Choosing Family Movies in an X-Rated World

Choosing Family Movies in an X-Rated World

Meredith Curtis answers the question “In our world of sex, graphic violence, and trashy talk, can we find movies the whole family can enjoy together?” in Choosing Family Movies in an X-rated World. Many homeschooling families have a wide range of ages and interests. We each have our favorite genre. In spite of this, there are many wonderful movies out there you can enjoy together. Our sponsor today is Sony Pictures, featuring their new movie Smurfs, The Lost Village. You can can download a free Christian study guide for this film at affirmfilms.com/resources/ .

Thanks to our Network Sponsor

Sony Pictures: AffirmsFilms.com and the latest movie with great values and message – Smurfs: The Lost Village.

Getting Started Again After The Holidays – MBFLP 156

It’s normal and natural to feel some hesitation or dread when we leave our times of celebration and fun, and turn to the routine duties again – homeschooling among them. Should you just jump right in, or ease the transition?
Do you implement resolutions or simply set goals? Does Mom’s attitude make a difference to the kids’? This episode, we talk about how to get your ducks back in their rows – and your attitudes encouraged, too.

Teaching Your Kids To Be Content – MBFLP 155

The call for believers to be contented people is so difficult, even the apostle Paul struggled with it, and the Puritans called it “a rare jewel”! Yet even while we grown-ups are stumbling over grey weather, taxes, bills, and a thousand frustrations … we need to be teaching our kids how to be contented people themselves! This episode, we talk about God’s perspective on contentment and ways we can encourage habits of relying on God and not snatching for selfish indulgence, for our kids – and ourselves!


 

Scriptures We Referenced:

1 Tim 6:6-8Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For with we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. (this is the passage that continues to warn of the effects of greed, desire to be rich, love of money)

2 Cor 9:8And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work

Phil 4:11-13I have learned in whatever state I am to be content. I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.

Pro 30:8-9Remove falsehood and lies far from me;
Give me neither poverty nor riches–
Feed me with the food allotted to me;
Lest I be full and deny You,
And say, “Who is the LORD?”
Or lest I be poor and steal,
And profane the name of my God.

Mt 6:25-33Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ … But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Heb 13:6Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’
