WE ARE FUNDED!!!! Including Words with Mary!!! I will be hard at work on the new APP --- which will be offered for FREE!! Thank you all for your support, prayers and encouragement. "Blessed is SHE who believed God would do what He said!"
Can I just tell you ... If you are ever trying to raise money for something - and you are struggling to meet your goal.. DO NOT peruse other people's causes and see how much money they are getting!! WHILE 90% are more worthy than this, the fact that someone has raised over $8000 for their dogs new hip lol, is a little disheartening. LOL... Jesus I Trust In You!
Just days left to meet this goal -- I know that I have enough awesome friends using social media to help accomplish funding this and the Words with Mary App!! Prayer, Share, and download!! Please!
Please join me in praying to Our Lady Undoer of Knots for the funding of this project... NEXT up: Words with Mary!!! #share
Our Lady Undoer of Knows
HAPPY Saturday .... I've seen a little boost in downloads but no where near what is needed. PLEASE share this app and ask your friends to download! I promise it is worth the 99 cents!!
Today's reflection: Lord some people are easier than others to obey You on this command. Grace me to love all like you. Hmmm, got someone that comes to mind when you read this?? :)
Sharing the faith can be difficult ... my prayer is that the Words with Series - with the "share on social media" feature - provides a simple way to reach out with Jesus' message of love.
Recent reflection from Words with Jesus
I know .. everyone needs money these days -- I'm just looking for $1 download and a little love on the Share button!! Thanks :)))

When I read the Word of God .. I fall more in Love with God... Words With Series Nov. 1st
Reposting - one of my original videos discussing the decision behind why I created the Words With Apps.
Reposting: What's the App about?

FINALLY... content for Words with Jesus - the first in the series, due out by Nov. 1st is COMPLETE!! That means the beta version will be soon!! So excited to see this dream become a reality!! #Grateful

