    Ya’ll are so fun! I have a blackberry that I get my emails on. I typed up my memory verses and emailed them to myself and saved that email. That way I can have them on my phone with me when I don’t have my spiral. Love this technology!

    Oh my goodness! Just TODAY I was looking for an app that would help me when I was away from my spiral but decided I’d never find something that would suffice…and here you are!
    So stinkin’ cool! Thank you ladies!
    Love you!

    Girl, you are speaking my language! I so loved watching you and Sabrina. Fun!

    I have the app on my iPod Touch and have typed in my verse (from memory!). Love the spiral; love the app.

    You ladies (and one man) are the best! Thank you!

    You two are soooooo cute! And your enthusiasm is contagious! Too bad I don’t have an iphone or ipad. Bummer! But I do have my handy dandy spiral and will continue to use that!

    Love the app idea, but what about us girls who just love our Droid phones and will keep it even when Verizon gets the iphone next month. Can we get an app, too?

    Amber Dawn says:

    YAYYY!!! LOVE it! It is also compatible with and iTouch I was worried so I hurried up to my itunes to make sure it was compatible with it and alas it was! Thanks for your hard work in making Scripture memory so much more interesting and easy for us! BLESSINGS!!!

    Thank you! Thank you! This is such great timing – I am leaving on trip soon and now it will be easier to take my verses with me!

    Bev says:

    We’ve been praying for an App. It does work on the iPod Touch 4 too; that’s what I have.

    I type in the date January 1 before my scripture. Next entry will be January 15 and my scripture verse.

    Love it! Love it!
    Thank you for making it a FREE App.

    Will we see an App for the LPM Store soon? Hope so!

    I came across the Siesta App when I searched App Store for Beth Moore. I also found “Praying God’s Word”–another Yipee!
    Then I searched for LifeWay Christian Resources and the App Store brought up the Holman Christian Study Bible for $9.99–great buy for the Study Bible. Love using it with lots of free extra books.

    Thank you Beth and Sabrina! you are very much appreciated for being you and all you do.

    I never thought I’d love my iphone as much as I do right now. It’s just perfect. Thanks!

  12. 112

    Love, love, love it!!! Thank you so much! I had typed my verse in the notes section on my iPhone, but having the SMT app is going to be so much more fun and way cuter! 🙂 Can’t wait to start on my second verse! God is teaching me so much!

    Lindsee says:

    This just made my heart very, very happy. Especially since I have yet to order my spiral. Or are they all gone? I guess I need to check on that. My paper is getting boring.

    I want to know when you have an app ready for Blackberry too! I love this idea!

    Even though we are a PC ONLY household 🙂 (The geeky menfolk being adamant about this stance!) I love that you all created this app AND I just loved seeing your shining faces and hearing your sweet voices, Beth and Sabrina. Thank you for your love and encouragement.

    As I said on Twitter (after I installed the app on my ipod) this is way too cool. You gals are so cute and I loved “meeting” Sabrina. Good name – I have a daughter named Sabrina! Thank you for always thinking of ways to enrich our lives through the scripture. You are loved and appreciated so very much.

    Your grateful siesta,

    I have just downloaded the app on my ipad and will also download it on my phone in just a few minutes. This is great, now I have three different tools to help me. It is very difficult for me to memorize anything, so I also bought a new calligraphy pen and notebook. Nothing fancy, just the marker type calligraphy pen, but I figured as long as I was going to write out the scriptures several times to help with the memorization process, I could also try to improve my calligraphy skills.
    I have also chosen Hebrews 4:12 that I read on the new app as my next scripture. It is a long verse for me, but it really spoke to me when I looked up the complete verse.
    Thank you for the hard work that you and your team do each day to keep us all inspired in the word of God.

    I am about to die over here with excitement. I downloaded my siesta app on my iPad and clapped all by myself. I love y’all. I love precious Sabrina. Also, after mtg her in San Antonio and her beautiful daughter I have decided that her daughter looks like an actress but I can’t remember her name. Yayayayayayay!!!!!!!!

    Jaime K says:

    Oh my gosh I cannot even tell you how excited I am for this. I had looked for apps to use for my ssmt and haven’t really liked any of them. THIS is going to be great! Thank you for thinking of us and helping us keep our verses with us all the time.

    Cara says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea!!! I just have a question..other than the notes for personal use, do we need to comment on your initial post with our verses as well? I didn’t know if that would link back to your blog or if it was a comment that would just be posted in the app alone.. Thanks! AND LOVE YOU BUNCHES!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dear Beth,
    I just wanted you to know how excited i am about the SSMT. Last year i decided i wanted to work more consistently on memorizing scripture and as the new year approached, i was thinking about making it a “resolution”. I saw that a friend posted on FB about this opportunity and i had to check it out. I even passed the info along to my fellow siestas who meet together on Wednesday night (we started with your Daniel study and are now doing Revelation). Several of them are participating also. Thanks also for the app. My husband got me an itouch for Christmas (my very first i-anything) so how timely that you’ve made an app (and a free one at that) to help with this commitment. God bless you and your ministry team!!

    Hugs from the Northwest 🙂

    How cool! Now I’ll be waiting anxiously for the “Siestas for Android” app! Loving my little spiral as well! Thanks for all you do Beth! We love you!

    This is so great! I loooove having this right on my phone. Mine seems to have only partially loaded though, because I am missing some of the pages and comment options that were on your itunes preview page. Ill check into it tomorrow with the apple support link you posted.. Anyway…Thanks! I’m loving this!

    I can’t get my iPhone until next month… But I am so there! 🙂 Maybe my hubs will get it for my birthday. I have never been so excited about APPS before in my life. 🙂

    Beth… Thank you not just for hosting a blog, and writing Bible studies… But thank you for teaching us how to be community right here at the tips of our fingers.

