Weekend-Break Time!

I like to break from my regular study on the weekends. Take a break however you like, or here are some suggestions:
  • Saturday- Psalms 1 or Proverbs 1:1-19
  • Sunday- Psalms 2 or Proverbs 1:20-33

Do you find it hard to study the Bible?

It doesn’t have to be.

Let me help you learn a technique for studying that makes it simple. Join me as we study one chapter each week and memorize two verses of scripture each month.

You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes in your life.
