Maybe you’ve been losing traction on some of the healthy habits you started at New Year’s. Or maybe your Bible habit is on track, but you want to go deeper as Easter approaches. Whatever season you’re in, we have Bible Plans that can help.
Any of these Plans will help you prepare your heart to celebrate Christ’s Resurrection on April 1. Just take it one day at a time, and you’ll be making the Bible an intentional part of your day, every day.
Christians all over the world observe the forty days leading up to our remembrance of Jesus’s resurrection as a time to reflect, repent, and prepare their hearts to celebrate new life. This year, our special Lent and Easter category features more Plans than ever before, each one designed to help you connect daily with God’s Word, and to meditate on what it means in your life.

If you’re like most people who download the Bible App, you installed it because you believe that reading God’s Word is important, and you intend to read it more. One of the best ways we’ve found to start a daily Bible practice is to complete one short Plan after another in the Bible App.
That’s what our annual 21-Day Challenge is all about: helping you start building a daily habit of connecting with God’s Word.
Spread the Word.
Invite your friends to join you in the Bible App for this year’s 21-Day Challenge! And, when you share about it on social media, be sure you include the hashtag #BibleFor21.
The 21-Day Challenge begins, February 1, 2018, and runs through February 21, 2018.
To be eligible for a badge and for the prize drawing, you must complete at least one day’s reading (or listening) of at least one Plan, every day for 21 days.
If you already started a Plan before February 1, just keep going, and do not miss any days.
You do not 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 that you complete a day, make sure that all of that day’s selections are checked as completed.
If you complete all 21 days (without missing any days), you will receive a 2018 21-Day Challenge badge in your Bible App profile:
To view your Badges: In the Bible App, go to your profile and select Badges.
Out of everyone who completes all 21 days (without missing any days), we will randomly select one grand prize winner.1
The grand prize will include fun YouVersion items like a T-shirt, stickers, mug—and even a brand-new Google Home Mini!
1 Prizes are subject to change or substitution based on availability. Winners will be contacted with details about how to receive their prizes. Some items not available for shipping internationally.
Now, let’s get you started.
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.
If you haven’t already selected your first Plan for the Challenge, getting started is easy: just tap the button below to start looking for a Plan you like. Then, whichever Plan you choose to start, consider inviting a friend (or several) to join you!
