Shortly after saying to Jeannie in 2004, "Does it get any better than this?", Gerard and Jeannie went through a period of intense brokenness, following the suicide of their seventeen-year-old son Alex. Jeannie lost her faith for two years and, apart from God’s grace, their marriage would have failed. During this period, Gerard received a revelation of eternity which helped him to journey through a season of terrible pain and suffering. Through some supernatural touches from God, Jeannie came back to faith in Christ and they triumphed in their marriage. After this Gerard and Jeannie have created a lot of valuable assets like books, apps, websites etc to help people create a relationship with God through their ministry Awakening to God (ATG).

Problem Faced

There is no app available currently that would help people to spend time in the presence of God by studying the scripture, journal the learning, record thanksgiving, memorize scripture, evening journals to record the day, sharing with friends and family, etc. ATG wanted to create an app with those features to help people in their walk with God.


To create an app having a devotional journal to help you enjoy your walk with God, with thanksgiving from your heart, everyday touches, and prayers. Inspiration for 8 minutes with God at the start of your day, learning to hear his voice, memorize scripture, pray, and journal. Lots of great ideas to build your faith, share scripture, encourage others, and strengthen family devotions.

1) now you can journal your walk with God on your Smartphone, Tablet, etc
