Protect Your Children from Pornography, with Covenant Eyes
November 21, 2023 - 37 min
THIS MONTH’S PRAYER GUIDE: Praying God's Word for Your Child to Have Wisdom According to some research, 50% of 11- to 13-year-olds, 65% of 14- to 15-year-olds and 78% of 16- to 17-year-olds reported having seen pornography in some way (shown/sent by someone else, searched for/stumbled upon it). The time when we could all put our heads in the sand, or play Pollyanna, hoping everything will turn out ok, is gone. Porn is a serious issue affecting our children today and we, as parents, must help them through it.  In today's episode, Brooke interviews the podcast team from Covenant Eyes, asking questions like: What's the most recent research telling us about the way porn affects our children, specifically our tweens and teens? What's the most important thing parents can do to ensure their children know how to handle porn when it comes looking for them?  Don't miss this important episode! THIS MONTH’S PRAYER GUIDE: Praying God's Word for Your Child to Have Wisdom The Bible tells us that there are basically only two types of people—the foolish and the wise. The Proverbs are filled with wisdom for Christian living, and serve as a guide, helping us know how to make decisions, which paths to take, and how to understand the life God has called us to live as believers. Doesn’t that sound exactly like what you want God to accomplish in your child’s heart?

What's important for parents to know about their children, and about how social media works? Don't miss this important episode friends.

Growing in Co-Parenting, with Rachel G. Scott
October 9, 2023 - 26 min
THIS MONTH’S PRAYER GUIDE: Praying God’s Word for Your Blended Family. If I had to guess, I would say that the hardest part of blending a family together is learning to co-parent. I have a good friend who introduces her kids often as, "his, mine, ours" and while that sounds very sweet, I believe it's probably much harder work than most of us realize. Different parenting styles, sibling relationships, difficulties with ex-spouses...it feels like to could a minefield, and that's why I've invited my friend Rachel G. Scott to talk to us today about growing in your co-parenting. Rachel is a wealth of information, with years of experience fighting for the blended family.  Don’t miss this episode.

We have some amazing stories and wisdom to share.

And finally, Connie Albers will help us wrap up the month by talking about understanding the unique challenges children face when their parents remarry.
