Journey #’s are Changing by One! (This Tuesday!)
Starting next week, you will notice a couple small changes to your journey numbers. That’s because we’re adding a new one! Well, technically we’re splitting one. So now there will be a new Journey #1, and a total of 19 Journeys instead of 18.
Here’s why: After much prayer and careful consideration, we decided that brand new listeners should start their Bible journey with the story of Jesus – before they get an overview of the whole Bible. To make that happen, we’re taking the guides for Mark and Colossians (which were part of Journey #2), and we’re using those to create a new Journey #1. After that, all the current journeys will simply be bumped by one: #1 will become #2, #2 will become #3, etc. The good news is – all of that change will happen automatically. For most of you, you’ll just see the number change. There may be some confusion for those of you currently in Journey #2 (Foundations) – because your journey will be split into two parts. That’s why we’re getting the word out in advance so you know it’s coming. More details coming soon!
Just Launched: The Bible Audio Guide Podcast
All the TTW Audio Guides that you love are now going onto a brand new podcast. We’re calling it: The Bible Audio Guide Podcast. For everyone who can’t access the TTW app, or for anyone who just loves the features on podcast apps, the podcast is available now. It has the same great Audio Guides that you find on TTW, and each season on the podcast will be one of our Journeys on the TTW app. Journey 1 is up now! It’s also a great way for us to give podcast fans a new Bible habit. Check it out here:
The Podcast Subscribe & Review Contest
So here’s how you can help us launch well – and win some cool TTW gear while you’re at it. We need two things to get our podcast more visible: subscriptions and reviews. With 35,000 daily listens, TTW is one of the top Christian podcasts… except for one thing: the podcast platforms don’t see those numbers. So to get us more visibility, we’re asking you to head over to your favorite podcast app to subscribe and review/rate us. Just use the links above to find the podcast. Then click the link below to complete the contest form. That’s it! We’ll pick a winner next month and send out some great TTW gear!
