Great morning read. I have several guys who read and share from it everyday. Powerful, challenging and insightful.
But... biggest annoyance is having to wait for the app to go through it's "Hazleton" plug screen and then the "Touchstones for Men" screen. Yes I know it's a Hazleton publication. Yes I know it's Touchstones for Men... I clicked on the app! I reference back to the read up to 5-7 times every morning while working with others. It's annoying especially when all the other daily reads are capable staying "open" on that day's page for at least that day without having to "plug".
Hazleton... please take a look at any King inc. app. They stay open for 24 hours or unless you close them.
Is this petty? Maybe... but you've been asking for a rate and review for the past week.

I don't start my day without Touchstones

It took me a while to start "book ending" as part of my 12-Step Recovery. I read Touchstones and three other Hazelden books every day! If my day isn't going great, I read them again! They help to shift my thinking about life and people.

My program includes morning quiet time (prayer & meditation) with God. Touchstones offers wisdom, hope and meaningful thoughts to start and sustain my day. I hope you find this app as helpful to your recovery! 🙏
