Digital Detox Challenge

When I became a mom, I found myself clinging to my phone.

It became an escape from the mundane or hard parts of life.

Looking at the “outside world” and all the beautiful and entertaining things it had to offer quickly made me resent my new role.

Is this you?

Are you constantly comparing your life to perfectly posed shots on Instagram?

Do you end a long day, not by talking to your husband or filling yourself with the word of God, but vegging out on the endless scroll of Facebook videos?

When your phone alarm goes off in the morning, does it lead to checking your email, then Pinterest, then . . . until the kids wake up?

30 Day Digital Detox Challenge

Let’s start this new year, not by adding a million things to our already busy lives.  Let’s put away the phone, look to Jesus, and learn how to be intentional with our time.

I know that I need a reset to help break these habits, so, on January 1st, I am going to do a 30-day digital detox challenge.  Each week, I will, with the Holy Spirit’s help, do 2 simple things to reduce the amount of time I spend on my phone.

You can participate at anytime during the yeat!  If you want to participate, just subscribe below.  In your welcome email, I will send you a link where you can download a printable of the plan.  I have also included my prayer for the challenge and Bible verses for you to meditate on.

Each week during the month of January, I will send you one short email to check in, give you tips, additional Bible verses, and let you know about my progress.
