3 Apps to Help You Grow Your Faith
For the busy on-the-go woman, finding time to spend in the Word can be hard. I have learned that the easiest way for me to do this is to find ways to do it on my commute to and from work, or while I'm cooking, cleaning etc. I do this by using apps that allow me to read the Bible, listen to sermons, and memorize scriptures while on the go. Below are my top three favorite apps for strengthening my faith.

This is by far my favorite app on this list! I have been using this Bible App for about 5 years and it's the only one I'll probably ever use. The YouVersion App is your one stop shop for an in-app bible with 1,000+ versions and hundreds of bible study plans, which you can share with friends and do together. I also love that you can highlight scriptures and take notes, and it will save right to your account. This way you can see what you've been reading on multiple devices. The best feature for me is the scripture of the day notification. Unfortunately, it's not hard to get so busy that you forget to read your Bible. When they send you the scripture of the day, it's a reminder to take a second to read God's word.
The She Reads Truth app is pretty similar to the YouVersion one, but it was created primarily for women. This one also has an in-app bible with multiple versions, and it does give you the ability to highlight and take notes. She Reads Truth also offers bible study plans but they aren't free. I believe they range from $0.99 - $1.99, but you can unlock all of their plans if you pay $1.99 per month. One thing that I really like about the She Reads Truth app is that they have a community forum where you can discuss bible study plans and build other connections with Christian women.
Last, but certainly not least is the Abide app. This has been a recent favorite of mine. If you like guided meditation, and want it from a Christian perspective, this app is for you! The Abide app offers guided meditation for topics such as anger, anxiety, grief, and money. If you have any trouble falling asleep, they also have a really cool Sleep feature, where they tell you bedtime stories from the Bible. Some of the stories include when Jesus calmed the storm and the story of Ruth. You do have to buy a monthly or yearly subscription to be able to listen to the bedtime stories, but they are available for 14 days with your free trial.
Takeaway: The YouVersion and Abide apps are must haves for me, while the She Reads Truth is a really good option if you don't mind paying for the plans.
