Do you look at technology as friend or foe? How about when it comes to its role in faith?
In this episode, Paul Colligan, founder of HowtoPodcastBooks.com, discusses practical advice on how to leverage technology for you and your family. He reveals productivity hacks and some of his favorite tools.
Romans 12:1-2: Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
