What if I miss a day or two? Don’t worry… carry on from the next day – it’s a journey to a habit not a guilt trip!
Which version of the Bible should I choose? The one you will read! Choose a Bible version that’s understandable and easy to read for you. Some popular versions are NIV / NLT / NASB / ESV
What If I Struggle to read? Try LISTENING to one of the online versions (Search Audio Bible) or grab it via Bible App, YouTube, Podcast or on CD or MP3. You can even listen via Amazon Alexa!
What If I already do this? Keep going and don’t forget to get in your huddle to respond and encourage others
Does the Huddle replace my Connect Group? No, it will complement your group and feed into the life of it. It is also a great extension to Bible Buddies if you are currently in a Bible Buddies pair.
