Helping Teens Become Wise with Their Screens

Posted on: 05/15/19 3:22 AM | by Jonathan McKee

How should parents, mentors, teachers and youth workers respond to a generation that can’t seem to pry their eyes from their screens? The answer is conversations… and here is a YouTube video where I present four necessary conversations we need to have with today’s young people!

This is a talk I gave at Summit Ministries’ Basecamp event in Colorado Springs last week… and they just posted my talk to YouTube! The topic was helping teens become wise with their screens… only 30 minutes and change. Enjoy! (He introduces me at 4 minutes and 30 seconds into the video.)

A fun conversation on Moody Radio

Posted on: 05/6/19 3:00 AM | by Jonathan McKee

Today (Monday, May 6th) I am really looking forward to the conversation with my friend Chris Brooks live on Moody radio. We’re talking about how we can actually help “distracted” young guys today.

Over the last several years I’ve had the opportunity to be the guest on Chris’ show, “Equipped with Chris Brooks” and it’s always one of my favorite interactions (shhhhhh…. don’t tell anyone!)

Chris brings wisdom, authenticity and relevance to conversations about parenting and apologetics… in other words, people walk away blessed after hearing him. So I thoroughly enjoy my conversations with him because it’s not so much just him “asking me” …but a dialogue about important subjects like the one we’re tackling today, “How can we actually provide young guys with a helpful strategy to face life’s distractions?”

He’s also giving away a handful of copies of my new book on the subject, the book that just released this last week, The Guy’s Guide to FOUR BATTLES Every Young Man Must Face.

Tune in to our conversation… more about where to listen (or listen online) HERE.

Fortnite, Weed, Porn and Struggles with Self

It’s never been more difficult to be a young guy.

Today my brand new book hits the shelves, including Amazon’s shelves… a book to teen guys about the four biggest distractions today’s guys face:

SCREENS

SUBSTANCES

SEXUAL TEMPTATION

STRUGGLES WITH SELF

Like my previous Guy’s Guide book, this new book is brutally honest to today’s guys about what it means to be a man of God today, especially when the little device in our pocket is telling us plenty of lies about who we are and what’s good for us. It’s a perfect gift for a guy… better yet… a perfect discussion opener for a dad to go through with his son at breakfast each week.

Here’s a peek at the four battles I address:

Grab the book today… Amazon has it for less than $10 bucks! I pray it helps you open the doors of dialogue with young guys about stuff that matters!
