About "#Struggles"

Today's 24/7 connected online world has amazing upsides, but also can send our lives out of control. LifeChurch.tv pastor Craig Groeschel draws on up-to-date studies on social media as he examines the effects of online life on our real lives, and offers ways to stay authentically Christ-centred.

We all love the benefits of technology and social media, but even with the incredible upsides, many of us suspect there are unintended negative consequences that are beyond our control. We've lost perspective, even perhaps ourselves. In this timely and life-changing new book, New York Times bestselling author and pastor of LifeChurch.tv Craig Groeschel encourages readers who are hungry to regain control over their lives and put Christ first again. He walks them through biblical values that all Christ followers know are essential, but are even more important for our maxed out, selfie-centered world. The more you compare, the less satisfied you are. The more we interact online, the more we crave face to face intimacy, but the harder it is to find. The more filtered our lives become, the more challenging it is to be authentic. The more information about the pain in the world we're exposed to the more difficult it is to care. It's time to refresh and rediscover our understanding of the biblical principles that life with Christ brings: contentment, intimacy, authenticity, compassion, rest and more.Groeschel taps in to some of the most up-to-date studies on the effects of social media on our emotions and our friendships. And he offers real-life examples of how we struggle with social media, how it masks our real struggles, and how we can reclaim a Christ-centered life. With helpful appendices like the 10 Commandments of Using Social Media to Strengthen Your Faith, and Creating Safeguards for Your Digital Devices, you'll find #Struggles to be just the guide to bring balance and real-life engagement to your everyday life.

So relevant
5 stars By Georgina T, Jun 27 2016
Highly recommend this book! 
For anyone who feels anxious when leaving the room without their phone, loves their selfies, and for those who base their self esteem on the amount of 'likes' they get. This book will surely challenge your reliance on social media and technology, and identify one of the reasons why as a society we are less happy!  Give it a whirl!

4 stars By Hannah, Apr 09 2016
With our generation being on our smart phones for an average of 4 years in our entire lifetime, this book felt like an essential read. Craig Groeschel doesn't hate on technology, however goes through the steps we need to work on in order to balance it in our everyday lives so that it doesn't consume us. He goes back to basics of putting God first in our lives and interacting with technology and social media in an effective way to get rid of any addictive behaviours we might have...like looking at our phones 100x a day!
