Scrolling through life – Are we living distracted by screens or focused on life?

How often do I reach for my phone out of boredom, looking for that next hit of entertainment or distraction?

How often do I reach for my phone for the high of escape?

When I don’t feel like listening to one more complaint or argument, I pick it up.

We desire intentional living, but you wouldn’t know from our habits. So we have a choice to make. Will we choose to live life on purpose? Or will we scroll through life instead, missing out on what we may never know we are missing?

Join me for a post that I hope challenges you as it has me to re-evaluate my screen habits.

When time management means learning to become less productive

Time is a gift not a dictator.

I’m a doer, a worker. I love efficiency and productivity. I thrive on accomplishing tasks and seeing my tangible, physical progress. The problem is I work better than I rest. The second problem is that I’m rarely satisfied that my work is complete. I set high bars and expectations and can always “do more”. But for a human being, that is chasing something with no finish line in sight.

Perfection isn’t reality. At some point I must choose ‘good enough’ and be satisfied.

It’s time for time to be handled with care. Join me for the rest of today’s post.

The possible missing link connecting your desire to your reality

Do you ever find you have desires that seem slow to become a reality if they ever do? Enough experiences like that can stop us from continuing to try. Fears of failure begin to take root even. I’ve found in my life there’s something else to discover. A missing piece to the puzzle connecting the desires I have with the reality I experience. If I want different results, maybe it’s time to take different steps? Join me for today’s post.

Be Very Careful the Words You Speak – It’s Life and Death

Did you know that the words we speak with our mouths hold an enormous amount of power to shape lives and create destiny? So often words fly out of our mouths with little thought to the weight they carry forward. God tends to speak to me in themes. I’ve learned to lean in and trust this process. Currently, the theme is the power of our words and our thoughts.

Today I share a couple of stories. One a personal story. The others were passed to me as a listener. The stories I share I’ll never forget and I tell them often to others.

My Thoughts on a New York Times article Raising Children Without the Concept of Sin

You know when you read a sentence you can’t get off your mind. It stops you right where you are and demands your immediate attention. Well, that’s what happened to me when I read an article in The New York Times, which, by the way, I never read.
