We read it together as a family every night... maybe 15 or so minutes!

It really depends. I *Try* to read at least one Proverb a day. I have a devotional for toddlers that we remember sometimes, and we have Bible study as part of our homeschooling.

As far as "in depth" I spend about 2-3 hours a week preparing for my small group- not including meeting with my co-leader to discuss last week and prepare for the next.

I really wish we were the family that sat down every night and read it, but so far that hasn't been a reality.

I wish I read mine more...I even long to read it more but then I make excuses because "life" happens. I usually read at least 15 minutes a day. I really need to be in the Word more. DH has been praying for me in this area because we have daily chats about what we've read and I have to admit that I haven't read much.

I should read more than I do. I am trying to improve on this. I am guilty of letting life get in the way and then when I do decided to sit down and read I am so tired that I can't concentrate and I end up falling asleep before I get my reading done. Now I am trying to get up just a bit earlier in the mornings and read BEFORE anyone else is up so that life can't get in the way.

mommy2eden & Steph, have you considered a Bible study? Well, I know you have Steph considering you asked about them in another thread! I have learned for me Bible studies help me get into the Word in a way that I get it. I have & do read the Bible but a lot of it goes over my head unless I'm doing it in a Bible study. Just a thought!

30minutes to an hour depending on the situation. I sit down with my coffee and my devotional after I have gotten our toddler her milk and breakfast and fed the dogs. Some days she does her thing and allows me quiet time. Sometimes I admit I will hide in the bathroom just to read alone. LOL
