Here we are, a little over a month into 2019, with a new challenge for the year. Reading through the Bible is quite a task! I’ve gotten several messages from people who share how hard it is to get into reading the Bible daily and they have “gotten behind”. I got another message saying that “Faithful Promises of God” has encouraged them to dust their Bible off and start reading.


I want you to know that “Faithful Promises of God” was truly written with His guidance. When it was all finished, there was only 321days…yes, 321 days! I really prayed about that number but felt that God wanted to take the pressure off each of us as we read His Word. Yes, it is nice to read through the Bible in a year but I used to “get behind” all the time…that is very defeating. This book is designed so you can take a day off most weeks and still get through the Bible in a year. Or, you can take your time and do your Bible readings in two days and perhaps take two years to read through the Bible. Even if it takes you five years, you are successful in getting the Word into your heart each day you read. It is not about the amount of time it takes you, it is about reading the Bible and letting God speak to you.

I would love to hear from you. Have any of you tried to send an email? I also have A Fae Original facebook page but it is a closed group, so my manager will have to approve you before you can join in. I want to hear from you…to share your successes and to encourage you in those hard to read times.


And speaking of hard to read times…Numbers! I love Leviticus and all the laws but Numbers is quite another story. It is hard to get through so much repetitive wording…my secret is to read the first set and then skim through the others for they say the same thing only using a different name. Please share how you get through those difficult passages that don’t really speak to you. And that is okay! Not every passage of Scripture will “speak” to you…I have read passages over and over and only on my 20 time (a made up number) does it finally touch my heart.


Thanks for taking the time to visit my page! We are here to encourage one another. I look forward to hearing from you…

How many of you started reading through the Bible using “Faithful Promises of God” on January 1st? Genesis is an exciting book and full of so much history and really sets the foundation for the rest of the Bible. You will be amazed as you realize further on in the year, that what is being said, the consequences of the fall and further sin still continues…even to this day.

I love Genesis because I love history but more than that, I love God’s Word! I would like to see those of you who come on this site to “follow” so that when I post something, you will be notified. Also, please feel free to send me an email if you have a question and don’t want to share with the whole group (manager@afaeoriginal.com) . Also, I have a new face book page, it is a closed group so my manager will approve you (A Fae Original). None the less, I want to hear from each of you as you read the Bible!

For many of us, we will start reading the Bible on this first day of the year. But this journey started many years ago for me. Some 55 years ago, I wanted to be a published writer and hopefully people would buy what I’d written. I did not know the Lord back then but, He knew me. He let me go my own way for a while because He does not force Himself upon anyone.


Almost 13 years later, I came to know Jesus in a personal way. He became Lord of my life, my Master and certainly my Savior. Because of His great love for me, I am what I am today.

As a new follower of Christ Jesus, I wanted to know Him more deeply. I started at the beginning of the Bible, Genesis is such an exciting book! But when I told a fellow Christian what I was doing, she explained to me that you can’t just read the Bible, we must study it. That was the end of my getting to know God’s Word. I hadn’t been raised as a Christian so I didn’t know the Bible stories that many know. I listened to sermons, to studies in person and on the radio but could not relate.


Four years after I had been saved, a wonderful Christian sister, who was teaching a women’s Sunday school class, challenged our class to read through the Bible, even if it takes five years. She explained that we all need to know the whole Word of God so we know what the Pastor is preaching about, so when we study, we have a better understanding.

That, my friends, was the beginning of my reading through the Bible year by year.


Today I continue to read through the Bible in a year. Many of you may have noticed that “Faithful Promises of God” only has 321 days of reading through the Bible. Believe me, it was not me who came up with this. Each day that I read, I asked God to give me the number of Chapters we are to read, then I asked Him to guide me in what to say about what we’ve read. So, it was His guidance that came up with 321 days. As I have read through the Bible each year, I have missed days, and then struggled to get caught up so I could finish at the end of the year. God guided me to get through the Bible in 321 days so that relieves you of the pressure to catch up, you miss a day or two then go back and continue reading. You still will finish reading the Bible within a year.


One last thought, as I have read through the Bible numerous times, God has continued to teach me how to live my life. I read and see new insight each day. His Word is ever living and walks us through our life, it is for today as well as yesterday and tomorrow. I am excited for you to take this journey! If God can call a sinner such as I (saved by His Grace), and fulfill a dream of a young 15-year-old girl, then He will take your hand and show you what you need to know each day through His Word. I want to hear from you, what God has shown you, your adventure of living a Christ-centered life.
