The age is getting younger and younger at which the average child views pornography and given our culture’s nack for selling sex and pushing boundaries and letting you decide what is right for you, this trend will only continue. A harem full of sexually explicit pictures can be viewed with any internet connection and your kids know that. In the midst of this, we still must parent our children and raise them in the fear of the Lord, seeking to protect their purity as they mature. This article provides some helpful tips on ways to do just that.

We hear statistics all the time about kids leaving church. We wonder why so many who grew up in our children’s ministries and youth groups aren’t around anymore or plugged in to any local church anywhere. Here’s an article taking a stab at how to answer that question (I think he’s spot on!). Enjoy.
