For Parents and Porn-Addicts: A New Way to Watch Movies


television-899265_1280

I strongly believe that those of us in recovery from sexual addiction should diligently guard our eyes. In early recovery I was vigilant to only watch movies of a particularly low rating or ones where the sensuality was edited out and these personal boundaries helped me achieve and maintain success. Now, as a father, I have additional reasons to filter what media comes into my household. There is so much visual sewage that can splash into my home if I am not careful.

For all of these reasons, I am grateful to learn about a resource called VidAngel that allows the streaming of online movies….with all of the junk edited out. I am looking forward to enjoying this resource and sharing it with others.

My young son and I are nearing an anticipated week long train trip across the country and I am looking forward to watching some great movies with him without the worry of what his innocent eyes will see (or what his ears will hear). If you too care about these issues, I invite you to check out VidAngel. May we all learn to enjoy great entertainment in ways that lift our spirits rather than tempt us away from our deepest commitments and our dearest values. Click here to check out VidAngel.
