7 days: The Perfect Mid-Year Challenge

2018 Mid-Year Challenge

If you’ve ever had a Perfect Week, then you know how great it can feel to connect with God in His Word each day. Maybe you’ve tried this for more than a week — maybe a month, or even all year!

It’s good to think big, because God’s plan for you is big. But at this point in the year, it’s easy to get off track, especially after a broken Streak.

That’s why we created the Mid-Year Challenge – to help you renew your Bible reading habit, one day at a time, doing the simple Plans you love.

Take the 7-day challenge and begin seeing longer Streaks and even more Perfect Weeks.

Good Gifts from a Heavenly Father

Every good gift…

Think back on the men who made a positive impact in your life. Maybe they helped you, sharing wisdom or kindness right when you needed it. Who comes to mind? A dad, a mentor, a father figure?

Today, let those men know how much they mean to you with an encouraging word from Scripture. Text them a verse, or create a Verse Image just for them in your Bible App.


…from the Father above.

The Bible is filled with powerful words that describe the goodness of God’s character: present, gracious, loving, unchanging, full of compassion and mercy…to name just a few! Who could you encourage today with a word from God? Maybe it’s a friend or a loved one. Maybe it’s you.

Any one of these Plans can help you begin seeing more of God’s heart and connecting with Him. Even better: Start a Plan with Friends, and invite others to join you!
