May 2015 Scripture Challenge

Last year I started the May Scripture Challenge as a way for us to keep each other accountable and encourage each other to spend time in the Word. I was amazed at the community that came together  and committed to reading Scripture every day in the month of May…so this year…we are doing it again! I would love for you to join us!

The Challenge:

  • Read scripture every day in the month of May.
  • Share a photo on instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #lampandlight so that we can encourage each other on the journey and inspire others to make Scripture a priority.

How to get ready:

  • Decide what you are going to read. I recommend choosing a book of the Bible and starting at the beginning, but if you are already in a reading plan or going through a study you don’t need to choose something else.
  • Prepare your heart. Ask God to encourage your heart throughout the month of May, and instill in you a love and desire for God’s Word.
  • Ask a friend to join you. I will be here to cheer you on, and will be checking out the hashtag often, but it would be great to ask a friend or a few to try to commit with you so that you can encourage each other.
  • If you aren’t sure how to study Scripture, you can read this post about how I do it.
  • Share the image below on Facebook or instagram and ask friends to join in.
  • You can also share it on Pinterest using the Pinterest button at the bottom of the post.


I am so excited to see old and new friends participate in this challenge, because I know that Scripture is powerful. Let me know if you have any questions by leaving a comment here or on instagram, or by using the contact page above to send me an email.

I’m going to try again! God is cheering me on even though I fell last time! :-)

[…] So instead of scrolling past this image with faint acknowledgment, I viewed Kristin Schmucker’s site, and read all about the May Scripture Challenge. […]

I’m so happy I joined in! This challenge has truly blessed me and met me exactly where I am during this current season. I wrote a post about it on my blog today. I appreciate your encouragement and heart for the Lord!

[…] Some of you may recall a post I wrote a couple weeks ago, where I shared my involvement with Kristin Schmuker’s May Scripture Challenge. […]

[…] Kristin Schmucker periodically hosts #lampandlight challenges, to read the Bible every day for a month. Posting images of your quiet time or Bible or journal can keep you going and remind others who are taking part. But more than that, the hashtag is used by loads of women throughout the year, so it’s another great way to keep accountable to stay in the word. Why not make a commitment to read the Bible daily, even if it’s just a verse, and share a picture? […]
