How to choose a reading plan

The plans on this website are structured with five reading days per week to give grace and flexibility. New plans are published on a regular basis. If you're not sure where to start, here are some recommendations:


Explore Paul's letter to the Galatians as he explains what it means to walk by faith and trust completely in Jesus' salvation.


Walk through the gospel of Mark and follow Jesus' story. If you're interested in learning more about who Jesus, this is a good plan to start with.


Dive into God's wisdom. Getting to know God's truth is a starting point in knowing him better and practically walking with him.
