Don’t Break the Chain!

It’s a tradition that we dedicate the first month of the year to helping you run toward God’s Word. We’re convinced that nothing matters more as we step into a new year.

In 2016, I challenged the readers of this blog to start a chain to keep track of every day you’ve read God’s Word. Some of you have been adding to that chain daily ever since. (Check out the video of that challenge below.)

One reader wrote to me about that post with this suggestion.

Hi Erin,

Last year in January you did a post called “Start a Chain That Will Change Your Life.”

My sister and I started that and are still doing it. I was thinking it would be great to find out how many others are still doing it after a year. I would love it if in January you would make another post and see how many girls are still doing this.

Thanks so much for serving through the Lies Young Women Believe blog!

In Christ,


I love Leah and her sister’s commitment to open God’s Word every day. I wish I could take a peek at their paper chain with over 600 links on it now! What a remarkable reminder of the Bible’s unique ability to transform us from the inside out.

Whether you’re like Leah, and have been recording your time in God’s Word for a while now, or you’re looking for a way to stay motivated in 2018, will you join us in starting (or continuing) a chain that can change your life?

Check out the video below and leave us a comment letting us know if you’ll start a chain in 2018.
