This app has transformed me

Last year, my daughter experienced something in school that produced a “come to Jesus” moment in my life. I’ve been a Christian for the better part of 20 years, but only in the last year have I had fire and passion for it. This app has singularly helped me to realize so many things I hadn’t grasped, hadn’t understood, hadn’t known. I feel after reading it and hearing Nicky’s comments (and Pippa’s) that there is so much more than what appears on the surface. When I first was a “Christian,” believing in God was all it was. I put the quotes there because I have since learned the God is only part of the Christian equation. YEARS later, I started to learn the importance and relevance of Jesus and his death. Since starting this app, I feel I have a balanced education on the importance of the Trinity, a starting knowledge of basic theology, and a hunger for more. I have started reading books on theology I checked out through the library. I read Christian fiction books. I started a prayer journal. I talk to God (sometimes out loud while doing the dishes or the laundry). I was once ashamed that I was “just a stay at home mom.” Now I know that the purpose for my job is to disciple my children and raise the next generation for Christ. It is an amazing turnaround to go through. This app has fed the fire that God gave to me through a horrible situation. I’m so grateful for all of it.

Content is great but disappointed with the new changes.

This is my 3rd year following the content in this app. It is a great way to read through the Word with insights and explanations that make it so meaningful. Love it!
Unfortunately very disappointed in the changes made for 2021.
There is no need to show the full Bible texts as so many are using their own Bible for the readings. The previous way - click on the text to open to it was much better. Now there is So much to scroll back and forth through if you have your own Bible or want to read back in the commentary.
Also, previous version used to let you send a particular daily devotional to others, now not able to do this. I think this was a mistake. Being able to send someone one of the daily commentaries was a way to spread the Message to another person who might benefit from it. Plus it made others aware of this wonderful App. Please make this option available again. Thank you for considering these suggestions/requests.

Love the content BUT not the new update

I have used BIOY for some time now & LOVE it but this new update is not visually appealing or easy to follow & doesn’t have options like the old one.
The old version you could see when you finished reading each section so if you had to stop then come back you had an idea of where you were but not the new version. As soon as you open it the check shows up like you’ve completed the whole day. It has no tracking guide for each day.
There’s so much empty space as I scroll I’m not sure if it’s something that hasn’t downloaded or just wasted space
This might be petty but even the color options are gone. It’s only red. And unfortunately red is my least favorite color & seeing that at 5am every morning is not how I love to start my visual day.
BUT with all that being said the content is still incredible with the commentaries. I still HIGHLY recommend this app just wish it had more of the features & tracking of the old version.
