The Biggest Hits of 2017
Vengeance, Drugs, Self, and Sex... Without Regard
Jonathan McKee and David R. Smith

Glorification of violence, drugs and alcohol, vengeance, arrogance, degradation of females… and not one shred of regard for the consequences. Yep, just another year of music in America. 

Here’s a review of the twelve No. 1 songs that dominated the last twelve... 
JONATHAN'S BLOG: The Top 10 Apps of 2017
The year-end is almost here, and that always triggers our look back at the most popular songs, apps, books, posts… of the entire year.

We’ll start by looking at the top 10 free apps downloaded from the iTunes store in 2017… with Snap up at the top once again.

No, Snapchat wasn’t actually No. 1 like last year, but Bitmoji was, which is owned by Snap (nice purchase!), slipping Snapchat into No. 2 (I guess consumers missed the memo that Snapchat was having a rough year). And no… Pokemon Go didn’t make the list this year. (Pokemon who?)

Here’s the top 10!

  1. Bitmoji (not even in the top 10 last year)



  1. Snapchat (No. 1 last year)



  1. YouTube (up from No. 6 last year)



  1. Facebook Messenger (dropping from No. 2 last year)



  1. Instagram (same place as last year)



  1. Facebook (also same place)



  1. Google Maps (also same place)



  1. Netflix (up from No. 9 last year)



  1. Spotify (up from No. 10 last year)



  1. Uber (not even in the top 10 last year)

A Customizable Christmas
This resource from our OUTREACH AGENDAS page shows that even though Christmas has become extremely commercialized, the best gifts are those that come from the heart. 

Discussion Starter: The Story of The White Envelope 
It's just a small, white envelope stuck among the branches of our Christmas tree. No name, no identification, no inscription. It has peeked through through the branches of our Christmas tree for the past decade or so. It all began when my loving husband went

What are the rules for a relationship? This brand new resource from our MUSIC DISCUSSIONS page shows students what to do – and not do – when in a relationship.   

 

Discussion Starter: Meant to Be

We live in a time where relationships are becoming more casual.
