Motherhood, Facebook Addiction, and Spiritual Sleepwalking


A friend sent me the following testimony from Tracy Fruehauf on mothering, Facebook addiction, and awaking from a digitally-induced acedia, a kind of social media-driven sleepwalking of the soul.

Fruehauf, the wife of a fourth-year seminary student at Bethlehem College and Seminary, shared her struggles in a message to moms on December 11. The talk was originally posted here, and I edited the audio for volume.

Download it here, or listen (17 minutes):

The message is drawn from a written piece she published here. And near the end of her message she mentions helpful links for moms on her blog here.

Definitely worth a read or listen.
