Giving Away a Book You Need!

 photo gpbpfrontcoversml_zps64faebc6.jpg


Have you seen this book yet? Good Pictures Bad Pictures? 

It's an amazing read-aloud tool for parents. On how to porn-proof their kids. A book I feel so strongly about I reviewed it for both Meridian Magazine and Power of Moms. Please read my review at Power of Moms today. 

I want to tell every parent I know: You NEED this book! For all the reasons why, including how I've used it recently with my children, click over to my review. 

Power of Moms is giving away five free copies. Just leave comment at the end of my review there. I will choose 5 winners a week from today. 

I'm also giving away a copy here. Read the review and leave a comment here, on my personal blog, as to why you think this book would be helpful. Or tell me what you learned. I will choose a winner next Tuesday. Comments open until then.

For an LDS Church slant on the topic, you can read my review at Meridian. Link to new Family Home Evening lessons on the topic at the end of the review.

Oh! And don't miss Kristen Jenson's offer for $5 off the book. Promo code in the POMs review.

All this is the nitty-gritty of where to go and how to win/buy. But what really matters is that you get a copy of the book. Never before have I had concrete tools to give my children when it comes to battling pornography. This book revolutionized how I approach the topic with them. I no longer feel discouraged or fearful. I feel empowered. And so do they.

  2. I just finished reading and commenting over at Power of Moms but I'll take an "extra" chances to win. We've talked with our kids a bit with some stories from The Friend but I love the action plan details about Good Pictures, Bad Pictures you mentioned and think it would help us have ongoing discussions. I'm curious too about the thinking/feeling brain which makes sense but I don't know much about yet. Thanks for sharing this book all over the Web.

  3. Broaching this topic with my first son (now 5) scares and overwhelms me but this book definitely makes it seem more doable!

  6. From Suzanne JC: As my hubby and I strive to raise 5 children (4 boys), the lure of pornography scares us since it has already destroyed the lives of 2 beloved family members. Just this week, our Thanksgiving feast had a dark cloud over it as a nephew's addiction landed him in prison. Talking about pornography in appropriate ways is the best way we can think to combat/ prevent addiction, but these are conversations that I never dreamed of having to have when I began motherhood just over a decade ago. I'd love this resource to help me know what to say, how to say it, and to help it become a comfortable topic. Pornography flourishes in secrecy and this book is a tool to help bring it into the light. Thanks for the review!

  7. Katherine, you are such an inspiration!
    Thank you so much for sharing this with us... I am excited to learn more about the action plan and present it to our boys who are growing up and will soon be faced with temptations and difficult situations...

  11. My husband and I have been wanting to get this book to read with our children. What a great resource! I love the idea of teaching my kids about the thinking brain and feeling brain, and giving them a plan of action when they are faced with disturbing material. Thank you for the review!

  13. I have recently seen pornography almost destroy a family that I am very close to. It was a devastating discovery, particularly because the person involved is one of the last people I would have imagined to have this addiction. I am learning that good people fall prey to pornography, particularly when they are innocently exposed at a young age. This makes me fear more than ever that my four year old twin boys and my one year old girl are growing up in a world where pornography is so easily accessible and exposure is often unavoidable. I am trying to have faith and be proactive, but it is still a daunting problem to tackle. We have already talked with our boys about it, but I would love to have the book as another resource. It sounds wonderful and I love that you feel empowered after reading it! This is definitely a discussion that will be ongoing in our family.

  15. Loved listening to this podcast on the Power of Mom's website and reading your review there as well! Pornography is something that does need to be talked about-- and having the tools to do so will make it so much more helpful!

    Thanks for always being an advocate for good!

  16. Definitely looking to share this with more parents and grandparents. I would love to have a copy to share. Or to replace the one I gave someone to borrow and never got it back. It's ok. It is worth passing on and passing forward.

  17. My parents' stake president recommended this book to all the members of the stake. He even works for the Church in some department that works with preventing pornography.

  20. I have had what I believe to be age-appropriate conversations about this with my 6-year-old daughter for the last year or so because I first saw pornography when I was 7 and I had no idea what it was or what I should have done. And that was before computers and the internet! I'd like to do whatever I can to help my children and others navigate through the treacherous and filthy waters of today's media.
