The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints now offers a website “Become” (become.org) where you can find a new web-based app to help you engage in daily actions to grow closer to God.
- Through simple, self-guided “paths,” you can choose to go through short, engaging activities to learn more about basic spiritual truths.
- In longer experiences called “journeys,” you can choose to dive deeper into spiritual topics through enhanced interactions, scriptures, and sermons.
Whether you choose a path or a journey, you can choose things to enhance your understanding and discover additional perspective and peace. For example, in the path about how Jesus comforts us, you will be asked, “Who could you help comfort this week? Take a moment and think of someone who may be in mourning. Write down their name and select an action you want to commit to this week.”
The topics to engage with include how to pray, serving others, a life of joy, hear God speak, working through disappointment and forgiving others.

“This new web-based app is an important way to help people become better acquainted with God through personal experience—whatever their understanding of Him and wherever they may be on their spiritual journey,” says Elder Marcus B. Nash, a General Authority Seventy and executive director of the Church’s Missionary Department.
The broadly applicable purpose of the Become app connects to teachings given at the most recent general conference by Prophet and President Russell M. Nelson. He asked Latter-day Saints to not only “let God prevail” in their lives, but to also seek those outside the faith who are open to this idea.
