A First Look at 2016

by

Nothing prompts reflection quite like standing at the doorway of a brand new year. As we at #SRThq look back on 2015 and forward over the threshold to 2016, we’re flattened once again by a beautiful fact: Reading Truth with you is one of the great privileges of our every day, every year.

While many of you have been part of the She Reads Truth community for over three years now, even more of you are new to this worldwide family of women. So before we tell you what’s coming during the first quarter of 2016 (and we are so excited to tell you!!), we’d love to take a moment to explain why we’re here.

She Reads Truth exists to be “Women in the Word of God every day.” It is a simple but significant mission, one we try hard to stick to like glue because it is what God has called us to. And where He has called, He has so richly provided! We continue to be surprised by God’s faithfulness each step of the way as He meets the needs of this growing and vibrant community of women in the Word.

We seek to fulfill this mission in two ways: by providing reading plans and resources that invite women to engage God daily in His Word. The Scripture reading plans are offered free on the She Reads Truth site and via email, as well as on the She Reads Truth app for a nominal fee. We also offer optional Study Books to accompany most of our reading plans for an added level of engagement and accountability.

Here is what we need you to know: Because God’s Word is living and active, we believe the Holy Spirit is ultimately all you need to read and respond to Scripture. This is why we aim to create Study Books that provide a beautiful backdrop with ample space to read and encounter Scripture without the distraction of our words immediately alongside. Written responses to each day’s reading are always found exclusively on SheReadsTruth.com and the She Reads Truth app, and we warmly invite you to join us for that further commentary and conversation.

Thank you for your presence in this community, both in the past and in the coming weeks and months. You bless us daily with the way you pursue God in His Word, the way you respond to one another with love and grace, and the way you long to know the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus. We are crazy about you!

Now, on to our plans for early 2016…

We’ve been at work on the 2016 editorial calendar for months now, and we’re thrilled to give you a glimpse into what’s ahead for the She Reads Truth community. As you set your own personal Bible-reading goals for the New Year or make plans with your church or small group, here are important upcoming dates to keep in mind:

GENESIS: January 1-30
(4 weeks)
A study of the book of beginnings, and a look into the first glimpses of God’s covenant faithfulness to His people.

HYMNS V: February 1-5
(1 week)
Another installment in a favorite SRT series, this week-long reading plan (free on the app!) explores the lyrics of five beloved hymns of the Church and the scripture behind them.

LENT: February 10-March 27
(6+ weeks)
A 47-day reading plan presented in 5 parts, the 2016 Lent reading plan walks through the topics of biblical repentance, fasting, and prayer, the book of the prophet Jonah, Jesus’ “I Am” statements from the book of John, and a real-time look at Holy Week, culminating in Christ’s finished work on the cross and His resurrection from the grave.

THE RESURRECTED LIFE: March 28-April 10
(2 weeks)
Picking up where the Lent readings end, The Resurrected Life includes a week of encounters with the risen Jesus, followed by a week in 1 Corinthians 15, as we explore how Christ’s resurrection extends eternal hope in our own lives.

Genesis study books are available now in the SRT Shop, and Lent books are available for preorder (with a free gift with purchase through 1/8!).

Book or no book, we truly hope you’ll grab a Bible (or Bible app!) and join us in 2016 as we seek the face of the God who made us, who loves us, and who is our lasting and imperishable hope.

Thanks be to Him!

  • Alice Carroll

    Hello, in your plans for the year there seems to be a
    gap between hymns V and lent. What should we do then?

  • When will the Lent portion be available on site site?

  • jeannebrandt

    I’m confused. I purchased the Genesis plan and now after 30 days it’s gone. Does that mean I have to buy it again?

  • AChrysantheMOM

    Hmm. Sounds like it could be a synchronization issue. Have you recently purchased a new phone, or reset your password? I’ve experienced a similar issue and had to wait a couple days for my password to sync because I had a new email address. Have you tried contacting Apple?

  • Can someone please help me.. I tried emailing support and no response… I cant seem to purchase any plans. Saying”this item is for an app that was purchased by a different apple id. To buy this item with this apple idylu must first purchase the app… ” i have the same id –& nothing.. Greatly appreciate any direction!:) [email protected] please email me

  • Michaela

    I’m excited!

