Screens and Teens: Connecting with Our Kids in a Wireless World
Technology is one of the benefits of living in today's world. It is a non-negotiable for success in our educational, vocational, and social cultures. Yet, with all the advantages there are inherent dangers, deceptions, and abuses. Teens often look to their digital tools to make them happy, when you set boundaries or take them away they feel frustrated and incomplete. Unhealthy habits formed in this stage of life easily carry over into adulthood and addictions to technology make other addictions more likely.
Screens and Teens applauds the good aspects of the digital age, but also alerts parents to how technology contributes to self-centered character, negative behaviors, and beliefs that inhibit spiritual growth, prescribing manageable solutions regardless of the level of their teen's involvement. Unmasking the lies teenagers tend to believe, like "I must have choices," the book majors on truth, acknowledging that Truth alone brings contentment, freedom, and success.

World Relief empowers the vulnerable to lead their own change. With initiatives in disaster response, community health, economic development, peace building and refugee and immigrant services, World Relief works with the worldwide local church to overcome hunger, disease and injustice.

World Relief convenes The Justice Conference each year to help people live justice together towards a better world.
Possible: A Blueprint for Changing How We Change the World
We need a better vision for saving the world.

Across the world, people like you are rising up to fight poverty, oppression, and injustice—not just professionals, but bloggers, musicians, entrepreneurs, artists, and advocates. People who refuse to accept the world as it is, who dare to believe change is possible.

But we face a crisis of vision. We sense what needs to be done, but often we don’t know how to do it. Without a better blueprint for doing good well, our moment in history will slip away.

In Possible, the author presents clear and biblical thinking, powerful stories, and practical tools for sustainably impacting our workplaces, neighborhoods, villages, and cities.

Possible is an eloquent and personal call to reconsider what it means to change ourselves so that we can change the world.
