Happy Half Year! New Plans for a Fresh Start

January is months away, but we can create a fresh start right now. Today, the YouVersion community is making and sharing Half-Year Resolutions for spending time in the Bible. Wondering where to start? Check out this month’s Featured Plans!

No Other Name

Hillsong Worship, 7 Days
Bring a spirit of bold worship to your daily time in the Bible. Aligned with their new album, Hillsong Worship created this Plan exclusively for The Overflow Devo on YouVersion. A great choice if you’ve never tried a video Plan!

12 Leadership Ideas To Do With Your Kids

Dr. Tim Elmore, 12 days
Introduce leadership principles to your kids with creative ideas grounded in Scripture. This Plan offers simple, yet clever, teachable moments: go people watching at the mall, hide money where you’ve asked your kids to clean, or visit sick kids in the hospital. Perfect for parents of tweens-teens

When You’re Hoping For a Miracle

Rick Warren, 17 Days
When we come up empty, need a fresh start, and can’t find our way, hope is our lifeline. Pastor Rick Warren shares his unique perspective about hope and the miracles God stands ready to do in our lives.

What’s Your Half-Year Resolution?

Once you decide on your goal, you can inspire others to make a fresh start too! Use the hashtag #HalfYearResolution on Facebook and Twitter to share what you’re beginning today. Talking about your Half-Year Resolution is one more way the YouVersion community can bring the Bible into everyday conversation, right where it belongs.


Tip: Friends = Accountability

If you’ve been using Bible App 5 with friends, you’ve seen how easy it is to share your time in the Bible. When you make a note, create a bookmark, or just check off your reading each day, your friends can see what you’re up to and add their thoughts. Consider asking a friend to help you stay accountable for your daily reading, and let the app help you stay in touch as you do. (Make sure your Plan is visible to friends.)
