Is more of your life consumed by screens than you think is best for you or your family? Is the technology that is supposed to make your life easier actually holding you back?

Former longtime Newport resident Doug Smith invites people to take a positive step toward breaking free from the screens in their lives by joining him for a special event where he will share his new book, “[Un]Intentional: How Screens Secretly Shape Your Desires, and How You Can Break Free.”

This free event will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10, in the fireside room at the Newport Church of the Nazarene, 227 NW 12th St.

Smith, now a resident of Tennessee, will share a few words, some piano music and offer signed books at a great discount. People are invited to start their year with this short, fun and inspiring event that can help them and their families overcome the negative influence of screens in their lives and free them to live out their purpose.
