Rooted 2017: Kristen Hatton on Reorienting Our Teens to the Truth Social Media Distorts

Synopsis: Walk into a room full of teenagers and quite possibly every one of them will be on their phones, more engaged online than with each other. With so much happening behind the screen it’s hard for parents to keep up, or know what is really going on. And it is easy for teens, seeking an identity in false places, to fall prey to a lifestyle of comparison and the lie of perfection. In this workshop from Rooted’s 2017 conference in Dallas, Kristen Hatton answers the following questions: What will it take to reorient students back to the truth social media distorts? How can we enter in to help them process what they see and evaluate their social media use through a gospel-centered lense? What truths do they need to hear?
