I use it for work. I use it for blogging. I use it to kill time.
My phone is my shopping list. Digital calendar.
I rely on it for alarms and reminders.
My phone is ALWAYS in my hand.
And it’s ridiculous.
This week I was fasting with a group of women from my church in preparation for our upcoming retreat. But I realized I was picking up my phone to read my bible app, and before I knew it I was on Facebook and then checking FarmVille. And my emails needed checked andresponded to.
I wasn’t fasting anymore. I was playing with my phone.
So between now and the end of our retreat? My phone is for communication. Specifically phone calls.
I can respond to Facebook messages on my computer. My mom can call instead of text. And snapchat isn’t really necessary.
I have set my lock and homescreen to the following graphic (which you are welcome to download also!)
