Technology brings many benefits to our lives. But excessive screen time can create a flat, one-dimensional existence. We were made for the rich, three-dimensional experience of relationship with God and one another. So, while technology is great for some types of communication, it is no substitute a for real-world, face-to-face connection.
Do you control your devices or are they starting to control you? How about your family? In a culture where everyone seems more “connected” than ever, how do we nurture real connection with the most important people in our lives?
Replace negative technology habits with healthy patterns by connecting 3D:
- Disconnect to Connect: Choose specific times and locations to consistently disconnect from devices in order to connect with God, family and friends.
- Deepen Internal Values: Model and coach your family toward God-honoring technology habits.
- Develop External Boundaries: Find and set the right safety and accountability strategy for yourself and everyone in your home.
