Game Time

We have been playing a lot more games in our household lately.

Scott and I made the decision to reduce screen times in our house. We all have a problem with it. It is a constant battle all day long. Social media and other things like it fight for our attention. They are fun things, for the most part. But they are distracting.

I have really felt convicted about this lately. We had a great discussion in my Sunday School class and I felt God tugging at my heart. Where should my focus be? -on God -on my family....
Not on the Internet.

My boys are playing too many video games. They are now restricted on the time they get each day. We had a limit set before but were very lenient with it. Not any more.

This is the last month we will have cable. I enjoy some of the extra channels we have but not all the extra garbage that comes along with them. This is for financial reasons too, which I will discuss at a later time.

We have Netflix. We will keep our Internet connection but limit our use. Restricted video games. We have lots of board games. We have a big yard.

I'm looking forward to the change.

Anyone else having similar feelings?
