TV Fast – No Netflix – No Directv

This summer, my bride and I have decided to be crazy and shut off our TV.

Beginning Saturday, we paused Directv for two straight months. Beginning today, Netflix will be paused for two straight months.

While this will certainly help out the budget, we made this decision because of a much more important commodity: “time”

More specifically: “focused, uninterrupted, and undistracted time with the family”

I’ll spend my 15 minutes every day to check my 78 web sites using the Internet, of course.

Besides, baseball is boring and always equals a nap.

Have you ever done something like this? How did it go?

    A great idea! I’ve worked in television for over 40 years and the days of “Father Knows Best” are over. Fasting the tube will give you a better perspective on life. I encourage everyone to reduce TV time and put that time to better use for the Lord and family!

    I recently took a week off of TV and it was amazing! I was able to have quality time with my wife and just pull away to focus on the things that matter.
