As we near the end of 2023, would you please consider a year-end gift to support the Schoolhouse Rocked ministry?



"Just because it says 'family friendly,' just because it says 'safe,' doesn't mean that it adheres to or is neutral to the Christian values we work so hard to teach throughout the day." — Chris Gonzales

Chris Gonzales, of GoodTube Kids joins Yvette Hampton for a deep dive into the dangers of the digital realm and the importance of protecting our children in this ever-evolving digital landscape. He shares his personal experiences and insights as a law enforcement officer, pastor, and homeschool dad, highlighting the critical role fathers play in raising their daughters and setting an example of what a Godly man looks like. Chris also emphasizes the integration of faith into all aspects of life, challenging the cultural message that tells young people to separate their faith from other areas. Join us as we explore the power of intentional parenting, the battle for our children's hearts and minds through social media, and the need for strong apologetics in today's world. Stay tuned as we learn valuable lessons and gain practical wisdom from Chris Gonzales on the Schoolhouse Rocked Podcast.

Come back Wednesday and Thursday for the rest of this important conversation.

Faith, Family, and the Apologetics in the Digital Age - Chris Gonzales, Part 1

Watch this full conversation on our YouTube channel.

Chris Gonzales resigned from the FBI after 14 years as a Special Agent when he realized the biggest threat we face today is in the war for the hearts and minds of our youth.

As parents, we often just don’t realize the incredible amount of terrible content and messaging forced onto our youth through social media and on-demand content such as YouTube Kids, Netflix, Disney, and Nickelodeon. Chris wrote an e-book called Poisoned Candy to tell parents about the dangers of children’s media.  Parents feel like they have nowhere to turn to find good content in a safe environment; so, after nineteen years in law enforcement, Chris felt God was calling him to a new fight to protect children in the digital realm. Chris launched GoodTube Kids to create a safe place for kids and a resource for parents all in one place.
