Two apps that I use every day to expand my heart.

The Sacred Space and Daily Examen apps are available for IOS and Android.

If you download these two apps and begin to use them both today, you will feel a difference in your spiritual life by the end of the week.

How’s that for a promise?

I can offer that promise without hesitation, because I know that it’s true. I use both of these apps every day. I ask my new Spiritual Direction clients to use them.

I don’t have any financial stake in the apps. I don’t get paid to use them or endorse them. I stumbled across them because someone recommended them to me.

These two apps work without fail because

  1. the spiritual practices they are built for are ancient and time tested

2. the easy to use apps make it a snap to actually use them..

Let’s look at the previous points:

The spiritual practices they are built on are ancient and time tested. The Sacred Space app is designed to help in the process of prayer and reflection on Scripture. While it may seem odd to pray while looking at your phone, using a tool to help you reflect and pray is an old process. Rosary beads. Stained glass windows depicting a biblical story. Bells ringing to remind people around the city and in the fields to stop and pray. We have been using tools to help us to pray and reflect for centuries.

The easy to use apps make it a snap to actually use them. How many apps have you downloaded, how many books have you bought, with perfectly sincere intent to use them? How many are still sitting there unused? If you are like me, a ton.

Using the Sacred Space and Daily Examen apps is as simple as swiping with one finger. Follow the prompts. The entire process is laid out for you every day. All that you need is a finger to swipe and an open heart.

Why is this important? Because easy to use, doable steps dramatically increase the likelihood that we will stick with a habit.

These apps provide the time tested, easy to use and doable steps that will allow to create and stick with the habits of prayer and reflection.

So, if you download these two apps and begin to use them both today, you will feel a difference in your spiritual life by the end of the week.

You have my word.
