How has the screen influenced your family? On one hand, you may say you want to spend less time on your phone, but actually following through is quite difficult. Screens have infiltrated every area of our lives: communication, work email, directions, Uber, grocery orders, Amazon Prime, apps for your kids, and the list goes on. So, how does a family actually make changes when it comes to screens?

Josh recently deleted a majority of the apps on his phone, practically turning his iPhone into a flip phone. In this episode, Josh and Christi talk about the ways it has been life-giving for their family and share practical ways you can make similar changes.

Josh and Christi talk about:

  • The research on "continuous partial attention" and how it's increasing anxiety in our kids
  • How to let go of the hurry and allow yourself to be inconvenienced in difficult, but freeing, ways
  • Simply acting on your decisions and adjusting your life according to those decisions
