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
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.
Suggestion for future recordings?
Love love love this app. It makes me feel less alone when dealing with anxious thoughts, and brings me into the presence of Jesus. Would you ever create meditations for dealing with chronic pain/health issues? Sometimes there is nothing I can do about my physical (or mental) pain except ride it out. I’d love to have a meditation which speaks hope and truth while sitting in the pain. So far, the Belief Meditation from 12-step is my go-to for that. Thank you!

So pleased you’re both enjoying it and finding it helpful. We’re planning more meditations and recordings very soon.
This AMAZING app has helped change my life
Being still is hard, but this app has helped me in so many ways! Struggling with the stresses of life, ministry and anxiety is a daily battle, but many times I have used these short meditations to calm me down ...and they have worked wonders!! It’s truly The power of God, and this app if definitely of Him. Thanks for creating a simple, peaceful tool for me to use during my days.
