FHE: Home, a Place of Safety
A battle of good against evil rages all around us. We need to do everything in our power to make our homes a haven and a place of safety.
Safety ultimately comes from the Lord. As long as we are prayerfully striving to build a home according to His specifications, He will magnify our efforts and fill us with His Spirit.
We also must involve our children in making our home a place of safety. They need to know that we depend on them to do their part to not let evil enter here. One of the most obvious cracks (sometimes it can seem like a gaping hole) in our home can be the media. Internet, movies, television, video games, music, magazines, and books can be uplifting, enlightening and entertaining. But the adversary can also use them for his purposes. Making wise media decisions is not always easy or convenient and it often involves sacrifice on our part, but it is eternally worth it! We must set the example for our children, and teach them through word and deed to choose the right.
Read the entire post at Latter-day Homeschooling, which discusses many things, including resources for screening and filtering media, and how to involve and teach our children to make wise media choices.
