Clean Fun for Mother’s Day

Welcome Guest Blogger, Author Kathryn Bain!!    Wishing all moms a Happy Mother's Day this week!

 

 

  

I used to enjoy movies, but any more they’re filled with so many curse words or a lot of nudity that I’ve stopped watching them. As Christians, we need to be careful what we spend our time on. There’s a saying, garbage in, garbage out. The more you watch these types of movies or television shows, the more you’ll be prone to use the language or act out the situations.

 

Philippians 4:8-9 states, Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. If we spend time watching or reading unclean movies or books, we give the devil more of a chance to sneak in.

 

Our minds are too important to spend on sinful things.

 

That’s why it’s so important to spend time with God. The more you read the Bible, the more you’ll become acquainted with God’s word, and the less you’ll want the garbage the world has to offer.

 

With Mother’s Day coming up quick, I thought I’d give you a list of movies that you can enjoy with your family without any embarrassing moments.

 

1.      For those who want romance, how about Sandra Bullock in While You Were Sleeping. This mixes humor with romance. And you can’t beat Sandra Bullock for great acting.

2.      Want something you and the kids can enjoy? I suggest you watch Happy Feet. Cute penguins, good music, and funny.

3.      Get a bunch of your girlfriends over for a night of watching Mom’s Night Out. I loved this movie. It had great humor, and trust me, you’ll relate to the mother in this story.

4.      Want a dash of suspense, The Watcher in the Woods starring Bette Davis will keep you awake at night. And no naked or half-naked girls being chased with chain saws.

5.      Want something you and your daughters can enjoy together? Download a copy of Little Women. It’s got romance, suspense, laughter, and those moments when you’ll need the tissues near.

6.      Into sci-fi, how about the original Star Wars. It’ll help you get ready for the upcoming release in December.

 

Too many times I hear Christians say they can’t find anything good to watch that doesn’t have a lot of garbage in it. If you try hard enough, there are a lot of good movies out there. You just have to be persistent.

 

Also encourage your children to be more discerning about what they watch and read. Show them how the “f” word is used more for shock than substance. By teaching them to tell the difference, you’ll help them grow to want only substance in their lives.

 

And isn’t that being a good mother is all about?
