Listen to the Bible

I was getting a little discouraged lately because I was feeling like I was so hungry for the Word of God but I just couldn't find enough time to read the Bible. The early morning was the best time but now that it's summer my 2 year old is up with the sun and the evening time is not so good because I am just so tired I can't focus very well. I was wishing that I could read at times like when the girls are occupied and I am washing dishes but dishes and reading don't go so well together. So what to do I wondered.

I was then blessed to find this site. Here you can download the Bible in MP3 format. Some versions like the KJV offer you the entire Bible for free in MP3 format and others like the NKJV offer the New Testament for free and the entire Bible for a fee.

What a blessing this has been to me Now when the girls are playing or otherwise occupied and I have chores to do, I can fill myself with the Word of God at the same time.

If you'd like more time in the Word check this out! If you don't own an MP3 player you can pick one up with enough capacity to hold the Bible download for about $30 at Wal-Mart. If your budget is a little larger than that, you can always buy a pre-loaded MP3 player with the Bible already on it. These type of players cost about $80 but they have more advanced search features. This one is on my Christmas wish list :0)

Michele,

What a great way to listen to the Word! I used to download studies on my Ipod and walk and I loved doing that too!

Blessings to you today!

Ah! What a fantastic treasure! DH has really been wanting to pick up some Bible CD's to load onto his i-pod, but they're really pricey. This is perfect! I'll be showing it to him when he gets home late tonight- thanks for sharing Michele!

Aren't MP3 players wonderful! I am hoping to load the rest of the empty space on mine with some praise music and sermons from our pastor and some of my other favorite preachers.
