How I Plan to Stay Accountable to Bible Study in 2015

How I Plan to Stay Accountable to Bible Study in 2015


I’ve never been much of a journaler. But I like the accountability of writing something down each day as a part of my Bible study.  I like referencing a verse, leaving a note or a prayer.  But there was always something intimidating about a huge blank journal page.


So I bought a planner.  And I’m filling in each day with Bible study notes instead of plans.  And I’m loving it.  It’s just enough room to leave a Bible verse reference and a few thoughts.

As far as the actual plan, at the moment, I’m using the She Reads Truth app. I like it, but I might want to do more of a topical study on prayer later.  I’m open to suggestions if you know of any great prayer studies.  It’s an area of my spiritual life where I could use some growth.


So there you have it.  My planner is going to be my Bible study journal this year.


  1. Great idea! I may have to steal it. I’m using the she reads truth app too. I just love it. 🙂

    • I love that app too! What study are you doing? I’m doing the Open Your Bible one now, and I’m doing Hospitality next. Grab a planner and get to jotting down! 🙂

  2. That’s such a smart idea!!! The lines in a planner seem so much less intimidating!

    • Right?! MUCH better than a big blank journal page. It’s funny, I’m a writer by trade, but something about handwriting a whole page of notes seemed daunting.

    Are you still using this method? I have been scouring the web on this subject as I have been wanting to do this for a long time. Thank you for this information and id love if you could give us an update as well as some more details- what are u writing each day? What kind of planner are you using? Maybe post some pics? I am so grateful I found your post! Thank you a million!

    • Hi Casey- I don’t use that this year. I just fell out of the habit this year. I wrote anything from the verses I’ve read, the application I drew from it, a quick prayer or praise….It was just a basic planner from Target- nothing fancy. Good luck!
