 4: today‘s reading is Genesis 13-15! I‘m loving the discussions we‘ve had so far. You‘ve offered really great insights!
Opening up the conversation. Feel free to share your thoughts below! ⬇️
This book is packed with beautiful portraits like this. CS Lewis, Johann Sebastian Bach, Elisabeth Elliot, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks, so many influential people in history. The page following contains their prayer quote, also beautifully presented.

🥩No eating meat with blood still in it!
🌈Now we know why there are rainbows😄
🍷Noah, a righteous man, messed up and got drunk, yet his son‘s sin was greater
🤔James4:17“to him who knows to do right and does it not, to him it is sin.”
😬Sounds like Pharaoh would‘ve had relations with Abraham‘s wife Sarah when he took her as his own wife…BUT in Gen20:6 we‘ll learn that God prevented it!😮
It‘s day 3 of the #BibleBuddyRead! Today‘s reading is Genesis 9-12. It was exciting seeing everyone‘s great posts yesterday! Keep ‘em coming! 😃🙌🏻 This is so much fun reading with you all! ❤️ 🤗
#BibleBuddyRead #Christian #BuddyRead
These chapters of Genesis are really interesting! People were living till almost 1000 years old, someone (Enoch) never died (but rather God “took him away”), God regretted making mankind (thanks a lot Adam & Eve 😒), and God numbered the lifespan of humans to 120 years.

Starting 2022 off right! 😃 First day of the #BibleBuddyRead 🙌🏻 Learning so much already. This time I‘m reading the CSB recommended by Phylicia Masonheimer, on the Bible app with narration for #immersionreading. ❤️
Aaaaaannnd we‘re off! Here‘s today‘s reading for the #BibleBuddyRead : Genesis 1-4! Happy reading everyone, can‘t wait to see your posts about it! ❤️

Happy Christmas Eve! 🤗
In Luke Chapter24, Jesus has been resurrected and rose from the grave. “He is not here; he has risen!” said the angel to the women looking for Jesus in His tomb. Hallelujah! 🙌🏻
This concludes the #AdventChallenge. If you were following along, you learned the story of Jesus‘s life just in time to celebrate His birthday!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas! 🎄 ❤️
Luke Chapter 23 is a tough one… it covers Jesus being unjustly accused, tortured, crucified, and killed. Luke left out all the graphic gory detail though, which I do appreciate at this time of year. I prefer to reflect on the heaviness of that on Easter weekend. Yet we have hope, for we know tomorrow is coming!
Day 23 Chapter 23 #AdventChallenge
And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it,and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.”
Thank you Jesus! ❤️
Day 22 Chapter 22 #AdventChallenge
The Widow‘s Offering
As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”
🎨: James C Christensen
“…At the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?”
Jesus replied, “The people of this age marry and are given in marriage. But those who are considered worthy of taking part in the age to come and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage, and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God‘s children, since they are children of the resurrection.”
Jesus at the Temple
When Jesus entered the temple courts, he began to drive out those who were selling. “It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be a house of prayer‘; but you have made it ‘a den of robbers.‘”
The Little Children and Jesus
People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
Luke 18:15-17 #AdventChallenge
