Chapter 6: Discipleship
“This is the heart of discipleship – helping our children reach the point in their lives where they are concerned first and foremost with what their heavenly Father thinks, and as a result are trying to please Him in all that they think, say, and do.” pg. 126-127
I love how Zan points out the Greek word for discipleship: one who engages in learning through instruction from another. Discipleship is really living together with our kids and constantly engaging them in truth. Discipleship doesn't have to be this strange, complicated, mystical thing. It's just intentionally living life with our kids and pointing them to God.
