Don't Mom Alone Podcast

Movies.

I really like them.

And according to the billions of dollars Hollywood spends each year to make movies, I’m guessing a lot of you like movies, too.

In fact, if you are a mom reading,  you may even look forward to the gathering of your little ones each week for “family movie night”.

But do you struggle, like I do to find movies everyone wants to watch? Or even a movie that will help you think more than lose brain cells?

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could relax, enjoy a movie with your family AND teach your children more about God’s great big story?

Well, my good friend, Amanda White (OhAmanda.com)…who also likes movies and loves Jesus…and I want to help your family do just that.

In today’s episode entitled, “Family Movie Moms” we share a lot of our theories/philosophies about movies and… a new vision.

Our goal is to 1)write frequent family movie discussion guides 2) broadcast a regular feature on the GCM podcast, called “Family Movie Moms”. Each show will include current movies reviews and ideas/questions to help teach your kiddos how to see truth and gain discernment as they view entertainment.

In today’s episode we chat about (quite a few things):

  • personal family screen time limits
  • the effects of video games on our kids
  • how much t.v. we watched when we were kids
  • recording movies on our VCR & renting Beta tapes
  • why we write family movie discussion guides
  • thoughts on “The Lego Movie” & “Disney’s Pirate Fairy”
  • being counter-cultural and yet engaging culture
  • teaching our children discretion when watching shows (not to emulate everything they watch).
  • thoughts on “How to Train your Dragon 2” & “Frozen”
  • difference between watching a movie once & meditating on a movie
