Do you read the Twible?

The following aren’t to replace daily scripture study, but are resources for when you need a quick dose of scripture or are dealing with teenagers (who have shorter attention spans than toddlers).

Bible in a Minute (The name says it all.)

We’re a wee bit of twitter fanatics. We live tweet General Conference every year and help the LDS church out by doing the “urban” translations for them (it’s an unofficial calling). So of course we love the Twible (pronounced like Bible).

Jana Riess, tweets a Bible chapter a day and adds a little humor all in 140 characters or less. An extra bonus of the Twible is that it’s a good jump off for bible discussion among the teen populous. Check it out here.

So there you have it, there is no reason not to get your scripture reading on even on busy days! Got any tips for more effective scripture study, making it happen daily or getting kids excited about it?

    haha This is great.

    My only tip to scripture study is to go there with a question and answer it by looking in the topical guide and reading what is actually applicable to your life circumstances/feelings in that moment. I used to help my kids do the same. It makes the scriptures more real and helps you see them as a way to get answers you want and need rather than a duty.

    I loved the video. It would be a good one to show in a seminary class. I taught seminary for 4 years and loved every minute. I have always loved teaching the youth. I love the scriptures and enjoy studying them in different ways. Thanks for a smile today.
    Blessings to you both!

    If one can condense Bible in a minute, the BoM shouldn’t take more than 30 seconds.

    Absolutely, then there would really be no excuse for the seminary-ers to be up on their BoM game!

    That’s great advice Sista Sue, it really does give scripture study more purpose if we start with a question.
