The New FIRST 5 mobile app is here!

The New FIRST 5 mobile app is here!

Guess what!? It’s finally here! The FIRST 5 app is available for download today and I can hardly contain myself!


“We say we put God first … So wouldn’t it make sense that we give Him the first 5 minutes of each day?”

“Proverbs 31 Ministries is bringing this God-given vision to life through the launch of FIRST 5. This app will be designed to open first thing each day (before social media or emails can distract you) with a short teaching in God’s Word.”

It’s been called “the app that will transform your time with God” and I can certainly vouch for that! In fact, God is using FIRST 5 to completely rearrange my life in extraordinary ways. Ways I never dreamed would be possible. 

How? Because several months ago my good friend, Lysa TerKeurst invited me to be a part of this holy project.

Surprised. Humbled. Unqualified. Excited. Unworthy

Yes, I felt all those things (and more) but as I prayed about this incredible invitation – to be a part of what God was doing, I couldn’t say no. I didn’t want to say no!

Sure, there were many moments of “you can’t possibly do this!” thinking and in all honesty, I can’t … not without God’s help.

But I wasn’t about to let fear or intimidation keep me from experiencing a deeper relationship with God. Or hold me down instead of moving forward with Him.

If God was calling me to this assignment, I knew He would equip and empower me to accomplish it.

I wanted to be faithful and respond, “Yes Lord, I will!”  And it’s been a glorious whirlwind ever since!

So much has gone into this project already and there are several brilliant people working behind the scenes to make this the best mobile app available.

We’ve been planning, praying, writing, studying, strategizing, researching and video taping for months. All to get ready for the big launch and to give this amazing gift of FIRST 5 to you!

Here are some pics from our first video shoot:

First 5 Writing Team


Does it look like we’re having a great time? Oh, let me just tell you, we had a blast doing the videos and simply being together.

This picture is one of my favorites. Before shooting the first video we paused and prayed, asking God to anoint, bless and orchestrate this holy project to His liking, not ours.


Friend, will you join us and be a part of FIRST 5 today?

Oh, I hope you will and more than that … will you invite others to download FIRST 5 too? The FIRST 5 team wants you to be a part of what God is doing in our midst. We believe it’s going to transform lives around the globe!

All you have to do is go to the FIRST5 website. Downloads are available for Android, iPhone and iPad.

As you share FIRST 5 with others, be sure to use the hashtag #First5 and @First5app on all social media sites.

I’ll be posting FIRST 5 updates throughout the week on my Facebook and Twitter pages while I’m at the She Speaks Conference in Charlotte, NC.

A big thanks to Proverbs 31 Ministries for making First5 possible and bringing this God-given vision to life!



Lord, please do what only You can do. Spread Your sacred Word far and wide – throughout the ends of the earth – to each corner of the world. And use FIRST5 and Proverbs 31 Ministries to declare Your glory.

Launch each woman – who signs up for this mobile app – into a deeper relationship with You. May her first moments every morning be filled with Your presence, energized by Your Word and saturated with Your love. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
