Article of the Week:

I Just Caught My Kid Looking At Pornography

By Josh Hussung

1. Don't freak out
2. Show Compassion
3. Act
4. Carry on

"And as a parent, exert that same hope in your own life through prayer. We can apply filters, set up boundaries and protect our children to the best of our ability, but it is only through the saving work of the Holy Spirit that true change can happen. So as you do all of those things, be prayerful that God would work and that your whole family would be marked by purity."
