Garrett Godsey, with guitar, is pictured with a group of REAL girls and REAL boys from the Indianapolis area. He created the song “Digital Demon,” which focuses on sexting problems among teens. Godsey’s father is a 1985 Bedford North Lawrence High School graduate.
Youth leaders, teachers and teenagers will gather for a free event at the Lighthouse Christian Bookstore from 6-8 p.m. Oct. 9. The event will include a video screening of “Digital Demon,” a B SMRT message by Katie Wolfe of Get REAL inC, and concerts by local teen band “Washington and Out” and teen musician and songwriter Garrett Godsey of Avon. Throughout the event, prizes will be drawn for youth leaders and teens, and from 5 – 6 p.m. guests can meet those involved in “The Digital Demon” video project.
“The Digital Demon” music video of Garrett Godsey’s original song raises awareness on the possible dangers of sexting while addressing peer pressure, cyber-bullying, harassment, consequences and depression. The message also offers hope to those who may have made the choice and shows that the responses of others is critical.
“I chose to host this event because I know the importance of facing this topic that is destroying and taking lives,” Brenda Harrison, owner of Lighthouse Christian Bookstore, said in a prepared statement. “This video attacks this topic head-on in a way that relates to teens.”
Bedford North Lawrence High School students Allyson Adams, Abby Adams and Kylie Rife joined dozens of teens from across the state to re-enact this dramatic interpretation.

A Song About Love by Charlie McDonnell
One of the greatest things about launching new websites is finding terrific friends who share the same passions. We’re thrilled to introduce to you some of our friends and their site, Clash Entertainment ( www.clashentertainment.com)
Meet Ken Raney and Clash Entertainment. It speaks for itself.
Clash Entertainment, Inc. announces clashentertainment.com – a new entertainment/portal website for Christian teenagers!
July 1, 2010 – Clash Entertainment, Inc. is pleased to introduce clashentertainment.com! ClashEntertainment.com is an entertainment/portal website designed to be so rich and deep with entertaining media, that teens will want to visit, and stay for sustained periods of time. The site is updated daily with fresh content that includes news, reviews, and interviews in the fields of music, movies, books, games, comics, sports, career information, and more. There also is a huge list of links to other Christian websites of interest to teens.
To encourage interactivity and participation by teens, an exciting feature is the “MyLife” section which allows teens to let the world know about their life: what they are watching, reading, doing, thinking, prayer requests, pose questions, encourage others, etc. Also, visitors can comment on any article for even more interactivity.
The site has been in operation for over 5 months, and there are thousands of items that have been loaded – making the site very rich in content to keep visitors interested for hours and hours.
“A site like this offers much to the Christian community,” says Ken Raney, president of Clash. “Teens will have access to entertaining, enlightening, and even edifying media; Christian creatives will have an outlet to use their gifts for the Lord and His Kingdom; and Christian publishers will now have access to the teen market, something that has been very difficult in the past.”
“We have a passion for Christian teens,” said Raney. “We want to see to it that they have available to them entertaining media that doesn’t undermine their faith. The Christian teen is the most under-served demographic in media. We believe the Lord has led us to begin to fill that gap. We also believe that soon the window of opportunity will be flung wide open and we will see an explosion of excellent entertainment media for teens.”
The name Clash comes from Ephesians 6:12,
“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” (NLT)
