In this encouraging article, Adam Nesmith discusses a helpful guide to spending more, regular time in God's Word, which is taken from “Keep a Quiet Heart” by Elisabeth Elliot (Revell, 2004).
"I think we need to distinguish between quiet time and a full on, in-depth Bible study. If you plan on having the latter every morning before you start your day, you are setting yourself up to fail. You might occasionally be able to complete an in-depth Bible study before work or before caring for kids. But more often then not, your morning quiet time will be a half-hour to an hour time where you get to pray and spend some time reading a section of God’s Word."
