Have you ever read a chapter of scripture, only to discover that you don’t remember a word of what you just read? You start again at the beginning, squint your eyes and discipline your mind, attempting to drink in the meaning of the text. What if you could study by focusing on one word at a time, like taking a magnifying glass to the word of God?

LDS Scripture Focus helps you capture the grand narrative of the scriptures as it clears away the noise that exists on a page of text. By reading one word at a time at an accelerated rate you eliminate the natural tendency to subvocalize and instead center your mind on the meaning of what you read.

In addition, the clean layout of LDS Scripture Focus makes it easy to chart your reading progress, with reminders to help motivate you to engage in daily personal scripture study.

Busy Momma Life? No problem!


What a morning I've had! Four kids, three school lunches, two toddler tantrums, one exhausted momma... and then "ding!" ... a notification reminder to pause life for a moment and read my scriptures. I love this app! I can swipe the alert message and jump back into my scriptures exactly where I left off.

The beautiful simplicity of the app allows me to read by verse and chapter or by individual word. No more distractions while I read (other than those of the toddler variety). I can ask myself why Mormon choose to painstakingly carve particular words and stories into the plates. I can pause and think and wonder. And if I have to leave the scriptures to manage whatever life's crisis a toddler created, the app remembers exactly where I left off.

I love this app and all the others these guys have created! BTW, their coloring book app?? You've GOT to check it out!

Finished It!!!

This app is amazing! I recommend this app to anyone who needs help reading their scriptures daily. I was having trouble doing the same thing, then my dad showed me this app, and reading my scriptures is easier than ever! The only things I would say to change or add is a feature that could read them for you. Adding a feature where you could control how fast or slow your device reads your scriptures to you, that way if you don’t have time to read in the morning you could just adjust the speed until it’s right and hit play!

Interesting Study Tool


I've found that whenever I change up the way I study scripture, I get something different out of it. I like the theory behind this method of study and it does allow me to focus completely on the words I'm reading while also reading more in less time. Love the clean, simple nature of this app. Takes a minute to get used to and develop a good flow. Definitely a great addition to my study.
