UPDATED: Today I’m Teaching at Teach Them Diligently: What’s the Point of Popular Culture and Why Should Parents Care?
Today, I’m helping with Teach Them Diligently’s virtual conference for Christian home educators!1 You can register for this amazing event to hear my talk: What’s the Point of Popular Culture and Why Should Parents Care?
For Christian parents, all these movies, shows, games, music, and beyond can feel overwhelming! Is there any point to all this popular culture, and why does it exist in God’s world in the first place? In this course, E. Stephen Burnett (coauthor of The Pop Culture Parent: Helping Kids Engage Their World for Christ, with Ted Turnau and Jared Moore) uses gospel perspective to discern the biblical purpose of popular culture. Then we discover five fantastic questions to help you and your kids explore stories and songs for God’s glory together.
Of course, that’s inspired by themes from my first book, The Pop Culture Parent: Helping Kids Engage Their World for Christ (by Ted Turnau, Jared Moore, and myself).
The Pop Culture Parent releases Sept. 7, 2020 from New Growth Press.
Many others are also speaking at Teach Them Diligently, like filmmaker Stephen Kendrick, or the authors of Trim Healthy Mama.
Here’s the event description:

- In the original timeline, this week I would have visited Louisville for Together for the Gospel, then Cincinnati for Great Homeschool Conventions. ‘Tis amazing how events can shift so suddenly—cf. James 4:13–15. ↩
