Devotionals: 9 Devotionals Every Christian MUST Read
Phonto: This is the mobile app I use the most for creating wallpapers, images and sharable original content.

It has great blending features and you can also bend the text for nice effects. You can create image from scratch and if you only buy one design app, this should be it! Click here to download it!
Mextures: My favorite texture effects app. You can add tons of film grain, textures, light leaks, gradients and more to your images.

Jesus Calling: This is the app version of Sarah Young’s popular devotional. This devotional app is typically the #1 Book App in the App Store’s “book” category and is one of my favorite devotionals of all time. Written from Jesus’ perspective, not meant to replace Scripture, but to encourage and promote communion with the Lord. Check it out! Click here to download the app!

Battlefield of the Mind Devotional: This is the devotional is based off of my favorite book about how to control your mind. Joyce Meyer does a fantastic job explaining what the Bible says about our minds and the spiritual battle. Click here to download the app!
Bible Study apps
The Bible app: This is the Bible app I use the most. It was created by the amazing people at LifeChurch.tv and is an great labor of love. It is free to us, but it has cost thousands, if not millions of dollars to create over the years. LifeChurch.tv has put the Word of God in everyone’s pocket via their mobile apps. Click here to download the app!
The Bible Study app: Another great Bible app that includes a library of available commentaries, maps and dictionaries. There is a built-in store that allows you to purchase many other books that aid in your research of the Bible. This Bible is definitely worth the investment and great to have in your “Bible Study” folder on your phone. Click here to download the app!
Blue Letter Bible: If you are a serious Bible student, this app is for you. It is the only Bible that I know of that easily gives you access to Greek and Hebrew lexicons, so that you can see exactly what a Greek or Hebrew words means. It also gives you access to the Strong’s numbering system and teaches you how to pronounce Greek and Hebrew words. Click here to download the app!
