Fresh Start 2013: Day

Our new plan | a fresh start


Hey ladies!

It was such a joy for us to walk through the Advent season with you all and we pray that you were able to draw nearer to Jesus as we followed the beautiful story of His great rescue plan for us. The new year is quickly approaching and we’re wondering if you’re craving a fresh start as much as we are.

As a team, we’ve really been seeking the Lord about what He wants from SheReadsTruth and how we can care well for the thousands of women who are committing to reading God’s Word together in 2013. We know that as a body of women we want to be not just readers of the truth, but women changed by truth and we’re praying that He will give us wisdom to lead this site in that direction only.

That being said, we’re really excited about a new way we’re doing our reading plans this year. We’re going to be digging into the Bible and not hopping around as much, verse-wise. We’ve brought on a few more writers to help round out our collective voice – women from different walks of life, with different stories, but the same passion for God’s Word. We may also take a few strategic breaks throughout the year where we read a pre-written plan together rather than publishing a new one ourselves, so that our writers and editors have time to really soak in God’s Word as well and not be in constant production mode. Our hope is that the community of women will be blessed by all these small shifts in the way we run this site and ministry.

We’re going to start our first plan of the year, A Fresh Start, on January 1st and we’d be so overjoyed to have you join us. The plan walks purposefully through God’s gifts of redemption, reconciliation, and recreation throughout many parts of the Bible – just like He works those themes so amazingly in many different parts of our lives. Our prayer is that rather than being a group of women who set out to make our own selves better through lists and half-hearted resolutions, we would come together and read the true story of the One who is always making things better, always giving us a fresh start. Let’s get to know Him and praise Him as we read about His redemptive power and respond to His Word as women who want to be made new daily.

The plan will be available on YouVersion, and don’t forget you can check out a quick video here to see how to join the plan on your phone, iPad, or laptop. Simply search YouVersion’s plans for “A Fresh Start” or “She Reads Truth” and you’ll be able to find it easily! And of course, every day’s devotional will be posted here for you to check in and interact with other women!

Tell your friends, sisters, moms, and daughters to join you as we seek Him and His truth together.

We’ll see you on the first of January!

The SheReads Truth team

  • Just started this. Any suggestions about catching up. I really would like to get caught up and into the Soul Detox. Or can I do them together?

  • iamdestiny

    I need a fresh start trying to strengthen my faith and weaken doubt, and worrying.

  • Beth Murphy

    I’m excited to start this journey.

  • Just found this site today and I was struck with the idea that I really do need to let God make things new! I am constantly trying to do it all myself, and then when I fall I lose motivation. Looking forward to a fresh outlook!

  • The Crafting Coop

    I'm so glad this plan is a fresh start. This is something I need in my life. I hope that I stick with it more daily than having to play catch up like I have been. Love to y'all

  • Hi all, am new to the site and looking forward to the plan helping me grow more purposeful and closer to God.

  • I just happened to find out about this site yesterday, and I couldn't be more excited about it!!

  • Autumn Dawn Leader

    I know God has led me to She Reads Truth to keep me plugged into the Word and encouraged throughout this coming year. I'm really looking forward to joining the other ladies and allowing God's awesome, liberating Truth to do a work in and through me.

  • I am really excited about a New Fresh start with God!! I will be turning 30 this year and its time to really get serious about the Lord. Thank you God for everything you have done and will do in my life!

  • Sharon moon

    I am so excited to go on this journey with you ladies. God is so amazing.

  • I am excited to join you ladies this new year. SRT has really help me in reading the bible daily.. understanding his words and growing spiritually… there is so much to learn and I enjoy reading al the comments very much… thank you to everyone who share

  • Thank you to the many women representing our various steps in life who have graciously agreed to write for SheReadsTruth. God uses our talents in so many different ways, and I’m thrilled to see God at work in this community of believers! On a side note, I am a 33 year old high school teacher with a passion for leading young lives to Jesus. Because my district us a public school district, I am not afforded the opportunity to witness directly to my students. However, I am extremely involved in our district’s push at immersing our students more and more into technology, and because of this, my students often view my online links and comments to SheReadsTruth. Thank you, thank you, thank you for opening up the online forms of communication in the myriad of ways you have; my students recognize my subtle nudges of Jesus through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts. The vehicle for leading young lives to Christ’s love is definitely there. Can’t wait to share in and with this new plan! Happy New Year!

  • Jamie T.

    Thank you so much to everyone who writes for this! It is such a great start to my day and I am so looking forward to continue in 2013!

  • Like everyone else, I am really looking forward to this. I'm a teacher, and the events of the past year have left me feeling quite broken. I know I need the Lord to put me back together again. Can't wait to start!

  • Bring it on! I only did the Philippians study and I've decided that I want to do another study with you women in the New Year. Love from Nigeria!

  • I’m very excited about this but am new to the program.I downloaded the app and it took me to this blog page. Is this where I go for the devotionals or does it show up in the app under my plans?

    • Cheri Z

      It will show up on your app … with links for Devotional Content and Scriptures. I come to the site (here) to check out the comments, as my phone doesn't like to load websites sometimes. Welcome! You are going to love this!

  • Am very excited to read, learn and hear from God through this devotion this new year, can't wait to see what God is going to do in our lives as we read truth and share his love.xox

  • I was anxiously awaiting to hear if SRT was going to do a new plan for the New Year, so I’m very happy to hear about A Fresh Start. I cannot wait! One of my goals for 2013 is to engage more with the SRT community, all with the intention of continuing to build community.
    Let’s do this, ladies!!
    xoxo J

  • I am looking forward to joining you this year. I really need the stay focused and accountable in my reading.

  • Magdalene

    I'm so excited for you ladies! There are often parts of the Bible that aren't as well known because they're rarely discussed in sermons, or there aren't any holidays that remind you of these stories. So there are some very important parts of the Bible that many Christian women have missed, and one of the best ways to learn about these Truths are by reading the Bible through :)

    I especially cant wait for you all to read some of these rarely taught sections:
    Deuteronomy 17, 20-22
    Isaiah 17
    Judges 5, 19, 21
    Exodus 21
    Zechariah 14
    1 Corinthians 11
    Revelations 2
    1 Timothy 2
    Ephesians 5

    and so many more :)

    Best of luck, hope you all manage to read the WHOLE Truth through, not just the most "famous" parts we hear in church xox

  • Lookin fwd to it!

  • I can't wait. I have grown so much in my walk with the Christ the past few months thanks to the SheReads truth plans. I thank God so much for you ladies!

  • I am so excited to begin this new plan with you ladies! What a great way to start off the New Year! :)
