21-Day Challenge Starts in 2 Days!

21-Day Challenge

Just three weeks of consistent behavior can carry you well on your way to a new habit. That’s why we created the annual 21-Day Challenge: to help you engage with the Bible every day. Start a new Plan now… and start each day in this new season with a fresh perspective.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Beginning February 1, complete at least one day of one Plan, every day for 21 days.

You don’t have to do just one Plan that’s 21 days (or longer). You can do a series of shorter Plans, one after another.1 Just make sure you complete at least one day of at least one Plan for every one of the 21 days!

2019 21-Day Challenge Badge

At the end of the Challenge, if you completed all 21 days, you’ll receive a special 2019 21-Day Challenge badge in your Bible App profile. But most importantly:

You’ll have a new daily Bible habit!

1 Official Rules available on our blog.

Now, let’s get you ready for the Challenge.

The 21-Day Challenge begins in just two days. We recommend you start browsing now for the Plans you’ll want to do during the Challenge. (We’ve included a few suggestions below.) When you find a Plan you think you’d enjoy, open it and tap Save for Later. Or, even better…

Tap Start, select With Friends, set the start date for February 1, and invite some friends to join you!

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!

Rev. Dr. Bernice A. King: Cultivating a Heart of Mercy

You probably know Rev. Dr. Bernice A. King as the daughter of Coretta Scott King and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. You may also recognize her as an international orator and speaker, from appearances on CNN and BET, or from magazines such as People and Ebony. Today, Bernice’s work at The King Center and other organizations is transforming future generations to Think, Act, Live, and Lead by the Kingian Nonviolence principles modeled by her parents.

Cultivating a Heart of Mercy

is an all-new, 6-day Bible Plan, featuring exclusive video content from the Hard Questions, Heart Answers author.

His Word Does Not Return Void: A Conversation with Rev. Dr. Bernice A. King

In this YouVersion exclusive video, Rev. Dr. Bernice A. King shares how the power of God’s Word shaped her her life growing up as the daughter of Martin Luther King, Jr., and how we can tap into that same power today, in order to practice true justice towards others: by walking in mercy and humility.

When you start practicing in this vein — doing justice, and loving mercy — it invites God into the equation and gives Him room to operate.
