Fellow Faith Nerds,
Distraction Detox: Dropping the Distractions that Keep Us from a Rich, Fulfilling Life in Christ is my new eBook aimed at helping people identify and overcome distractions so they can make the most out of the life they’ve been given.
According to John 10:10 (NLT), “Jesus said, ‘The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.’” In this book I explain that one way Satan tries to detract from our lives is by robbing us of some of our most precious resources: our focus and our time. Jesus himself dealt with distractions and shunned them at all costs in order to fulfill his mission on earth, and part of being like him means doing the same.
I wrote Distraction Detox in response to the distractions I felt holding me back in my own life. I was ambitious in a number of ways, but quickly found out there’s little power in ambition without focus. And my ambitions weren’t just career related either! I had a vision for my family, my finances, my friendships, and my faith-walk, and each of those things required me to lose the dead-weight of distractions.
This short book serves as a well-timed warning to those who are becoming increasingly engrossed in the distractions tugging at them from the worlds of entertainment, technology, and elsewhere: godly dreams are achieved by those who keep their eye on Jesus and the good things he has for them. I hope you find it helpful!
Love, in Christ,
Jeff Schapiro (The Faith Nerd)
