How to Make the Most of the Today Devotional Site

November 23, 2016 • Justin Sterenberg

Last year, we made some changes to the Today website. We are always trying to improve your online experience and we wanted to give you some tips on how to make the most of the Today Devotional Website.

Text Size

If you are reading Today online, and you find the text is too small, we have a solution! Above the author photo, there is an “A” in between a minus (-) and plus (+). Click the plus sign to make the text larger and the minus sign to make the text smaller.

Audio Player

If you want to listen to the devotion, we have a feature on this website that allows you to do so.  Above the title of the devotion, there is a pink bar that has the date and some colorful boxes on it. Look for the red box with the white play arrow. When you put your mouse over it, you will see the word “play.” Click that to listen to the audio for that day's devotion. If you want to download the audio, click the down arrow in the purple box. The audio will begin downloading to your computer.

Devotional Library

To visit the devotional library, go to the top right corner of the page and click on “Devotional Library.” On this page you will see the date, title, and the verse for each devotion. On the left side of the page you can search by topic, author, scripture reference, and keyword. This is a helpful way to find what you are looking for.

Search by Date

If you are looking for devotions on a specific day, month, or year we have a simple solution! On the devotional page, click on the calendar on the left side. You will see it next to the date on the pink bar. When you click on that, a menu appears and you can click the left and right arrows to change the month, day, or year. Then when you have selected a date, click the check mark.

Download a PDF

If you want a PDF version of the whole monthly devotional, you can find it in the devotional library section of the website. Under the weekly calendar, you will see a link that says, “Download This Month’s PDF.” Click that to download the PDF version of Today.

Devotional Blog

The Today website also has a featured blog page. There are posts suggesting devotionals to try, ways to keep up with devotions, how to start a devotional journal and more. Every month we feature two posts about the most recent author of Today. This includes an introduction to the monthly theme and also an interview with the author, which has audio and a transcript.

Today Devotional App

If you want to take Today on the go, download our app! You can read the devotion, listen to the audio, or view the original online post right from the app. There is also a menu on the left side which allows you to submit prayer requests, contact us, or subscribe via email.

If you don’t want to download the app, you can always save the website as a shortcut on your phone’s home screen, and it will function like an app. If this interest you, here are instructions on how to do that:

For iPhone:

  1. Open Safari and go to todaydevotional.com

  2. On the bottom of the screen, you will see a bar with icons in it. Touch the box icon with the up arrow in it

  3. A menu will pop up. Touch the button that says “Add to Home Screen”

  4. You can change the name of the shortcut

  5. A blue icon that says “Today” will appear your home screen

For Android:

  1. Open Chrome for Android and go to todaydevotional.com

  2. Tap the menu button and tap “Add to home screen”
