Hi friends! July's Little Bible Plan is finally here! I'm sorry for not posting it sooner—I've been working full-time at a Christian campground, and these last few weeks have been absolutely insane (and wonderful!). I feel like I could fall asleep while typing this, haha, so this post may be a little shorter than normal!
I know I say this a lot, but boy oh boy, I am SO excited for this month's plan! We're continuing on with Isaiah, and as I was looking up this month's passages I came across so many incredible verses that I can't WAIT to study with you guys! (And if this is your first time doing the Little Bible Plan, don't worry, you can jump right in Isaiah with us!)
This month's calendar also features 31 fun challenges to help you grow in your faith and make the most of your summer! Don't sweat it if you can't complete them every day—these are just for fun. The most important part is getting in the Word of God!
I'm so thankful for each and every one of you and I just love seeing all of your pictures, comments and messages. I hope you enjoy using this month's Little Bible Plan and have a wonderful July!
Hello friends! Happy (almost) June and (almost) summer! I am too excited to share this month's Little Bible Plan with you! Each day features a fun challenge designed to help you grow in your faith and seize the start of your summer. But don't worry about completing the challenges every day—the most important part is the Bible passages! This month we'll be starting the book of Isaiah (so much good). I hope you'll join along!
xo, Jenny ♡
P.S. (Thank you to those who've stuck with me this month! I'm sorry I've been so absent. My life has been a bit busy—in a good way!—and I'm finding it hard to balance my blog and Instagram in there somewhere. But I have really high hopes to start posting more, so please bear with me! I love every single one of you!)
Whether you've been using the Little Bible Plan for months or this is the first time you've ever heard of it, I'm glad you're here! Here's what you'll find on this month's calendar. (Free download at the bottom of this post.)

Following God’s Call
Jonah (it’s only 3 chapters!)

What would you do if you were called to something? Would you do it?
Moana felt like she was meant for something more, something big. She didn’t know why, but she wanted to go. The sea called her into dangerous ground; go beyond the reef? It was frowned upon and marked as unsafe.
Jonah also had a calling; he was God’s messenger. He delivered both good and bad news to people all over. Then God told him to go someplace dangerous. Nineveh? That place was also frowned upon and marked as unsafe.
Both Moana and Jonah were told to go somewhere that was going to take courage and obedience. The real difference is how they each reacted.
Moana took her calling and obeyed. She sailed across the sea to complete her mission. What did Jonah do? He sailed across the sea to run away. He ran from God, away from his calling, and away from the mission God had sent him on. It didn’t turn out so well for him until he made the choice to obey and follow God’s lead.
Looking at these two stories, it’s pretty obvious that following your call and obeying God are so important. The only question is: What is our calling, anyway?
Jesus tells us! He said in Matthew 28:19-20 and Mark 16:15 that our mission is to go into the world and tell others about Christ. This is what we were created and chosen to do. It’s a pretty simple mission, but one that people tend to get hung up on almost every day. So often people get caught up in trying to "tell" with their words instead of "telling" with their life. Actions speak louder than words and that will always be true. Jonah professed to be a God-honoring man, but God’s work through him stopped as soon as Jonah took matters into his own hands. God is faithful and He will use you to plant seeds in people’s lives. Just be patient and live out your life with Christ’s agenda first, not yours. Others will see that and want the same.
Hi everyone! Happy March! I had such a blast reading Esther, 1st Peter and Ruth with you all last month. I love getting to see all of your pictures and read what you're learning as we study the Bible together!
Download March's Little Bible Plan PDF at the bottom of this post!
This month's calendar features a 31 Day Photo Challenge. You can follow the daily prompts and take pictures for your own personal album, or you can share them with us on social media! Be sure to use the hashtag #littlebibleplan if you post on Instagram or Twitter. You could also record these challenges on your Instagram or Snapchat story! My hope is that these photo prompts are a fun way for you to share your faith and be encouraged by the pictures your fellow sisters in Christ are posting.
This month's Scripture reading is pretty different—we're going to be reading through four underrated or not-so-popular books of the Bible. Ones I feel like we don't touch that often, but that hold incredible truths that are important for us to learn today!
And, since these passages might be unfamiliar to you, I recommend downloading the YouVersion Bible app and looking up devotionals that go along with these books and that will help you understand what's going on. I'll be posting the devotionals I use on my Instagram story (@christiangirls) throughout the month if you need ideas!
I'm so excited to study the Bible with you guys this month! Can't wait to see what God has in store.
Little Ladies, a short story that's similar to the classic, Little Women, was written by a talented young lady named Molly. Inspired by a movie her and her friends made, this story is based off of 1 John 1:7 and teaches a valuable lesson about walking in the light. We know you'll enjoy this story and hope you'll share it with all the little ladies you know!

Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a great start to 2017! I had such a blast looking at all your amazing Little Bible Plan posts last month. Can't wait to see what February has in store!
This month's passages are centered around royalty and being a princess of the One True King. We're going to be reading through Esther, 1 Peter, Ruth and a chapter in Isaiah.
This calendar also features 28 days of creative prompts that you can complete in your Little Faith Book, journal or Bible! (You can check out the Little Faith Book here!)
As always, be sure to use the hashtag #littlebibleplan on Instagram and Twitter to share how you're using your plan! I can't wait to see all your creative and inspiring posts! ♡
Hi guys! I hope you enjoy this tutorial on how I made paper clip bookmarks for my Bible! It was super simple and I used supplies I already had around my house. These add such an adorable and personal touch to your Bible!
Download my FREE printable at the bottom of this post! It features all the images I found on Google for my bookmarks, but you can use any pictures that fit your style.
Print out my free printable or any pictures of your choice on white card stock paper.
Cut the images out. This requires some patience, so take your time! I recommend getting comfortable and putting on your favorite Christian music.
Taking a paper clip and your hot glue gun, add a small dot of hot glue to the top of the paper clip. (Make sure your paper clip is facing the right way, so it will attach to your Bible with the bookmark on top!)
Take one of your pictures and attach it to the hot glue dot. Let dry.
Repeat steps three and four with the rest of your images!
And that's it! You're ready to stick them in your Bible!
If you try this out, be sure to post a picture on Instagram or Twitter and tag me! I'd love to see!
Download my printable below! It's totally free, no strings attached, but it would mean a lot to me if you'd like to follow my social media accounts and share this post on Pinterest! ♡
Happy New Year! I'm so excited for 2017! I've been planning several things that I can't wait to share with you guys—including something special having to do with the Little Bible Plan. (Hint, hint.) As hard as it is to believe, I've been making these Bible reading plans for two years now! I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has used my plans, left an encouraging comment or posted about them on social media. I wouldn't still be going if it wasn't for you guys! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. All the praise and glory goes to God!
To kick off 2017, I hope you enjoy this Little Bible Plan Calendar, which features a Bible passage to read and a challenge to complete each day! (Download button at the bottom of this post.)
THE PASSAGES: Every January with the Little Bible Plan, we read through the book of Proverbs. Proverbs has 31 chapters, so there's one for each day in January!
THE CHALLENGES: This month's challenges are all focused on fresh starts, goals for 2017 and—most importantly—growing closer to God. Please don't feel pressured to do all the challenges! It's okay if you miss days. This isn't as much about checking off every single challenge as it is growing in your faith and having fun at the same time.
I can't wait to see pictures and posts about what you're learning this month! Please feel free to send them to me or use the hashtag #littlebibleplan on Instagram and Twitter! I'll be posting a lot on those places as well.
I hope you all have a wonderful 2017, full of fresh starts, blessings and Jesus!
