The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has launched a new web-based app to help people everywhere engage in daily actions to grow closer to God. The app is called “Become” and can be found at become.org.
Through simple, self-guided “paths,” users can choose to go through short engaging activities to learn more about basic spiritual truths. In longer experiences called “journeys,” users can choose to dive deeper into spiritual topics through enhanced interactions, scriptures, sermons and more. Whether on a path or a journey, people using this app are invited to do things to enhance their understanding and discover additional perspective, peace, comfort and joy. For example, in the path about how Jesus comforts us, users are asked, “Who could you help comfort this week? Take a moment and think of someone who may be in mourning. Write down their name and select an action you want to commit to this week.”
Other topics for users to engage with include how to pray, serving others, a life of joy, hear God speak, working through disappointment and forgiving others.
“This new web-based app is an important way to help people become better acquainted with God through personal experience—whatever their understanding of Him and wherever they may be on their spiritual journey,” says Elder Marcus B. Nash, a General Authority Seventy and executive director of the Church’s Missionary Department.
