Every weekday we publish a Christian quotation, Bible verse, and occasional smile to provide you with inspiration and encouragement in your walk with Christ. Every weekend we publish an inspirational message to encourage you in your faith even more.

This app includes an extensive database of thousands of inspirational quotations, curated by Greg Potzer and sorted into dozens of categories for easy reference, including quotes on faith, hope, love, grief, prayer, loneliness, anger, forgiveness, strength, worry, wisdom, among others. This app also includes a database of hundreds of sermons, devotionals and inspirational messages to take you deeper in your faith.

This app also includes music from over a dozen inspirational CDs to use for meditation, relaxation or simply to soothe your soul, including the instrumental piano music of Eric Elder, Marilyn Byrnes and Jennifer Ramsey playing contemporary versions of favorite hymns, worship songs, and original compositions.

This app also includes over a dozen full-length books, each written to inspire you that God is alive and working in people's lives today. The books range from short devotionals like "Two Weeks with God" to longer Bible studies like "Ephesians: Lessons in Grace," "Exodus: Lessons in Freedom," and "Romans: Lessons in Renewing Your Mind," as well as the popular full-length Christmas novella, "St. Nicholas, the Believer: A new story for Christmas based on the old story of St. Nicholas."

And for those who need prayer, or who want to pray for the needs of others, the prayer section of the app allows you to post a prayer request at any time, notifying dozens of people to begin praying for you immediately, and allow you to read through and prayer for the needs of others.

"This Day's Thought from The Ranch" is truly a unique app, filled with encouraging words, music, and messages to give you a boost in your faith anytime, anywhere—all for free—and updated daily!

Perfect daily devotional PLUS!


I'm so glad that I chose this app; it offers daily thoughts, quotes, scripture, sermons (to read or listen to) books, pretty music and more. I liked it even more once I 'met' Eric Elder through one of the videos. He shares his heart and his faith in such a real way that lets you know he understands real life but encourages you to live your faith!

Great App! Very ENCOURAGING!!

Jesus is ALIVE! Repent

I love the many resources they have to offer on this app.
Daily scriptures - these have always blessed me via email.
Books - I love that you can read all these books through the app or order them for your personal copy.
Music - me and my wife absolutely love the music offered here and it has blessed our home as we play it sometimes during the day and as we go to sleep. My favorites are the soothing piano music and an album called "Feel the Light"!
Quotes, videos, and sermons are all on here too!
Just get this app and see for yourself. You will be blessed truly!

Really Enjoy This App


I love your daily inspirational quotes and scripture. They are so uplifting when I need them most.
