“I am having trouble meeting and keeping new friends, I try to reach out to others, even having them over or texting them but it doesn’t seem to work, my efforts seem to be in vain–even with ladies in my church!  I see everyone around me having friends and having fun. I am feeling lonely and depressed and don’t know what to do anymore.”

Dear Mothers and Housewives,

I was discussing social media with my dear husband recently.  While my husband only has one social media account for work, I have several that I’ve set up over the years.  I am very grateful for a husband who thinks carefully about how his time is spent and puts the Lord before all other things.  I love my husband very much and have sometimes bragged about him on this very platform I am warning against today!  But that is because I see we have a problem.

While social media may have some benefits, such as keeping in touch with people far away, it can be very detrimental, and I think we need to be very careful with it, if not avoid it altogether.

If we have an honest discussion on the topic, most women will admit (again, if they’re being honest), that social media such as Facebook, is highly addicting.  We will also admit that we spend way too much time there, looking at what everyone else is doing, and most likely seeing how many likes and comments we will get on our own posts.  This sharing things with everybody is quite a new concept, as in times past, mothers before us might have had a telephone conversation with one person at a time, or they would have written a letter to keep in touch, again, with one person at a time, or perhaps a family.  Having large groups of people purposely drawn into our personal lives is quite a new thing–it’s almost like having a party every day that we post something for so many people to see, or as we scroll and click to see what everyone else is up to.  I’m sure someone has done studies by now to find this is detrimental to people as a whole.  We don’t interact as humans as we once did.  We are missing something.  We are replacing it with getting attention and what really seems to me as becoming busybodies while remaining in our own homes.

 
More importantly as homemakers, what happens when we spend so much time on Facebook or other social media?  Are we keeping our houses neat and clean?  Are we cooking nice meals for our families?  Are we keeping on top of organization?  Are we playing with and talking to our children?  Are we helping others in need?  Or do we know more about what happened with so-and-so on Facebook than what happened in our own home today?  I am sadly not making this up–this is reality.

What about our spiritual lives?  Do we spend real, quiet time with the Lord?  Really getting deep into His Word and seeing what He wants to teach us this day, and not what would be so neat for a post on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram?  This is what really saddens me–Christians in these times spend so much time on Facebook (I say Facebook, because I think it’s the biggest and most popular social media time-sucker)–and this time is gone, lost forever.  This time, in ages past, would have been spent in prayer, and in reading God’s Word.  But we are not doing it.  We are too busy updating the masses with what is going on in our lives–especially when we go to social media to post something, instead of going to the Lord in prayer.

Please understand, I know that not all is bad about social media, but we really must be careful with how we spend our time, and why we are doing it.  There are so many important things for us mothers to do that we must make sure to do those important and necessary things.  Facebook can wait.  Facebook is not needed.  People can still communicate through phone calls, letters, and emails.  How much better would it be to have the attention of our children and husbands than the attention of our Facebook friends (though we may have some dear ones and of course, we can still keep in touch in other ways)?  How much better would it be if the Lord had our attention instead of social media?

 
So, who would like to join me in being less involved in social media and more involved in our own homes?  More involved with our precious children, and more involved with our dear husbands?  How about more involved with our Savior?  This is my plan, for the good of our family, our church, and our country.  The benefits of spending more time focused on our families and the Lord are far reaching.
