A Li'l Bit:
A Li'l Bit was created by Jonathan McKee, creator of TheSource4Parents.com. He wanted to provide a weekly
podcast where kids could simply hear God's word presented in a real and relevant way. Nothing crazy,
nothing too hard to understand... just pure truth shared in 10 minute "easy to understand" segments. We
chose iTunes as our vehicle for communicating this truth because we see more kids carrying iPods with them
than Bibles. So we figured that this would be a good way to get the truth into the ears of a generation of
young people who are going to make an impact in this world.
Al is one of the authors who writes for our
Parenting Help page
. I've quoted Al and plugged his
newsletters in the past. Al Menconi Ministries' mission is to educate and equip Christian parents, leaders
and youth to consider the values communicated in their entertainment—especially today's music—and encourage
choices consistent with God's Word. Al writes fantastic articles; be sure to check this site out!
Center for Parent/Youth Understanding:
This site has a veritable plethora of great resources about youth culture. Walt Mueller, president of
Center for Parent/Youth Understanding (CPYU), publishes a quarterly newsletter about youth culture available
on this CPYU web site. This is great site with lots of useful links to help us keep current with where youth
are today. Check it out.
HomeWord has developed this web site as a resource to parents. This site is the home of the popular radio
show "HomeWord with Jim Burns." Jim is one of the authors who writes for our
Parenting Help page
. Jim’s HomeWord website is laid out
extremely well with resources for all. Some of the highlights are their free parent newsletter, daily
devotions, real life answers and articles. Check it out!
I use this Focus on the Family website for film reviews, music reviews and TV reviews. The Film reviews are
from a Christian perspective and list all positive elements, spiritual content, sexual content,
violence, etc. A great site to check out before taking your family to see "American Pie."
This is an incredible resource to screen movies or videos before you see them. This detailed site reviews
and lists every influential element, from specific bad language and imitative behavior to drug and alcohol
content and scenes you'd just rather your kids or yourself not see. This isn't just a "warning label" site;
there's also a box labeled, "Topics To Talk About" on each movie description page. Don't let the "subscriber"
prompt fool you; you can look up loads of movies after you scroll to the bottom of the home page and just
click the "GO TO FREE REVEIWS" button.
