Parent Resources

My goal as the Counselor of the Middle School at Wesleyan Christian Academy is to partner with you and to help you any way I can during these Middle School years. I have included below some links of web sites that might be of help to you at different times. Please feel free to contact me any time with questions or concerns you may have. My office is always open to you and to your student.

PARENTING LINKS

Al Menconi Ministries

Al Menconi Ministries is an evangelical, non-denominational para-church ministry.  Al Menconi Ministries offers a balanced, responsible, biblical approach that teaches Christians how to think, rather than just what to think. A crucial aspect of this ministry concerns the entertainment media. In the spiritual warfare of this life, entertainment is the often ammunition that shoots down our faith.   

Plugged In Online

Plugged In Online is a Focus on the Family publication designed to shine a light on the world of popular entertainment while giving families the essential tools they need to understand, navigate and impact the culture in which they live. Through our reviews, articles and discussions, we hope to spark intellectual thought, spiritual growth and a desire to follow the command of Colossians 2:8: "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ."

Helping Families Thrive

Focus on the Family is a global Christian ministry that helps build thriving marriages that reflect God’s design, and equips parents to raise their children according to morals and values grounded in biblical principles. They come alongside families as a guide to everyday, real issues by responding at their point of need with relevance, excellence and grace; protecting and helping them guard themselves from the harmful influences of culture; teaching about God and His beautiful design for the family; and mobilizing and equipping families to reach out beyond themselves to impact the lives of others.
