Please note: Being a Canadian, I based this campaign on Canadian dollars. When Americans donate, their donation will automatically be converted. This gives Americans (as usual) an even better deal than us Canadians, as the US dollar is worth $1.03 Canadian dollars.

Saving Words is a unique, high quality devotional that combines the best of ancient wisdom with the best of modern technology. Each day you will have on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, a short devotion that includes a Bible verse and a concise meditation on that verse from the great Charles Spurgeon. Outside of the Bible, Spurgeon is the most-read Christian author in human history. His reflections are solidly biblical, gospel-centered, and they will encourage, challenge and edify you. Saving Words will be a daily incursion of eternal truth, a heavenly interruption in your daily life, and a welcome reminder to take your eyes off yourself and focus more and more upon Jesus.

Best of all, Saving Words isn’t just for you. With each daily devotion, we’ve created custom graphics so that you can share a specially selected quotation with your friends via text messages or social media, to strengthen and encourage your friends and followers.

We’ve taken the features we would want in the ideal digital devotional—a combination of features we’ve found nowhere else—and put them together:

1.  Bible verses specifically selected for daily meditations.

2.  Commentary on each verse from Charles Spurgeon, updated into modern English. Spurgeon’s time-tested insights will speak to you, wherever you are.

3.  Content available for you every day for a year, on a device you're constantly holding in your hands. Timeless truth, delivered daily.

4. For those who wish to use it, push notifications will remind you every day to spend time in the Word, at the time most convenient for you.

5.  You can share the day’s Saving Words through premium graphics to encourage your family, friends and colleagues. 

HOW WILL THE FUNDS BE USED?

First of all, none of the funds from this campaign will flow to us. Even though we’ve invested several thousand dollars of work into the design process, we’re not taking any money from this campaign. Rather, $5000 will go to a spectacular (Christian) developer with a stellar record of successful apps (in the top 5 on iTunes http://portfolio.beejaymorgan.com), who has given us an incredible rate. We’re confident he will do a superb job. Another $1000 will be held in reserve for maintenance and future updates.

This is all or nothing. If we don’t reach our goal of $6000, we won’t receive any funds and won’t be able to make this app. We’re all in this together.

JOIN US AND LET’S MAKE SAVING WORDS TOGETHER. SEE THE REWARD LEVELS ON THE RIGHT AND LEARN MORE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.

///FAQ'S///

Why isn't this for Android?

We need to start somewhere. We've decided to start with iOS. If this does well and we receive overwhelming support ($10,000), the Android version will be made.

What kind of iOS devices will this app work with?

Saving Words will work on iPod Touch Gen 3 and 4, on iPhone 3gs, 4, 4s, 5 and future versions, and on current and future iPads.

What does the "C" mean before the dollar sign?

The "C" refers Canadian. At the time of me writing this 1 USD is equal to 1.03 Canadian Dollars. So for Americans, the rewards will cost a little bit less.

Do you have a question? If so, please email me and I'll respond to you right away.
