January 2021 Bible Reading Plan + 31 Challenges to Help Start the New Year Right

Happy New Year! *throws confetti* Friends, we made it through 2020!

I am so excited for a new year and a fresh start. I’m going to be completely honest, though—I’m also a little anxious about this year and what’s to come. All of the changes and uncertainties and unknowns. It’s hard, and I’m tearing up a little bit while I write this. If you’re feeling this way, you’re not alone! But I’m choosing to put my trust in Jesus. I know that no matter what happens this year, He’ll be by my side. And that’s a reason to celebrate!

Believe it or not, this will be my SEVENTH year making these monthly Little Bible Plans! What is time?! I just want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has participated in these plans over the years—all of your pictures, videos, sweet comments and encouraging messages have meant the world to me. I’m so excited to kick off 2021 studying God’s Word with you!


As is our yearly tradition, we’ll be kicking off the New Year with the book of Proverbs! There are 31 chapters in Proverbs and 31 days in January, so you’ll have one chapter to read each day.

Also, every day you’ll find a fun and intentional challenge designed to help you start the New Year right. Here are some examples:

  • Choose a theme verse for 2021.
  • Write down 5 goals for this month.
  • Pray before you start your day.
  • Create a productivity playlist.

And more! You can complete as many or as little of these challenges as you’d like. There are no rules!

Wishing you all a Happy New Year filled with healing, restoration, growth, and lots & lots of Jesus.
