Captivated DVD Review and Giveaway!


Media Talk 101 is a nonprofit Christian ministry that offers Biblical help for a media saturated society.  They offer seminars, resources, and guidance from a biblical perspective, and this is where I heard about the movie Captivated.

Captivated is a Christian documentary about the impact of Social MediaI was immediately interested in this movie because I believe that media is a big problem our society faces.

Did you know that the average teen consumes 7.5 hours of media each day and the average person watches 4.7 hours of TV a day?

Not only that, but by the time the average child is 18 they will have witnessed 200,000 acts of violence and 16,000 murders on TV!!

Those are just a few of the very scary statistics! 

All you have to do is go out to lunch and count the number of children and adults using their phones, iPods, and game systems.  Texting, tweeting, messaging, and playing games.  Do people even talk face to face anymore?

It's an addiction!  

How do we end the cycle?  Can we end it?  Can we even go a few days without electronics...a few hours?

I would encourage you to watch the video trailer for Captivated and then tune it to watch a special online premier on April 25th, 26th, and 27th at 7pm EST.  Please share this with your friends and family!

Find Out More:  You can find out more online at Media Talk 101.  Check out the steps you and your family can take in your life regarding media discernment.  The visit the Media 101 Online Store.  The Captivated DVD with Study Guide is just $19.95.

I'd like to win because I've been discussing with friends not only how addicted we are to social media, but how things that happen online are starting to saturate into our real lives. People are ugly to each other online and then I feel bad about it for the rest of the day.
