      I used to write my prayers. I want to start listening to worship before I begin quiet time.

      Lots of devo books. FCA materials. Our Daily Bread in my Inbox. I need to do more of just reading the Bible.

      I use a variety of devo methods. I have a couple different daily devo books I read and will respond with what God spoke to me that day, as well as using the You Version Bible app verse of the day to reflect on.

      I have done them both morning and night. As the kids got older, I found the mornings were best. I journal, read and use videos. The journaling I will do forever, it’s so cool to look back and see the journey

      A deep search of the Bible, one book at a time, along with prayer for immediate and long range needs, all accompanied with a few notes carefully thought through. This has been very helpful to me. I plan to stay with this in the future.

      I have used devotional books and inspirational books as well as Bible study. I like using the devotional books because they help me not only see what God was saying at that point in time but also how it applies to me now.

      Before it’s just bible reading and though devotionals. Now I would love to really get deep in Bible study asking questions thoroughly.

      I do Bible Study fellowship currently-a bible study that is broken down into daily exercises. In the past I have used many devotionals including the Bible apps daily devotionals, Jesus calling and some other studies from books I have read depending on the time of the church calendar. (Advent, Easter, Lent, etc.). I like Bible study fellowship the best because it goes back and for the between the old and new testaments each day.

      I have used devotional books, reading a book of the Bible and journaling, watching video lessons and journaling. I have not read the Bible through in a year study. I might try that next.

      I have followed bible reading plans, but it seems to be the best when I just ask the Lord to guide me on what to read and/or what to pray about. I love reading in Romans, John, also the letters – Collasians, Ephesians, Galatians, Phillipians – these always seem to have a word the Lord wants to speak to me.

      I like to go through a book of the Bible, inductively and some exegesis; currently am going through the book of Hebrews. In terms of a daily devotional, I like New Morning Mercies by Paul Tripp.

      I have used devotionals from websites, bloggers, and other sources.

      Currently do prayer journaling, inductive bible study, prayer (without a journal). It is best for me to do this in the morning before I do other things.

      I began meeting with the Lord first thing in the morning when my children where babies. I would get up at least two hours before their regular wake-up time to assure I had my time with the Lord… I have continued that practice even still that all of our children are away at college or married. I use Precept Bible studies, journaling, listening, and prayer.

      journaling has helped me slow down my thinking so that I don’t have such a busy mind when I’m trying to focus on God’s word. Underlining in my bible also forces me to pay attention to what I’m reading.

      I start my devotional time at 5:30 am and spend time in the Word and prayer and journal what I am doing and reading.

      I am using a plan to read through the Bible in a year and do a journal reflection on one passage each day.

      I have done short devotion guides that have a different lesson each day but I prefer working through a book of the Bible a chapter or two at a time.

      I have used many devo methods. I would like to get back to journaling to see what God has done, what he’s doing
      and how He’s working in the lives of others. It would also help me to see how God is leading my life. I also want to include my wife as
      often as possible.

      I like Bible plans that walk me chapter by chapter, book by book. I have some other devotionals, but the DBS method or just reading with a study Bible is helpful. The Youversion Bible app has been a great tool to read in community.

      I’ve tried many devotionals and I’ve tried just sitting and going about it on my own without a “guide”. I’ve never considered journaling and really keeping up with the progress and such. This is something I want to try and want to get consistent on.

      I have tried to have time with the Lord at various times throughout my life. I have found that it has to change based on life’s circumstances. I was encouraged by the idea of setting aside a time and place to meet with God each day even if for 15 min.

      I think following a model and being consistent and writing things down is the most effective.
      I need to start journaling again

      I do Inductive Bible Study alot. I read the Bible and listen for what God is saying to me, then I write that in my journal and meditate on it, look up original meaning and usually write my own Devotion, which I post on my Devotional Site Online.

      I spend lots of time in the morning. I journal, listen read God’s Word, write my devotions. I read another Devotion. I would like to spend more time doing this same thing at the end of the day, too.

      I have used a scripture of the day or daily devotional as a starting point for focus. I also journal. Important to me is capturing what I hear and seeking understanding for application. My greatest challenge is consistency, not in method but availability; therefore, the discipline is a best practice for me.

      The combo of Bible reading and prayers in any order has worked for me hitherto. However, finding and sticking to a consistent timeslot in the day has been a lingering challenge for me. I’ll want to successfully address my timeslots inconsistency issue rather than wanting to try other devotional methods.

      I have not journaled. I like the idea of asking how to apply the verse.

      Setting a time that is consistent has been awesome. If I can’t at that time, making sure it is a priority in the schedule is huge.
