So what’s Bible Bloom? I’m so excited to tell you about this Bible app today that I can hardly contain myself. You know I love sharing Bible apps with you- posts like “4 Bible Apps I Recommend,” “Devotional Apps That Make You Sip Your Latte Longer,” and “5 Awesome Bible Apps for Kids” are all favorites around here. So today I’m privileged to get the word out about a very beautiful Bible app, “Bible Bloom.”
This Bible app is a fabulous growing tool for any Christian. From their own words, Bible Bloom “is for the Jesus freaks, the prayer warriors, the worshipers, and the servants. It’s for everyone who finds the love of God irresistible and for anyone who dares to discover how strong that love really is.”
When I read the description above, I thought of you, my readers, because we have such diversity in age and stage of life around here- especially among the Bible Challenge Readers. And when I previewed the app, the first two things I noticed were that it is such a beautiful app with graphics that are so pleasing to the eyes and secondly, that this app is so versatile that it could be used for any age. I can recommend it for the young girls I spoke to on Friday night or the oldest Bible Challenge Reader we have. (She’s in her 80’s!)
So what do you do with Bible Bloom? Glad you asked. The main page looks like this:
- read your Bible
- bookmark your favorite passages
- use the prayer packs to focus your prayer life and develop your love language with God
- use the reminders to set up prayer reminders or Bible reading reminder times
- do the daily challenge- my personal favorite feature of this app.
The Daily Challenge is a simple little spiritual challenge for each day that will encourage you to live out your Christian faith. For example, mine for today encouraged me to “pray for the people in my life with whom there is a conflict.” When you complete the challenge, you have the opportunity to share it on your Facebook or Twitter account, though that is not mandatory. Since I’m focused on “inspiring extraordinary faith for everyday living” here on the blog, I really believe this daily challenge is a great little tool to help you grow in your faith in God each day.
So I switched my app usage around a bit in order to begin using Bible Bloom. I don’t use a Bible app for the daily Bible Reading Challenge, so that wasn’t a factor for me. But you could easily begin using the app for the Bible Reading Challenge by placing four bookmarks on the chapters where we are reading each day! And I did move my prayer reminders from the regular reminders over to this app. I’m also pulling up the Daily Challenge each day to encourage faith in action.
You can buy Bible Bloom for only $.99 on Itunes! For the beauty and versatility of usage for this app, I think that’s such a great price. The app does contain in-app purchases- so if you enjoy the prayer packs, you may want to buy more as you need them.
For today though, I’m privileged to give away 5 FREE downloads to my readers. Pretty cool, huh? And I really want to hear what you think about the app after you download it and get going with it, ok? And I realize that some of you, my faithful readers, won’t need a Bible app- but I’m guessing you know someone who surely could use it! Won’t you share the info with them today?
So, follow the Rafflecopter and I can’t wait to see you tomorrow!
