Laying a Foundation for Marriage – MBFLP 169

 

We probably all share the hope that our children will marry, and marry well, and serve God in their family one day. But are we being intentional about preparing our sons to become godly husbands?  It’s important to live a good example in front of them, but we need to train them to deal with the issues that affect them as young men, and we need to encourage them to see marriage as a likely part of their mission in God’s kingdom! This episode includes part of a presentation Hal gave to a men’s conference earlier this year, about laying a foundation for your son’s future marriage – because “He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord!” (Proverbs 18:22)

Warning Signs of Porn – MBFLP 160

 

We get messages all the time from parents who’ve found out one of their children is watching porn. In every one, the parents express shock. They had no idea, no clue that this was going on in their house, so they just aren’t prepared to deal with it. When we talk to them, though, the signs have been there — they just missed them. This episode, we’re talking about warning signs that someone in your family is watching pornography – not so you can ambush them, but so you can get them help.

The Purity Culture with Sheila Gregoire – HIRL Episode 125

Free homeschool podcast about the purity movement.Sheila Gregoire is the author of the book, The Good Girl’s Guide To Great Sex. She is also a popular speaker and blogger at To Love Honor and Vacuum.

Sheila joins us in the studio again this week as we discuss the phenomenon that is the “purity culture” and its affect on the Christian homeschooling community.

How do we convey a Biblical view of sex and marriage to our kids without strapping them with the burden and bondage of religious behaviorism? How can we equip them to enter into marriage with a healthy, godly view of sex and what it contributes to a marriage?

Join us for a lively and helpful discussion on the purity culture.

On The Other Hand … Purity Rings – MBFLP 131

RRM Purity Rings V

So often a well-intentioned effort can have unexpected – and maybe, undesireable – results. When a marriageble young man sees a likely-looking young woman, but notices a simple ring on her left hand, what does he think? What does the young woman think he’s going to think? And does that match what’s actually going on? We’ve had several very significant conversations with young ladies wearing purity rings, and we’re discovering that something unintended may indeed be happening! Join us as we look at the question of purity rings — and why they need to move to the other hand!

MBFLP – Keeping Your Kids Safe Online

MBFLP-2014-12-29 Keeping Kids Safe Online

For many families, Christmas is the time they update their smart phones, unwrap a new laptop, or add a phablet to the home network. Once, concerned parents were told, “Keep the computer in the family room and turn the screen where everybody can see it.” That’s not enough to prevent mischief online any more, since more and more of us – and our children – can reach out and touch the Internet from nearly any electronic device in the house. And studies are showing more and more children are being exposed to porn online, younger and younger. What can a parent do? Is a filter or blocking program going to be effective? Or is there a way to teach your kids to be wise and discerning in the wide unfiltered world … which may be as close as your purse or pocket? Join us as Hal talks again with Luke Gilkerson, the Educational Resources Manager for Covenant Eyes, about a way to both protect your kids and train them up for the battle for personal integrity and purity!

MBFLP – Talking To Your Kids About Sex

It’s a difficult thing for most parents – gathering the courage to have “The Talk” with our children. Why can’t we just wait until they’re more grown up? Can’t we shield them from the sexualized culture so they can stay innocent until they’re adults? How in the world do we even start the conversation? This episode, Hal talks with Luke Gilkerson, the Educational Resource Director for Covenant Eyes, a ministry dedicated to teaching and protecting a Biblical view of sex, purity, and personal integrity. You won’t want to miss this one —
