About this Episode

A chat with Alex Jones, co-founder and CEO of Hallow, the #1 Catholic app for prayer, meditation, music, and sleep. From the introduction to Hallow: "This is the idea behind Hallow: provide a simple, easy-to-use mobile app that helps us foster a relationship with God and the peace of prayer through guided prayer and meditation. Hallow is a simple way to create a daily, personal retreat each morning for you in your home. The idea isn’t to invent new ways to pray, but rather to bring to the world the enormously rich pool of contemplative prayer methods that already exist within the Christian faith today."

  • "My Journey From Atheist to Maybe a Christian Pt. 1" — "...my faith journey has been one of re-discovery. The first step for me in this re-discovery was mostly intellectual: the cracking open of the door to the possibility that this whole Christianity thing might not all be nonsense."
  • "My Journey From Atheist to Maybe a Christian Pt. 2" — This post is a continuation of the discussion that began in an earlier blog post about my journey toward becoming a Christian. It picks up where the first left off.
  • The 9 Books That Helped Make Me a Christian — I’ve broken these 9 books across 3 phases of my faith journey so far: discovering my faith, diving deeper, and learning to live it out. I am very much still in the midst of each of these steps, so if you have any recommendations please send them my way by commenting below or emailing me at [email protected].
  • "Why We Made Hallow a Public-Benefit Corp" — No model is perfect, and the Public Benefit-Corp doesn’t solve all of our concerns. But after a lot of prayer and discussions with both start-up and spiritual advisors, we decided it was the best structure for Hallow. It gives us the best ability to build a world-class team and product, achieve our mission of helping the world to pray, and assure that growing profitably never comes ahead of our mission.
