Reading Truth

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
~Winston Churchill

Reading_TruthBefore all else. In anticipation of increasing wisdom. My desire is to first seek truth. From whence does this truth derive? God’s Word.

Just recently the Lord brought to my attention an incredible resource, and website, She Reads Truth. I love it! I’ve started using it for my personal summer study (more on that in a moment) and quickly determined we needed to be using this in our homeschooling routine.

She Reads Truth began as a small group of people wanting to be intentional in their study of the Word of God and quickly developed into a full-blown community. At SRT you can partake in daily in-depth study of the Scriptures, choosing from a wide variety of available ‘plans’. As an additional blessing, make a point of joining each day’s conversation regarding the daily topic.

Since the Lord set this before me, I have determined to use SRT as my current study for the summer (seeing as my church women’s group is on summer hiatus). Right now, our focus is studying Acts of the Apostles. This study is amazing! Acts of the Apostles is a verse-by-verse daily devotion, breaking down the Word. We read not only the day’s Scripture reference, but several others which help give better context for the reader. Scripture readings are followed with devotionals by SRT writers. We are then encouraged to join the open discussion of the day’s lesson.

For our homeschooling purposes, we will be starting with the plan ‘Justice‘. I am excited to delve deep into this topic with my children, discovering God’s definition of justice and His plan for bringing justice about. It seems a vital and appropriate topic in our current society. This will now be a portion of Our Morning Basket, along with our additional literature choices.

And just so you fellas don’t feel left out… Yes, there is also an He Reads Truth site! The layout of this website follows She Reads Truth almost exactly. The available plans differ slightly from SRT, but look absolutely amazing. Each study is written by a team of incredible gents sharing the gospel and daily truths the Lord has given.  To be fair, I have no personal experience with He Reads Truth – being a lady myself – but if HRT is anything like SRT, you’ll be blessed.

You can read any and all available plans (including the current plan, Acts of the Apostles) by accessing either the She Reads Truth or He Reads Truth websites. There is also a handy app for your device, making daily study readily available no matter where you are. Both websites and the app are absolutely free; there is no fee to read along and join in the conversation. For dedicated study, however, consider purchasing the study guides for each plan.

We’re excited to share this wonderful resource with you and your family. If you’re currently looking for a summer Bible study plan or wish to be involved in an active study group, this might be what you’re looking for.

“In Him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in Him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of His glory.”
Ephesians 1:13-14

  1. You used one of my all time favorite Churchill quotes – very appropriate these days.

    We just started a wonderful Bible study last night with older girls in our AHG troop. It is focused on establishing the habit of daily Scripture, daily prayer, daily journaling within the context of a study about Christ, and then discussing ways to share Him with others. I’m praying for fruitful responses in our girls.

    I am really grateful for the many resources out there for Christians who seek to study the Lord. It is truly a blessing!

  2. We’re working our way through Genesis. Stopping at all the key and sometimes uncomfortable points to discuss them, like creation and evolution, human origins, good and evil; Lot, his wife and daughters; Sarah’s mocking disbelief, Abraham’s deceit on one hand and yet his obedience to God’s call on the other. Apart from a semester studying Joseph, I’ve always stood a little back from Genesis, but have been surprised by the relevance of the entire book and could/would dig deeper if I had more time to teach it. Some of the key themes that bridge to us today are human responsibility, human response and God’s active response to both. I’ve been blessed to already have material on hand and have been led to some other texts that have enriched the journey. When it comes to teaching it all, the real challenge is knowing how much is too much. It’s also, oddly, coincided with an heavier than usual cross-examination and proselytizing, online, by an atheist/ ”ex-” Christian, friend who’s just read R.Dawkins’ book The God Delusion?. That has been an unwelcome and exhausting distraction, but one I’m doing my best to pray through and learn from.
