Description

While most of her peers were obsessed with their iPhones, Instagramming and Snapchatting their lives, and glued to streaming TV, nineteen-year-old Amy Crouch was growing up with minimal technology. In My Tech-Wise Life, she and her father, Andy Crouch, share how intentional and controlled use of modern devices, apps, and services has helped her avoid many of the negative experiences of her peers and cultivate positive experiences interacting with the real world. With writing that connects on a teen-to-teen level, Amy and Andy unpack tech temptations--such as the temptation to distract ourselves from any potentially boring or awkward situation, or to stay up-to-date with every notification and trend--and then offer antidotes that lead to more patience, wisdom, honesty, and wonder in life. If you're in high school or college and devices and social media are affecting your friendships and family life, your sense of self-worth, or even how well you think you know yourself, this book will help you reevaluate your relationship with technology--and renew your relationship with the world around you.
