Transform your time with God using the First 5 app, developed by Proverbs 31 Ministries. We believe in giving the Lord our firsts! So it only makes sense for us to give Him our first thoughts of each day. First 5 was specifically designed to greet you with a short teaching in God’s Word first, before you get distracted by social media and everything else screaming for your attention. It will equip you to better study and know the Word of God.

• One Chapter a Day: We unpack books of the bible, focusing on one passage of scripture per day. So, instead of your daily scripture being random, First 5 will help you start to sense real progress in your understanding of the Bible.

• Highlight, Save and Share: You can now highlight any portion of our daily teachings to bookmark, share or add a personal note. Review your notes and activity through your Profile and use the new export feature to save them to your device.

• Reminder Functionality: Set up a reminder in the app and choose a custom message to bring you into the Word.

• Daily Scriptural Teaching: When you turn off your First 5 reminder, you’ll go straight to a daily Teaching.

Life Changing

For me, it’s always been difficult to find ways to connect with God. I’d try bible studies, devotionals, scripture time, reading the Bible, etc…but no routine seemed to “stick”. I would struggle to get the study done, finding enough time, or simply connecting to the material. Sure, some worked better than others, but it wasn’t until I started this app that I began to connect with God on a regular basis…and when I say “connect,” I mean “CONNECT”. It’s been truly life-changing for me, personally.
I appreciate every aspect of this app. The lessons are shorter, but they are deep and rich. They are soothing and calming. There is built-in time in the lesson for you to think and reflect. I so enjoy the message content and Craig’s approach and guidance. I connect with God regularly in sweet and meaningful ways. It has been really amazing.
Thank you Craig and the First15 team for what you do. It’s beautiful and impactful. I will be forever grateful.

Just what I need each morning!

I love this app! I have been using it consistently for 2 years....every day! It’s easy to open up the app find your devotion for the day. It’s goes chapter by chapter each day for a book of the Bible. I use the Bible Gateway app and have the chapter for the day read to me in dramatized version so I know who is talking. I then love to dig deep on how God is speaking to me trough this chapter and the devotion written on the app. You can go really deep and read the more section and look up all the verses. I love the comments section as well. People mostly women comment by answering the question of the day as to what God taught them through this. This is one of my favorite parts because you learn you are not alone in your relationship with God and other people have struggles and victories as well! On the weekends is a video teaching that is always perfect! Thank you first 5 you have helped me in my relationship with God!

Get this app

I love this app. It’s easy to use and has sooo many helpful tools! It’s easy to create a community of women and to share your journey. The women here are amazing. I have a suggestion that I think would be great. You have the option to comment on the teaching with a reflection, which I love. However the comment gets lost in all the other ones after you comment. It is noted in your profile that you commented but it’s hard to find that comment if it was a long time ago. It would be AMAZING if first 5 made an update with a journal feature. In which the reflections you make in the comment section of each teaching are saved into a personal journal on your profile. It would be amazing and another cool tool to have a faith journal in the app with all the reflections made throughout all the teachings. As a writer and journalist I would appreciate it’s sooooo much!
