Family Friendly Movie Awards from Plugged In

The Oscars used to be a big night for TV watching but it seems like in our fast-paced world they are LONG, full of political statements and questionable family safe viewing.  KSWP values its partnership with Focus on the Family’s Plugged In feature for helping steer to good choices when it comes to family entertainment.  It seems only natural to highlight winners of the Plugged IN movie awards including people’s choice awards.

The Plugged In Movie Awards are about honoring what we feel are among the year’s best movies—not just aesthetically, but inspirationally and ethically as well.

Your Power Thought:



pray when you dont know what to doPlease Pray – Father God, I praise you and give thanksgiving for pr0tecting my husband during his motorcycle accident. I pray that you allow him to be healed quickly. I pray he seeks and finds you first and foremost and in all things. I pray you strengthen us and help us put Christ first in our marriage. Amen #prayerworkskswpkavx


self-brakingSelf-Breaking Cars: Major U.S. automakers struck a deal with the federal government mandating that by 2022 most cars will have breaks that think for themselves. The deal was reached as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration continues to look for ways to bring the number of roadway accidents down. The breaks would automatically activate if the driver is too slow to react in a potentially dangerous situation.

Self-driving cars -Need to make way for self-driving tractors. The first GPS-guided tractor is expected to go to work within weeks at an Idaho potato farm. The tractor is about half the size of a normal machine, and has no steering wheel or seat. The company hopes to build 60 more this year, and has already received commitments for 100 of the driverless tractors.

Never3XsGiveUpYour Power Though:

prayerPrayerWorks: Pray for Olivia – Pray for my friends daughter who is very sick. She sent this information to FB friends today. “We have been moved to ICU for further monitoring and more extensive testing because of her issues with having Hurler’s. The only thing we know at this point is we are dealing with two issues- neurological and urological. The questions are…are the two related, is this infectious, and are the issues related to her immunosuppression as a result of the bone marrow transplant. She is a very sick little girl. Thank you for all of your sweet comments and especially your prayers.” #prayerworkskswpkavx

“Before I bring my need, I will bring my heart.  Before I lift my cares, I will lift my arms. I wanna know you.  I wanna find you.”  A song about searching… Each month, 550,000 people search for the meaning of life on Google. Our culture offers four main answers to this question, ranging from ‘life is meaningless’ to ‘life is a joke’.
There was one chief purpose of the wise men, and that was to seek the Christ child.  They brought their hearts.  They lifted their arms in worship, and then they brought gifts.
All they wanted was what is sung in this song:  “I wanna know you.  I wanna find you.”  Perhaps that can be your prayer, today? Seeking God first with all your being! Lauren Daigle – First (Lyric Video)

Dec. 17, 2015 Good Friend Conversations

A Charlie Brown Christmas: This week A Charlie Brown Christmas aired on national prime time television for the 50th time. In a world where the latest greatest technology is outdated in a matter of months, and social media trends come and go in a matter of days, 50 years of anything becomes quite meaningful.

I am a fan of all things nostalgic and all things Christmas, and so when the two are combined I am hooked, and the Charlie Brown Christmas special falls squarely into that category. (Read More)

PrayerWorks: Earlier prayed for God to create time for surgery for my brother to have surgery on a specific date. Here it is 14 days later and I just received word the space has been created and he will have his surgery. Thanks to all of you for your prayers. Again a grateful thanks.  #prayerworkskswpkavx
