Did you know that there is a direct correlation between the advent of social media and rapid growth in anxiety and depression? What’s even scarier is that teens spend an average of nine hours a day online! Maybe both of those facts shock you or maybe you feel the reality of them daily.

On today’s episode of True You, we’re diving into the issue of managing our time spent using social media. Let’s be honest, many of us have experienced difficulty in this area. And with documentaries like the Social Dilemma pulling our attention to the issue once again, we want to give you tips to better monitor the time you spend on your screen. It’s time to screen our time! Check out one girl’s freedom story of how she learned to manage her consumption of social media:


If you’ve struggled to manage your time spent using social media, here are a few scriptures to encourage you in your journey. Write them down, memorize them, and stand firm in the Truth of what God says about your time. 

  • James 4:14
  • Psalm 90:12

We'd love to hear from you! Send us your freedom story—that’s what we call it when God sets you free through His Truth found in the Bible. Post your 1-minute video on social media and tag @liesyoungwomenbelieve or upload it here, and it could be selected to be featured on a future episode of True You.
