Are you tired of watching garbage on TV? Then check this out!
Here is a list of the best Christian movies for families. You don’t need to settle for entertainment that doesn’t glorify God. In fact, what you put into your mind will eventually come out of your heart.
Have you heard the saying,” Garbage in, garbage out?”
Pin it for later!
Think about it. How many of you have had a nightmare after watching a yucky movie?
Actually, it wasn’t even a horror movie. I watched The Fly and was a mess for weeks. I kept dreaming I was having a big larva for a baby. True story.
The point is that what you read, listen to, and watch frames your thinking. Furthermore, it affects the way you feel about yourself.
There have been a few times I have felt gross after watching a movie with lots of language, violence, etc. I felt like taking a shower when it was over. Have you ever felt that way? This scripture reminds us of why.
Psalm 23:7 says, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he”(KJV).
What Is the Impact of Entertainment?
Here is another real-life example of how entertainment can impact your family. My daughter had a very bad concussion last year. She spent several months in bed in sheer agony with migraine headaches.
We did all the right medical things, but emotionally she was still struggling. It was then that we looked for the best Christian movies for families and found War Room.
We watched the movie as a family, and it changed her life. (This is one of the best Christian movies for families I highly recommend.)
In the movie, the main character, Miss Sadie, had a prayer closet. She spent hours on her knees praying for a very difficult situation. Miss Sadie had notes on the wall, lists, and scriptures everywhere. She did not give up until God moved.
My daughter decided to do the same thing. She put up scriptures, lists, verses, etc. and started praying. And then God moved in small but sustainable ways. Prayer changed her life. In fact, now she is well.
It all started with the movie War Room. What you allow in your life will impact the way you live it. Put good things in your mind, and it will change your heart.
Proverbs 4:23 says, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it” (NIV).

The best Christian movies for families are the ones that reinforce good family values or teach a valuable lesson. These movies do just that. Be careful as some of the content may deal with heavy subjects such as abortion, drugs, and abuse. It would be good to watch them together as some of the content is for older kids.
Now go pop some popcorn, grab a blanket, and snuggle up on the couch together. It may be one of the best days you spend with your kids while you are stuck at home. In fact, it may just change their worldview on a very important subject.
FYI: I just got PureFlix. It has some of these movies on there! I love it.
