About this Episode

Social media use can negatively impact teens and young adults, distracting them, disrupting their sleep, exposing them to peer pressure, rumor spreading, and unrealistic views of other’s lives, so they make poor comparisons and decisions. These risks might be related to time spent on social media.

Tune in as Doctors Marie and Greg Seltz interview Peter Ryan, a former Navy Captain with 28 years of active service. He is a happily married husband and father of four. He has studied the effects that screen-based personal technology is having on individuals. He advocates for increased Department of Defense awareness and action regarding the impact of excessive screen use by our military men and women. He authored “Technology, The New Addiction”; which was published in the September 2018 edition of the U.S. Navy Journal, Proceedings.

Remember, there are two kinds of fire in the world: One that burns and consumes and one that burns and empowers. May God's word and God's love burn brightly in you, giving you the strength to face any fire. Until next time, little embers!

Thru the Fire is a production of Family Vision Media, a non-profit ministry committed to helping Christian parents discern the truth in a culture of lies.
