Feedback from 3-Minute Retreaters:

The 3-Minute Retreat is the BEST way to start my day. Patricia

Some days 3 minutes is all I have for me. There is no better way to start my mind thinking and praising God for all the good he has done in my life. Jackie

More often than not, they seem to have been written just for me, where I am, right now! Anne

I love the 3-Minute Retreat because it centers my day on what is true, real, and life-giving. Derrell

No matter what time of day I read is the best 3 minutes of my day. Adela

I have the 3-Minute Retreat app and it’s a great way to slow down, reflect on something deeper, and prepare for the day before delving into the emails and tasks of the day. The app is incredibly handy with lovely graphics and music to transport you. Kamaria It is a little oasis of peace in my day – a chance to rejoice in the silence and refresh the heart and the soul.

Best 3 minute start of the day

This app is a wonderful way to start the day. After a brief morning prayer giving God the first moments of the day. Then spend 3 minutes (or long) in quiet reflection and reverence of our awesome God and his eternal, inexhaustible love and mercy for each of us. This app could not be easier to use with an intuitive interface, short yet provoking reflections/questions, various types of music choices and peaceful images. Try this free app every morning for a week and let This 3 minute search for God change you and your day. If it's not for you there are limitless ways to start you day with God. Thank you and may God continue to bless the developers of this app.

Lovely app!!!

I love the music and the prayers and the short thoughts that go with it. I like to sit after praying and go on this app and read the retreat then the music helps me sit and try to listen for Gods voice. The music is really beautiful. The pictures are nice too. Thank you for this app. I'm sorry for whoever complains about this app because it is free, and there are no ads. Just what it says it is .. a 3 minute retreat, and I like to sit and listen to the music longer and read from the Bible, so can be as many minutes as you wish. So thank you again to the makers of this app and may God bless.

A step backwards

The latest release looks like a step back to a very old version. The interface looks old. The photos aren't as sharp and the white box containing the daily reflection covers half the screen blocking the photo. The whole thing looks amateurish. The previous version looked much much better.
