An Open Letter to Parents Feeling Unequipped to Disciple Their Kids by Ryan Lister
 
Family discipleship is a clear instruction in the Bible, but if we are honest, it can be an intimidating task. Lister addresses this fear and some misconceptions while providing good perspective, tips, and encouragement. He speaks to the importance of specific times of discipleship, but making sure that it is an ongoing process that is not simply diminished to a distinct time and process:
 
“We also need to stop compartmentalizing discipleship. Often times we put too much pressure on ourselves, our children, and our processes. Now, there are a lot of good resources on family worship and training kids in righteousness and we should pursue these and do these well. But we miss out if this is the only time discipleship happens at specific times in our homes. The danger of formalizing discipleship so tightly is that we can easily start to see our kids as projects rather than souls and gifts from the Lord. “
