My most consistent prayer is for wisdom. Time and again I find myself crying out to the Lord for the discernment and understanding necessary to navigate life. I cling to the words of James,
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given to him.
I claim the promise of that verse knowing my desire for wisdom is pleasing to the Lord. About 15 years ago, I began a practice I’d heard Billy Graham used as well — reading a chapter of Proverbs every day. More than any other action I have taken, this one discipline has influenced and increased my knowledge and application of God’s Word and plan to my daily life.
As a Bible teacher and mentor to women and girls, I have lost count of how many times I’ve recommended this simple plan to others. For new believers, Proverbs is simple to understand and apply. For those of us who have lingered long with the Lord, the depths of wisdom in this book are never-ending. And for everyone in between, the habit of reading a chapter of Proverbs every day is great way to spend meaningful time in the Bible.Ready to jumpstart your quiet time?

This is why I am extremely excited to share my newest resource with you —
Choose Wisdom: a devotional journey through Proverbs is the result of many years of time reading and re-reading the familiar passages of this book of wisdom. Each day you’ll read a chapter of Proverbs and then a short devotion designed to help you understand a concept or idea from the chapter as well as a way to apply what you’ve learned to your life. After all, wisdom is rooted in the application of knowledge.
Choose Wisdom is an invitation for you to explore Proverbs with me. All of the devotions are gleaned from the lessons God has taught me as I’ve invested in the study of this great book. And, perhaps more than anything else I’ve written, this little book is a glimpse into the work God is continually doing in my heart and life.
I know it’s easy when life gets busy to let time in the Word slip to the side … but I firmly believe Choose Wisdom can be a great way for you to stay on track. Choose Wisdom is available for Kindle and Kindle apps which means you can have it on your phone or tablet and use it when you’re in the car line, waiting at the doctor’s office, or halfway watching soccer practice.Looking for a simple way to spend time growing in the Word every day?
