Yesterday, I came across a group called The Maccabeats while researching Hanukkah. They collaborated in a video that I must share with y’all.
Feel free to disregard the Jewish understanding of the Sabbath portrayed in the video, and focus on the phones. Then go and reread the lyrics to “The Sound of Silence.” Our culture has an unhealthy obsession with our phones, and I was so convicted while watching this video that I said, enough!
Our Father has given us every good and perfect gift, such as our children. I want to give them my best, and so I’m going to try to put my phone down while in their presence. This is going to be tough!
I hope y’all have a blessed week, and may you spend a great deal of quality time with your families.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I would love to connect with you on Facebook. I’d also like to invite you to my Mary & Martha Facebook Page, or to look at beautiful and inspiring Mary & Martha home decor. It is a such a blessing to serve you!

Oh, Nicole! This video was lovely. Thank you so much for sharing.
This has been a huge issue for me in our home. Firstly, I do not have a phone, because I’ve seen what it’s doing to our families, and I don’t want to have that addiction in my life… but I do fight against spending too much time on the computer. It’s just SO addictive, and there is so much good stuff out there. Secondly, my husband does have a phone, and he is deeply addicted to it and to social media, though he doesn’t admit it, and gets angry when I have brought it up. I am praying for victory over this area in our family. I feel like families nowadays are just being torn apart by SCREENS, and it just keeps getting worse. Thank you so much for sharing this video – it really expresses my own desire for my family.
You’re welcome! Yes, I always think, “I’m looking at it for good reasons, so it’s okay.” But what I’m missing out on when I do that! Thanks so much for your encouragement!
