Welcome to WEEK FOUR of the STRONG Challenge: CONNECT.

This week, let’s get stronger by connecting with people and God (for those looking to strengthen their spiritual lives).

Did you know that on average we receive over 6,000 messages a day? Let that sink in...

These constant beeps, dings, buzzes and tweets are demanding our attention and severely hurting our health. And worse, they are pulling us away from the things that truly matter the most in our short lives. This week, you will be challenged go to deeper mentally and spiritually in the Challenge. You’ve got this and we believe in you, because you are STRONG.

There has never been a better week in the Challenge to connect with your Accountabilibuddy! Call them. Ask how they are doing and offer some encouragement and strong cheerleader spirit! And join the STRONG Challenge Facebook Group to share your moments of connection with your new friends, if you haven’t already done so. Challenge yourself to make the extra effort to connect. Because when we connect, we are STRONG.

Watch this week's video for guidance:
