12 Creative Ways to Fit in More Bible Time

Reading the Bible is an essential part of a healthy and growing Christian life. We know this. Yet, it can be difficult to develop a real, diligent habit and get more Bible time! Sometimes we’ve just lost our rhythm and sometimes it’s just the season of life we’re in. Regardless, we know how critical it is to read the scripture so that we may know God, learn His ways, judge things rightly, navigate the struggles of life, and so much more.  Still, most of us struggle to establish and keep a daily habit of Bible reading. I know I’ve been there, and it’s easy to let it slide! 
As busy moms, it can be hard to establish a habit of daily Bible reading. Sometimes all we need to get the ball rolling again are some different approaches that will get us back on track. Here are 12 creative ways to fit in more Bible time! Of course, nothing really replaces consistent daily study, but there are times when these will come in handy!

12 Creative Ways to Fit in More Bible Time

The best ideas are often the most simple ones. These are 12 creative but SIMPLE ways that you can fit in more Bible time. Take one or two and try them for a week! They may become part of your ongoing routine or whet your appetite for more scripture reading. The Bible is kind of like that. The more you have, the more you want! 
  1. Bookend your day: Read a chapter of Proverbs in the morning and a chapter of Psalms at night
  2. Read a Proverb each day of the month (since there are 31 Proverbs)
  3. Focus on verse memorization and prayer, meditating on one verse/passage at a time
  4. Put the Bible in the bathroom (no judgement here lol!)
  5. Tack a book ring with memory verses to the bathroom wall and review them when you just need a break before you’re going to lose it! Yes… that’s me some days 🙂 
  6. Turn on the audio of YouVersion and stick it in your back pocket while going about your day
  7. Put worship music on in the background and really praise/worship in those precious pockets of time when they come
  8. Read your Bible or read it on YouVersion in bed in the morning/evening
  9. Change up your reading plan. Try Doorposts’ Busy Mama Bible studies and do them with your kids while they eat
  10. Do a kid’s Bible study along with your children, such as our Bible Brick Challenges or Doorposts’ Busy Mama Bible studies
  11. Schedule a monthly or quarterly coffee shop getaway for in-depth Bible study  
  12. Play The Visual Bible during the day (it’s scripture only and very well done – We have Matthew and love it)

  1. Ooo, I love these ideas. I have a Scripture card ring in my purse, too–started that when I was in the ER / surgery / dr. office so often with our youngest child. Works great even for check-ups in dr. office, sitting in car waiting (for anything, like for me–waiting for buffalo to cross the road LOL), etc.

  2. Great ideas- especially the visual Bible DVD. I had never heard of that, but will be buying it soon!

  3. These are great ideas! I write favorite verses on index cards and use them as bookmarks. That way, any time I open a book, it’s right there to read and review.

  4. Awesome ideas. I love the music in the background (which would subconsciously always keep me in the right state of mind) and the you version going in my backpocket! I joined a women’s group at my church this year and are reading through Philippians. I doing read some of the daily/weekly challenges but I like the idea of daily proverbs. Your tips along with my own and some dedication may get me through at the least a good majority of the bible. Going to check out the suggestions for the kids next! Thank you!

    1. You’re welcome! 🙂
