Hello TTW Family! We are finally in the season where everyone is decorating for TTW! That’s what all the orange pumpkins are for, right? I mean, they’re the same color. I just haven’t figured out why pumpkins…
Anyway, fun update today – TTW stickers are in the mail! If you submitted your address after listening to, subscribing, and reviewing our Teach Through the Word podcast, your stickers are in the mail! Well, unless you already received it, in that case, I hope your sticker is on your car or water bottle or somewhere else cool! We sent out over 900 stickers last week – with the help of a few of my favorite kids for stuffing and licking envelopes!
If you don’t receive your sticker soon, please be patient. The USPS just announced mail will be taking a bit longer over the next few months.
Let us know where you put your sticker! Send us a picture of your car, school notebook, or wherever you are sharing TTW with others!
Another Great Testimony

Yesterday I hit 500 days in a row for reading my Bible. And that whole streak has been done by using Through The Word.
My name is JD and I’m on the pastoral team at our church in Leduc, Alberta. When Covid shut down our church and small groups, I made the decision to start a daily Bible study for men using the YouVersion app. I found TTW in the “plans” section and asked a bunch of guys to commit to daily devotions for a period of time. That period of time has never ended. Once we crushed every TTW plan available on YouVersion, we switched to the app to listen/read and started a WhatsApp chat where we share our thoughts every day. It’s become so much more than personal insights. Over the last 500 days we have prayed for and seen miracles, had huge lightbulb moments regarding faith and doctrine, and so much more.
Thank you, team, for all you do. One of the guys in my devotional group said “I have never read my Bible this faithfully in my whole life”. I actually have no plans to stop this group. 500 days strong, and we show no signs of slowing down. My ultimate goal would be to polish off every book of the Bible using TTW. I have grown in wisdom of the Bible and and faith in tough seasons, and you guys have played a formative part in that.
You’ve also helped reshape my preaching and passion for the Word. This past week I preached on Psalm 103 (using some of Ps Sandy’s insights from the app) and apparently it was one of the strongest messages I’ve preached. I was inspired listening to your “Bible Teacher’s Podcast” to really let the Word of God do the preaching more than my own thoughts/insights. Wow it made a difference.
Thank you Pastors Kris, Peyton, Jonathan, and everyone else who has contributed to this ministry. TTW has been an anchor in this stormy season. Praise God for what you do and the way it is helping others.
God Bless You All!
