Do people know the real you?

It is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. - ROMANS 10:10 - Verse Image

What do you want people to know about you?

It can be so tempting to curate our online presence to impress others: nice meals we’re enjoying, exotic places we’re visiting, popular people we’re spending time with. Those things are fine to share. But Jesus didn’t say He would use our accomplishments to draw people to Himself. He said that it would be our love (John 13:35).

This year, start making it a habit to regularly share His transforming love.

Start Small…

Texting a Bible verse or a Verse Image to a friend is easy. Need a daily reminder? Subscribe to Verse of the Day. You can even share content from devotionals: every Bible Plan has a Share button in the corner ( Share icon ).

…Then Build Your Habit.

Once you’ve shared a few times, set a goal to share at least one Bible verse or Bible Plan every day for a week. It won’t be long before your friends start telling you how much they appreciate your encouragement!

What does God want for your family?

Family

What’s God’s vision for your family?

Work, chores at home, social commitments… with so many demands on our time, sometimes it’s overwhelming thinking about how to lead our families spiritually. Here are some small ways you can start pursuing God together, in the natural rhythms of your family’s everyday life.

Start with you.

Single parenting, blended families, special needs children, praying for your kids: wherever you are, find wisdom and encouragement in this Plan collection on the Bible App.

Bible App for Kids Jesus

Little kids? Experience the big stories of the Bible, together.

Snuggle with your child and ask them to show you a Bible App for Kids story. (Ask them to show you how the app works, too.) Listen to what’s on your child’s mind.

Teenager

Older kids? Get on their level.

Start a Bible Plan on a topic you’d like to talk about with your kids. Pick “With Friends,” and invite them to join you in the Bible App. Discuss each day right in the app, group text style, or even irl (in real life).

Family

Something for everyone.

Find a Plan in the Bible App your whole family can do together. Set a regular time each day when one person can read from the devotional (like dinnertime), then talk about it together.

Bible Lens

See God in your life, together.

Take a picture with Bible Lens, or point it at a family photo you already have. Watch together as it finds verses that match your picture.

Whatever you choose, just remember…

You’re already leading your family spiritually. Each day, your children are learning what you value from the ways you spend your time. We can be intentional about the direction we lead our families… and engage them in the process.
