Carving out some space for family and grace.
Breaking out of the social media slog.
I have thought about doing this for a while. The ongoing slog represented by the term “social media,” and my engagement with it, has proven far too much to bear as of late. I have been on and off of Twitter and Instagram a few times. I have tried to make Facebook work, which is a task that has proven more difficult that you might, at first, imagine. But despite my initial leisurely connection with those platforms, I have come to realize that they have encroached on too much of my time and energy and have become bloated parts of my life over the years. And now it’s time to make a change. Enough is enough.
In the interest of my own physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being, I am carving out some space for family and grace.
This particular post represents a new chapter in writing and sharing the “true grace of God” (1 Pet. 5:12). I have completely deleted my Twitter presence. I am getting off of Instagram. And I am (for the most part) distancing myself from Facebook. You won’t be seeing a lot of me around those parts. It is my plan to utilize this space to continue sharing family and ministry updates in a more intentional, personable way.
For those of you who have followed me for sometime, don’t fear: the blog and the podcast aren’t going away. However, I will be transferring my entire archive here over the course of the next few weeks. This will become the new home for all my devotional writing (and of www.graceupongrace.net, too).
I am putting the finishing touches on a more lengthy post explaining this transition in a little more detail. It is my prayer that you are able to reap some blessing out of this endeavor — by seeing my family grow and learn and experience new things, while also finding encouragement through my ongoing endeavor to proclaim the timeless truth of God’s “grace upon grace” (John 1:16).
