The Bible in 90 Days: Why I deciced to participate

Today's post is brought to you by a guest blogger, The Grinch himself.  Everyone please welcome Rehm to Mayhem Mania.

Well about 3 weeks ago I found out my church was going to read the Bible in 90 days. Having never read the whole thing I thought this was a wonderful chance to do so.  I am excited because I would get to do something I've never done.  I liked that lots of other people would be doing it.  Then I would have lots of people to discuss it with.

I was also a bit scared because there was a lot of reading.  I was afraid I might not have enough time to do it all sometimes.  I have lots of other activities planned for the summer.

The majority of the first 11 days have been good.  The good parts were when there was lots of action happening, like creation, the Ark...There were a couple of days that have been hard.  When it starts talking about the building of the Tabernacle, the alter for the Tabernacle, and all of the sacrifices it is really hard to continue on because it makes you tired and sleepy. 

I hope that I get though the whole thing. This is an amazing program.  I like how it is a short time period so I don't have to remember to do it everyday for a whole year.  It is quicker so I can make connections between the Old and New Testaments and different books.

Wish me luck,

Rehm decided completely on his own to do this. I did not even mention it to him. He overheard Michael and I talking about doing it and immediately interrupted us to ask if he could do it too. So far he is very self motivated in doing his daily reading.

Rehm, I am so proud of you! Can't wait to see you.

You know, I think it would be a good idea for you to have your own blog so I could keep up with all the things that you are doing.

Love you.

Rehm, it's great that you're doing this! There are definitely parts of the Old Testament that are incredibly boring...but you will learn so much and it will be such a great experience for you.
