I will Fight...

Hey K2 Kanakuk Friends,
Well, I feel like sometimes I have a soap box on Social Media and the Effects of "Shallowing" the next generation...and by sometimes I mean I could go off about it all the time.

I am not a hater at all...hence you are reading this on a blog where you possibly clicked over from Facebook. I am a moderation, healthy user of it. My biggest fear each summer is more and more I am seeing teenage girls, YOU, not able to have healthy face to face interaction with your peers or older adults. You overshare through a keyboard but can't have a polite conversation to your elder. You twitter your opinions and heart but yet can't look someone in the eye to TALK to them.

I will always fight this. I don't want facebook to be over or twitter to be gone...I just don't want to have a generation of youth that can't or doesn't know how to function without feeling like their life is a real TV show and they are the STAR. You aren't.

So today check your heart when you add a  picture of yourself in a bikini...why? Check your healthy radar of social media when you are spending more time on twitter than you are on homework or being outside? Realize that something could be a bit off if all during dinner at your home there are beeps, dings, rings and tweet sounds that distract from a dinner table where America was built.

Side note: mommas and daddies create "cell phone free zone" at your it! Maybe for you too...

Social media is not bad...but is it creating something in us that is?

Be awesome & Love Jesus,
