My SIL, Amy, introduced this audiobook to us at our Chapman Sister Getaway and here are some of the key points I took away from it.
We are in a war with Satan and it can and will destroy our families if we don’t safe guard our homes. Women are a force for good in our world and we can have a great influence and power if we band together and motivate and inform others about this topic of pornography.
Pornography can be seen on computers, cell phones, video games, etc. Surfing the internet, opening emails, popups or even misspellings. Between the ages of 7-13 years a child is exposed to some type of pornography. 79-83% is seen in the home.
Don’t avoid bringing it to the family and start earlier than you think. She compared Lions vs Elephants in 1st Peter 5:8 in the Bible. Female elephants protect their young by gathering in a circle. We likewise can do this too with our own circles. Women are the Elephants in the room and we can defend virtue in our sphere of influence.
As women we need to be:
1. Be Aware
2. Take a Stand
3. Connect with Others
4. Use eachothers Strengths
Like Elephants we need to stand up and stay put stand strong and immovable. We need to share personal experience with our children about the times we can across pornography and how we felt about it when we saw it. We should prayerfully ask how we can as a family take a stand and I found one given to me by my Stake Presidency in Carlsbad titled Our Clean and Safe Media Pledge.
What media can we do without or delete from our homes? Who’s voice will get to our loved ones first? Our children want us to be tough and to talk with them about these issues and to discuss sex openly so that they don’t depend on porn to teach them.
