America is facing a moral and ethical crisis. The Bible has God’s answers for life’s questions. Let’s recommit ourselves to personal, daily engagement with the Bible. God wants you to be confident of his love, his ideals … and his priorities for your life.

Explore important biblical truths and discover practical ways you can apply God’s Word each day.
Families can be the source of our greatest joy -- and our deepest grief. As we journey alongside loved ones, we are given the tremendous gift of intimately sharing our lives with others. At the same time, we are confronted with life’s many challenges -- dealing with the consequences of our decisions, caring for those who are sick, facing relational conflicts, and many others. As we engage with Scripture, we can discover God in these daily challenges. We are given a powerful framework to care for others, to deepen ourselves, and to maintain hope.
Reading the Bible is one of the best ways to learn about God and His desire to have a relationship with you. You can start now by downloading “A Year with the Bible,” a guide that will walk you through daily passages, help you engage with God’s Word and deepen your walk of faith. When you download the guide, you will also be able to access Bible study resources, memorization apps and search tools that will help expand and deepen your Scripture journey.
The Bible has a lot to say about our finances, yet many people leave God out of their finances, thinking that he has nothing to say on the topic. That couldn’t be further from the truth! The Bible includes over 2,000 verses that discuss spending, saving, earning, giving, borrowing, budgeting and investing. Jesus spoke more about money than almost any other subject. As you carefully consider the passages in this helpful study, take time to reflect on what the Lord wants you to know about money.
We think of “heart” as the physical organ that circulates our blood and keeps us alive and healthy. We also refer to our hearts as a place of deep emotion. Scripture writers use the word “heart” to encapsulate both of these meanings. Because our hearts are connected to every part of who we are, taking care of our hearts is critical. As we care for our whole selves, we come to know God in the center of our being. Scripture gives us a helpful framework for taking care of all the aspects of who we are. Here are four Bible studies to engage your heart and mind.
This Scripture-based resource can be used individually or with families, friends and church communities. Allow the reflection, prayer, activities and meditation to set your focus on God’s work in your heart and within your shared life with others. There are family readings and activities for parents, teens, children … everyone! There is even a mealtime event you can use to celebrate God’s goodness with your church or parish friends.
