3 Spiritual Lessons from Meet the Robinsons

It’s not just a kid’s movie! There are actually 3 HUGE spiritual lessons from Meet the Robinsons that are great for adults and children alike. ?

Special thanks to Jessica Meades for today’s guest post!

Meet the Robinsons is a cute Disney film that came out several years ago. I had seen it before, but it was only recently that I watched it again with fresh eyes. I’ll try not to give too much away for those of you who haven’t seen it yet, but no promises. (If you’d like to watch it first and then come back to this post, it’s currently available on Netflix!)

My friend Laura has written about spiritual lessons that we can learn from cartoons with our children, specifically My Little Pony (and MORE My Little Pony!), which is her favorite, and that got me thinking: Read More

3 More Spiritual Lessons from My Little Pony

Have you ever discovered hidden spiritual parallels in your child’s favorite cartoons? If you’re looking for a great way to help your kids find God in everyday life, be sure to check out these 3 Spiritual Lessons from My Little Pony!

We talked a while back about the 3 Spiritual Lessons I learned from watching My Little Pony with my daughter. And today, we’ve got 3 MORE Spiritual Lessons from My Little Pony for you!

It’s always amazing how God decides to show up and teach us through modern-day entertainment.  What I’ve been thinking about a lot lately has to do with the concept of the “cutie mark” in My Little Pony — and all 3 of today’s lessons come from this one foundational aspect of the show.

The basic idea of a cutie mark is that it’s a cute, little symbol on a pony’s flank that represents her special talent, what she is meant to do with her life. Ponies are born with “blank flanks” (no cutie mark) and have to figure out what they’re good at before it will appear.

Getting a cutie mark is a BIG deal for the ponies!

In my mind, earning a cutie mark is similar to our discovering our purpose or our calling in life, unearthing hidden talents and gifts meant to be shared with the world. And when we think about cutie marks in that light, they have MUCH to teach us about our own gifts and the God who gives them to us. Read More

3 Spiritual Lessons from My Little Pony

Wait… what?? Did you really just say I could learn “Spiritual Lessons from My Little Pony,” Laura? Have you lost your mind?!

Nope, nope. Actually, I’m quite IN my right mind at the moment, and it feels GREAT!

I had a bit of spiritual awakening this past week. Almost as if God gave me a good Gibbs’ smack upside the head, and I finally realized what He had been trying to tell me for about a year now. ? I can be a little dense, apparently… ?

More on that revelation at a later date. Suffice it to say, I’m finally listening, and God has had PLENTY to say!

For now, on to My Little Pony!
