Text is overwriting itself instead of continuing on next line

I must have changed something unknowingly, but now when I write out text, it never skips to the next line and instead creates a second layer of text over the first one.  I tried to create line breaks manually, but it creates the same problem whenever the site is viewed on mobile. 

Anyone know how to reverse this problem?  

Attached is my text with manual line breaks, and how the same page looks on phone view.

You've accidentally set the the paragraph line height to .1em instead of 1.25em. This means that your paragraphs don't have a height, and instead they overlap. 

You should be able to correct this in the font style settings. For more details, see Changing Fonts
