I attend a Network church of Life.Church (formerly known as Lifechurch.tv, so I have been a long-time Craig Groeschel fan. #Struggles focuses on the struggle to follow Jesus in a society obsessed with selfies and social media.

In Craig’s typical style, this book is an easy read. 

Can we engage in the endless stream of social media and at the same time keep our eyes on Christ?

As a blogger, and since I do all the social media for my church, I am CONSTANTLY on social media. It is a constant battle to keep it in a healthy balance. This book revealed a lot of negatives that I didn’t even notice creeping into my life from social media. The subconscious need for “likes” and friends, and the power we give those things in our lives.

We aren’t designed by God to seek the image of others. We are designed to seek him.

I have a teenage daughter, and while I may struggle with some insecurities centered around social media, it is a war zone for the hearts of our children. I once saw her participate in a “like my status and I will rate you” poll, and was blown away that even my child was insecure enough to ASK to be rated. 

#Struggles addresses a lot of the problems that social media can cause, from being a time-suck, to gossip. If you are on social media, or have kids who are, I definitely recommend this book. I am passing my copy onto my daughter. She’d gotta love a book that has a hashtag in the title. (Click here to snag a copy)
