resources for your journey with jesus
Worrisome. That’s how Publisher’s Weekly described me in their review of my book, The Wired Soul: Finding Spiritual Balance in a Hyperconnected World. Here’s what they said:
While reviewing recent studies about brains and neural pathways, Rhodes strikes a more worrisome tone, but her conclusions are uplifting, empowering, and pragmatic. (you can read more of their review here).
When you get me started, I admit I can be a bit worrisome about technology. In fact, when I was writing the book, David Zimmerman, my incredible editor at NavPress, had to pull me back a few times from coming on too strong. But truth be told, I have a love/ hate relationship with technology. I hate its addictive properties and the way it is rewiring our brains so that we find it hard to practice critical spiritual disciplines like reflection or mindfulness.
ON THE OTHER HAND, I happily embrace the benefits that seem to pile up daily as we move through this digital revolution. The challenge is how to make sure technology serves our needs, rather than it being our taskmaster. To that end, I thought I would share three of my favorite apps—one’s that I use regularly to enhance my spiritual journey and increase the depth of my relationship with God. One caveat though--if you are one of those who can't focus or be still in God's presence, if you check your smartphone for emails, texts, messages, etc. etc., you might want to work on focus before you start adding apps! But for the rest of you, here goes:
I would love to hear about any apps that help you in your spiritual journey--let us know in the comment section!

I appreciate knowing about these apps. I do use the BLB and I also use Youversion. I do a lot of my reading on Youversion as it keeps track of where I am and reminds me when I get behind. I also use many of the devotionals found on Youversion.
