Oh those pesky buttons. You know the ones I am talking about. Thumbs up and hearts, follow and friend. Those buttons that are so small and insignificant, yet hold so much power over us.

When my teens first opened their social media accounts I found them frequently checking their updates and pictures to see if they had likes. They would get excited over each new friend request or follow. If I were to be honest with you, I would admit that I was the same. We feed off the attention and approval we get. Social media in and of itself is not a bad thing. But for a preteen or teenager who is already struggling with acceptance and learning who they are, the obsession with friend requests, likes, comments, hearts, and all the like, can become and unhealthy and disappointing.

Kari Kampakis asks in her book Liked, Whose Approval Are You Living For, "would you rather be liked online-or loved in person?" In Liked, Whose Approval Are You Living For, Kari offers positive and powerful insights to help girls navigate the digital age. Applying God’s timeless truths to modern realities, this unique resource dives deeply into topics like social media, friendship, identity, and faith—while ultimately encouraging habits that lead to real and lasting relationships.

Kari asks young girls important, thought provoking questions like:
Who am I?
What is my purpose?
How can I change the world and make an eternal difference?
How can I love myself when I feel unlovable?

For anyone tired of the quest to impress—and ready to rest in God’s unconditional love—Liked, Whose Approval Are You Living For is the answer. This book is a conversation-starter that will quickly unite mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends by speaking to the female heart and addressing the need for approval with wisdom, hope, and grace.
