How do I dBrag?
Here's the basic idea:

You and a few friends decide to start a dBrag. You pick a chapter in the Bible and each start reading a single chapter each day. When you've finished reading, you fire up your email program and send a quick email to your dBraggers, letting them know that you've read today. You may want to add a comment about something that really stood out to you as you read. You may want to add a prayer, or encouragement. But, it doesn't have to be complicated - just a few lines is all it takes.

Then, your other friends do the same. You know they read today, and they know you did. That's it! SO simple - yet the daily reading of God's word will wash you and energize you like you won't believe. This is POWERFUL stuff! So, get ready!

How do I start?
It starts with YOU. A simple email to friends is a good way to start. Here's a "blurb" you can copy and paste into an email to your friends to invite them to start a dBrag:


Hey, I've been wanting to be more consistant with my daily Bible reading and I just found out about something called "dBrag" and I wanted to see if you were interested in starting a group with me.

Basically, it's an accountability group that we'd do through email with each other each day. I like it because it's simple and doesn't require too much time, but I think the benefits will be amazing.

Check out the website at www.dBrag.org and let me know what you think. Here's the basic idea:

We pick chapter in the Bible and each start reading a single chapter each day. When we've finished reading, we send a quick email to each other to let each other know that we've read today. We may want to add a comment about something that really stood out to us as we read. It doesn't have to be complicated - just a few lines is all it takes.

Here are a few ground rules:

1 - The object is to read one chapter in the Bible every day - including weekends and holidays.

2 - This works best with groups of 3 to 7 people.

3 - Pray before you read that the Holy Spirit opens your eyes to what God would have for you that day.

4 - Set up a distribution list in your email. Then, email the group daily with your insights and thoughts or even questions (it's best to share what the Holy Spirit reveals to you, not what your study notes say at the bottom of the page). The exchange can be very insightful.

5 - Encourage your brothers/sisters. If they share something that minsters to you, reply to everyone with your thoughts.

6 - Once you have a group of 3 to 7 people that's working, it's best not invite anyone else to join this group. It's difficult to keep up with more people than that.

7 - If this is not for you, please let the others know. There may be others who want to join the group and are just waiting for an opportunity.

8 - If this discipline is blessing you and you want to start your own group later - great. Some people are a part of two or three groups, and the beauty is that all of the groups can be reading the same chapter every day so that you can focus your time and reading.

9 - If you don't email the group after a few days, expect the group to send you a few "encouraging" emails. As easy as dBrag is, the discipline is not so easy. Some have tried all their lives to read the Bible consistently - dBrag is a tool that really works.

10 - One final suggestion - save your thoughts from each chapter in a folder. You will be amazed what the Holy Spirit reveals to you, and you will have folders full of devotions to pull from when the opportunity arises.


Then, don't forget to email me and let me know about your dBrag. Send me any questions, feedback, suggestions, etc. Some have started a blog or website, so send me your link and I'll post it (unless you want to keep it private - and that's fine, too).

Not sure what chapter to start on? There are many Bible reading plans on the Internet, just do a Google search for Bible Reading Plan. Most of these give you plans to read through the entire Bible in a year, but for dBrag, we recommend you read one chapter per day.
