Resolution kept!

I would have struggled to read the bible in a year on my own, and would definitely drop my resolution after Abraham’s story, or maybe even before. This way I can help out at home and listen to scripture, and then later on reflect on the readings again when I pray.
This has been so so helpful! Thank you ascension! And thank you God 💕✨

Day 365 on December 31st - all thanks to God!
I know I didn’t do it perfectly but I have another year to do it all over again ❤️
