Technology enables us to be forces for good in the world, but sometimes it distracts us from being present in our families.
M. Russell Ballard noted, “Handheld devices, such as smartphones, are a blessing, but they can also distract us from hearing the ‘still, small voice’ [of the Spirit]. They need to be our servants, not our masters.”
Heather Johnson, a family and relationship coach and mother of six, offers suggestions for families learning how to get the most out of technology and how to avoid becoming slaves to its distracting nature.
