Bible Plans Finding Real Happiness

How do you like to start your day? Some like to take a morning walk, others enjoy their routine cup of coffee. The best way to start it off in my opinion, is through daily devotion with Christ. Bible plans are a great way to constantly change things up. YouVersion is a free Bible app — for IOS and Android — that features some amazing plans. The app may be downloaded on your phone, tablet, and/or computer. It’s ad-free and such a simple way to bring God’s Word into your daily life. I recommend that you get started with these plans.

During the 14 days of reading, Timothy Keller — a renowned pastor and New York Times bestselling author — offers daily inspiration and wisdom from the book of Psalms.
