Get ready for YouVersion’s 2019 21-Day Challenge!

Man reading Bible on phone

We started our annual 21-Day Challenge to help people start building a daily habit of connecting with God’s Word. Maybe you’ve never considered trying to start that habit. Or maybe you started off strong at the beginning of the year… and you’ve already started to taper off.

No matter where you stand, the 21-Day Challenge is your chance to get in on the fun, or back on track. And, we’re sharing the Challenge early this year, to give you time to select the Plans you want to do and to invite friends to join you!


Official Rules

The 21-Day Challenge begins February 1, 2019 and runs through February 21, 2019.

To be eligible to earn your special 2019 21-Day Challenge Badge, you must complete at least one day’s reading (or listening) of at least one Plan, every day for 21 days.

If you’ve already started a Plan before February 1, that’s fine. Just keep going, and don’t miss any days.

You don’t have to do a Plan that lasts 21 days. You can do Plans of any length, even if they’re longer or shorter than 21 days. Simply make sure that you complete at least one day of at least one Plan for every one of the 21 days.

Each time you complete a day, make sure that all of that day’s selections are checked as completed:

Make sure everything is checked

If you complete all 21 days (without missing any days), you will receive our special 2019 21-Day Challenge Badge in your Bible App profile:

2019 21-Day Challenge Badge

To view your Badges: In the Bible App,
go to your profile and select Badges.


Here’s what you should do now.

If this is your first challenge, we recommend you start with a shorter Plan, then just keep completing one short Plan after another. Take it one day at a time and, as your habit grows, gradually ease into longer and longer Plans.

Tap the button below to find the Plans you want to do for the challenge. You can tap Save for Later on any Plans you like, then start one on February 1, the first day of the challenge (or even before). Or, may we also suggest:

Plans are better with friends! On whichever Plan you want to do first, tap Start Plan, select With Friends, set the start date for February 1, then invite a friend (or 2 or 5). (This will give your friends a heads-up before it starts.)

Let’s do this!
