I think this is the first official guest post I have ever written. Katie over at Do Not Depart asked me to write about some Android apps that have been useful for spiritual growth. If this is not your first time on our little blog, you have already heard about Do Not Depart from my posts about Hiding His Word. Her site has been a great source of encouragement and guidance in doing Bible study and Scripture memorization. You can read a snippet of my post below:
Heather’s “Top 10 iPhone Apps for Spiritual Growth” post was great, but I am an Android user. (I did send it to all my iPhone-owning family members and friends who found the post useful though.)
So, below you will find some Droid apps that I have found to be helpful for my spiritual growth. (Some are the same as on iPhone, but links are to Android apps.)
