If you’re like most people who download the Bible App, you installed it because you believe that reading the Bible is important, and you intend to read it more. One of the best ways we’ve found to start a daily discipline 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.
Also, you could win prizes…
To inspire you, between February 1 and February 21, we’ll be holding drawings where we’ll give away YouVersion T-shirts, stickers, drinkware, and even 7-inch Amazon Fire tablets!1 To be eligible for a drawing, just share a link to the Plan you’re reading that day on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, using the hashtag #BibleFor21. We’ll be searching for #BibleFor21 to build our list of entries each day, so make sure you mark your post “Public” so we can see it. (See the Official Rules below.)
…and maybe even the Grand Prize!
If you complete the day’s selections from at least one Bible Plan each day from February 1 to February 21, you’ll be entered in a special drawing for our grand prize: one of everything — one T-shirt, one sticker pack, one mug, AND an Amazon Fire tablet! (Plus whatever other fun things we can find that will fit in your shipping box.)
And, regardless of whether you win a prize, everyone who completes all 21 days will earn our special, commemorative 2017 21-Day Challenge Badge on their YouVersion profile:

Spread the Word.
We’ll be giving away prizes each week all throughout the 21-Day Challenge. Tell your friends, and invite them to join you in the Bible App!
📲 Get the Bible App
Make sure you have the Bible App installed on a device (or devices), or on the web at Bible.com, that you will be able to use every day from February 1 to February 21.
✔ Sign Up for a Free Account
If you haven’t already, create your own free YouVersion account (or sign in with Facebook or Google).
📑 Start a Bible Plan
Sign up for a Bible Plan — or for several. We recommend that you browse through Plans that interest you and use Save for Later to collect the ones you want to use for the 21-Day Challenge.
Note: You don’t have to begin a new Plan on February 1. If you already started a Plan before February 1 — or more than one — that’s great! Just keep going, and don’t miss any days. (Keep reading for more.)
🗓 Read Each Day
At least once a day, every day from February 1 to February 21, go to your Plans > My Plans and complete the daily selection for at least one of the Plans you’re subscribed to.
IMPORTANT! Each day when you complete your selections, make sure they get checked off. (More on this in a moment.)
👏🏽 Share Your Progress, Be Entered to Win Prizes
After you complete a day’s reading, inside the Bible App, go to that Plan’s Info page ( > Plan Info), tap the share icon ( or ) and share your Plan to Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, and include the hashtag #BibleFor21. Sharing is not necessary to earn your Badge, but it is required to be entered to win one of many prizes we’ll be giving away.
IMPORTANT! When you post on social media, we cannot see posts that are “Friends,” “Private,” or “Only Me.” Make sure that you mark your social media post as “Public” — AND that you include #BibleFor21 — or we won’t be able to see your entry.
1Prizes include YouVersion-branded items such as a T-shirt, stickers, drinkware, tablets, and more. Prizes are subject to change or substitution based on availability. Winners will be contacted with details about how to receive their prizes. Because of some limitations with international shipping, not all items will be available to ship to all countries.
🏅 Earn a Badge!
All users who complete the 21-Day Challenge — reading the day’s selections from at least one Bible Plan each day for all 21 days (February 1 to February 21) — will receive their special commemorative badge in the Bible App. (No Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram posts required.)
IMPORTANT! Badges will be automatically awarded based upon days checked off each day during the Challenge. This is why it is so important that you ensure that each day’s reading is ACTUALLY CHECKED OFF, EACH AND EVERY DAY of the Challenge. We cannot award badges to users who miss checking off any days DURING THE CHALLENGE.
Note: If you already started a Bible Plan before the 21-Day Challenge begins on February 1, that’s great! Just keep going, and make sure you complete at least one day, every day, between February 1 and February 21 — and that each day gets checked off.
Now let’s get you started.
If you haven’t signed up for your next Bible Plan yet, this year’s 21-Day Challenge is just one more great reason to start! With thousands of Plans to choose from, we know that you’ll discover several that you’ll enjoy.
