eZine #64: What’s Your Cell Phone Doing for You?
November eZine: Digital Delight or Distraction—What’s your cell phone doing for you?
Notifications nudge us every minute. Each beep, squawk, buzz and vibration on our device beckons us to return to our online world. It’s a sort of alternate reality that is absorbing more and more of our real-life moments. Electronic engagement continues to grip us with mounting entanglement. And it seems the younger the consumer, the greater the grasp. This month, we’ll take a look at the pervasive and growing negative impact that our electronics are having on our lives and look at ways we can move towards media moderation, placing limits not only on our children’s “screen-time” but on our own as well.

Introducing Dr. Dave Currie, the President, Founder and heart behind Doing Family Right and the DFR Care Centre. He has been engaged in helping people for nearly 40 years. Counselling has always been his passion. “I so deeply enjoy those moments in people’s lives when God turns the light on as His truths about life and marriage sink in. I love having front row seats to seeing God work miracles in relationships, and seeing couples come with nothing positive happening between them and leaving with a warmth and hope in their eyes. I have no greater joy than seeing life transformation.” Learn more about Dr. Dave HERE
