Check out the replay below of our chat with Katie J. Trent about Family Discipleship and how you are fully equipped to disciple your kids with fervor!
3 Common Misconceptions:
1. My husband has to lead it
*Mothers are natural teachers and nurturers. We play an integral part in family discipleship. If your husband wants to facilitate family discipleship times, great, but if not, don’t try to force him.
2. Discipleship only happens during dedicated times
*Jesus taught His disciples in many different ways throughout their days! He used stories, teachable moments, conversations, and demonstrations. We should too.
3. I need a curriculum to disciple my kids
*The Bible has a solution for every problem we face. We don’t need a fancy curriculum to disciple our kids, though we can certainly utilize additional tools and resources if we want.
