A Li'l Bit:
A Li'l Bit was created by Jonathan McKee, creator of He wanted to provide a weekly podcast where kids could simply hear God's word presented in a real and relevant way. Nothing crazy, nothing too hard to understand... just pure truth shared in 10 minute "easy to understand" segments. We chose iTunes as our vehicle for communicating this truth because we see more kids carrying iPods with them than Bibles. So we figured that this would be a good way to get the truth into the ears of a generation of young people who are going to make an impact in this world.

Plugged In:
I use this Focus on the Family website for film reviews, music reviews and TV reviews. The Film reviews are from a Christian perspective and list all positive elements, spiritual content, sexual content, violence, etc. A great site to check out before taking your family to see "American Pie."

This is an incredible resource to screen movies or videos before you see them. This detailed site reviews and lists every influential element, from specific bad language and imitative behavior to drug and alcohol content and scenes you'd just rather your kids or yourself not see. This isn't just a "warning label" site; there's also a box labeled, "Topics To Talk About" on each movie description page. Don't let the "subscriber" prompt fool you; you can look up loads of movies after you scroll to the bottom of the home page and just click the "GO TO FREE REVEIWS" button.

'The Real Facts about Drugs' is a site filled with information on common narcotics, as well as guidance on issues such as substance abuse, addiction help and more.
