Aunts & Uncles
This page is presented
to help adults
to show love and practical help to
the teens they love.
Show the following movie
- BEFORE -
your teen or your teen's friend -
has an unwanted pregnancy.
Let your teen see and understand - BEFORE - he or she needs to make an important decision.
This is a Great Movie
that really helps teens process
the abortion decision.
Almost every family will encounter a crisis
because of an unwanted pregnancy.

Consider paying teens

This movie is alone in its message -
not only of purity
but of how to handle
an impure past in a godly way.
The man main character does sometimes seem a little too cautious or too analytical,
but I see a real person
trying his best to figure out how to date
in a pure way.
That is endearing!
The man is impressive, strong, and admirable.

to spread the Gospel
The most important thing is teaching your teens about Jesus and encouraging them to make a commitment to live for Jesus Christ.
Next, it is important for us to teach them about how to spread the Good News of Jesus.
One great way for teens to spread the Gospel is by helping them create and present skits.
These skits can be:
* Presented to their church
* Presented to their youth group
* Videotaped and then sent to relatives
Remind teens that Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to present skits, puppet shows, creative dance, Scripture reading, Christmas plays, sign language songs, etc. to relatives!
Consider visiting our Christmas page for teens and children for lots of ideas.Click - Gospel ideas
