“God’s Good News” is the latest story to arrive in the Bible App for Kids. But this story is special, unlike anything we’ve offered before. “God’s Good News” draws scenes from stories we’ve already launched, and adds a brand-new scene. The story of “God’s Good News” shows kids that when we put all of the pieces together, we can see the bigger picture of what God is telling us through the Bible:

that God loves us, and that through His Son Jesus,
we can know Him and become part of His story, too

Get the Verse of the Day, Every Day

People ask us all the time if the Bible App can send them the Verse of the Day, so they’ll never miss one. And now it can! If you’re new to the Bible App, the Verse of the Day is a select daily passage intended to encourage you, refresh your perspective, and help you focus your thoughts on God.

Available now on iOS (newest 5.1.1 release), this handy feature is also coming soon to the Bible App for Android and to bible.com. Maybe you like thinking about the Bible first thing when you wake up. Or meditating on it as a midday reminder. Or perhaps at bedtime, so you can think about it as you’re drifting to sleep. Whatever your preference, just tell the Bible App when and how you want your Verse of the Day delivered…and we’ll do the rest!

Here’s how you can get the Verse of the Day, every day:

Sermon on the Mount added to the Bible App for Kids as “The King and the Kingdom”

King and Kingdom

Our latest addition brings the Sermon on the Mount to the Bible App for Kids as “The King and the Kingdom.” Based on Matthew 5-7, the story teaches kids about Jesus’ most famous sermon as He calls His followers to a new and different way of living.

King and Kingdom

Every story in the app introduces kids to biblical concepts in a way they can understand and remember. And of course we didn’t forget about the fun! The colorful animation features lots of great moments, like joining the crowd on the hillside to hear Jesus preach, or seeing the difference between the house built on rock and the one built on sand.

To get “The King and the Kingdom”, simply tap its icon in the app to download it.

TIP: Downloading stories over a fast Wi-Fi connection is pretty quick, but you might want to download them before you share them with your kids so they can dive right in.

Talking about your Half-Year Resolution is one more way the YouVersion community can bring the Bible into everyday conversation, right where it belongs.


Tip: Friends = Accountability

If you’ve been using Bible App 5 with friends, you’ve seen how easy it is to share your time in the Bible. When you make a note, create a bookmark, or just check off your reading each day, your friends can see what you’re up to and add their thoughts. Consider asking a friend to help you stay accountable for your daily reading, and let the app help you stay in touch as you do. (Make sure your Plan is visible to friends.)

Fresh Starts: Not Just for New Year’s

In a few days, 2014 will be half over. That means the second half of 2014 is just beginning! You don’t have to wait until January to begin or re-begin a daily practice of spending time in the Bible.

Kick off Your Half-Year Resolution on July 1

1. Pick a Bible Plan
Plans come in all shapes and sizes—more than 800 options from topical to devotional, and a few days to a few months in length. Search for one you’re really interested in and make sure it’s a goal you think you can achieve. How about a short Plan to get things rolling? Or, have you ever tried a video Plan? Find your Plan and start on July 1.

2. Put the App to Work for You
You’ll find lots of features to help you stick with your goal: Set a reminder in the app to help you stay on track. Listen to your daily selections with an audio Bible. And don’t be shy about using the “Catch Me Up” button if you fall behind!

3. Include Your Friends
People are more successful starting new habits with the support of friends. Make sure you’ve added your friends in Bible App 5 and start sharing what you’re bookmarking, highlighting, and noting each day. You can even do the same Plan together.
