    About Hayden and Savannah   

    Hayden and Savannah Paul were married on January 24, 2020. Since then they’ve been living in Sandy, Utah. Hayden and Savannah seek to change the conversation surrounding pornography with a focus on de-shaming the problem so true healing can occur. They host a weekly podcast titled “I Stand at The Door.” It’s geared toward helping parents, youth and church leaders understand and navigate the complicated issue surrounding porn. Hayden personally fought a 10-year battle against this struggle and after learning many lessons has now, for over a year, felt the peace and freedom that comes from the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Savannah is a native of Illinois and a returned missionary from the Las Vegas West mission. She finished her degree in nursing at BYU this past April and gave birth to their baby, Walker, a week later. She loves to sing, play the piano, and watercolor. Hayden grew up in Sandy and served his mission in Budapest, Hungary. He is an infantry rifleman in the United States Marine Corp and currently serves in a reserve capacity with 4th LAR Charlie Company. He loves being a dad and throws their baby around more than Savannah would like. Hayden also works for Operation Underground Railroad, an organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of children who are in the bonds of sex trafficking.

    Emily Jones, co-founder of Family Tech University, joins me to talk about the need to go beyond external filters and controls with our children's electronics and, instead, help them develop internal filters. Using powerful metaphors and stories, Emily share her own family's journey and the work she and her husband have done over the past several years building a powerful online educational resource to support parents and children. Our children are required to enroll in drivers ed and spent dozens of hours behind the wheel with a trusted adult before they venture off unsupervised. They created the Internal Filter Workshop to give parents powerful tools to help children navigate the powerful world of computers and smartphones. In this episode, we discuss:


    Why they created Family Tech University
    The concept of children developing their own internal filters versus only using tech to filter
    How parents can nurture this in their homes
    The appropriate balance between using tech and children having their own boundaries
    The most common questions she gets asked by parents when it comes to tech and families

    About Emily Jones Dave is an IT professional with over 20 years of experience, and an outdoor enthusiast. Emily is passionate about mothering, and a published author. Years ago we began work on a sort of "driver's ed for the smartphone" for our children... a precursor to cell phone ownership. Family Tech University exists to strengthen families, with an emphasis on nurturing a young person's heart. Providing young people with powerful information, skills practice, and the opportunity to develop their OWN heartfelt opinions enables them to choose to be wise, of their own free will. The heart of our message? That heroic parents can nurture the internal filter™ of their children, preparing them to make wise choices with technology when they walk out the door... away from digital filters and parental monitoring.Website: https://familytechuniversity.com/ Instagram: @FamilyTechUniversity: https://www.instagram.com/familytechuniversity/ Facebook: Family Tech University: https://www.facebook.com/FamilyTechUniversity
