Fresh Starts: Not Just for New Year’s

In a few days, 2014 will be half over. That means the second half of 2014 is just beginning! You don’t have to wait until January to begin or re-begin a daily practice of spending time in the Bible.

Kick off Your Half-Year Resolution on July 1

1. Pick a Bible Plan
Plans come in all shapes and sizes—more than 800 options from topical to devotional, and a few days to a few months in length. Search for one you’re really interested in and make sure it’s a goal you think you can achieve. How about a short Plan to get things rolling? Or, have you ever tried a video Plan? Find your Plan and start on July 1.

2. Put the App to Work for You
You’ll find lots of features to help you stick with your goal: Set a reminder in the app to help you stay on track. Listen to your daily selections with an audio Bible. And don’t be shy about using the “Catch Me Up” button if you fall behind!

3. Include Your Friends
People are more successful starting new habits with the support of friends. Make sure you’ve added your friends in Bible App 5 and start sharing what you’re bookmarking, highlighting, and noting each day. You can even do the same Plan together.

4. Let’s do this together!
Use the hashtag #HalfYearResolution on Facebook and Twitter to share what you’re starting on July 1. It would be great to see the YouVersion community inspiring people all over the world toward a new beginning!
