If you open your eyes to the messages and chaos of our culture for more than one minute, you know that your job as a Christian parent is essential. Discipling our kids through the chaos and secular worldview of our culture can be a tough job. But now there is an app that will help you safely navigate through the culture. It’s called Counter Culture Mom and it’s just what Christian parents have been needing.
Who is Counter Culture Mom
Tina Griffin is a former Hollywood actress, pop culture expert, and motivational speaker. She’s the face behind the Counter Culture Mom movement. She’s been sharing for the past twenty years how pop culture and the entertainment industry is glamorizing harmful behaviors. Yet, kids are never shown the consequences of these choices. Making wise media choices is crucial, but it’s a hard lesson to learn sometimes, especially for our teens.
Tina is also a homeschooling mom to her four kids and uses her experiences in Hollywood to speak to these current issues. Her mission is to challenge the next generation to live counter-culturally.
So she created the Counter Culture Mom.
The Counter Culture Mom Site
Her site is a treasure trove of information for moms who want to be alerted to alarming trends in the culture and entertainment that their kids might be exposed to. Staying on top of pop culture is a must if we want to raise Godly children with a Biblical worldview. And the Counter Culture Mom site will help you do just that.
You can see Tina’s appearances on podcasts and television. In addition, her blog includes articles like these that will help Christian parents:
- Family Mealtimes are Important, But Why?
- How to Overcome the Evil of the Equality Act
- Enneagram: Helpful Tool or a Distraction From God?
- 10 Truths to Teach Your Kids for Biblical Success
- How to Talk to Your Kids About Homosexuality
The Counter Culture Mom App
So in addition to her useful website, Tina also has a helpful app of the same name. The app gives regular alerts to pop culture news that you’ll want to be aware of.
