Episode 227: A Conversation With Karen Kingsbury. Plus Boundary Basics


At Plugged In, we spend a lot of time thinking about stories—how they influence and mold our behaviors, values and worldviews. And every so often, we get to talk to the folks making these stories.

This week on The Plugged In Show, I’m talking with prolific Christian author Karen Kingsbury. She’s written nearly 100 books—and counting! One of those stories, Someone Like You, makes its way to the big screen, courtesy of Fathom Events, next week. Meanwhile, another fan-favorite series of hers, The Baxters, is also debuting on Prime Video this week. If you’re a fan of Karen’s writing, you won’t want to miss our conversation.

And in our second segment, we’re continuing to unpack themes and ideas from the Plugged In team’s new book, Becoming a Screen-Savvy Family. This week, we’re talking about some of the basics in terms of establishing and maintaining healthy entertainment and screen boundaries with our families. 

As always, we’d love to hear from you and engage your thoughts on the topics we cover each week. You can connect with us in several different ways. The comments section below is one method. Or shoot us an email at [email protected].

And if you head over to our podcast homepage,, you’ll find a black ribbon on the right-hand side of the page where you can leave us a voicemail with your thoughts—we might even feature your audio message on a future show. And, of course, Facebook and Instagram are options, too.

And if there’s anything else on your mind when it comes to movies and entertainment, pop culture and technology, we’d love to hear what you’re thinking about. We’ll look forward to connecting with you.
