Wants and Needs App – Review

Catholic Mom - reviews Wants and Needs - Gratitude Journal / Diary for iOS!

Thanks to for reviewing Wants and Needs!


I don’t remember entering a store with my one of my children without hearing, “Mom I need this or I need that.” Of course what they meant was, “Mom I want that shiny, perfectly packaged, marketed just for me whatchamacallit… oh and I want it now!”  IF my answer was yes, well then I got lots of ‘thanks’ from said child, until we were finished at the checkout or the toy/candy/whatchamacallit entered the house; from those moments on the attitude of gratitude usually quickly faded. Where it remained until they saw the next something – usually bigger or better – that they absolutely NEEDED! I recognize the behavior because quite honestly I was exactly the same way at their age, and can – I will admit – still be like as I stroll the store today!

I’m not exactly sure what goes amiss in our upbringing that triggers even the best reared kids to confuse wants and needs, or to completely miss the importance to give thanks for what we are given in life. Though, I have to admit, at least in the Gingras home, this is a struggle. So, when presented with the opportunity to test the Wants and Needs App, I swiftly jumped at the chance.  As I scrolled through their website, it became apparent to me, what a fantastic tool this App would be for helping me put God at the center of balancing both the material and spiritual this Lent.
