HOLY WEEK Challenge: True Freedom

Last year when we kicked off our inaugural #SmartFreedom Challenge, I had no idea what a burden, what an addiction, what a misery I had created for myself by scrolling and refreshing and checking and rechecking my life away. The difficulty of each challenge made my attachment apparent and palpable.

I had not really thought of a Top Ten list for resolutions or best practices, or life-survival, or general advice for all of my nieces and nephews, but I am so glad to be asked. This week's Weekly Challenge i
