Resources & Tools
This page contains three categories of resources. Of course you'll find recommendations for reading and studying the Bible. You'll also find the resources and tools I use for running my blog and business. Finally, if you're interested in my corporate coaching (messaging or book writing), you'll find that here as well.
This is the easiest, most popular site for looking up anything in the Bible. The site contains almost any translation in almost any language you can think of. One of my favorite features is the ability to compare multiple translations side-by-side on the one screen. Search by Passage, Keyword, or Topic. There’s also an app for your mobile device.
The name says it all. If you want to find an online resource for Bible study, you’re likely to find it here. Search the Bible. Read a commentary (or several). Check out what other people are taking notes on. You can even watch some videos of people unpacking various topics and sections of Scripture. Be warned: You could spend a lot of time here!
This site is unbelievably robust! Whether you want a parallel Bible, commentary, Bible atlas, word study dictionary, or a Greek/Hebrew interlinear Bible (with each word clickable!), this is the site for you. That makes it a little cumbersome to navigate, but overall, it is an amazing site! Did I mention that it’s free and there is a dedicated mobile site?
YouVersion Bible App
This is both an online Bible and phone/tablet app. There are reading plans, a mobile app, social integration, and the ability to take notes and synchronize across all of your devices. Very cool.
This is another place to do online studying. It has many different study resources (encyclopedias, dictionaries, commentaries, etc.). One neat resource is an interlinear Bible where you can click on a word for an instant word study. This site also includes devotions, humor, and various Christian articles, sermons, and reviews.
FaithLife Study Bible
This was developed by Logos (see below). It combines and online study Bible with the “social” aspect of the online community. You don’t have to use the social functionality, but that’s the part they’re pushing. You can create your own private groups so you can share thoughts and notes with other people in your group.
Blue Letter Bible
This is another in-depth study site. While it doesn’t have multiple translations, it does a terrific job of laying out many study tools that apply to whatever verse you are looking at. That way, a wealth of information about exactly what you’re studying is one click away.
Logos Bible Software
This software is amazing (although moderately expensive). If you are a pastor, Bible teacher, author, or just plan on doing a lot of in-depth Bible study, I haven’t found anything better. Your can start with a basic package and add thousands of books to your library. It is integrated with an online Bible and an app. For me…it is indispensable!
Blogging & Business
DISCLAIMER: Most links you'll find in this section (and the next) are affiliate links. This means if you click the link and purchase something, the company will give me a commission for recommending them. That said, you can trust that anything you find on this page is something I have tried, use, and believe in. You will also never pay more using one of my links than you would be going to the site directly. In fact, many times you'll pay less.
Kajabi is the #1 all-in-one platform for web hosting, email, marketing, courses, etc. When I switched to Kajabi (which is what this site is built on), I was able to get rid of my web host, my site builder, my email service, and my online course software. It has simplified my life - and provided a better experience for you! Not only that, but their customer service is out-of-this world! I couldn't possibly recommend them more highly!
This is the one of the two sites I use to create all of the images you see on this site. Photo editing, infographics, eBook covers, social media graphics. You name it, you can create it with PicMonkey.
This is the other site I use to create all of the images you see on this site. I love them both, but if you're looking to create more details downloads, eBooks, and infographics, you will be happier with Canva.
Coaching & Writing
This is my company where I coach C-level leaders, entrepreneurs, authors, pastors, and sales teams in messaging, writing, running better teams, etc.
This is the all-in-one DESIGN site for churches. Design templates. Sermon outlines. PowerPoint background. Countdown timers. Social Media graphics. T-shirt designer. Logo creator. Live streaming training.
