The popularity of mobile apps has continued to rise, as their usage has become increasingly prevalent across mobile devices. There are  even apps for monitoring your health, a priority interest for people in Southern California. Keith Wommack, a colleague of mine, has researched some of these beneficial apps. Check out this post that was first published in the Houston Chronicle on April 7, 2014.

Do you want to control your own health care? If so, you’re not alone. A societal shift to a more patient-centered, empowered care is taking place.

Influential game changers in this adjustment, allowing people to play a more active role in their health care, are computer tablets and smart phones, as health apps are being downloaded daily.

Health apps can count your steps, carbohydrates, and calories. They can track your diet and heart rate, as well as log your nutrition. One app even attempts to shame you with a snarky voice when you gain weight instead of lose it.

However, if you really desire added control over your health, you might consider a few Bible apps.

Yes, Bible apps. Studies show prayer and spirituality benefit both mind and body.

      Thank you, Keith. Through reading this piece, I realized the future (or present for some) is having a daily study regime actually on one’s phone. I appreciate knowing about those apps.

    Apps can certainly help us to keep our thoughts on the right track. I like the idea of “Bible apps”. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for this message. Bible apps sound really good. Didn’t know we had those , I am so untechie. Ha Ha but I’m learning so keep sending me these great ideas. Thanks Don.

    This post is so informative and I’m glad to know of all those Bible apps out there.

    Pamela’s comment, “I’m so untechie,” gets a ditto from me. But it’s good to be aware of what is available so we can share it with all the techie pros out there.

    The Beatitude readings that healed a woman of pain really touched me. It’s valuable for everyone to know how the Bible’s beautiful messages can uplift and heal all who turn to its pages.

    Thank you for this wonderful post.
