Good advice, Eileen. I am in central time zone as well. I usually do my memorization in the morning (CST), but sometimes I cannot due to my busy schedule. To avoid losing my streak, I set an alarm for every day that goes off at 2 PM as a reminder for me to add a new verse. I have been caught by the calendar as well, so as a sanity check, I go to the website and confirm that it shows one new verse at the top.

For what it’s worth, once I figured out the “time zone” of the UTC calendar, that’s the time when I add a new verse.

For example, the new ‘day’ starts in the central time zone at 6pm during daylight saving time, but at 7 pm standard time. So I just have a calendar reminder set for 7 pm year round to remind me it’s time to learn a new verse. Because once in a while I’ve “goofed” and learned a new verse an hour ahead of time, realized that I should have waited, then had to add a second verse for the day in order to keep my learning streak going.

So no matter what time zone you are actually in, just go to a web browser and type in 12 am GMT to (whatever your time zone is) and it will give you the time when the new ‘day’ starts for learnscripture.net in the GMT time zone for your time zone. And again, if you’re finding this information out during daylight saving time, just add an hour to your time so you’ll know when the new day starts for standard time. So then you can start the same time year round.

Hope this helps you.

And even if you do accidentally break your streak, this group is here for you, because your desire is to be consistent, and God knows your heart. The intent is to encourage you in your journey in learning God’s word.

That's a bummer, Janet. We're still very proud of you and what you've accomplished thus far! The place just wouldn't be the same without you.

Yes that's good advice! You might be able to restore your streak that way...
