I like to start with something personal, so please bear it with me!
I was born in a Christian family and I spent my childhood bonding with fellow members of the church. However, as I grew up, I started having lots of questions. Eventually, I felt a deep spiritual hunger and unfortunately, I couldn’t find the answers in the traditional churches I went to. Until one day, when I had my very first encounter with God. He opened my eyes to His truth and I saw His light and realized His everlasting love for all of us. I understood the real message and meaning of both the Bible and Christianity. We are not called to a religion but rather to a true and close relationship with God.
During my spiritual experiences with God, I’ve learned that there are three types of believers (according to me): the Sunday-church attendees, the deeply-committed believers and the ones in the middle. Ever since these “encounters”, I’ve been deeply committed to learning more about God. I wanted my spiritual eyes and ears to be opened and for my relationship with God to grow. I also wanted the Holy Spirit to make me understand everything and to lead me in every aspect of my life. It was time for my life to change. However, it was not easy for me to grow closer to God, especially when living in a fast-paced and ever-growing world of technology.
How could I meditate on God’s word when I was always connected with my smartphone, camera, laptop and computer?
I’m not here to stop you from using these gadgets. I’m just here to help a fellow believer in making the best choice. I want to share with you how I used today’s gadgets to grow closer to God.

This, my friends, is a great way to spread the word of God using today’s technology.
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
– From Matthew 28:18-20

Rocketbook Smart Reusable Notebook
This is not really a Biblical gadget, but this built-for-the-digital-age notebook can certainly be used for Biblical purposes.
We all have an anointing from the Spirit, which means that we can experience a deep revelation from God anytime and anywhere. However, most of the time, it can be unexpected and we are not able to write it down given the unavailability of resources at that particular time. But, this 36 page dotted grid notebook is about to change this.
This notebook is not like any other; it is made up of sophisticated AI technology and a wipe-clean feature.
