Feel like your family is inundated with technology?


You’re not alone! Since the onset of the pandemic, technology has become a lifeline and essential way to move forward when we can’t meet in person, which means that millions of Christians, young and old, are spending more time in front of screens than ever. Juggling work and school online has heightened our awareness of the spiritual, relational and emotional struggles with always-on access to technology.


Join Andy Crouch and help your family reclaim life that is really life.

Tech-Wise has everything you need to put technology in its proper place, including:

A new way think about the role technology plays in our lives.

Actionable strategies for using technology wisely at home, school, work and even church.

How to stop technology from distracting us from the best moments in life.

Why technology actually leads to boredom instead of preventing it.

How to position devices to play a supporting role in our lives, instead of consuming our lives and driving us toward passivity.


Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in Its Proper Place

Making good choices about technology is more than just using internet filters and limiting “screen time.” It’s about developing wisdom, character, and courage in the way we use digital media, rather than accepting technology’s promises of ease, instant gratification, and the world’s knowledge at our fingertips.

Drawing on in-depth original research from Barna Group, Andy Crouch helps readers ask deeper questions about tech and family life: Who do we want to be as a family? How does our use of a particular technology move us closer or farther away from that goal? This book is for anyone who has felt their family relationships suffer or their time slip away amid technology’s distractions, and wants to reclaim real life in a world of devices.

Growing Up and Making Choices in a World of Devices

While most of her peers were obsessed with their iPhones, Instagramming and Snapchatting their lives, and glued to streaming TV, 19-year-old Amy Crouch was growing up with minimal technology. In My Tech-Wise Life, she and her father, Andy Crouch, share how intentional and controlled use of modern devices, apps, and services has helped her avoid many of the negative experiences of her peers and cultivate positive experiences interacting with the real world.

With writing that connects on a teen-to-teen level, Amy and Andy unpack tech temptations–such as the temptation to distract ourselves from any potentially boring or awkward situation, or to stay up-to-date with every notification and trend–and then offer antidotes that lead to more patience, wisdom, honesty, and wonder in life.
