A new blog

I have been struggling with managing my time. Lately I have been spending more time blogging about the kids rather than blogging my bible studies. But when I was doing both consistently it seemed that I would post 2 or 3 or more posts a day. It was too much to keep track of... Then I got the idea to have two blogs. One for bible study and growth, and one for stories and photos of the kids.

So this blog will be for Bible study. Other than the Genesis posts, I will not move previous bible study posts. I will be doing something slightly different with the study so I basically am going to start from scratch - or in other words start over and start with Genesis. So that will be my regular SOAP study - a chapter a day post. Of course that is the goal to do a chapter a day, will I meet that goal? Probably not, but it is still the goal. The routine is still up in the air because I am not even at home right now, but the time is right to do this change.

I will also continue with Memory Monday because I am determined to memorize scripture.

Then I also want to do other studies besides bible chapters. I have so many books that I want to get through. Books like The Power of a Praying Wife and Praying Parent, Purpose Driven Life, lots of Kay Arthur books, and tons of topical bible study books. They have all been sitting in boxes for months and months and were collecting dust on the bookshelves before that. In order to get to them I think I need to have a routine. So I would like to do regular posts on them too, and of course I have no idea how that will work into a routine either.

I have a plan to study, I just don't have a real good plan for how to manage my time yet! Tomorrow is the first day of August, and in my previous life as an accountant, the first of the month was always the best time to make changes and start things new! Tomorrow is a new day!
