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.

- An oasis of calm, self care and the discovery of a better way to live
- A beginners guide into meditation and mindfulness
- Meditations that cover wide range of topics such as joy, gratitude and freedom from stress.
- Customisable sessions; choose the music, voice, mediations and timings that best suit you.
- Regular updates with new content.

“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)

Best app ever - Life changing

I’ve never felt compelled to write a review before for anything. This app is such a huge gift to me and worth every penny. I was wary at first that the meditations would be just fluff or even unbiblical, but neither is the case. They’re rooted in truth and guide you into communion with Holy Spirit. I started listening during pregnancy and noticed it instilled such a deep peace and every meditation led me to straight to the arms of Christ. I still listen to it daily at any moment when I can take 5-15 minutes to meditate on truth and look into the eyes of Christ in a focused way again. The meditations on healing and freedom from anxiety and the evening prayer are some of my faves so far. The evening prayer brings me to tears! Thank you so much for making this app. I’ve needed it for a long time and pray that believers can make meditative prayer a group and individual practice more and more, as God’s people have done for so many years.

So grateful for this Christian Meditation App!

I have been searching for years to find an app like this one. Huge answer to prayer! I am SO grateful that this app is free, for the guided breathe work and for the way the hosts lead us to meditate on Scripture.
After listening to their podcast and doing their meditations, it’s clear that they love Jesus, and the contemplative ways of Christ, which frees me up to relax and trust the directions of these meditations. Starting my day with their meditations is something I look forward to. The app is also super user friendly, and there’s many wonderful features to choose from, like the peaceful music and bells and chimes to end the time. There’s variety too and a good amount of silence. Thank you! I plan to share this peaceful and life giving app with everyone I know!

Perfect Meditations with Christian focus

I cannot recommend this meditation app highly enough. I’d been practicing meditation for almost a year when before I tried this app. I wanted meditations with a Christian focus and had tried other Christian meditation apps but they weren’t right for me. There was too much talking/ guidance in the meditations which I found distracting. These meditations offer just the right balance and some only have guidance at the beginning and end. There is a wide choice of background sounds or music or silence and choices of bells and reminders during the meditation. Many tracks also offer a choice of different types of voices doing the speaking. Excellent choice for the “quieter” Christian.
