My guest this week is Grace Wagler and we are discussing why Grace made the decision to delete her social media. Find out how her life has changed without the constant pull of her socials, how she has since filled her time, and what advice she would give to other homemakers considering doing the same.
Social media can often be a double-edged sword. On one hand, it can be a great tool to keep up with friends and family, on the other, it can lead to online addiction, unhealthy levels of comparison, and endless time wasted.
Pour another cup of coffee or tea and be encouraged for the next 50 minutes. The resources mentioned in this podcast can be found below.

Please share, if this would encourage another.
This was so very encouraging. SO much of it resonated with me.
I left Facebook for two separate years and found that time to be so fruitful and meaningful. I recently deleted both FB and IG but started an account on Gab and have found myself sucked in once again. It is definitely a balancing act for me, but these insights were really helpful. Thank you!
You’re welcome! Social media is such a draw. I understand your struggle so much!
