ABOUT THE APP
We created this app because we needed it, we think you might need it too. In a world obsessed with doing, we are discovering the ancient art of being.
Life for too many is a struggle. So often we adopt a lifestyle that is frantic and busy and we then long for the next day off, the next vacation or to get beyond the next deadline. We so easily find ourselves living simply FOR rest. Yet for those who know God, life can and should be lived FROM rest!
This app is designed to help you find and maintain a place of peace. It is from this place that we actually become so much more productive. When we learn to “let go and let God” life actually becomes so much more joyful and fruitful.
Our prayer is that this app will help you find the rhythm of rest that God always intended you to have. As you rest, as you simply abide in Him, may you know the beauty of His peace.

“Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace.”
John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892)

Ratings and Reviews
Having been recommended mindfulness as part of a CBT course, I always found the frame of reference at odds with my Christian faith. I recognized, however, that many of the principles had much in common with Christian meditation. This app really helped me at a time when I desperately needed it. I got myself some Bluetooth headphones, found a quiet place to lie down and drank it in! The readings are done by different people - I especially enjoyed those from a lady known as ‘Kara’ - what a beautiful and soothing voice. Highly recommended.
Recommending to friends and family
I’m a therapy student in my 2nd year of uni and I truly love LiveFromRest, it helps me to relax and rest. As an extrovert who loves being constantly with people, it is important that I be still, know, and rest. You don’t need to be a Christian to use this app, I’ve been recommending this app to my class at uni, and my little sister who struggles with anxiety. It’s so important to get into the rhythms of rest and quiet, try this app, I would definitely recommend 😊
I have tried a few different Christian meditation apps but they are all American. Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed using them but this app is refreshingly different as it is British. The scriptures are just right and the music is calming. You really get a sense of God's presence and His peace when meditating. I really love this app and look forward to hearing meditations as and when they are added. £9.99 for a whole year is a great price too.
