Whenever I’m driving in the car with my kids, I feel like I spend a lot of time monitoring the songs on the radio for inappropriate messages or language. Sometimes it seems like a neverending job. And as a busy mom of four, that’s the last thing I need to be spending my time doing.
That’s why I was pleasantly surprised the other day when I heard the song “Pray” by Justin Bieber on the radio. Now I’ll admit it. I have never quite understood the uproar over this young man. In fact, until recently I had never heard one of his songs. But I was pleasantly surprised when I heard this latest song. The message is one I can get behind and play in front of my kids without being on high alert. It seems those moments are few and far between these days.
Not long after hearing the song, I read this article about the teen pop sensation and his mom. It was a refreshing read, and I have to admit opened my mind a little more to the whole Justin Bieber phenomena. So this mom, a former unbeliever, must now confess to having just a little bit of “Bieber fever.”
