Some Things I Find Helpful

I guess you could call this a 'What Works For Me' post because lately there have been some resources that I've been utilizing and loving and I thought I'd share.

First of all, Focus on the Family in and of itself is a HUGE resource. If you're not familiar with James Dobson, google him. He's written many really good books on family/parenting issues as well as the founder (I believe) of Focus on the Family. 95% of what I have heard him speak I typically agree with (morally, biblically, etc.) and he's an enjoyable speaker/writer. FOTF has a couple of podcasts that I download on iTunes for free and listen to on my ipod while I walk. They are such an encouragement to me as well as a good teacher. There is a podcast for marriage and one for parenting as well as an entire broadcast section of their website where you can find much more. They also have several newsletters that you can receive (email or paper) for free that focus on different age groups/issues (Parenting, Family, Marriage, Singles, Homosexual Issues, etc). And last but not least, they have an entire website devoted to reviews of tv, movies, games, etc. called Plugged In Online and do an awesome job, I think.
