It is such a great question that I want to share my answer with all of you as well.
This week we are kicking up a new challenge – The Ultimate Productivity Challenge. We are working through the little and big things in our lives like our schedules and our routines (like Quiet Times) and our business/ministry projects and our relationships. This is the month to tweak those sticking spots so we can take massive action towards our calling, life purpose, and destiny.

Thanks! I am looking for some good devotionals. It helps if they are able to be used on the computer/tablets for my eyes, but I do have a system that I can read books through. Any suggestions?
I begin every day just soaking in worship. I set my alarm for about an hour before I need to get up out of bed. I just soak in worship. It sets the whole day in focus of Jesus. For example, this morning I am soaking to this video: https://youtu.be/s3zuCGQbclI
I love all types of music, but in the morning I really love music that is soaky.
I just started listening through the 90 Day Bible on YouVersion. I have done it and other plans before, but right now I wanted a total immersion in the Word.
YouVersion is available online: https://www.youversion.com or through their app (what I use). They also have a Kids Bible App. They have the whole Bible in 2,058 versions and 1,372 languages. It is produced by Craig Groeschel’s church, Life.Church.
You download the app and then you can either read directly from the Bible or you can set up a daily reading plan that works for you. There are so many plans. There are some that are light devotionals with a small amount of Scripture to just soak in or you can have more extensive studies and reading plans. I love it! I have done many through the years.
I felt that the Lord wanted for me to dig into the 90 Day Bible again. It is soooo good. In 90 days, it takes you through the entire Bible. Really good immersion in the Word.
I am also just turning on the audio to play it for the hour. I do this from time to time.
One of my professors in college (who has an incredible quiet time that I admire) recommended that we could just immerse ourselves in the Word by also listening to the Bible. At that time, I was studying Jonah in another class. I listened to the entire book of Jonah every day in a different version during my daily work commute. It was soooo powerful that I have kept this spiritual discipline up. Listening through the 90 Day Bible is perfect for me right now.
I am also working through Lucia’s newest book. TALK ABOUT WOW!
Her newest book is “ABC’s of Who I Am.” It is right on time. I just began a journal where I am listing everything that I find in the Word that tells me who I am. She has faith confessions and Scripture verses right there in her book. It is powerful!
I am just praying through what God wants for me to know about ME. It is very, very good!
I am also doing a devotional (book) with Donna Ammons. She is doing it with her painting classes through her business/ministry A BRUSH WITH JESUS (See her on Facebook). It is very good. It is “Becoming His” and it is about “finding your place as a daughter of God.”
Throughout every day I have worship going all day long. I love Bethel, Stephanie Gretzinger (playing right now), Amanda Cook, Upper Room, Elevation Music, and others. I am also enjoying all of the videos and things that my friends are producing right now. Lots of the very best worship and teaching that I have ever heard. I try to share it on my Facebook.
Well, hope this helps. If you have any other questions on this or other topics, just drop me a line.
