"I don't know where or how to start."
"I don't really have the time to dig in."
"It seems really complicated."
"I don't know what to underline or highlight or circle."
I hear this from women in my life all the time. I hear it from the real-life women I mentor and I hear it from the women of the Because I'm His tribe too.
I see a generation of women paralyzed by limiting beliefs when it comes to opening their Bibles.
I see women who genuinely want to dive in — but they just don't know how.
I see moms and wives and friends and sisters who desperately want to reap the benefits of digging into God's word — but they are held back by the thought that their time in their Bibles has to look and feel a certain way.
And more than that — I see an enemy lurking in the shadows, silently cheering as he keeps us from the life-giving truth living within the pages of our Bibles.
Girl — here is the honest-to-God truth:
Reading your Bible doesn't have to be complicated.
You don't need all the pretty pens and craft paper journals. You don't need the commentaries or the 60-day reading plans or the fancy pants studies.
And while all those things are good and incredibly helpful — for some of us, they can actually be a barrier to the One who we are so desperate to know: Jesus.
