Spend just a few minutes on any of the major social media platforms and you’ll find that women are longing for encouragement, hope, purpose, connection, acceptance, and love, but yet, they’re not finding that. Instead, they’re finding story after story that is centered on fear. Terrorist attacks, cancer-causing foods, political worries—the list goes on. But even without external fears to contend with, women are fighting internal battles about their worth and abilities on a daily basis.
Social media encourages people to compare their lives to the ones they see online. Comparison creates a habit of ungratefulness, an attitude of dissatisfaction, and pattern of envy and even judgmentalism. It’s no wonder women leave social media feeling worse rather than better. We’ve got to take charge of this.
As women of faith, we have an online responsibility. If we want to get the most out of social media, we need to learn how to better contribute ourselves. We can choose to be intentional in what we post, what we share, what we comment on and what we promote. We can also be discerning in what we choose to read and believe online.
Women today are asking themselves:
- How can I avoid comparing my life to those I see online?
- How can I differentiate myself online and in life?
- How do I find my unique, one-of-kind voice?
- How do I know and share my story online? Why do I have to share my story?
- How can I get rid of the negative self-talk?
- How can I build my presence on social media for a greater good?
- How can I set boundaries on social media?
- How can I be present in life, instead of consumed with my likes, comments, etc.?
Women crave community. Women long to have a purpose, something that allows them to have an impact. They want to make a difference that matters. And somewhere in the middle of their busy schedules, they want to know that their life counted for something. They long to have their own story, but they just don’t know where to start.
This book will provide women in all stages of life, with a practical, understandable, and easy to read approach to using social media and how starting today, they too can make a difference online. Readers will learn how to #BeDifferent and actually impact the lives of their community and those who follow them. In learning to serve and be different, they will become influential online leaders who are worth following.
