The winner is Amy!! Congratulations!
One hour a week is not enough. 3-4 hours a week is still not enough. Friends, the church just isn't enough for our children. Yes, it's a tremendous support and great tool but Christian families need more. As parents, we need to step up and acknowledge the amazing privilege we've been given. God has blessed us- Moms and Dads- with the job of teaching and guiding our children in His ways. To be honest, if I were being graded in discipleship I'm not quite sure I would pass and I'm pretty sure that I'm not alone. After all, the home is often the most neglected mission field. Ouch. Kimberly Williams has written Home Discipleship for all Christian parents that want more for their children than the world offers. It's a powerful book filled with guidance and grace. Amen!
"Think of the parents as the builders, God as the architect, and His word as the blueprints needed to build a Christian home."
Home Discipleship isn't just for homeschoolers. "It is not so much instruction for the mind, but for the soul. It is not elevated by man's standards, but by God's." Kimberly Williams words really hit the mark with me. I'm often guilty of "living in the world and not living in the Word" and this book has me excited about the future for my family- especially my girls. Take a peek at all my sticky notes!
I truly appreciated the author's personal experiences and how she was able to learn and grow from them. Through her words she guides readers in a confident and caring manner. Using Bible verses to illustrate her points and Practical Application questions as the end of each chapter, you'll feel like you've experienced a powerful parenting class by the end of this book. Home Discipleship provides you with a game plan. One that will stay with your children for the rest of their lives. Like most parents, I relied on the church to guide my children but I now know there's so much more that needs to happen in the home.
