Is Your Smartphone Habit a Problem?

Count the Cost...

If you Lose Hours scrolling and clicking on your phone and feel restless when separated from it ... ,

What toll is  it taking on your loved ones?

Do you want something better?

Do you and your family use digital media to enrich your shared experience,
or for escape and distance?

​Are you giving your time and attention to the people and pursuits that matter most to you…
or to a habit that will ultimately leave you empty?

Do you feel connected with your purpose,
fulfilled by your choices, … 
or distracted?
