It seems that we live in a world of constant turmoil. If it isn't war inundating the media then it is Mother Nature waging her own battle. The aftermath of each of these disasters is often jaw dropping because we witness the absolute control of Mother Nature and the lack of control that we have over such catastrophes.
But through each of these disasters we often see that the kindness of humanity prevails. A friend of mine is currently in Joplin delivering supplies to families affected by the Tornado. Her photos portray a picture of hope, strength, and the true desire to help those in need.

It seems kind of silly now to transition to another challenge after seeing those pictures, but the show must go on.
This week's challenge is to do a family technology detox for one weekend.

Don't think you can do it? Well, here are a few helpful tips for starting and maintaining a family tech detox.
I would love to hear what you and your family plan on doing with all your free time once the tv is off and the video games are put away!
