Protect your family and yourself against the lies of the media
Click Here for the resources from our interview with Tina Marie Griffin
It is impossible to turn on the television or the radio without seeing or hearing messages that go against everything we stand for as Christians. We are bombarded with glamorous images of premarital sex, drug abuse and alcoholism, and well as suicide and other self-destructive behavior. As parents, it is a daily battle to fight off the influences of Hollywood, the music industry and social media. How do we intentionally help our children to navigate this culture and cling to Christ to find their identity?
Join us today as we hear from former actress turned speaker and blogger, Tina Marie Griffin. Tina’s background in Hollywood and the entertainment industry has given her a unique view into the real lives of celebrities, the double standards that some of them live by, and the pressures that surround them at all sides. Tina has seen first hand that what we see and hear is not the truth. Consequences are very real and it is imperative that we expose the real truth to our youth so that they can become leaders who can make a difference in our culture.
