Daily Audio Bible Podcast

One of my “aspirations” for the year was to do my daily devotionals, grow in my faith and attend church more regularly.  Last year, I did some research to see how I could go through the Bible in a year.  I decided that the best thing to do was to download the “Daily Audio Bible Podcast.”

This may sound stupid, but it was WAY over my head.  I couldn’t keep track of everything that was going on, who did what in the Bible, etc.  It was very overwhelming for me to listen to, and it got to the point that I kind of blocked it out on my way to work (thinking about how much over my head it was, and then praying while the podcast was going on in the background.)

So, this year, I decided to try the Daily Audio Bible Podcast for Kids.  These are 10 minute excerpts for kids, but they are PERFECT for me.

I swear, I have ADHD (undiagnosed,) and these 10 minute blurbs every day, read by two children with comments from their father (the creator of Daily Audio Bible Podcast) are perfect to keep me motivated, and able to understand what is going on in the Bible.  I love it!

So, if there is anyone out there that is new on their walk and want to get familiarized with the Bible and devotions, I highly recommend this podcast on iTunes. 

Not only do I listen to the children read the Bible, but then I reinforce what they say and go back to read it myself while I’m at home.  It has worked out great so far (even though I’m only a week into it.)

  1. On thing that may help you Meg, is to get a Bible with an easier to understand NIV....start with the first book in the New Testament (Matthew) and read straight through to the end (Revalations)....maybe read 15 or 20 mins a day...I think you could get a great understanding and an easy start by doing it this way...another great thing to do is read one chapter of Proverbs daily as there are 31 chapters in this book, one for each day of the month. You will find great wisdom in Proverbs! It makes my heart sing with joy to know you are seeking the Lord! He has my heart...that's for sure! Another great devotional for kids, I like it too, is called Keys for comes in a booklet for free :0)
