In this episode, we dive deep into the essential aspects of living a life that's present, intentional, and aligned with our true purpose. Today we are chatting with Mason King, the author of "A short guide to Spiritual Disciplines" about how we can steward tech in our daily lives (because it isn't going away) to have a healthier walk with God.

Here's what you'll discover:

  1. Dethroning the Digital Savior: How technology can become an addiction, and why it's essential to recognize our attention as our most precious commodity. Learn how to regain control over your digital life and break free from the dopamine loops that keep you hooked.

  3. Strategies for Presence: From using apps like Freedom to block distractions to setting specific times for email and social media, discover practical ways to be more present with your family and in your life.

  4. Praying the Hours: A unique approach to prayer that helps you stay connected with God throughout the day, processing emotions and aligning your actions with your faith.

  5. Reading the Bible with Joy: Moving beyond the "check-off-the-box" mentality to a more intimate, face-to-face time with God through Scripture. Learn about techniques like Lectio Divina and how poetry can enrich your spiritual life.

  6. Remembering Mortality: The concept of "Memento Mori" and how keeping death in mind can lead to a more intentional and fulfilling life.
