How to control screens in your home so they don’t control your family

The interest in topics of screen use and screen addiction hasn’t died down from when I first started writing about it in 2014. More and more parents are asking for help. In this post I share 2 things to consider as well as ideas your family can implement beginning today. If your kids are still young, perfect! But if you are far down the path, it’s never too late to make adjustments in order to create the family connections you desire most. Join me for today’s full post.

How This Could Be Your Best Gift + A Sale

For many of us the first thing we reach for in the morning is the phone. God offers to illuminate our day and path, but we choose the illumination of the screen. Something creeps in when we begin our day in the world before the Word.

Many of us struggle to give God the first of our day. We want to start a habit of morning prayer and Bible reading. Our intentions are good, but the distractions win.

I have something that may help you. And it could be the best gift you can give a friend or loved one this Christmas season. Plus I have a sale you don’t want to miss. So join me for today’s post.

We are entering a season of commercialism, materialism, and temptation to overextend and overspend.
I’m entering a season of simplifying as God invites our family into going “all in” with Him. Join me for the rest of today’s post where I share a story of how we’ve seen God move in just the last week alone.

Do I give sacrificially?

Today I’m sharing a video our church made of our testimony. God is so faithful. He’s never failed us and He never will. He continues to stir our hearts to simplify, declutter, and live free in Him. Our prayer is to be a funnel of blessing He can flow through.
