Pigs and Tigers

Found this online today.  It's pigs and tigers.  Sometimes it turns out that pigs take care of baby tigers and tigers take care of baby pigs AND they dress the pigs in little tiger costumes.  How do you not love it!

Tigers and Pigs

Go. Look.  You will smile and never regret it.

Little known fact, when it comes to the Bible, I am ignorant.  Really.  I know very few stories, very few passages.  I find reading it to be dry and I really have to focus, read slowly, go back and re-read before any of it sticks with me.  Now this whole thing is odd because I honestly believe that you need a personal relationship with God and the best way is to know his word and the apply it practically to your life.  So I finally decided to do something about it.  

I had a message in my facebook messages from Maggie's sister-in-law Tiffany from forever ago that recommended a site called youversion.  I hadn't paid much attention to be perfectly honest.  The other day, I decided it was time to look.  I wanted to do a Bible study.  My first official study.  Let me just say, youversion is awesome!

It has 7 full pages of reading plans.  It has chronological options, new and old testament reading plans.  It has so many topically studies I think would be absolutely great like studies on dealing with anger, love, marriage, learning to see Jesus, joy, obedience, forgiveness and even a plan that explains why you should read the bible and a whole study that explains who Jesus was and why he is so important.  There are 3 day, 5 day, 7 day, month and year long programs.  And a 21 day program for busy ladies.  

I decided to start first with the Bible in 90 Days plan.  I think as I get more in the habit of reading regularly, then I can start adding in the short studies.  What I think is really great about this site, aside from the tons and tons of choices to get started, is the fact that you can change the type of bible you read.  I can switch back and forth between King James, NIV, the Message, etc. and find the type that helps to make things the most clear.  All the plans are availabe in TONS of languages tell everyone ya know!  You can also have the daily readings sent to your cell phone or other devices, which eliminates some of the problems with convenience.  Basically what I'm saying is, this site is fantastic.  Best of all, its FREE!  Yay!  Bebop your way on over and get signed up.  Like we Fox girls say, for that price, you can't afford not to!  If this guy can do it, so can you!
