  • My life is forever changed Sep 11, 2020

    By Stephchildoftheblessedmother
    I absolutely loved FORMED. I believe it has completely changed my faith to where I am such on fire. I feel like the Holy Spirit is really guided me in this area and FORMED has been the Avenue. I am so grateful to the people who founded the Augustine Institute with the online platform and inspiration. I tell all I can think of about it and I try to get them to sign up and even if they are not Catholic. I feel like it pertains to all Christians in every aspect. And I also believe that The Holy Spirit wants us to all be one. Jesus wants us To be one in the body of Christ. My favorite ones...hard to just pick a few because love so many but I love Timothy Gray, Scott Hahn and you can’t hardly beat so many of the things on here Chris Stephnick is incredible. These people are inspired inspired by the Holy Spirit and I am so thankful for them. If you are trying to decide it it’s worth it to get formed it’s not even a debate I promise you will not regret a moment. The more and more I learn the more and more I want to learn. When my daughters get a little older one is 23 months the other is 2 months I might re-evaluate going back to school with something taking online. I already have my masters in unrelated field in healthcare but I love listening and learning on here cannot get enough.

    The app doesn't have a tab to navigate in an easier way. Is scrolling down and down on the "Explore" tab, but there's no tab to show me all the topics, or all the sections. I also don't understand why I need to receive an email every time I want to watch in a different device... I love the content and the quality of the work, but the app has some drawbacks that could be fixed!

  • Easy bridge between me and God Jun 28, 2020

    By JennMacD
    In my busy life I find it hard to sit and read a book on spirituality, or hard to pray set prayers for long stretches at a time. Sometimes, even at Mass, my mind wanders and I miss the message. I feel “occupied” with life and I don’t want to pray. Using FORMED is like finding an oasis in a dry expanse. I can find books on audio for the car or while I get ready in the morning - like the Advent audio “Meditations On the Art of Waiting by Mary Francis” was soooo helpful relieving my stress as I wrapped presents at Christmas. Watching saint movies with my kids, or opening important topics to discuss with my teens through YDisciple, FORMED bridges a gap I’m sometimes at a loss to know how to cross. Even encouragement for my marriage is a result of FORMED. Vastly more important than helping my family relationships, FORMED brings me closer to God. I can feel His presence and hear His leadings after I’ve meditated on the application of something I’ve heard or seen on FORMED. I’m hungry and have the strength, the desire to seek after God once my soul has been touched by one of the shows in FORMED. And at times, I need all the help I can get!!!

    I've been using Formed for over a year. It has lifted me up out of struggles and encouraged me. I'm learning more about my faith then ever. There is something for everyone. I love this Catholic content. However, I've encouraged my Christian friends to subscribe because it's all relevant to our journey. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT. When I first got it, I downloaded a book to listen to while I travelled. Tears streaming down my face .. God spoke to me and healed me in that moment. Thank you <3

  • Lectio Bible Studies May 23, 2020

    By Wapato Wordy
    Our women’s study group is using the Lectio series for our Bible Study. We started with Mark. The fine art that is included in the workbook is fantastic. The questions are thought provoking and easy to share. Dr. Tim Gray is the most excellent teacher. He is so easy to listen to and challenges us to go deeper in our relationship with God. His explanation of the paintings is amazing as he draws us into the current lesson and helps us to understand Scripture. We also love his sense of humor as well as the connections that are made between the Old and New Testament. Awesome! We are currently going through “Prayer” for the second time. This lecture series is so rich that it takes more than once to begin to catch all the profound lessons that are contained in each half hour talk. We hear something new every time. We have ordered the Study Guides for two more of Tim Gray’s lectures. We hope he continues to offer more. You can’t beat all that Formed has to offer. Every Catholic who is interested in deepening their faith will find something of interest in the fine productions of The Augustine Institute.

    I really love FORMED. Last year it was recommended at church in the weekly pamphlet. I made an account and absolutely love it. My mom and I would occasionally watch shows here. I definitely like the app better than log in through my laptop which has some lag time at times. And the app is much easier to use, and it's right there in my pocket when I want to continue watching. I like that it also offers some of the programs in Spanish. Absolutely recommend this app.

  • A library of encouraging resources Mar 20, 2020

    By jcwords
    I have used and enjoyed Formed since our parish signed up a couple of years ago. I’ve read ebooks, watched various bible studies and films, and enjoyed special devotions for Lent and Advent. It has been a blessing. I would like to see more resources on Catholic Social Teaching as I believe it would guide me as I seek to do my part in this broken, beautiful world. I appreciate the very short series with the Brother who draws so effectively (Brother Mickey?), and I would like to those in the parish. But I also need more in-depth resources for my own study. One thing I’ve found frustrating in recent months is that the app logs me out between uses (not every time; just sometimes). To get back in requires an email address, a visit to an email inbox, and a click on a link. It’s obviously doable, but when I have a just a few minutes or am on my phone, it’s a lot of steps and especially on my phone where I can’t see as well, I leave and read something else. I would appreciate a simpler process or just not getting logged out. Overall, though, I enjoy Formed and find it helpful.

  • So many sites, so little time! Apr 17, 2020

    By child in a candy shop
    We go to Formed for many different programs, and find the Truth and the Story of our Faith so well-presented. Practicing our Faith at home and celebrating the sacraments and devotions and attending enriching discussion groups at Church has been made more meaningful and has brought us closer to Jesus. So thank you, Augustine Institute. Wish there were more time to participate in everything you offer, although the stay-home situation has allowed us to explore more lately. Four stars because it would be helpful to access a table of contents to see a printed list of all the programs that you offer, arranged in categories and be able to click and go right to the one wanted. Some of the video covers are hard to read when searching. That said, thank you for quality programs by wonderful, gifted presenters and excellent unique graphics for each series helping us to locate the one we need and leading us beautifully through the talks.

  • Content Delivery Glitches Feb 9, 2021

    By Lllllllllllllllllllllllllolllllllolllllllllllllll
    Love everything but the app glitches. I have deleted and added it back several times but can’t get a daily email for Daily Reflections. Even trying to search for it doesn’t always work. It isn’t going to junk, it just isn’t there. However Dr. Gray’s guidance, background information and explanations are so clear and ring so true it is worth it to persevere. I listen and read Fr. Barron (sometimes over my head and elitist sounding), Fr. Mike, (just a bit more youth oriented) and Matthew Kelly, (Catholic Light). All of these men offer words and thoughts that bring me closer to God, that resonate depending on the day. But Dr. Gray is so authentic and understandable (for me) it is a daily blessing for which I am most grateful. The ability to read and/or listen is also appreciated.

  • Great content, app needs more features Aug 10, 2019

    By cpl116
    The content here is really terrific, but using the app can be frustrating. It’s a pretty bare bones streaming service which works fine if you sit down to watch/listen to a whole show at once. But heaven help you if you get interrupted and need to find your place again after the app restarts. This really needs a “recently watched” list, a “continue watching” list, and a “to watch” list. Ideally this would be stored in your account so it could be accessed from the browser version too. I’d also like to be able to search within a content type, for instance searching for a keyword and returning only podcast results or only video results. I really like the content but I am spoiled by other streaming services and podcatchers which really put this one to shame in terms of ease of use and keeping track of what you have and haven’t played.
