100% Life Changing...if you use it.

Yes, life is hectic. Yes, I am remarkably distracted, as are most in this digital age. I have failed to hear the voice of God for what has felt like...years. Yet, this app brings me home. The daily (multiple times per day) exercise has helped heal my union with God. There has yet to be a time, after running through a pause, that I don’t leave feeling full and whole. My daughters (ages 6 & 3) have watched as I reconnect with God. They love it, ask for it even. It’s helped me communicate with them what union with God looks like.’s helped heal my marriage as I invite my wife into intimacy with Jesus and I’ve watched as her heart softens. Every believer needs the simplicity of this exercise. Sometimes we just need someone to gently bring us back into communion with the living God. Give it a try. Let your heart go. It can help transform you, fill you, focus you, if you’ll let it.

Good app, needs more choices

I really like this app. You could say that I’ve been a “pause app evangelist” since I’ve been talking to so many people about it. Overall it is a fantastic tool to reconnect with Jesus throughout the day or week. My only dislike is the lack of options. Yes, you can choose 1, 3, 5, or 10 mins to meditate, but it would be nice ( & helpful) to have a few different prompts to go through instead of the same one over and over. I also would appreciate having more music options. The music definitely helps center me and keep me focused, but sometimes it just doesn’t jive with what I’m mediating on. A few more options would really make this a great app instead of just a good one.

Truly Transformative and refreshing

What an amazing gift this app has been to my spiritual life. I had no idea I was pushing God out of my life by being too busy to spend time with Him. This practice of the 1, 3, 5, and 10 minute pauses has given God room to come back into me. I feel his presence when I take time to listen.

I’ve used the app while at work between meetings. I’ve used it while taking a walk, while sharing time with my young children, with a co-worker friend that was grieving because of the loss of her friends husband. It brings the presence of God.

Thanks to John and the Ransomed Heart ministry for creating this app and living it. We pray for you, for your families to be safe and preserved and prospered!
