How to speak to your kids about pornography
Do you worry about your kids and online pornography? It's a big issue for parents today. We have some help to offer you from Marilyn Evans, the founder of Parents Aware, an organization aimed at helping parents have healthy conversations with their kids about pornography, sex, and intimacy, and host of the Media Savvy Moms podcast. We featured her work in the Nov/Dec issue of Faith Today magazine (www.faithtoday.ca). In this podcast Marilyn shares with Karen Stiller some of her top guidance on having very tough conversations about online pornography and other dangers, with our highly-connected children.
Funerals. Yes, funerals.
Who wants to sit around and talk about funerals? We do! In this special episode of the Faith Today podcast, EFC's resident theologian David Guretzki dialogues with Tim Perry, author of Funerals: for the Care of Souls, the book that inspired the cover story of the latest Faith Today. If you think this will be a downer, think again. But it might change the way you think about funerals.
