Trent and his college roommate adopted a system where they would studying school text books for fifty minutes, then together would study the Bible for ten minutes, then would study school books for fifty minutes, and so on. Trent's started to average an A, instead of averaging the average grade.
I didn't give this much thought when I heard it. But I have not studied my Bible in the morning during the past week, and my days have suffered. So this morning, I implemented this system into my schedule. Fifty minutes of math, ten minutes of Bible. Fifty more minutes of math, ten more minutes of Bible. And so on. Today is considerably better than yesterday or the day before! I truly believe it is because I snubbed my cell phone and computer, and focused instead on my Bible and academics. If you struggle with your Bible in the morning, I encourage you to try this system. Or if you are public or private schooled and do homework in the evening, try it still! It makes school more enjoyable (yes, that's possible!). You'll notice an improvement in your attitude and time management, and you'll have more free time afterwards.
