Discipleship In The Home was born in Dr. Friedeman’s own home, as the father of six, and in the classroom, as a professor of Christian Education at Wesley Biblical Seminary. It is a wonderful blend of practical wisdom built on a firm Biblical foundation. It teaches:
How to create a family discipleship routine using a powerful family catechism for the dining room table
How to take simple steps you need to begin teaching your children (or grandchildren!) to love Jesus more.
How to help your children to memorize Scripture
How to get and maintain laser-focus on the most important things for your family
How to plan a meaningful father/son or mother/daughter retreat and rites of passage celebrations.
Darrell Stetler II (a small church pastor and dad of 7) and NewStart Discipleship added to the book a Resource Notebook that allows you to create a discipleship plan for children that you could start by tonight.
The Discipleship In the Home Resource Notebook will help you implement a family discipleship time, in the evening or at your dinner table, and create valuable moments where your children learn:
* Great hymns of the church
* Great prayers & quotes from Christian history
* The 3 great Creeds of Christian history: Apostles, Nicene, Athanasian
* 18 Key Bible passages to memorize first (153 verses)
* Catechism questions that will teach them core theology
* Available in KJV, ESV, and NIV – your choice