WEEKEND SPECIAL... Pledge $5 or more this weekend - even if you have already pledged -- and if we raise an additional $1000 by Monday, I will double everyone's rewards. Receive the next installment - Words with Mary, or an additional copy of the book. But most of all know you are helping transform lives through the power of God's Word!
Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He will do it. Ps. 37:5 #share #SupportNeeded
You see the Re-edited version of The Words With video -- incorporating our homeschool lessons with the ministry goals. #Efficiency #share
Words With ...reEdited
In a 9/10/ 13 lecture to the @jcarrollsociety -- @Cardinal_Wuerl said, "If you are going to have a relationship with God, you must find moments in your day to talk with him!" and "find some moments where you talk to God, which can be short as a text" -- THIS IS EXACTLY what the Words With series App is all about!! #NewEvangelization #NewMedia
New Video - from very talented 14 year old son. Thanks AJ. This week - pledge $25 and get my first book (mailed to you right away)!!
September Update Video
Today's sample entry from Words With Jesus app: For they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty Mk 12:44 Perhaps this poverty is of my spirit? Lord, help me realize that even when I feel I pray poorly, You lovingly accept it.
THIS WEEK - make $25 donation - addition to Reward also get my book "Three Persons, One God". Can I count on your help?
Sample Entry from the App: If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself Mt 16:24 Mary probably had ideas of what she expected her life to be, but at the Annunciation chose to trust in God's plan.
Happy Birthday Blessed Mother!
Blessed Virgin Mary
"Jesus, the master, our teacher... responded to the alluring deceptions of the evil one with the all-powerful Word of God." M. Basil Pennington. IF those temptations are DAILY, should not our time in HIS Word also be daily. That is what this project is trying to accomplish - creating a way to enter into daily dialog with Jesus with His words every day. Words With Jesus - coming Nov. 1st
Is it "Fund me Friday"?? Hey, a girl can dream :) Blessings for a wonderful weekend!!
Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.
A third of the way there... with incredibly generous pledges today !! Sing PRAISE to the Lord, Sing praise!! With your help I KNOW we can make this goal -- let's share, pray and make this last 2/3rds!
HAPPY Tuesday but it feels like Monday Morning! Have you prayed today? "I glorified you on earth by accomplishing the work that you gave me to do." Jn 17:4
Why use GoFundMe ? Because I wanted to say YES to God when He put this idea on my heart, but after waiting a year I still didn't have any other way to make it happen but through the generous support of people like you!!! Can't give? believe me I understand -but can you share on your Twitter or Facebook?
$800!! This is amazing... even though there is still so much more to go - I am very grateful to all those who have sacrificed coffee, lunch or dinner out, or even more to help make this App a reality!! Thank you!!
HELP!! Just hours until the first installment for the App is due -- PRAY, SHARE, PLEDGE... pretty please
Good morning... Happy Labor Day . It is almost time to begin the exciting process of taking this idea to creating an App. I need your help now - please if you can pledge today - and share the project, and as always PRAY!! Jer. 29:11
Donating is only part of the way you can help the Words With series... sharing on facebook and twitter is another. Crowdfunding works best the bigger the crowd. PLEASE consider sharing the link!
Words with St. Therese will be on of the many Apps released with this series. Her little, yet profound way of loving God and growing in Holiness - will surely bring all of us closer to God!
St. Therese as sacristan
YEAH!! We made the $700 goal.. let's reach $1000 by Monday, we can do it!!! - for every share you will be entered into a drawing for a signed copy of "Three Persons, One God"
BE the donation to put us over $700 and I'll double whatever reward package you select!!
One Week left for installment #1 - our opportunity to be missionaries, bringing the Word of God to more people using today's technology. St. Therese, pray for us. #Share #ThankYou
Another example... "Where I am, there you may be also" John 14:3 No place are you more present than in the Eucharist. When in Mass and Adoration, may I recognize I am truly with Jesus. The App combines Scripture, Tradition and Sacraments - another type of spiritual trifecta!
A new way to help spread the word - Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WordsWithSeries
-with only a week left -- your help is even more important. Your support means so much. We can never have too many ways of sharing God's word!! We are almost a 1/3 way there - please help reach this goal! Blessings, Allison
Here is a new update - in it I discuss more detail on the features of the App, though we use graphics and images to explain what is planned - THESE ARE not mock-ups - just wanted to give you a better idea of what is planned. Thanks again for your continued support and prayers!
An update to discuss App features
Again last night I received validation to my Yes to God -- it was the second time, God has put me in a place that I heard the words, "Just say YES and see what God can do." This project is one of my Yeses - I believe in its ability to reach people, encourage faith and transform lives (Ok that last part might sound a little dramatic, but I'm pretty convinced that encounters with Christ should be transformative!!) Thank you for your continued support - please continue to pray and share!!
Help me evangelize -- how does an App evangelize?? How many of you would feel comfortable asking your friend to by a $12 book on the words Jesus spoke in the Gospels, or on how to enter into prayer dialog with Jesus?? How many of you would recommend a 99 cent App - that is small bite size portions of the Gospel and one sentence reflections that guides one to develop a relationship with Christ on their own pace?
"Everything is Grace" St Therese of Lisieux. But what is "ª#"Žgrace"¬? It is the undeserved yet freely given gift of God's life within in us. @--->-- "ª Words with St Therese - coming early 2014
HAPPY Monday Morning!! Just 2 weeks before the App goes to the developer... Today I'm working on a new video and facebook page.. update to follow. Prayers and shares always appreciated!!
My Friday routine consists of visiting Fr. Patrick Peyton's grave to pray, Confession, Mass, and then Adoration ... the Spiritual Trifecta. I am very blessed to have these opportunities week after week to grow in faith -- how can I pray for you today ??
HAPPY Friday ... I've been thinking so much about prayer and the importance of it for growing in our faith. How many people go day after day never entering in - mostly because we don't believe we have the time, yet never miss an email or facebook post. Technology for the good of a soul - it is so very possible. Please share the Words With campaign.. let's see if we can top $1000 this weekend!! Blessings, Allison
Today's challenge.. 100 - $5 donations. Nothing is impossible for God, and I truly believe that - which leads me to - Believing you will Receive (one of my favorite bible verses). So my favor today - please share the link on whatever social media outlet you have - let's see if we can reach $1000!! So grateful for all your support !! Blessings, Allison
More about the inspiration for this App: When I was speaking with the developers at Little i Apps "“ they mentioned how I had a very unique perspective in coming up with something not seen done often in the Catholic market. While, in general, Catholics were exceptional at providing a "banquet" sized writing for teaching or sharing the faith, and even some had gotten it down to a "meal" but what they saw in this App was a "˜snack' size sharing of the faith. Although bite size in length is rich in content "“ and includes many aspects of the Catholic faith "“ sacraments, saints, Our Blessed Mother, and the Catechism. My prayer is that this little bit each day will help the user grow in relationship with Jesus in leaps and bounds.
Here is another example for one of the daily devotionals you'd find on the Words With Jesus app -- Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed Jn 20:29 To believe, Thomas needed to see Jesus' wounds with his own eyes. What do I need to see to believe?
Another gorgeous New England Day.. and another day of surprises and blessings at more people share and support the Word With App. Thank you to those who have shared ... on Twitter, FB or Google + ... I'm so grateful!!
Yeah we broke $300 today!!!! Thank you to all who are sharing, donating, and most all of PRAYING!! Haven't prayed today... here is another example from the App: "Go; it shall be done for you as you have believed"Mt 8:13 *Trust requires this moving forward in faith, regardless if we can presently see where we are going.
Welcome to a new week -- I pray it is filled with many blessings and graces. I'm looking for some help spreading the word.. Do you have a blog?? Would you consider featuring this campaign and the App project in it?? I'd be so very grateful!
HAPPY Saturday ... I pray you have many relaxing plans in store for you. If they happen to be spending time online, and you feel so inclined ... Its not beneath me to ask again for that $5 donation to help make the Words With Series a reality... MANY BLESSINGS!! Allison :)
So excited to see the pledges coming in - I guess the new video was a great idea. There is nothing like it out there - I pray it is God's will that we can get the funding needed to make this happen. I trust in whatever He chooses, I'm not one to argue with God!
POSTED NEW VIDEO!! Please check it out!! And help promote this campaign by sharing it with yourfacebook friends, google+ and twitter contacts! So grateful for your help!!
I've been in Brazil at World Youth Day -- new video - and new insights I can't wait to share. Speaking with Pilgrims - young and old, made me see even more why this App is needed!
Tomorrow I leave for Rio de Janeiro for World Youth Day - I will be posting updates and a new video - hopefully explaining even more about this exciting App idea. Follow the trip on www.ReconciledToYou.com/wyd-blog
