[WRITER] ‘Church as Family’ Bible Notes with ‘Day by Day with God’

Day by Day with God is published by BRF (the Bible Reading Fellowship), written by women for women. Each day a Bible passage is selected, a key verse focused upon, and then an explanation or application is suggested, along with further suggestions to help move women forward in their spiritual journey. This is the second time that I’ve been asked to write for these Bible notes, and was given the theme of ‘Church as Family’, which as a single woman I was particularly happy to be asked. On #WorldCancerDay, I have been very grateful for the wider church family for their prayers and practical support, and also those outside the church, especially #YBCN (for under 45s), and UK BC Support Group, and #WIASN and @beyondchoc, throughout my own cancer treatment.

I wrote the material around a year ago, and here’s the front cover, as received last month:

My section of material (14 days) starts today, and here’s the introductory page:

I hope some find it helpful. x


[WRITER] Day by Day With God @BRFOnline

This arrived this morning, via a little tour to the CODEC offices in Durham, and my new next door neighbour nicely took the parcel in:


I remember ‘gulping’ somewhat when given Genesis to focus upon for late August for these daily Bible readings, but plenty of notice was given, so plenty of time to think and pray it over … with the majority of the actual writing done on a train to/from the 2015 Spring Harvest if I remember rightly!

Day by Day with God is published by the Bible Reading Fellowship, seeking to find culturally relevant but theologically sound ways of engaging with the world, and developing discipleship through active Bible reading.

Ali Herbert is the editor for this edition, and my fellow writers are Katy Jack, Chine Mbubaegbu, Sandra Wheatley, Alison Teale, Rosemary Green (husband Michael), Ann Warren, Ali Herbert, Michele Morrison and Amy Boucher Pye.
