Devotional Text Messages!

Here's a really cool way to get devotionals sent right to your phone, through text messaging! Who said all texting was bad?

Brio and Breakaway magazines have teamed up to create a daily devotional text for teens - MyFaith Daily Devotions, it’s a daily faith boost direct to your phone. The devotions are written by Mike from Breakaway and Susie from Brio.

How:
  1. “dial” 27138
  2. in the message field type “myfaith” (one word, no capitalization, no punctuation or quotes)
  3. press send
  4. when you get a message back be sure to text back the word “yes” so that they know you really did request to join the group. (it’s called opting in)
Starting the next morning(ish) you’ll get a short thought, verse or challenge to help you stay spiritually on track that day.

Standard messaging rates apply so you will either be charged per message (5 incoming per week) or if you have unlimited texting you’re good to go because they are not Premium texts and won’t cost any extra.

If you have a signature, be sure to erase it from your activation message, otherwise, it won't work.

This is a great opportunity to get a spiritual boost every day! Get involved!

Are there certain hours I need to text between? Is it available outside the U.S? It's not working for me :(

If I don't want to receive the spiritual messages on my phone anymore, what do I do?

Hi, I'm having trouble getting it to work also. Any suggestions? Is this still valid? I have a group of teens anxious to get started.

hi, when i tried sending my text, it didn't work. every time i send "myfaith", it says: the keyword 'myfaith' could not be found. make sure you entered the keyword correctly and try again.

idk what to do. i have no signature...

what does it mean when you get a text back that says "poll has received maximum number of responses" after you answered yes to the initial text?

You can also receive text or sms devotionals through socialfaith.org. plust they come at the time you want them to come.

Hey everyone! I'm sorry I didn't realize there were so many responses to this post!

Unfortunately, Brio and Breakaway magazines were discontinued about two years ago, and as a result the text messages stopped. I hate that it had to happen, because I loved getting them each day on my phone. Sorry about any confusion this may have caused!
