Dear Graceway Families,

We know that navigating technology in today’s world can be challenging for families. With devices everywhere, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure about the best way to integrate technology into our lives. That’s why we’re excited to share insights from Andy Crouch’s book, The Tech-Wise Family: Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in Its Proper Place. This book is a valuable resource that encourages us to reclaim real life in a world dominated by devices.

Talk About this One Thing:

“How do you feel technology impacts your time with family?”

Continue the Conversation:

Making Technology Work for Your Family: Andy Crouch reminds us that making good choices about technology is more than just using internet filters or setting screen-time limits. It’s about building character, wisdom, and courage in our families. Consider discussing with your family how you can prioritize real-life interactions over digital distractions.

Practical Steps for a Tech-Wise Home: The book encourages parents to focus on developing heart, mind, soul, and strength, rather than settling for the ease and instant gratification that technology offers. Check out this SCREEN Guide to start making small, meaningful changes in your household.

Family Challenge: Try implementing a tech-free time each day. Use this time to connect, play games, read, or simply talk. This can help foster deeper relationships and create lasting memories.

Memory Verse: Memorize 1 Corinthians 6:12 together as a family: “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.


See you Sunday!
