Before you listen to today’s episode, we want to make sure you know that it comes with a GROWNUPS ONLY label. We are putting a disclaimer on this episode, because we want to make sure you listen to this one on your own, and not with your kiddos.
Today we’re starting a series called “What’s on your mind?” In this series, each one of the At Home hosts will take turns sharing an issue or topic that is on her mind, on her heart, or that she feels is important to discuss. Greta is going first, and the issue that she wants to talk about is protecting our kids from pornography.
This isn’t an easy topic to discuss. But this discussion is necessary, in fact imperative, for us to have for the sake of our children’s safety. We need to acknowledge that we are in a battle for our children’s minds, their hearts, and their emotional and sexual health. This is a battle for their future relationships, their marriages, and their faith. We must be willing to be uncomfortable in order to be better equipped for the fight at hand—the fight against pornography.
In this episode, Greta shares plenty of research and information about the damaging and dangerous effects of pornography. But she also offers ways to prepare ourselves and our children to stand firm in the battle and fight back. She gives us things to do, so we aren’t left feeling hopeless.
Ultimately it is our hope that this episode leaves you feeling informed, equipped, and empowered to protect your children from this harmful plague called pornography. We’re grateful you’re here, and willing to be part of these conversations about topics that truly matter. Thank you for being a part of At Home.
