On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, I’m chatting with Tony Reinke on the topic of smartphone use. I know it’s tempting to dodge this episode given the topic, but I want to encourage you to listen, as it’s such an important conversation for us as believers. Tony and I talked about everything from the challenges affiliated with of smartphone use to how we can actually use them to do what God has called us to do more effectively. We also talked about how we can wisely disciple our children in regard to their use of technology. I would venture out to say this is one of the most helpful conversations I’ve had on the Journeywomen podcast. So you’ll know him a little better, Tony is an author and a non-profit journalist in the Twin Cities. He writes about many things but especially the intersection of where technology and digital media meet the Christian life. He is also the host of the Ask Pastor John podcast and Senior Writer at desiringGod.org. I cannot wait to share this conversation with you all!
