Thought-provoking recovery

This is one of my favorite meditation books and I'm so glad they've made it into an app! The meditations are extremely thought-provoking and are so easy to read. At the bottom of each mediation day, there is a box where you can add your personal feelings. That's been very helpful. Highly recommend!

Love this!!

I read this every morning. It helps me take action on what I read by ending the meditation with "Today I will take action on this meditation by______________." Leaving a box for me to type in exactly what I will do to improve this day. Great way to help me focus on what I can do each day to help make the world a better place and help make me a better person.

Needs an update... Please fix!

This is one of my favorite daily meditation books. This app, however, needs some serious work! The features should mirror the "A Day at a Time" app, where you can click any day on the calendar and also star favorite passages. Not to mention the search feature is terrible. I read the passage for June 19 about doing the footwork, searched the word "footwork" to find similar passages, and the page I was on didn't even show up in the search results.

Please update ASAP! These passages really do help me get through my day!
