In making the announcement, John Temple, President and CEO of Guideposts, said, âOur vision is to build a more optimistic world by developing the spiritual life of our communities. The Abide team shares this vision and helps bring people closer to God through audio meditations and positive and affirmative prayers. This acquisition will allow both teams to significantly expand our impact beyond what either organization could accomplish on its own. ‘
Abide founders Neil Ahlsten and Eric Tse will continue their work on Abide and join the Guideposts team to lead the expansion of its digital products and services. The two quit their jobs in 2014 to create Carpenter’s Code, a small startup located in Silicon Valley.
