About this app

Even the busiest life has down-moments each day. Wouldn’t it be great to harness some of those lost minutes to get pointers and see patterns for living a different way? What if you could access timeless truths anywhere, anytime in mere moments—and conveniently meditate on God’s word throughout the day?

COMMENDED offers a single Bible verse with quick-read, practical reflections for your journey with God—delivered to your smartphone daily.
Exploring passages from every Book in both Old and New Testaments (including lesser-knowns like Obadiah and Titus), Dr. Daniel A Brown makes Kingdom principles easy to see and apply. His perspectives from decades of scripture-informed experience, also teach you how to find those principles yourself!

“After rededicating my life to Christ in 1970, I began reading five Bible chapters each day, and I got in the habit of selecting one verse to think about from what I read. Only much later did I learn that was what people called ‘meditating on God’s word.’ COMMENDED helps you follow that same pattern.” ~Daniel A. Brown, PhD

This app isn’t intended to replace your regular Bible reading, or to supplant your connection to a local church and its leaders. But if you want to develop a daily pattern of Scripture meditation, COMMENDED will focus you and give you a boost.
COMMENDED demonstrates how/why “whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope” (Romans 15:4).


o Daily Devotions: Start out reading today’s devotion, and then go back to past devotions to catch-up on ones you have missed!

o Favorite, Notes, and Share: You can mark any devotion you like as a “favorite,” enabling you to find it quickly in the future. Writing notes on what you’re learning gives added richness to your daily devotions. You can even share devotions with friends and family.

o Seminars: Listen to free seminars by Daniel on topics like: discipleship, the fruit of the Spirit, marriage, and more!

o Reminders: Set up a reminder in the app to get into the routine of reading each day.

Everyday there's a well-written, Spirit-led word for me. God has used this platform to help me grow in my knowledge of the word, and has used it for confirmation multiple times. I absolutely recommend this app to my friends and family.
