    The Online Etiquette Guide for the Modern Christian Woman

    One thing that makes me super sad is that kids these days will never know the joy of getting to play Oregon Trail on a rickety old Apple II desktop computer that sometimes kind of worked, and other times completely did not work.

    Now we live in an age where we’re connected 24/7 and there’s even an app where you can get texts from Jesus. (I’m almost positive they’re not actual texts from Jesus, because let’s be real, even Verizon doesn’t cover heaven.)

    How do we navigate this perpetually connected world we live in? I have no idea.

    Just kidding! You should know by now I always have an opinion…so here are my thoughts on what it takes to be a Christian woman in today’s online world.

    The modern Christian woman doesn’t completely avoid technology. She realizes technology provides many conveniences, like ordering pizza for herself and her girlfriends with an emoji. (Whaaaaatttt?!? Yup. That’s a thing.)

    The modern Christian woman does occasionally put her phone away. She realizes the importance of face-to-face communication and puts her phone in her purse while having coffee with friends or dinner with family.

    The modern Christian woman doesn’t engage in political tirades online. She realizes these rants accomplish nothing, and like a heroine in a Jane Austen novel, she generally chooses to be above such things.

    The modern Christian woman doesn’t engage in any sort of rant online. Per the previous paragraph, she chooses to do her “ranting” in person. She realizes that what we say online is not often what we’re brave enough to say in person. If you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face, don’t say it online. The modern Christian woman does share things she finds funny or uplifting. Because let’s be real…no one can ever have too many videos of babies petting puppies on their wall.

    The modern Christian woman doesn’t Snapchat every waking minute of her day. She establishes a filter for herself and what she shares. Cute brunch with the girls—yes. The 70th shot of her watching Netflix alone—no.

    The modern Christian woman doesn’t try to be perfect online. She is fully aware of her “flaws” and sees no reason to hide them. Her “I Woke Up Like This” photo should have an appropriate amount of drool and absolutely no makeup.

    The modern Christian woman tries to put her phone away an hour before bed. She realizes the importance of beauty sleep and knows that using electronics before bed suppresses melatonin levels. She knows this because she got enough beauty sleep to pay attention in her science class.

    Finally, the modern Christian woman does a WWJD over her online life. Without going overboard, she makes sure her online presence is all about loving God and loving others.

     

    What do you ladies think? What do you feel is important that I left out?
