Wholesome Family Friendly Entertainment Ideas | Movies, Books, Shows, Games & Activities

Updated: Jun 25

The struggle is real in this world today to find wholesome movies and activities that are safe for our hearts and minds. So many things interwoven into the entertainment that many of us would rather not take into our hearts or have pass through the eyes of the precious children in our lives. I had posted a few movie recommendations recently, and has a few requests for a full list. This blog post is in conjunction with a YouTube video that I made on this topic, If you are interested in that, the video is at the bottom of this blog. This is certainly not an exhaustive list, but I hope it gives you a few good ideas. I also have to preface this with the thought that 'wholesome' and 'family friendly', may vary from household to household. What I consider wholesome, may not be right for your family, and that is completely understandable. Please review all content before exposing your children to it. Some of the things on this list will also vary in their appropriateness, depending on someone's age.

*Many of the things mentioned on this list will be on my Amazon storefront, with easy to click links*

"The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness! If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! “

Matthew 7:22-23
