What is #SheReadsTruth?
Some might call it a happy accident, but we know God doesn’t do accidents.
Here is the story of #SheReadsTruth.
Sometime in early May, 2012, Maggie tweeted something about getting back into reading the Bible daily. Where should she start? Kacia replied to her and said why don’t we read something together?
So they talked, and they tried to figure out what to read. Should they go through a devotional together? Talk on the phone about it each day? Should they go through Paul’s letters? Should they just pick books of the Bible, journal each day + share their thoughts? Should they email? Text? Call?
So many options.
She looked at the plan.
She texted Maggie.
She said “let’s do this.”
and Maggie said “yes! Let’s.”
[sun goes down. sun goes up.]
The next morning, Maggie sends out a tweet.
and people started wondering what they were reading. People just kept asking!
So they told everyone who asked:: join! Find the Soul Detox reading plan on the YouVersion app. Read along with us!
But what’s the point of community if we can’t learn from one another?
Kacia texted Maggie again. <– poor thing! ;o]
They needed a hashtag. Something to use that people could use to search and find everyone else reading the SAME scripture that day. People could learn from one another. People should share what He’s teaching them or ask for prayer. People could see first hand the power of His word in this new community as His word is read daily. For many, it was getting back into a habit that had somehow been lost.
It was making our time with Him a priority.
It’s what we’re doing. We are women reading His truth together. + truth is what we need to cling to.
#SheReadsTruth defined this small, growing community perfectly.
You will be challenged. You will grow in His word: I promise.
