31-Day Phone Challenge - Day 29


We’ve talked about a lot of things this month. You might have decided that you don’t have a problem with your phone use. But if you are like most women I talk to, you see room for improvement.

So what's next?

You might want to streamline your time online. Maybe unsubscribe from email newletters or unfollow people on social media to help manage the digital clutter. It might be a good goal to take a few minutes on the first day of every month decluttering your phone from apps that are draining your time.

Or maybe you need something more radical. I admire those who have chosen to get rid of their smart phone and go back to a dumb phone. Or who have their social media apps blocked for all but a few hours on Saturday. Or disabled their phone from ever getting onto Youtube.

Only you can know where your problem area lies and what might be a good solution. Do you need more accountability? A regular fast from your phone? Or just a bit more moderation?

But one thing I do know is that we all need more of the Word of God. I haven’t talked to anyone who wishes they spent less time in their Bible.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Colossians 3:16

Today’s Challenge: Review the challenges from the last few weeks and brush up the ones you missed. Remind yourself that this isn’t just to make your life miserable. Our goal in controlling our phones is to get more of the riches of God’s Word and less of the world’s rot.

  1. These challenges have been really good for me. I'm almost sorry to see them go.


I love to hear from you.