    I’ve been praying for dear JOANNE and remembering our Siesta Meet UP in 2008 when I last was able to see a few of our friends F2F. WOW! God is doing church here and it is a powerful thing. Thank you for using your influence to inspire, encourage and bless us through the work of the Father in your sweet life. I know He gets the glory, but you are so willing a vessel. I just feel like you are my forever friend… You’ve walked me through the hardest times when my son went home to be with God, and even before it was your Bible study that helped me surrender his fate to the Lord. You’ve walked me through the healing of my grief. God put you in my life because I needed to grow up and QUICK! Your Bible studies and God’s sweet Spirit helped me to do just that. In a couple of short years I walked out a painful existence.

    I tell people all the time I never really memorized Scripture save one excursion into Psalm 46 because I wanted to pray it for a list of people – I memorized the whole chapter in 12 hours. But, that is another story. Every other word of the Scriptures that resides in my heart started with flipping back and forth in the tissue paper pages of His Word with your Bible studies. Before to long I could quote it, pray it and live it.

    I thank my God that He created YOU! And that He is forever teaching me through you to follow Christ all the way home.

    You are precious to Him and us.

    Love you.

      Love ya, still… 🙂

    Beth I am so excited about the app. I just want you to know I feel like so much a part of this blog and being a Siesta that my very first thought when I saw that we have an app was “oh my word, I now have my own app” (as if my name was on it). Thank you so much for all you do and for making each one of us feel special. (and a big thank you to your staff)

  29. 129

    I just love it when you pop in to say hi, like getting that almost daily phone call from your BFF. It would be like a week without chocolate if I didn’t hear from Beth at least once.

    Awww.. I have neither an iphone or ipad.. I have a Droid 😉

  31. 131

    Oh my gosh, that was like skype. We gotta do that more often. How fun.

    So who is that extra person in the 8001…o.k. now I’m crying. I totally knew from the get-go I was memorizing scripture for 2011. I kept trying to figure out what to get my mom for Christmas and God said, “Hey have her do this with you and then you guys can go to the conference together this year.”

    Colette says:

    I love it!! I just downloaded the app right after I read the email and watched your video!! Thank you for all you do!!! This is going to be so fun!!! I love your blogs and love reading everyones scriptures that they picked!!! I think before the end of the year we will have the whole Bible memorized between all of us!!! Yay for Siestas!!! Also I have been praying for Joanne!! Met her last year at your Tucson conference!! Trusting God and having Faith for her full recovery!!! Thank you again for the app!

    Loved, Loved, LOVED this video! It was So uplifting to see your smiling face and to hear your upbeat voice after the last three days of fervently #prayingforJoanne Heim we’ve all been doing. With all that’s been going on, I’ve barely looked up and honestly forgotten about my SSMT Verse. I am ON IT AGAIN!!

    I absolutely LOVED the story about the letter & the mail lady… A-MA-ZING!! I am just blown away how the Lord is using Siesta’s and HIS Word right now! PRAISE YOU FATHER!!

    Oh and just so you ALL know & so yall can update here on this blog post… you can ALSO Download the ‘Siesta App’ on your iPod Touch too! YAY!! I downloaded it and put my first verse in. Now I can listen to music and read my verses all at the same time! 😀 So excited about this App – we are so Blessed to be Siesta’s, I’m just sayin!

    Thank you again for the video and IT was so GOOD to FINALLY meet Sabrina face to face – “HI SABRINA” (waving)
    Much Love to You Beth,
    Hollie♫

    Rosalye Baldwin says:

    Yeah!! One more way to keep up with and practice my scriptures! Last time I listed my references on “Notes” and recorded them on “Voice Memo” which are already on my iphone. Now I will add the verse written out!!
    Thank you………so cute! We have quite a few participating from Vicksburg, MS Last time there were only 2 of us! God be praised!!!

    omgosh…this just makes my ipad itch that much stronger!!! then i just have to stop and thank the Lord for calling us into a ministry, that while it may not pay enough for all the extras in life, it PAYS in ways He blesses each day!!! (but, oh how i’d love one!) 🙂

    Beth says:

    I DON’T have a Siesta Spiral!!! How can I order one, or is it too late????

    I have already memorized my first verse!! Woo Hoo!!

    Erika says:

    Thanks so much for caring for us! This is an awesome app! I am writing down verse 2 right now. I have always wanted some buddies to memorize scripture with and this seems like an excellent platform. It’s amazing to me how a group of people I really don’t know can inspire me to memorize scripture.
    Thanks Siestas!

    Maria – New York, NY

    Philippians 3:10-12 (The Message)

    I gave up all that inferior stuff so I could know Christ personally, experience his resurrection power, be a partner in his suffering, and go all the way with him to death itself. If there was any way to get in on the resurrection from the dead, I wanted to do it.

    Is this where I write my second verse for tht 15th?

    Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.

    Beth,and Sabrina ya’ll are so cute!
    I don’t have an Iphone or an I pad- want one, but, will have to wait. If you ever get an app for the Blackberry you can count me in!: Love this challenge of scripture memory- my mom taught me for years when I was very young to get that word in my little heart. She would be very proud right about now:)

    Hi Beth,
    What a great start to my day to see you so jumpin happy. I just love the sweater you are wearing. It is so pretty on you.
    I still have not received my spiral and wondered if there are any others from Canada that have not received their books too???
    Looking at the i-pad, I need to investigate that!!! My husband would love one.

    Thanks for a great start today. Hope to see my spiral soon…Love you Beth and Friends
