The Bubble-Wrapped Generation
What does it look like to be the progeny of helicoptering, bubble-wrapping parents? It’s all well and good that your parents tried to protect you from harm, but what if you’re now a helpless adult who calls 911 because you saw a mouse?

Following Jesus in a Self-Centered World
Guests: Craig Groeschel,
As pastor of an online church community, Craig Groeschel knows what it means to use technology for the glory of God and the good of ourselves and others. The flip side is when your technology owns you or you’re addicted to the constant feeding of your own ego, whether it’s by Facebook-liking, selfie-mania or fill-in-the-blank. Craig weaves in advice from his book #Struggles as he helps us take our eyes off ourselves and onto Jesus and a more balanced and fulfilled life.
