Family Bible Week 2017 Share Your Story

Tell us your family’s YouVersion story.

…I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes…


Today, for the third day of Family Bible Week, please share your YouVersion stories with us. How does your family use the Bible App? What has the Bible App for Kids meant to the children in your life?

We’d love to hear from you about how the Bible App and/or the Bible App for Kids have helped transform your family.

You’re welcome to include pictures with your story. Or, if you’d like to make a short video to tell us your family’s YouVersion story, we’d love to see it.1

A Few Stories…

“This is how we use the YouVersion Bible App: every morning, I start by reading and reflecting on the Verse of the Day. Then my wife and I read a chapter of Scripture before we pray or we read one of the Plans together. It helps us in our morning discussions on the glory of our Lord and things we pray about. It also helps us in starting our day focused on Him.”

“I have been a Christian for 35 years. I have always wanted to read the Bible through in a year but always quit around April. I started the One-Year Chronological Bible last fall. I have given myself freedom to not be militant with it and have had more success. I am very grateful for this tool that allows me to be in God’s Word on a daily basis (getting ready for work, in the car, sitting on my back porch —wherever!). I am thankful for the example it sets for my young adult children.”

“Both of our children are adopted. Our daughter Isabella is from Russia and was adopted at the age of 1. She is now 8 years old. Our son Alexander is from Haiti and was adopted at the age of 3. He is now 5 years old. As Alexander learned a new language and adjusted to being in a new family, we used the YouVersion Bible App for Kids to teach him all of the great Bible stories and about Jesus. He loved it when he first came home, and he still loves it today. He learned so much about Jesus through using it. Also, both of my children were excited to read the Bible because of the Bible App for Kids.”

“We have five children still at home, four that home school. We chose to do a group read through the Bible, taking one book at a time, jumping wherever the Lord led us. It was awesome! It took us fifteen months to complete. The Bible App was an instrumental tool that helped us all follow along as each person read aloud. We were able to read out of the same version (NIV). My children’s reading proficiency and speed increased substantially! My second grader went from being a struggling reader to now reading 120 words per minute. I credit this all to reading God’s word. Put His word first and watch everything else fall into place.”
