This is a page for all adults who love teens.

and

YOUTH LEADERS!




This page is presented

to help adults

to show love and practical help to

the teens they love.




Monday 


MOVIE -

Alison's Choice

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.


View this GREAT movie

and then show it to your teens -

so that you and they can be prepared for a crisis -

even a crisis in the life of a good friend.

Don't wait until a pregnancy occurs.

Watch this great movie NOW!





Tuesday 


Teens need our help.

~ ~

It is so much harder to be a teen today

than when I was a teen.

~ ~

Showing teens great movies

is a great way

to touch their lives forever.

-

Watching the movies

on this page

could prevent crisis situations

in their lives.


If you need to -

Consider paying them to watch a movie.



Many parents just give their teens money.

Many grandparents just give their teens money.


Consider paying teens

for watching a movie

or for reading a book in the Bible.



The movie below

is a great movie for adults

and a MUST-SEE for teenagers.


"Without a vision, the people perish."
Proverbs 29:18

-

The movie below gives a vision of hope.


Real Life.

Real Questions.

Real Answers.

Real Hope.

For all the difficult situations in a teen's life.

Don't miss seeing the movie below.

.



The above clip shows that the movie is about

teens who are alone and feel worthless.


The clip -  below -  shows that the movie

is also about teens who are on top of the world

but know they need something more. 


Note that there is an implied sex scene

that looks like it is going to be graphic but then

the

camera cuts to another scene.

It does not show anything.




Be sure and preview this movie

before showing it to teens.

It has some scenes

that you will need to be ready for.





Teens need Real Answers.

Teens need Real Love Displayed.

~

Teens need adults to get involved.

~

Give some time to teens.

Spend some money
to get

Great Christian resources for them.

Please!

Dealing with Sexuality


Wednesday 

 

Teens need help with purity.


Teens need to

UNDERSTAND

WHY

they should choose purity.


- - -

Teens need HELP

to

get insights into

HOW to choose Purity.

-

Sex was God's Idea...

So...

Let the following video inspire your

teens




Below is an Inspirational Movie about

Staying Pure

in an impure World

 

It shows the way (clumsy sometimes) that a man
travels the road to dating in a pure way.

- -

The man -  had led -  a sexually impure life
but is determined to change.

The movie shows the emotional scars and stumbling blocks
that his impure past has left with him.


Yet the movie gives hope to those like him.


And the movie motivates
those who are still virgins to stay that way.


Both main characters have a sexual past to overcome. 

Both find and choose the beauty of purity.

- -

This movie is very real.

It shows courage

in handling

the challenges of staying pure

AND
it shows the heartache of dealing with an

impure past.


Great movie to show teenagers,
single adults, and parents!




There are a million movies
showing how to choose

impurity.


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.


He is the kind of man

most women secretly want

but don't believe exist.




Another Great Love Story Movie

that portrays

the better way to date and pick a spouse.

(More of a "girl" movie)

Please consider showing your teen one of these pages:

Dealing with Pornography



Thursday 



Teens need help understanding

the dangers of Pornography.


Teens - and children -  are falling into porn

without understanding

the dangers,

because

parents aren't taught how to protect them.


Porn changes the BRAIN.

Porn is highly addictive.

Porn ruins lives.

-

Wise parents put a filter on the internet.

It is not about trust - it is about wisdom.




Listen and learn and help teens!




The above info and more are found on our page:

Porn-free kids.

Also, we have a page called Get Free of Porn

and a page called

What is wrong with Porn?


Get educated.

Help teens get a vision of a

PORN-FREE

Life!



Presenting the Gospel in fun ways


Friday

 Teaching teens

to spread the Gospel


Thursday thoughts:

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


Here are some skits

to get your creative juices stirring.

 



Some teens may have a talent

for writing skits!



Sign language songs are powerful!
