Are You Up For a Challenge?
This month, well actually starting next Monday June 17th – I am launching a brand NEW – FREE Monthly 5-Day Challenge.
It’s Called the “Dare to ….” Challenge
I have created a year of monthly challenges that will help us build deeper relationship with God and each other. We will be able to connect, be authentic and build an authentic online engaging community. The challenge will occur the 3rd Week of every month. There is no set time to comment on each days post, just sometime during that day, just follow the instructions and respond to the prompt in the comments under each days post on Facebook.
That’s right, the monthly challenge will primarily take place on the Dare2Hear Facebook Page.
However, if there is enough interest, I am also considering having the “Dare to…” Challenge on Instagram!

What is the Dare to…” 5-Day Challenge?
Through this 5-day once a month challenge we will first, discover how to take practical steps in our relationship with God to have a real, deep and more intimate relationship with Him. Secondly, we will begin to build authentic community online with one another. Let’s purpose to keep God at the front of our day to day living and not let Him be a “go to God” who is available in case of emergencies.
Each Month we will have a different challenge. These challenges will range from reading Scripture, praying, hearing from God, dreaming with God, believing, having hope and much more. Even though there is a different challenge topic every month – each of the 5 days will be the same with the way we interact. They are:
Day 1 Initiate
Ready… Set… Go …. The challenge begins as you initiate and begin to do the assigned activity. Specifics instructions for what you will need to do to kick off the challenge will be posted with the day one graphic.
Once you have done the activity, you will come back and let us know in the comments under the Day One graphic.
Day 2 Respond
Tell us what God showed you. We want to know: What encouragement did God give you? What new revelation did He impart to you?
Share with us in the comments section on Facebook under the day two graphic what you received from initiating the activity from day one. Then begin to interact with each other and comment on people’s comments.
Day 3 Engage
Ask God who you can specifically share this encouragement or revelation with. Specifically ask for a name of someone you know or pray and ask God to give you a divine appointment with someone you do not know. Then share the encouragement or revelation with them.
Once you have prayed and asked God who you are to share the encouragement and revelation with, come back and let us know in the comments under the Day three graphic. We want to be praying for you as your step out to engage with others.
Day 4 Testify
Testify Thursday….Share your stories and testimonies of what happened when you stepped out on Day 3 and shared what God gave you from Day 2. You will share your Thursday testimony in the comments section under the day four graphic.
Testimonies increase our faith to believe things are possible for us. If God did it for someone esle, He will do it for you!
Day 5 Integrate
Share how you can integrate this practice in your day to day life. Be bold and allow God to leads you towards living a lifestyle of encouragement

YouVersion 7-Day Devotional
I am blessed and honored to have a 7-day devotional on the YouVersion Bible App. YAY!!! It is a great way to kick start the 7- days before my on-line Bible Study starts next week. I would be so blessed if you would check it out and share it with your friends. You can find it here: Be The Gift Someone Needs Today!
Have you had the opportunity to read my new book “The Gift of Prophetic Encouragement: Hearing the Words of God for others.” ? This book is about learning to hear the voice of God in our own life so we can respond to those God bumps and little nudges He gives us on a daily basis. God is calling us to be agents of encouragement and to be the gift the worlds needs today.
We live in a time, where those around us are in desperate need of a real encounter with Jesus and in need of encouragement. We are called to encourage one another daily (Hebrews 3:13), and to build each other up (1 Thessalonians 5:11). My book will teach you how to step out and do just that.
To order your copy today: You can find it at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, OR your favorite online retailer, Plus, newly added, you can now get a signed copy from me. Click Here to order yours today!
We all have the opportunity to #BeTheGift of encouragement others need today.
Do you wonder if God still speaks today? Do you wonder if He would ever speak to you personally? Do you long to hear the voice of God in your life?
Have your read other books on hearing from God, but long for hands on practical application? or are you looking for ways to move you forward hearing from God?
If you answered YES to any of those questions, then I have exactly what you need. I now have an online e-course designed to equip you in understanding that God still speaks today, and He longs to speak directly to you, through His word, and others. He longs to encourage you, strengthen you and comfort you. The training on this site, is fully based on Scripture, and taken from my training manual Releasing God’s heart through Hearing His Voice.
God is speaking, Can you Hear Him?
d2htrainging.com membership site is open, I invite you to check it out today, and develop a deeper relationship with the Lord, as you learn to hear Him speak to your heart.

Debbie, This looks like a great challenge. Thank you. Maree
Thanks Maree – we are half way through this months challenge and it seems to be going great 🙂
What a great way to keep us mindful and looking for God’s active presence in our lives! I know for myself, just keeping the practice of daily gratitude has opened my eyes to this more, and I find myself ‘tuned in’ to anticipate what God has for me. Great challenge, Debbie! I’m sharing:)
Thanks for sharing Crystal! It’s great when we know what we need to do to keep ourselves in tune to God and moving forward. I appreciate you being here and sharing! Blessings. 🙂
