The Porn Project – A Christian Response to Pornography

The Porn Project in 1 sentence: Stop Looking at Porn

But how do you actually do that?

This talk will challenge our beliefs (what is porn?, history, theology), our behaviours (addiction, accountability, triggers, lifestyle, environment etc), and look beyond ourselves at how porn might be hurting others around us (spouse, children, dating relationships, people involved in the pornography industry etc).

The goal is to be less of a presentation and more of a training. Training to equip and empower individuals (men and women), parents and leaders on how to navigate this conversation no matter if you dabble, struggle, or are addicted to pornography in any of its forms.

Moving towards practical solutions from just talk
Moving towards wholeness from the brokenness.
Moving towards freedom from pornography

This is my full presentation on pornography. If you want to show this to your church, youth group, camp etc you can buy a digital download from this Vimeo link – https://vimeo.com/ondemand/thepornproject

Report Card for Parents

Ever wondered how you are doing as a parent?

I am going to give you a “report card” that we can give to our middle school & high school age children. The goal would be that we can see some areas we need to work harder on in our parenting. There would have to be at least a basic level of trust and openness in a home for a report card like this to be able to be given.

I would hope that in all areas of parenting my kids would feel that they could honestly tell me how I am doing as a parent in some of the following areas.

I would love to hear if you use this report card and how it goes in your family. If you have any thoughts or ideas on how to make it better let me know.

The PDF should open automatically below. Just right mouse click and save. If it does not click here for the PDF.

Secrets of Discipline

Years when I was a teacher Ron Morrish came in and did an in-service. It was one of the best talks on discipline I have ever heard. I would encourage you to check out this youtube video and if you like his content pick up one of his books.

How to have a better relationship with our phones: notifications (video 2)

Today’s video is looking at how we can decrease the number of notifications we get.

This is video 2 in a series on how we can have a better relationship with our phones. Check out the description in the Youtube video for future videos. If you have any ideas you think I should add let me know.

Love to hear if you were able to decrease your amount of daily notifications.

If you are watching “Game of Thrones,” you are watching porn.

Interesting article. Easy to read and to the point. Love to hear your thoughts.

If someone cropped out one of the graphic sex scenes from Game of Thrones and put that single scene online, by itself apart from any of the plot and intrigue, and your teenage son downloaded it, would you call it porn? Yes, you would.
So why is it that when we dress these scenes up with HBO glitz and glamour that all of a sudden they are socially acceptable? Is it because we actually love porn, but don’t want to admit that publicly? We don’t want to surf the dirty websites, but if we can get our porn via HBO (all on Netflix and/or Amazon Prime now, by the way), it’s like having our cake and eating it too. Porn without the social stigma. Porn that your spouse actually lets you watch. Porn you can rationalize.

And if you think you can somehow filter out the porn and only take in the art, you are deceived and double-minded as well. Porn does what porn does: as soon as it enters the scene, it removes all dignity and humanity. All that is left is body parts and the consuming of other humans. You can’t keep someone’s dignity once you have already devoured it. 
You don’t get porn and human dignity; you get porn or human dignity.
Choose wisely.
