Do You Wanna Watch a Mo-vie?


Based on the popularity of my movie reviews and family movie guides…ok, maybe based on how much I enjoy those posts, my friend Heather (also a fabu movie mama) and I are starting a weekly monthly frequent podcast about current movies and how to use them to bring up God-centered topics and conversation with your kids.

Our inaugural episode is live today and in it we talk a bit about our “philosophy” of screen-time and how we watch movies with our kids. I know I’m totally narcissistic but I listened to the whole episode (yes, even though I had totally been in the conversation the first time) and thought it was so interesting!

Plus, my kids thought I was famous, “Mommy, is that you?! On a podcast? Are you on Phil Vischer’s podcast?” No baby. Not yet. *wink*

Lemme know if you listen! I’d love to hear your thoughts!


  1. Thanks for sharing! I agree with your viewpoints! It is a struggle to keep my under 2 year old away from television (as you mentioned is recommended by the Academy of Pediatrics). My husband and I tend to have it on just as background noise….I have to be deliberate about turning it off….really haven’t missed it! Looking forward to hearing more about your movie reviews as my little one gets older. I like how you weave your viewpoints into normal daily conversation with your kids. Reminds me of these verses from Deuteronomy as I’m sure you know: “5 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. 6 And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. 7 Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. 8 Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. 9 Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” This goes along with what you were saying about the statistics of people who stay in their religion. Thanks again for your Godly example and for sharing all your ideas!

    • Yes, Elyse! That’s my verse for raising my kids–I want to just have constant conversation flowing in and out of our daily life. Thank you!