  • I’m returning back to this app. I’m praying to stay on track this year and to let God really lead me.

  • Jennifer

    So excited to find this website. Just started the Open Your Bible OBS through Lifeway and found She Reads Truth. Purchased the Lent study today. Looking forward to coming here daily.

  • I am new and very much excited to join this !!

  • Destiny Alford

    I’m new to this and very excited!

  • Are the lessons included in the books, or are the books just for notes?

    • Sarah

      I was wondering about this as well. I purchased the first book thinking it was a lesson book but it seems to just be the book of Genesis broken into 30 days.

      • Kendra

        The lessons post daily to the SRT website (or app). The book is used as a supplement to the daily lessons. You can certainly follow along with the lessons WITHOUT the book, though it’s a great resource for organizing the lessons and jotting down notes! *Blessings*

  • Hi, I’m new and I’m so excited. I need all the help I could get.

  • Renée Essig

    Hi! I’m new to this app and so far I like it. I’m excited for the readings. however, is the app crashing on anyone else when you want to go to the Bible?

  • Kiersten

    Is there a way to reset the Bible in a year plan without having to go through and do it manually for each day??

    • She Reads Truth

      Hi Kiersten! We’re so excited you’re committing to another year of reading Truth! 

      Good News: We have the reset feature coming for iOS in the next update, which should be released any time now! We’re just waiting for the approval from Apple:) 

      Grateful to have you in the SRT community!

      Grace and Peace, 
      Kaitlin

  • Beautiful! Such sweet anticipation and soul saturating expectation for what the Lord will lead us all in this year as each moment & day & month unfold to the rhythm of His grace & limitless mercy… SRT is such an effective tool in His hands! Can’t wait to grow, be pruned, thrive, be transformed further in His Truth along with all of you lovely sisters! In the meantime, can someone direct me to where I can PRINT the “Bible in a Year” plan? Thanks heaps in advance.

  • Alison Willis

    • She Reads Truth

      Hi Alison,
      While we don’t have a plan on this specifically, I’d recommend the plan This Is The Gospel. It’s a great starting place!

      xoxo-Kaitlin

  • This app plus the journal “Give me Jesus”by life lived beautifully have drastically altered my quiet time for the better. Both have held me more accountable. So thankful for these tools that have helped me dig deeper into the word and seek him. Excited for these next few study’s and their aid in my study of scripture.

  • Maria Baer

    The Lord is guiding every step of the way, and it is a beautiful thing. I have been part of the group and so amazed (though I shouldn’t be) of the amazing things God is doing for this ministry. I’m really looking forward to the year ahead and being part of your studies is one of my personal goals to help me grow as a woman in God. Thank you for all you do and Have a wonderful and Happy New Year!

  • Churchmouse

    Looking forward to opening the Word with you all! So grateful to everyone at SRT who so lovingly put together the reading plans and study books to encourage and enhance our reading. You guys bless me every day and I am grateful! (Btw, both of my daughters join me with SRT- a great mother – daughter bonding tool!)

  • Thank-you for the ‘easel’ that allows us to enjoy His Presence, be enveloped in His Word and, that encourages us to invite others to the “painting party” as we watch God make beautiful things out of our lives!!❤

  • That all sounds amazing- look forward to studying with you. Thank you for all you do in putting together these reading plans. Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

  • Sandra Graham

    Can’t wait! New to SRT and loving it…

  • I’ve been coming to She Reads Truth for about a year now, not consistently, and never conversing with other She’s through the comments, etc. This past year has reminded me how much I need the Lord, and I want to depend on Him with my ALL this year, especially as I enter a new season of becoming a wife and possibly starting our own family. I want to seek only Him and truly experience His Joy. I look forward to truly being a part of this community in 2016. I’ve also never ordered a study book and am expecting Genesis tomorrow (hopefully). Can’t wait to grow and fall deeper in love with Jesus with you all!<3

  • Praise and thanksgiving for each and everyday with SRT!

  • Kara Lawler

    Will all of these plans be available on the app! I love the app and how it tracks what I read every day!

    • She Reads Truth

      Hi Kara,
      YES! They will all be available on the app :)
