Early Morning Revival Challenge

"Inspired by the life, writings, and journals
of John Wesley (1700's), Mrs. White has created
a 90 - day Bible study challenge. .

The program consists of four, easy to follow, daily
assignments. Readers are expected to rise earlier
in the morning than normal; Spend 20 minutes in
prayer, Bible reading, writing in a journal, and
reading quotes from Ministers from long ago. . .

The study is simple to follow, but will take a
tremendous amount of discipline to stay consistent to the very end. . .

If you are up for a challenge and ready for a revival, this book is just what you need!"


This is a slim, 72 page, paperback book, 6" x 9".  The interior has an "antique" look with "cream" colored paper, rather than the traditional "white."  The cover has a photograph of our Vermont Estate Grounds, and looks very peaceful.  I spent hours searching through my home library, to glean a selection of inspiring quotes from Ministers from the 1600's, 1700's and the 1800's.  These include Richard Baxter, Thomas Boston, John Wesley, Samuel Rutherford, John Bunyan, and more (one for each day of the challenge).  The book includes a complete bibliography of quotes, so you can see exactly where they came from.

I intend to start this challenge myself, in just a few days.  I have also ordered a copy for my youngest homeschool student (age 16).  I believe this will be an excellent addition to his studies.  The discipline of reading 2 chapters in the Bible each day (from Psalms and Proverbs), writing in a journal, and praying, before the day begins will be a blessing to both of us!



Reviews - Thoughts from Readers:

"Just lovely."

"I just wanted to send an email to tell you how much your Early Morning Revival Challenge has blessed me! I am about halfway through now, and I LOVE it. I hope you do another one! There is something about those Reformed Bible preachers that really reaches my soul…it’s so refreshing after all the pop-psychology that is in most of the mainstream churches.

I want to get all the ladies in our Reformed church to do it…it’s so nice that it can be done from home without having to go someplace."

"I am on Day 19 of your 90 day Early Morning Revival Challenge...I have been so blessed and look so forward to that special quiet time first in the mornings.I highly recommend it to anyone needing to boost their spirits, get more focused, and gain a closer walk with the Lord."

- A reader, from a blog comment.

"Mrs.White has done a tremendous job finding quotes to inspire you. It is an easy to follow course, but the results will be amazing. If you want to go deeper in your faith I highly recommend this book!"

- Anita, from Amazon.

"Thanks to this book and a little commitment on my part, I have finally, after years of defeat, managed to begin a daily habit of devotion and bible study and prayer. It is a simple book that allows you to record your progress as you embark on a 90 day challenge. It has taken me more than 90 days, but that is okay. The book is still there if I miss a few days and I just pick up where I left off and keep going . The quotes are from the 16 and 1700's and it is so interesting to see that things haven't really changed all that much from then to now."

"So helpful in instilling early morning discipline....it's nothing that you couldn't put together yourself (a daily checklist, with very challenging and edifying quotes from strong revival preachers from the past), but here Mrs. White has done it for you, so why take the time when it's so inexpensive? It would take a lot more time to search out the carefully chosen quotes.
I was struggling with checking email first thing in the morning instead of having my bible time (which I did still do but later) but I find that there is something very special about giving the Lord that first time in the morning. The whole day is so much more productive and joyful. So glad to be back on track."
