The Farm Wife

The Farm Wife

The new year is here, and with it comes the hopes and prayers that this one is better than the last ones. Still, one of our goals for the year is to be able to quickly adjust to whatever the future may have in store for us. Many of us have had to adapt to things we never thought would happen.

By living a simple lifestyle, you may be able to take those adaptations and adjustments in stride, with very few, if any wrinkles to iron out.

What exactly is a Simple Life? To me it means choosing your priorities, slowing down, focusing more on faith, family, and home, and less on societal demands, dependence on outside sources for food, entertainment, supplies and other material, emotional, and spiritual needs.

7 Bible Reading Tips for 2022 - Part 1 of 2

7 Bible Reading Tips for 2022 - Part 1 of 2

The purpose of this article is to provide advice that can enhance your reading of Scripture in 2022. Oh what a treasure chest of spiritual riches God has placed at our fingertips! Now more than ever, may the Word be sweeter than honey and more precious than gold.

Here are seven tips to help you read the Bible this year.

TIP #1: Read the Bible Like Any Other Book

My first suggestion is to embrace what I call “A Better Way to Read the Bible.” Simply put, a better way to read the Bible is to read it like any other book, which means we read the whole thing. Think about the last time you read a book that you truly enjoyed and from which you benefitted greatly. Did you read it all, or just a portion? Did you read only a few sections, or did you start at the beginning and go all the way to the end. I’m stating the obvious, but to truly understand a book, isn’t it best to read it in its entirety?

TIP #2: Read the Bible Like No Other Book
