Digital Detox? Say what?
How many of you have just broken out in a cold sweat? Or are already beginning to have withdrawals?
Wait! Are you asking me to give up my phone? not scroll social media? Give up TV? Not steam Netflix, Disney+, or my favorite streaming platform? Or all of the above?!?!
I can hear you all saying, “Now just wait a minute here! Let’s not go crazy!”
The truth is, many of us may need a digital detox as much as our children do. When I was first contacted about having Molly on the podcast, I thought, now this is an interesting topic. I have watched my own children, become addicted to digital media and video games, but I had no idea how to really solve the problem longterm. Yes we limited screen time and game playing time, but beyond that I didn’t really have much of a strategy. Maybe as a parent you feel the same?
Well, don’t fear, Molly is here! That’s right, Molly DeFranks new book: “Digital Detox” is just what you need to not only help your kids get free from the toxicity of digital media, but it can help you too. The truth is, we adults have a problem with digital media too.
I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with Molly and reading her book. It was practical, down to earth, and had step-by-step instructions and helpful hints to help break you, your kids, and your entire family free from the constrains of digital and social media. It’s time to put digital and social media in its proper place.
Episode # 163 Digital Detox ~ Molly DeFrank
Mom of six, Molly DeFrank was sick of screen-time meltdowns. She wanted more for her family, so she pulled the plug, declaring a digital detox for her kids. The transformation blew her away. As if parenthood weren’t stressful enough, parents in 2022 are wading through entirely new challenges that didn’t exist for any previous generation. We are drowning in digital entertainment and distractions. Kids are literally addicted to and spend HOURS each day staring at screens and taking in images and messages – from who knows where. The book and plan are highly practical, not just philosophical, with worksheets, checklists and more. It’s a bridge between this pervasive problem and a long-term solution. It also offers readers long-term plans to overhaul their family’s reliance on screens.

YouVersion 7-Day Devotional
I am blessed and honored to have a 7-day devotional on the YouVersion Bible App. YAY!!! It is a great way to kick start the 7- days before my on-line Bible Study starts next week. I would be so blessed if you would check it out and share it with your friends. You can find it here: Be The Gift Someone Needs Today!
Have you had the opportunity to read my new book “The Gift of Prophetic Encouragement: Hearing the Words of God for others.” ? This book is about learning to hear the voice of God in our own life so we can respond to those God bumps and little nudges He gives us on a daily basis. God is calling us to be agents of encouragement and to be the gift the worlds needs today.
We live in a time, where those around us are in desperate need of a real encounter with Jesus and in need of encouragement. We are called to encourage one another daily (Hebrews 3:13), and to build each other up (1 Thessalonians 5:11). My book will teach you how to step out and do just that.
We all have the opportunity to #BeTheGift of encouragement others need today.
A practical guide to what it looks like and how to live a lifestyle of prophetic encouragement.
Are you Ready to #BeTheGift Someone Needs today?
Words have power.
To encourage. To comfort. To strengthen. To heal.
Especially when they come from God.
The Gift of Prophetic Encouragement Bible Study: Living a Lifestyle of Encouragement shows us how to follow Jesus by loving on and building up His church … one person, and one God-centered word, at a time. Diving deeply into Scripture, Pastor Debbie Kitterman beautifully unpacks the Biblical precedent of prophetic encouragement and teaches you how to hear from God. By doing so, you’ll bravely step into your calling to #BeTheGift others need.
In this stunning six-week study, you will:
- Examine the model of encouragement Jesus established for us.
Define the simple (and Biblical) concept of prophetic encouragement.
Learn to identify and test the voice of God in your life.
Explore activation exercises which strengthen your hearing muscles.
And gain confidence in your calling to build others up
Are you ready for six weeks that will change your life, deepen your relationship with God, and create ripples of encouragement that spread through those around you?
You can visit my store here on the website to order a signed copy.
