Good morning. My name is Allison Gingras – I am a Catholic author, speaker and bi-weekly contributor to TechTalk on CatholicMom.com.
In 2009, I launched a ministry called Reconciled To You – the primary work is to encourage Catholics, those who are active, those who have drifted away, and those who are not sure where they stand – to embrace the many gifts of grace God provides us in prayer, scripture and the Sacraments. My main focus is to meet people where they are at – lately I’ve noticed that the place we find most people is attached to their smartphones. I have also noted, especially as a mom of 2 teenagers and one of millions with AD/HD, that our attention spans are shrinking.
It is in combining these insights with my love for scripture and the Saints that I have developed a new App – the “Words With…” series… which will launch with “Words with Jesus” in November, 2013, and is being developed by Little i Apps (as you are probably aware developed – Missio, Rediscover Catholicism and the Confession app). Following the Words with Jesus App…will be 4 more Apps — Words with…Mary, St. Paul, St. Therese, and St. Teresa of Avila (just for starters as the possibilities are endless). These will all be 99 cent Apps – with the hope and desire to be able to offer some for free. Each will be optimized for all devices that run Android and iOs operating systems.
I’ve launched a crowd funding campaign on GoFundMe.com – and am looking for help in spreading the word. The link is http://www.gofundme.com/ReconciledToYou and my ministry website is www.ReconciledToYou.com . I pray you will consider looking over these sites and sharing this initiative on your blogs. Little i Apps is scheduled to being production on Sept. 1st, so time is a little of the essence. I recently had the pleasure of spending 10 days in Rio for World Youth Day where I witnessed millions of teens and young (and yes even older) adults on their phones – even ignoring the warnings of having them stolen so as to not be connected. I believe in this idea, and the fruit of faith it can bear, if I can just get it into the market.
Thank you in advance for your consideration in this matter. It is so very much appreciated!!
God’s Many Blessings
